Key facts of the tour
Part of this tour runs along the medieval salt trade route that led from Hallein in Austria across the Salzach river to the foothills of the Alps in Upper Bavaria. A highlight awaits you right away at the start in Burghausen: the town's fortress stretches over a length of 1043 metres. That is a world record. Most of the buildings were erected at the end of the 15th century by the Wittelsbach dynasty, who used the castle as a residence and state fortress. Today, everyone can enjoy the view of Burghausen and the Salzach from up there.

Much smaller, but still impressive, is the castle of Tittmoning with its more than 800 years of history. On the way there, Lake Leitgering invites you to refresh yourself or take a break in the beer garden. You cycle back to Burghausen directly along the banks of the Salzach. It is worth stopping at the former Raitenhaslach monastery. Here you will also find another nice place to stop for refreshments.
A cycling tour for nature lovers and culture enthusiasts.

Arrive relaxed and use rental bikes from the local rental companies. The capacity for taking bicycles on trains is limited and taking your own bike on the train cannot be guaranteed, depending on the capacity.

Direction

Leaving Burghausen, you have the opportunity to see the castle in full once. A good two kilometres further on, the route flanked by trees gives you a beautiful view into the valley of the Salzach.

Meadows and fields, villages with churches and tiled roof houses dominate the picture. From about Asten onwards, the alpine mountains can be seen more and more clearly in the distance.

You pass the Astener Moossee lake and shortly afterwards arrive at the Leitgeringer See lake. An ideal place for a break.

The route continues to Tittmoning on the "Salzhandelsweg" (Salzh) cycle path.

Lake Leitgering

Lake Leitgering is located about three kilometres north of Tittmoning. The main attraction in summer is the bathing area with sandy beach and sunbathing lawns. The diving board and slide provide special fun. The little ones can also let off steam on a playground and the older ones on pedal boats and stand-up paddleboards. The natural bathing lake is strongly bent and surrounded by a belt of trees. You can always find a shady spot for a picnic. There is also a restaurant with a beer garden at the bathing area.

Direction

The towering fortress that now comes into view is Tittmoning Castle. The last stretch of the path into the town leads steeply downhill.

Tittmoning Castle

On a geographically favourable hill, directly on the Ponlachgraben, the medieval castle towers above the town. Its strategic location on the spur and a deep moat made it difficult to conquer. The castle once served as the summer residence of the Salzburg bishops. During its 800-year history, it changed hands several times. In 1816, Tittmoning and its fortress finally fell to Bavaria. Today the castle houses a local history museum and a tannery exhibition.

Direction

On the way back to Burghausen, the route now goes directly along the Salzach. You will pass through a romantic river landscape with lots of greenery and beautiful photo opportunities.
There are hardly any gradients or ascents. Only shortly before the hill in Raitenhaslach do you have to pedal harder again. The impressive monastery complex lies in a loop of the Salzach and can be seen from far away.

Raitenhaslach Monastery

The former monastery is considered a Baroque jewel at the gates of Burghausen. In 1146, Cistercian monks founded their first monastery in Old Bavaria here. Today, the buildings are largely used and administered by the TU Munich. A visit to the monastery church, which is over 800 years old and combines various architectural styles, is highly recommended: the original Romanesque church was rebuilt several times and the interiors are exceptionally splendidly furnished in the Rococo style.
