Explore the Zell am See region
Cycling and mountain biking are among the most popular sports in Maishofen.

If you’re full of energy and prefer strenuous tours, you can truly let off steam on a ride up to Kammereggalm, up to Jahnhütte or starting from Thumersbach up to the 2,117 m high Hundstein.
From a leisurely family cycling tour to gourmet tours all the way to extreme tours for all mountain bike freaks, Austria offers everything you can ask for on your cycling holidays. Especially on a summer holiday in Maishofen and Zell am See, cycling fans will find sheer unlimited options!
Cycling in the mountains requires off-road experience and corresponding technique, because in order to get to the destination you need to pedal hard. Does that spark your ambition to test your limits, then? The Bikepark in Leogang is the Mecca for freestylers and downhill fans from across the world. Across roots, rocks, gravel and steep steps, riddled with jumps and breathtaking obstacles, the WC-route leads steeply downhill and back to the lower terminus of the Asitz-lifts.
