On Two Wheels To Recharge Batteries

With 340km of signposted trails, Austria’s Hochkönig region in Salzburgerland is associated with hiking. Not surprising, really, as the names translates as ‘high-king’. But it looks set to be linked as much to cycling in the future.

In particular, to e-mountain biking as it’s the first region to set up a complete network of charging points both in the valley and up in the mountains. The dedicated ‘ii Tour’ for e-bikes is a 113km panoramic trail, leading through Maria Alm, Dienten and Mühlbach, visiting mountain huts and viewpoints along the way and with convenient re-charging stations.

It also claims to be the world’s first ‘certified vegan’ region supported by the many vegan partner farms, alpine huts, restaurants, cafes, bakeries, and accommodation providers.

Families have always enjoyed the region’s attractions, including a 1.6km summer toboggan run, Europe’s first forest slide park, stroller-accessible mountain routes, and the ‘mountain village of animals’ in Mühlbach.
