Accessibility / arrival

Whether for arriving or departing or even for transfers along the route of the biking tour, trains are an irreplaceable partner when it comes to biking. With the right information for planning purposes, your next biking tour is quickly brought on track.

You can arrive by taking the train to Steyr. The Steyrtal Bike Path is a good option for getting to the starting point of the Alpine Foothills Path in Aschach an der Steyr. A further option for ambitious bikers is to bike from the railway station in Garsten via Saass to Aschach an der Steyr.

You can travel back by train from the finishing point at Wels' Main Train Station. After crossing the Traun on the Trodatbrücke, a bridge that was specially constructed for bikers and pedestrians, you bike through the historical centre of the trade fair city to the new hub for local travel.
