New concept in cycling

A completely new era in cycling heralds the first staging of the Salzburg City Hill Climbs in autumn. Because with the innovative format, the Hohensalzburg Fortress becomes the scene of what is probably the most spectacular cycling race in Austria. The route from Kapitelplatz up to Fortress Hohensalzburg is 900 meters long and there is an average of 15% to a maximum of 32% gradient on 120 meters of altitude that the participants have to complete. The route up to the Hohensalzburg Fortress has the perfect characteristics for the new format in cycling, the “City Hill Climb”.
