Description

The Salvenradrunde is one of the most popular bike tours in the Tirolean lowlands. The tour is not the shortest, but the entire route is covered on beautiful bike paths, with little more than gentle gradients along most of the route. This is why this route is also ideal for families and leisure cyclists. In principle, the Salvenradrunde can be started from any location. Here we start in Itter at the village square (church) and ride to Hopfgarten with its historic center and the double-towered baroque church. Following cycle path no. 21 through the Elsbethen settlement area, the cycle path briefly joins the main road, but then quickly turns off right straight after the railway underpass, onto a quiet road through the stunning Windau valley. Continuing along the road the surface turns from tarmac to gravel, and as you cycle along next to the Windauache river the valley gets narrower resembling a gorge. From the Gasthof Jägerhäusl there is an asphalt road back to Westendorf, passing the golf course and going through the town center. The cycle path continues on to Brixen and Kirchberg, with numerous refreshment stops along the way. After going through the centre of Kirchberg the route continues next to the railway line to the Kitzbühel-Schwarzsee golf course. From there, the Salvenradrunde continues to Reith bei Kitzbühel, where you turn off after the football field following signs for Astberg and after a short climb and decent you join the river again towards Going. Before the Hotel Stanglwirt, turn left on to the path next to the stream, and continue on cycle path no.14 back through the towns of Going, Ellmau, Scheffau and Söll to the starting point of Itter. Along this part of the route you are accompanied by a stunning view of the Wilder Kaiser mountain range.
