Mountain bike tours for e-bikes
Up the mountains by bike: What used to be reserved for mountain bikers with legs of steel is now within reach for everyone. E-mountain bikes make it feasible to access numerous destinations that previously required a very high level of fitness. This means you can enjoy a ride to the most beautiful mountain huts and picture-perfect views. The ride is still not completely effortless. But it is only moderately strenuous compared to riding uphill using pure muscle power. The battery support opens up brand new biking territory: the mountains around Innsbruck where you will find delicious alpine delicacies and alpine views: lush green alpine meadows, dark green forests, chirping birds and the freshest air in the region.
An intermediate eMTB tour to the Rauschbrunnen alpine guesthouse, one of the most rustic of the traditional mountain huts in and around Innsbruck.
The tour starts at the Ottoburg restaurant in Innsbruck's historic old town, leads up Höttinger Gasse road and along Schneeburggasse road to the Sadrach district. From there, the tour continues up along paved roads to the Planötzenhof restaurant and then continues past the restaurant to join a forest road up to the Höttinger Bild, a small mountain chapel in the woods. The route then zigzags uphill for a few bends before flattening out towards the Rauschbrunnen alpine guesthouse, which is perched up on the Nordkette mountain range above the Hötting district at an altitude of 1,060 metres above sea level. You can even see as far as the Wipp Valley and admire the impressive mountains of Patscherkofel, Serles and the Kalkkögel range. The alpine guesthouse serves refreshing drinks, traditional snacks and typical Tyrolean alpine dishes. Follow the same route back except for the section on Höttinger Gasse road, as this is a one-way street.
The many different views of Innsbruck as you enjoy the varied ride up Innsbruck's Nordkette mountain range, the southern gateway to the Karwendel mountains. Nice in autumn, as it leads partially through a beech forest. The lovely sun terrace at the Rauschbrunnen alpine guesthouse.
