Stoneman Taurista

The bike experience in the Salzburger Sportwelt

Over 4,700 metres of ascent and 147 kilometres to challenge your muscles. The Stoneman Taurista will take you to breath-taking panoramic scenery: green Alpine pastures, rustic mountain huts and the highest summit crosses of the Salzburger Sportwelt.

Season 2024: June 6th to September 29th

The rout - 1, 2 or 3 days

Designed for three stages, the Austrian Stoneman starts off from Altenmarkt taking over the Sattelbauer and the Penkkopf. Then the 1,768 metre high Rossbrand is waiting for you. With an amazing panoramic view over 150 important Alpine peaks, such as the Dachstein, Bischofsmütze and the Hohe Tauern with the Großglockner is the reward. Heading south the Stoneman Taurista passes the idyllic Alm the Oberhütte. Taking you over the Emperor’s Pass, at 2,110 metres to cross the Tauern, the route then takes you past the Johannes waterfall and the picturesque Gnaden huts back to Altenmarkt-Zauchensee.

Most riders are so thrilled after their ride - they take the handcrafted Stoneman trophy home. It is designed by Stoneman founder Roland Stauder himself and carries a stone of the regional bedrock in its centre.

The Trophy – made of the striking wooden pedestal, the iron, laser-cut Stoneman figurine and a stone, struck off the bedrock of the Tauern – is just 40 € .

You already earned the trophy with your first Stoneman? Collect the Taurista-Stone for just 20 €.

Because every now and then someone asks: If you complete the tour in one day, one half of the stone is hand-painted golden. For two days it is painted silver, for three days bronze. If you are riding an e-mtb, you receive a natural-coloured stone at the finish.

Starter packs are available at the official issuing offices and at all Stoneman Taurista logis partners for house guests.

You may fetch your starter pack on the evening prior of your ride from 4:30 pm onwards.
