Description

The highlight of the Blaa Alm mountain bike tour:

--------------------------------------------------------------- The view of the picturesque Altausseersee in Styria ---------------------------------------------------------------

The Blaa Alm Mountain Bike Tour is the classic among the Salzkammergut Genusstouren. From Bad Goisern it goes to Altaussee and back via Bad Ischl. Whoever wants to explore the Innere Salzkammergut (https://www.dachstein-panorama.at/ ) has already experienced a lot with this tour, even if there is still a lot to discover. For us mountainbikers the tour is simple but not boring. The descent into the Rettenbachtal offers a technical challenge for one or the other. Beside the fantastic panorama the round trip offers enough rests to try the taste from the Salzkammergut ( https://dachstein.salzkammergut.at/detail/article/5210-die-delikatessen-des-salzkammerguts.html ).
