The Vitalwelt 7 Places Tour starts at the Tourist Info in Bad Schallerbach. Ride along the Trattnachtal Cycle Path R17 through the unique Botanica Park in the direction of Schlüsselberg.
Shortly before Grieskirchen, you can take a dip for a first refreshment in the Grieskirchen recreational pool. As you continue, you will pass through the district capital, which invites you to stroll and eat ice cream. As soon as you leave the city behind, you will have Tollet Castle in view.
Continue along the Trattnach through Taufkirchen an der Trattnach and Hofkirchen an der Trattnach, after Dirisam you change to the Cycle Path V4 towards Rottenbach.
For a first strengthening you should definitely stop in Rottenbach at theGuesthouse Mauernböck. In addition to delicious home cooking, regional delicacies such as Most dishes are also offered. Furthermore, the Guesthouse has a beautiful shady guest garden. Stay on the cycle path and in the village of Mühllehen change to Cycle Path V3 in the direction of Haag am Hausruck.
You should be able to see Starhemberg Castle from far away. Pay a visit to the picturesque Renaissance garden and the museum of local history. Make a short stop in Haag am Hausruck at the steepest town square in Upper Austria and get to know the hospitality in the many Guesthouses and cafes.
If you still have power and want to experience something, then come to the adventure mountain Luisenhöhe and discover the "path of the senses", the two panoramic observation towers or prove your skill in theforest high rope park GoRuck.
Now change to the Antiesen Cycle Path R23 in the direction of Geboltskirchen. Along the way, you can stop at a Mostschänke, or take a leisurely break at Guesthouse-Reiterhof Pichler or Ledererwirt in Geboltskirchen.
In Geboltskirchen you continue along the Trattnachtal Cycle Path R17. On an uphill slope you will reach directly the Hausruckwald in the area of the former brown coal mining to the Giselastollen and the Trattnach-Urpsrung. You should definitely pay a visit to the Scheiben coal station, take a fun ride on the trolley bike or take the diesel locomotive for a spin. A little refreshment is available here at the station's snack bar. In addition, you can also hike here along the 1.2 km long Trattnach-Ursprung Experience Trail.
Continue along the R17 Cycle Path to Oberentern. You should definitely take a detour to the farm store of Trauner's Most and fruit juices. If you are already hungry, you can also stop at Guesthouse Groiß, which serves fresh trout from its own pond every day.
As you continue your journey, you will pass directly by the lake Leithen, a perfect place for a short cool down. Do you feel like a culinary detour? Then we recommend the village of Marschalling: At Weingenuss Zöbl you can taste wines, oils & vinegars and in the beekeeping Zöbl forest and cream honey, honey wine and liqueurs are waiting for you.
Stay on the Cycle Path R17 and in Weibern then turn onto the Cycle Path V4 in the direction of Meggenhofen. Directly in Meggenhofen you then change again to the Cycle Path V6 in the direction of Gallspach.
If you or your e-bike would like to charge your battery, then you are in the right place in Gallspach. In the middle of the village at the municipal office there is a cyclist's rest: Here you can fill up your water bottles, charge your e-bike battery or take a short break at the benches. You can also use the break to visit the nearby nature experience park.
Out of town, you now ride along the V5 Cycle Path in the direction of Pichl bei Wels. In Uttendorf you continue along the Innbachtal Cycle Path V1 to Hilling. Here you follow the Trattnachtal Cycle Path R17 in the direction of Wallern. The cycle path leads you directly along the Trattnachtal nature trail back towards Bad Schallerbach.

1. The tours presented for hiking, walking, biking and road biking, mountain biking, motorbiking, horseback riding, climbing, cross-country skiing, snowshoe hiking etc. are to be considered non-paid tour recommendations and only serve as non-binding information. We have no intention of concluding a contract with the users of this website. The utilisation of the data does not lead to the establishment of a contract with us.
The data may only be used for private use; any commercial use is prohibited. In particular, it is not permissible to offer the data on commercially run websites, file-sharing platforms etc. or to use it to develop commercial products. Downloading data does not imply that users are granted rights to the data concerned.
The tour recommendations posted were created with utmost care; nevertheless, we assume no liability for the correctness and completeness of the information.
We point out that neither the tour recommendations included on this website nor the associated data and information were posted by us, but rather by third parties (Art. 16 Austrian E-Commerce Act). We have no influence on whether the details provided (e.g. distance, level of difficulty, change in altitude, description etc.) are authentic, correct and complete. We do not review these third-party contents. For this reason, we assume no liability for the authenticity, correctness and completeness of the information.
