Deviation in the area of Oberaudorf (DE)/ Erl (AT)
Due to the closure of the Zollhaus bridge at Erl over the Inn River for renovation reasons, the Mozart Trail will be routed from Nußdorf with the Inn Cycle Path on the deviation route to the Inn Bridge at Oberaudorf. Afterwards, the tour to Niederndorf in Austria will be reconnected to the existing route at the church. Please follow the deviation route.
Currently, the state of Tyrol is in the process of ascertaining whether a fundamental renovation of the existing bridge or a new construction is more expedient. The duration of the closure also depends on this. In the case of a general renovation, this will last until at least the middle of 2022. If the bridge has to be rebuilt, completion can ideally be expected at the end of 2022.
'Tactful' in the saddle
The new video on the Mozart Cycle Path
It is not often that the world produces such a genius that people are still fascinated by him 265 years after his birth and whose musical work still enchants us today. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is one of these exceptions. Even if Salzburg's greatest son was not granted too long a life, it is his melodies that make him immortal to this day.
Take for example, his minuet in G major, which the very young 'Wolfgangerl' composed at the age of 8 and which leads melodically through our new video on the Mozart Cycle Path. In a lively and varied way, it shows some of the highlights of this 450-kilometre route, which leads you in the footsteps of the great composer through SalzburgerLand, Bavaria and Tyrol. You should plan 10 to 14 days if you want to visit all the stations along the way and dive deep into Mozart's homeland.
A tour on the Mozart Cycle Path certainly pays off. The Mozart oak at Seeon Abbey, Wasserburg am Inn, the Inn Bridge Erl, the deep blue Lake Walchsee, Bad Reichenhall and the Mozart City of Salzburg are just some of the places where you can experience unforgettable moments along the way. And speaking of Bad Reichenhall, the Bavarian state bath was not only a popular resting place for Mozart on his travels to Italy, but is also the home of the salon quartet REICH AN HALL, which accompanies our cycling couple in the video. We hope you enjoy watching and cycling yourself!
