This bicycle journey through Austria’s lake country follows delightfully traffic-free routes to baroque palaces, historic castles, mountain lookouts, and quintessential storybook landscapes. Pedal from Mondsee after your visit to the church used in The Sound of Music’s wedding scene to the shores of Attersee Lake, where you may opt for a boat ride to the picture-perfect village of Weyregg.
At Schorfling, you’ll see a castle that the painter Gustav Klimt depicted in his work before moving on to the brightly colored townscape and cobblestoned marketplace of Gmunden. Here, you can sail the Gisela, the last of the coal-fired paddle steamers, and take a cable car to the top of Grunberg for dazzling Alpine vistas and views of the 17th-century “floating castle” Seeschloss Orth. Ride through ancient forests to Emperor Franz Joseph’s former summer residence at Bad Ischl, take the St. Wolfgang cog railway to the summit of Schafberg, and head into the sky on the Zwolferhorn tramway. Then there’s Salzburg, a timeless urban masterpiece of baroque perfection, with must-see sights like the Hohensalzburg Fortress, beautiful Mirabell Gardens, and the Mozart Museum.