Construction-related measures or other influences (e.g. landslides and similar occurrences) can lead to temporary or permanent changes in a route (e.g. loss of a bridge and similar occurrences). Such occurrences can lead to part of the route or the entire route becoming impassable.
The use of the data as well as undertaking (riding, walking, taking etc.) the recommended tours or using the network of paths occurs at users’ own risk and on their authority. In particular, users themselves are responsible for the choice of route, outdoor orientation, adherence to traffic rules, supplies and equipment for tours listed in Point 1 (e.g. bicycle etc.), wearing a helmet, estimating their own fitness, recognising dangers and maintaining an appropriate velocity. We exclude ourselves from any liability whatsoever for damages, in particular accidents, that occur whilst taking part in the recommended tours.
2.Some of the tours lead over roads with normal traffic conditions. Please observe that there is an increased risk which can be avoided by means of appropriate attention and proper estimation and implementation of one’s own abilities. For this reason, please travel a route that is unfamiliar to you slowly and with special care. Pay constant attention to potential dangers and always observe traffic. Do not leave the routes featured in descriptions.
The potential use of private roads, in particular forestry roads and agricultural transport roads, can be subject to legal restrictions, which must be observed and adhered to.
The normal traffic rules apply. Each user (e.g. biker, motorbiker) is responsible for adhering to these rules and maintaining his/her bike/vehicle and its equipment (lights, brakes etc.) in good working order. Each user is also responsible for ensuring that he/she rides at a velocity that is appropriate for the conditions and his/her skill level and for maintaining sufficient distance to the rider in front. We explicitly recommend adjusting velocity to correspond to the respective field of vision, wearing a helmet, using reflective clothing (or similar) and employing bicycle lights in line with regulations.
3.Each tour requires good physical fitness as well as detailed planning. We explicitly recommend only taking the tours in the case of optimal healthiness.
We recommend that you conclude an accident and liability insurance policy. Use an onboard computer that displays the respective kilometres travelled per day and is calibrated for the front wheel.
4.Special for mountain bikers – Fair-play rules:
Mountain biking is one of the most wonderful outdoor leisure-time activities. Whilst biking or on a mountain biking tour, mountains and lakes, meadows and cabins are re-discovered in new ways. A couple of rules for fair play in the forest help to avoid conflicts whilst mountain biking.
a.Pedestrians have the right of way: We are accommodating and friendly to pedestrians and hikers. Upon encountering these fellow travellers, we alert them by using the bicycle bell and slowly overtake them. We avoid paths with heavy pedestrian traffic altogether. Take nature into account: We do not leave refuse behind.
b.The braking distance should be half of the total distance visible: We ride at a controlled pace, are ready to brake and maintain a braking distance half as long as the total distance visible, especially in curves, because we always have to count on obstacles on the path. Damage to the path, stones, branches, wood piles, grazing livestock, cattle grids, barriers, tractor-type forestry machines and authorised vehicles pose dangers that we need to be ready for.
c.Don’t drink and drive!: Do not drink alcohol when mountain biking. Take care at stop-off points (dealing with bike racks, dirty shoes or clothing).
It is obligatory to provide first aid!
d.Marked routes, closed paths and blockades: Keep to the marked routes, observe the blockades and accept that these roads are primarily for agricultural and forestry use!
Blockades can often not be avoided and are in your own interest. Biking beyond the intended path and outside of opening times is punishable and turns us into illegal bikers.
e.We are guests in the forest and behave accordingly, including vis-à-vis forestry and hunting staff. Whilst mountain biking, mobile telephones and music players are forbidden! Biking requires your full attention.
f.Avoid unnecessary noise. Out of consideration to the animals living in the wild, we only bike during full daylight. As a principle, we always wear our helmet (even when riding uphill)! Don’t forget emergency supplies: We always have a repair set and bandages along.
g.Don’t overestimate your skills: We should not overdo it when it comes to biking technique and physical fitness. Take the level of difficulty posed by the route into consideration and make a precise estimate of your experience and skills as a biker (braking, bell, lights)!
h.Close gates: We approach grazing livestock at a walking pace and close every gate behind us. We should avoid causing escape and panic reactions in the animals. Nothing stands in the way of the fun and athletic challenge in the mountains and forests!
i.Traffic rules: The general traffic rules (StVO) apply for all the mountain biking routes and we adhere to them. Our bike therefore needs to be in perfect technical condition and equipped in line with the traffic rules, including brakes, a bell and lights. We inspect and service our mountain bikes regularly anyway.
