Cycling Holiday in Salzburg and Mountain Biking in Bad Vigaun

Conquer the Schlenken summit either by mountain bike or E-bike: Variety on 2 wheels

“Phew! The mountain bike tour from Bad Vigaun to the Schlenkenalm via Adnet is really something. It’s a good thing that we have rented an E-bike for the day. The wonderful scenery is ample compensation for the length of the tour. As we pass through the wonderful scenery, the views become better and better the higher we get. At last the Schlenkenalm appears after a bend, and invites us for a lovely refreshment break. We have certainly earned this, even though we are with E-bikes…”
