A classic mountainbike-tour in the region Ausseerland - Salzkammergut representing the heart of the tour "Dachsteinrunde" (also part of the former Alpentour Steiermark).

From the center of Bad Mitterndorf we start the tour in direction to the therma "GrimmingTherme" and further to Bad Heilbrunn and the lake "Salza-Stausee". At the kilometer 3,7 there is a turn to the right at a gate upwards.


Now it starts the true paradise for bikers: perfect graveled roads lead along rivers, mountain pastures with beautiful lookouts to a small lake called "Miesbodensee" and further to the popular mountain pasture "Viehbergalm" at a hight of 1445 meters, which is the highest point of the tour. There it is worth it stopping for meals and drinks while enjoying the unique beauty of the nature.  


After the refreshment the tour needs to be carried on along the graveled road until you reach the crossing named "Öfen", always along this road until you reach the area called "Lend/Winkl" just before the village Gröbming. After taking a break maybe you will go through Gröbming and then follow the route of the tour "R 7", a well marked tour called "Ennsradweg", which takes us to Trautenfels. Reaching Trautenfels we change to the main road and carry on the tour "R 19", which is the tour to Hallstatt called "Salzkammergutradweg".


Again the way back to Bad Mitterndorf is well marked. Leaving the last uphill behind, passing Tauplitz and the ski flying hill at the Kulm, you will reach the starting point in Bad Mitterndorf.

Author’s recommendation

Sensational downhill to Gröbming and the way back via Trautenfels, Klachau and Tauplitz.

Turn-by-turn directions

Wir fahren vom Ortszentrum von Bad Mitterndorf in Richtung Grimmingtherme und Bad Heilbrunn. Dort vorbei gelangen wir geradeaus zum Salza-Stausee. Bei km 3,7 zweigt der Forstweg halbrechts beim Schranken aufwärts ab.

Jetzt beginnt das Biker-Eldorado, denn eine herrlich gerichtete Forststraße führt entlang von Bächen, Almhütten und schöner Aussicht auf schroffe Felsen, vorbei am naheliegenden Miesbodensee zur bekannten Viehbergalm (1445 m), die einen der höchsten Punkte der Tour darstellt. Dort bekommt man als Belohnung die berühmten Ennstaler Krapfen. Wer will mit hervorragendem Steirerkas.

Nach der Stärkung geht es auf der Forststraße weiter bis man zur Kreuzung zu den "Öfen" kommt. Immer noch der Forststraße entlang kommen wir in den Ortsteil Lend/Winkl kurz vor Gröbming. Hier können wir noch eine kurze Pause einlegen und durchqueren Gröbming. Im Ortsteil Kaindorf steigen wir auf den Ennsradweg >R7< ein. Dieser ist hier gut beschildert und wir folgen ihm bis nach Trautenfels. Dort wechseln wir die Bundesstraße und steigen in den Salzkammergut-Radweg >R19< Richtung Hallstatt ein.

Auch hier kommen wir mit der Beschilderung gut zu recht. Lassen wir das letzte Bergstück, die Klachau hinter uns. Ebenso den Ort Tauplitz und die Skiflugschanze Kulm. Am nördlichen Fuße des Grimmings fahren wir wieder bis zur Grimmingtherme und somit kommen wir wieder am Anfahrtsweg Richtung Zentrum Bad Mitterndorf an.
