High valley of the Venediger mountain range
Due to its gentle gradients and its length, the Krimmler Achental is particularly suitable for exploring by mountain bike. From Krimml, a section leads along the Gerlos-Alpenstraße to the “Krimmler Tauernweg” turn-off (note: unlit tunnel).
If you don't want to climb the three steps of the Krimmler Wasserfälle with muscle power, you can use the Nationalparktaxi, with which you can also have your bike transported comfortably to the top step or to the Krimmler Tauernhaus (pre-registration with the Geisler family in the Krimmler Tauernhaus is essential! ). At the entrance to the Krimmler Achental you can expect an impressive mountain panorama and alpine pastures and lush pastures that end below the Krimmler Kees. The distance to the end of the valley under the mighty Dreiherrenspitze is approx. 20 km. The Krimmler Tauernhaus is located approx. 6 km before the end of the valley.
From Krimml to Passau, the Tauern Cycle Path leads from the heart of the Hohe Tauern National Park down the Salzach through the largest district of Salzburg, the Pinzgau, the Pongau and Tennengau to the historic state capital of Salzburg and on through the Innviertel in Upper Austria.
On this bike tour you will explore some of the most beautiful areas in Austria and see the varied landscapes in the mountains, in the foothills of the Alps and on the plain.
