Route Description

Start in Gosau

We start in the centre of the tranquil village of Gosau. There is no train here. The nearest train stations are Obertraun, Bad Goisern and Golling an der Salzach. However, a bus connection is also possible. Please ask if you are allowed to take bicycles with you. Of course, it is also very easy to get there by car and there are plenty of parking spaces in the centre of the village.

Gosau is your idyllic starting point for your gravelrides in Salzkammergut.

The climbs at the beginning

We start from the village of Gosau on the road up to Pass Gschütt without any major detours. We take this road almost all the way to the top. Shortly before the top of the pass, we turn right onto a small forest road. This carries us even further up. Perfect gravel in the dense forest makes the graveller's heart beat faster and we arrive at the top.
We can catch a few beautiful views of the Gosaukamm and Dachstein massif from here, then we head back down towards Gosau.

The panorama above Gosau is worth every drop of sweat while cycling uphill.

Vordertal and Gosaubach

In Gosau we cycle along the Gosaubach stream towards Vordertal. On narrow roads and cycle paths, we reach the Vordertal reservoir. With a bit of luck, we can watch a few fishers here before we cross the Gosaubach and cycle along the forest towards Hintertal.
We cross the Gosaubach twice more and wind our way into Hintertal.

The path back into Gosau along the Gosaubach river is perfect for gravel bikes.

Back to Gosau

From here we ride without detours along the Gosaubach stream back to the village of Gosau. In Gosau you will find many places to stop for refreshments and accommodation to recover after your tour!
