MOUNTAIN BIKING IN THE PONGAU
The area around St. Veit im Pongau has made a name for itself as a mountain biking region. Numerous mountain bike routes await you and your individual standards. Scale the Hochkönig mountain scenery and enjoy the fresh mountain air in St. Veit on your bike. The region regularly hosts exciting mountain bike events, such as the Aufi & Owi MTB race in nearby St. Johann in August or the MTB Hochsteintrophy, which this year takes place in June in St. Veit. Embark on this short route as a hobby rider on the Marktplatz in St. Veit. The long route, however, starts in Schwarzach. You can find more information (German only) about this top-notch mountain bike event in St. Veit at www.rlc-stveit.com.
ROAD BIKING IN THE PROVINCE OF SALZBURG
Those travelling by road bike get to experience a diversity of cycling tours throughout the region. Choose from over 70 road bike tours according to individual skill level and taste. Some routes run straight through St. Veit allowing you to start directly from your Hotel Metzgerwirt. One such tour leads you to the foot of the Hochkönig, from where you have a breathtaking view of Mandlwände.
FAMILY TOURS IN THE REGION
Many relaxing and scenically inviting cycling trails await families with children in the surrounding area. The e-bike with a small electric motor also helps adults to conquer more difficult sections and brings you one step closer to the Hochkönig. Rent bicycles, mountain bikes and e-bikes at Intersport Pointner in Schwarzach, only 3-km-away. There’s also a charging station for e-bikes directly in the hotel.
TAUERN CYCLE PATH AND ALPE ADRIA CYCLING TRAIL
If you’re planing a cycling trip, the Metzgerwirt in St. Veit is the right address. For example, the Tauern Cycle Path, a border-crossing bike trail that runs from Krimml in the province of Salzburg to the three-river town Passau in Bavaria, runs at the left shore of the Salzach river, starting in Schwarzach. Furthermore, the Alpe Adria Cycling Trial, which leads from the Mozart city of Salzburg to Grado in Italy over around eight stages in approx. a week, runs along the Salzach in St. Veit. You’re only 2.5 km away from the Metzgerwirt. A brief detour allows you to enjoy all amenities the Metzgerwirt has in store for you.

Delicious local cuisine and other delicacies await you after your tour.

SPA AND RECREATION IN ST. VEIT
Our high-quality furnished spa area with Finnish sauna, infrared cabin and spacious relaxation room promises optimum recreation. A pleasant massage will loosen your back and the leg muscles, and let you get back on the bike the next day for more cycling and mountain biking in Ponga
If there’s still some time left in the evening, we recommend a walk through lovely St. Veit without either the mountain bike or the bicycle. Or how about a trip to the nearby Goldeggersee, reachable via the Urpass in comfortable 30 cycling minutes from the hotel? The popular Moorsee can reach a water temperature of up to 27 °C. The healing powers of the water and the romantic surroundings ensure optimal relaxation and a feeling of wellness in the midst of nature. Enjoy the last sunrays of the day at the lake after a bath and kick back.
The idyllic Böndlsee is only 30 cycling minutes away from the hotel or 4 km from the Goldeggersee. A relaxing cycling tour form one lake to another is recommended on very hot days.
Such a lake tour and a brief visit in the evening should pay off. Our guests can go swimming free of charge in Goldeggersee and Böndlsee, and in the public pools in Schwarzach and St. Veit.
