Cycling for families & recreational bikers

Cycling tour with the family along the Enns cycle route
You will find the right route in the Schladming-Dachstein holiday region to suit your interest and level of fitness. For those who prefer a comfortable ride or prefer a simple bike ride for the whole family, the Ennsradweg (cycle route alongside the river Enns) is the best option.

Enjoy the magnificent view of the Schladming Tauern along the rippling river Enns, as you cycle past idyllic bathing lakes and cosy inns that invite you to come in and relax. The Enns cycle route is about 263 km long and leads from Flachau via Schladming and the Gesaeus and Kalkalpen national parks to Enns on the Danube.
