The Mozart Cycle Track Following in the musical genius' tracks
The "Mozart Cycle Track" covers a distance of about 400 kilometres through Chiemgau, Salzburger Land and Berchtesgadener Land and reflects the life of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Following in the tracks of the musical genius from Salzburg, you will be also led to Bad Reichenhall.
The cycle track goes along (Lake) Saalachsee and Salinenstraße passing the ancient town hall and leads to Salzburg. Attractive sites within the part of the route leading through town are the old houses of the bourgeois families in Florianiplatz, about 50 sprinkling fountains, the Augustinian convent dating from the year 1136, the churches of St. Ägidi and St. Nikolaus as well as the ancient saltworks with still existing original brine pumps dating from the 18th century and the adjoined salt museum. And those who would like to enjoy the panoramic view from top of Mount Predigtstuhl, its summit exceeding 1600 metres altitude, can take a ride uphill in the historical gondola lift Predigtstuhlbahn, which has reliably taken hikers up the town's mountain for 75 years.
