Why do you come to the Dachstein Salzkammergut for mountain biking? If you still haven't figured that out, you should try the mountain bike tour Iglmoos Runde. The mountain bike route leads mainly through the forest, but when the forest in the higher regions thins out, you will be knocked down by a fantastic view. What will not be revealed! The finish point, the Iglmoosalm ( https://dachstein.salzkammergut.at/oesterreich/gastronomie/102877/iglmoosalm.html ) with its terrace and view of a unique mountain panorama, is also a real place of power. And not only because Maria has a really delicious homemade Kaiserschmarren in her hut!

Start: Tourist information in Gosau - We drive from the opposite post office uphill, past the Gosau indoor swimming pool to the cemetery. There we turn right and follow the old pass Gschütt Straße to the B 166. After about 2 km we turn right uphill onto the gravelled forest road towards Iglmoosalm. After a short ascent we turn at 3.8 km onto the forest road Wegscheid, which leads to a fork in the road. After 4 km we turn left uphill towards Iglmoosalm, which we reach after another 2.4 km. Here we continue uphill for a short distance until we reach the turning point (a sign announcing the end of the route) We descend again to the Iglmoosalm, where we continue for another 2 km, then turn left and follow the forest road downhill. The route leads sharp right downhill towards Gosau and back to the district of Ramsau. After passing the barrier, we keep right on the asphalt road until we reach the main road, turn left and after 20m turn right again. So we roll in the direction of the wooden bridge, which leads over the Gosaubach, follow the narrow road to the right after crossing it and turn right again at the Vitalhotel back to the starting point.
