10.6 KM 10.6 KM
1300 M 1.300 M
hard hard
A challenging tour from Zirl to the Neue Magdeburger mountain hut and a good starting point for the climb up Solstein. The climb starts at the underpass at the northern end of town and follows the road towards Hochzirl. Shortly after the third sharp bend, the route turns right onto a curvy track that leads steadily uphill through the Fließerwald forest. After about four kilometres, the route takes another right onto mountain bike route no. 543, which leads to the Neue Magdeburger mountain hut where you can enjoy fantastic views of the Tux and Stubai Alps! By taking mountain bike route 543, it is possible to connect to a route that leads back to Zirl via the other side of the Brunn Valley.

This wonderful circular tour connects the Mutterer Alm, the Raitiser Alm (not open to the public) and the Kreither Alm mountain huts. From the Kreither Alm, the route leads down into the valley towards Stockerhof. Just before you reach the Stockerhof, the route turns right and continues past the Telfer Wiesen meadows, Kreith and Raitis to Mutters. Although technically easy and on wide forestry roads, the steady incline towards the Mutterer Alm hut requires plenty of stamina. The serviced mountain huts serve excellent cuisine and regional delicacies with wonderful views of the Wipp and Stubai valleys and Patscherkofel mountain. Our tips: The tour is more family-friendly if you take the Muttereralmbahn gondola up the mountain to avoid the initial ascent. If you do the tour in the other direction, you can take the single track down from the Mutterer Alm mountain hut to Mutters – assuming you have a suitable level of biking ability.

Seegrube - Arzler Alm trail (no. 506 + 5007)

21 KM 21 KM
1300 M 1.300 M

The classic local tour for Innsbruck's bikers - challenging, and with an optional single trail descent on the Arzler Alm Trail. The tour leads from Innsbruck up along route 506, initially at a moderate incline followed by a steep climb up to the edge of the forest at the end. From there, the route continues past the Bodensteinalm mountain hut, where bikers can stop in for a break and a bite to eat, and then leads steeply uphill to the Seegrube mountain lift station with its wonderful views of the Zillertal and Stubai Alps. The descent initially follows the same route but then takes a left turn at the Rastboden junction onto the Lackenweg trail towards the Arzler Alm mountain hut. Roughly 300 m east of the Arzler Alm, at the crossing with the forestry road, you come to the start of the Arzler Alm Trail, the downhill highlight of this tour (difficulty level S2, for advanced bikers). The first section to the avalanche barrier is playful and flowy, featuring berms and jumps (including "chicken runs" for beginners). The second section leads from the avalanche barrier down into the city. Long banked curves, tight turns, blind crests, jumps, waves, narrow gullies and rocky areas provide plenty of flowing fun. After covering almost 400 vertical metres and a distance of three kilometres, the trail joins the new Hungerburg - Mühlau mountain bike route. Beginners can avoid the trail by following the forest road or take one of the numerous linking tracks along the way. To the Bike City Card brochure

Follow this forest trail, cross the main road no. 189 and turn onto the wide forestry road towards Arzkasten. After the Arzkasten guesthouse, keep left towards Weisland/Holzleiten, continue past a small chapel and then turn right onto the paved road that leads through the stream valley towards Aschland. From there, the route is steep and curvy towards Nassereith. Shortly before reaching Nasserreith, turn left at the junction, go over a wooden bridge, join the old main road (the Roman "Via Decia") and follow it as it zigzags uphill to Holzleiten. From there, turn left and follow the route back via Weisland and Arzkasten to the car park in Grünberg.
