Cycling and e-biking
If you are looking for something a little less strenuous but enjoy exploring your holiday region on two wheels, the Hotel Seewinkel has city bikes and e-bikes for hotel guests to rent. The Lake Fuschl Region offers a wide variety of biking trails which we can particularly recommend in autumn. As the colours of the forests begin to change and Salzburg Country prepares itself for the harvest, this is probably the best time of year to cycle from one village to the next, soaking up the landscape and the atmosphere. This time is known as “Bauernherbst” in Salzburg - Farmers’ Autumn Festival - when village festivals are held to celebrate a successful harvest with local music and culinary delicacies. Fuschl am See is surrounded by breath-taking landscapes and a wealth of local culture. Discover the more gentle form of exploration on two wheels.
Bicycle garage, bike hire and cycle service at the Hotel Seewinkel
As of 2014 there will be a lockable bicycle garage at the Hotel Seewinkel. So, if you are thinking of bringing your own mountain or racing bike with you, then you can be sure that it is in safe hands. If your bike needs a service or repairs while you are on holiday, that’s no problem either; there is a cycle repair workshop and store just 10 minutes’ walk from the hotel.
Also new in 2014, the Hotel Seewinkel will have city and electric bicycles in addition to its modern mountain-bikes available for hire.
Fuschl am See is the ideal destination for cycling enthusiasts.
What makes the Hotel Seewinkel so special is the combination of cycling in Salzburg County and the fantastic leisure and relaxation facilities on the hotel’s private beach and in the new lake-side lounge.
