Discover an Austrian alp by bike
Discover an Austrian alp by mountainbike
First a little insiders' tip: from the middle of May on the "Hochalm" (high alp), situated over lake Mondsee, the lupins are in flowers. Well, normally this plants to not belong to a typical Austrian alp but anyway they are beautiful to watch.
For mountaibikers the Hochalm is easy reachable. Once the monks of the ancient monastery of Mondsee grew cattle at this alp and made delicious cheese from the milk. Today there is no farming at the Hochalm but this allows to enjoy the view and the silence even more.
For all bikers eager to share their way with others we recommend the "Eisenau". This gravel road is suitable for beginners as well as pros and there is always a lot of traffic. But who wonders - at the alp there is an alpine hut with catering service. It's a must to have a cold drink and an Austrian snack after the climb.
