Fräulein Maria´s Bicycle Tours

The hills are alive with the sound of cyclists

Rupert Riedl was born and grew up in Salzburg. As is true of most Austrians he had never heard about the Sound of Music, until he was lucky enough to work in a youth hostel where he caught the Sound of Music fever.

While working at the hostel I booked and recommended a lot of bus tours for people with the tour companies in Salzburg, but I saw that some people weren’t totally satisfied with this impersonal and commercial way of seeing the city.

In time for the next summer, full of ideas and ambition and after cycling every single road and bike path to find the best route for you, I left my job at the Youth Hostel and my Scottish wife and I started Frulein Maria’s Bicycle Tours. We had found a way to bring our guests close enough to touch all the sights... even in Salzburgs old town where cars, let alone buses aren’t allowed. We started with just ten bikes, but we soon had to buy more!

Since starting in 1999 they have had the chance to show thousands of tourists this beautiful city and sing along with them in the footsteps of Frulein Maria.
