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.

One of the autumn classics! But be warned: be sure to take enough to drink even in autumn because the southern slopes of the Zirler get very hot in the sun.

The ride from Zirl up to the Kalvarienberg-Sattel col is a challenging section. From the Zirler Mähder pastures, it gets cooler and then the road climbs further uphill and into the Brunn Valley. From there, the ride gets a little easier as it crosses the Pfaffersmahd pastures and then continues through the beautiful larch meadows to the Magdeburger Hütte mountain hut. At the hut, you can enjoy a well-earned break and bite to eat with stunning views of the Tux and Stubai Alps.


Highlights:

The beautiful Zirler Mähder pastures. The stunning landscapes of the Karwendel Nature Park. The delicious traditional food and home-made alpine farm products such as Graukäse (Tyrolean grey cheese) and Speck (dry-cured ham).


Our tip:

There are also high alpine hikes in the area –  only for experienced mountaineers.

After some unstable and thundery days, high pressure will return on Thursday, but probably not before midday. The morning will be cloudy with still a few showers continuing, but the sun will break through quickly and it should be strong enough to ensure temperatures rise to pleasing values.

Tendency

On Friday we can look forward to perfect weather: it will be sunny and dry with temperatures still rising. The next thunderstorms will not occur before Saturday.
