Reichersberg – Suben (14 km)
From Reichersberg the route goes between the fields towards Minaberg. On the high bank, the view of the Inn, which flows leisurely, and a rest area offer the appropriate setting for a little leisure. The small road that meets the cycle path from the right at the level of Viehhausen marks the way to the Bründl chapel. The chapel can be reached on foot via a staircase that leads down to the Inn.
After 2 km, the cycle path shares the bridge over the Antiesen with the main road, but then it goes along the Inn again. You cross the Holzleitenbach on a wooden bridge and shortly afterwards you reach the inn "To 1000-year-old lime tree". The path then leads under the motorway to Suben. Suben has a beautifully preserved, renovated baroque parish church in the former Augustinian monastery (used as a prison for 200 years).
Suben – St. Florian (5 km)
Follow the road past the prison. At the edge of town, a cycle path begins on the left-hand side of the road, which turns into a side road in the Schnelldorf area. Immediately after the Schnelldorf inn, the route turns left around a hedge. Schärding can already be seen from the paved bike path. You reach the village of Badhöring and drive between the houses onto the main road. Just before you keep to the left and drive parallel to the main road past the substation. Unfortunately, cycling is not allowed on the Inn promenade, so follow the cycle path along the hedge to the church of St. Florian: The two-aisled church was first mentioned in 788, the interior design is partly baroque, partly rococo, the tower is Gothic.
St. Florian – Schärding (3 km)
After the church, follow the pedestrian and cycle path to the end of St. Florian. You cross the main street and drive through the Grüntal, further through the Eichbüchl and Kurhausstraße into the Innbruckstraße. Turn left here and you will get directly to the Alte Innbrücke bike and guest service.
TIP: This information point also offers you a bike service station and competent advice for everything to do with your cycling holiday.
Baroque town of Schärding - The enchanting Schärding, Austrias most beautiful baroque town, is located in the middle of Upper Austria's Innviertel, on the lower reaches of the Inn.
Architecturally, the medieval fortified town is shaped by all eras, but the showpiece is the baroque Silberzeile in the city center. An incomparable ensemble of houses is presented here, gable to gable: Narrow facades, often barely a room wide, squeeze between mighty town houses. Rich merchants once lived here with bags full of pieces of silver, which probably gave the Silberzeile its name. The late medieval guild colors of the houses, the magic of the old gates, the quiet corners and mysterious alleys characterize the charming character of the small, historic town to this day.
Baroque town square with silver line, Christopher Fountain, St. George's fountain, Leonhard Kaiser monument, Götzturm, town hall, war memorial, Seilergraben, Kubinsaal, medieval fortifications, Passauer gate, Schloss gate, Linzer Tor, water gate, local history museum, Inn shipping Schaurecker ( Phone +43 7712 7350)
There are opportunities to cross the Inn to cycle the Inn Cycle Path on the Bavarian side in Schärding or Wernstein. A new pedestrian and cyclist bridge to Neuburg am Inn was built here in September 2006. The Inn Cycle Path is also consistently signposted on the Bavarian side.
The course of the route on the left side of the Inn: If you change to the Bavarian side in Schärding on the Old Inn Bridge, you first pass Neuhaus am Inn and the imposing moated castle. After about 3 km you reach Vorbach am Inn. Here it is worth visiting the former monastery church. The Vornbacher Enge, which you pass before you cycle past the foot of Neuburg am Inn Castle, is particularly scenic. The pedestrian and cyclist bridge also spans here over the Inn to Wernstein. A visit to Neuburg Castle is steep, but worth a detour. From the Südzwinger you have a beautiful view of the Inn Valley. The associated "Hoftaverne" with its shady chestnut garden invites you to stop. It continues along the Inn to the Ingling barrage on the outskirts of the city of Passau. The Inn Cycle Path leads to the center of the three-river city.
