Interactive elevation profile
Baroque city of Schärding In the middle of the Upper Austrian Innviertel, on the Lower Inn, lies the magical city of Schärding, Austria’s most beautiful Baroque city.
The mediaeval defensive city has been influenced architecturally by every era, but the gem is the Baroque Silver Mile in the city centre. With one gable next to another, you will see an unforgettable ensemble of buildings: Narrow façades, often no wider than a room, are nestled between impressive patricians’ houses. These were normally the residences of rich merchants, with pockets full of silver pieces, which probably gave the Silver Mile its name. The mediaeval craft colours of the buildings, the magic of the old gates, the quiet corners and mysterious lanes still influence the charming character of this small, historical city. Reichersberg - Suben (14 km) From Reichersberg, the route, which is lined with trees, leads through fields to Minaberg. The high bank offers a view of the Inn, which leisurely flows along, as well as a rest area. The small road which meets to bike path at Viehhausen from the right, marks the way to the Bründl Chapel. You can reach the chapel via stairs that lead down to the Inn. After 2 kilometres, the bike path shares the bridge over the Antiesen with the federal road, but it then follows the Inn again. You cross the Hozleitenbach on a wooden bridge and then reach the “Zur tausendjährigen Linde” Inn. The path then leads under the motorway to Suben. Suben: Beautifully preserved, renovated Baroque parish church in the former Augustine Cannon Monastery (used for 200 years as a prison). Suben - St Florian (5 km) You follow the road past the prison. At the city limits, a bike path begins on the left edge of the road, which turns into a side lane near Schnelldorf. Right after the former Schnelldorf Inn, the route takes a left behind a hedge. From the paved bike path, you can already see Schärding. You reach the village of Badhöring and ride between the buildings towards the federal road. Right before reaching it, you take a left and ride next to the main road past the substation. It is unfortunately prohibited to ride along the Inn Promenade, so you follow the bike path along the hedge towards the church of St Florian. St Florian: The two-nave church was first mentioned in 788. The interior is partly Baroque, partly Rococo. The tower is Gothic. St Florian - Schärding (3 km) After the church, you ride on the pavement and bike path to the city limits of St Florian. You cross the main street and ride through the Grüntal, then further through the Eichbüchl and on the Kurhausstrasse to the Innbruckstrasse. You take a left here and run smack into the Rad- & Gästeservice Alte Innbrück (Bike & Guest Service). TIP: At this information point, you also have a bike service station and competent consultation regarding your biking holiday.
