What could be more beautiful than cycling along the lakeside paths under mountains?

Let your soul dangle in the magnificent natural landscape of the 10-Lakes-Lands.

Because all this and much more is offered by our “Ten Lakes Tour” through the Salzburg Lake District and the Salzkammergut. Join us on a vacation you and your family won’t soon forget – and that gives you back strength for the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Let’s go! Explore the charming Mozart city of Salzburg with all your senses. The charming old town attracts annually about nine million visitors under its spell.

Enjoy not only the Austrian delicacies around Kasnocken & Co, but also the special hospitality . The absolute highlight of the tour are of course the numerous lakes: Wallersee, Mondsee, Holzöster See, Trumer Seen: they are all waiting for you to jump in!
