Mountain bike tours

TOURS, TRAILS & CHEESE DUMPLINGS

That is mountain biking in Innsbruck. First you pedal hard uphill. Then you enjoy a summer bike stop at one of the many mountain huts and alpine restaurants that are often located right on the route or may even be your destination. Refuelling à la Innsbruck: Kaspressknödel cheese dumplings. Are your calves burning? If so, simply relax and enjoy the views of the surrounding mountains a little longer before getting back on the saddle.

hard hard
10.6 KM 10.6 KM
1300 M 1.300 M
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.

Mutters 3-hut circuit

medium medium
21 KM 21 KM
1000 M 1.000 M
This wonderful tour connects the Mutterer, Raitiser (unserviced) and Kreither alpine huts. From the latter, the route heads into the valley towards Stockerhof where, just before you reach it, the route turns right and goes acros Telfer Wiesen, Kreith and Raitis towards Mutters. Although technically easy along wide forestry roads, the steady incline towards the Mutterer hut requires plenty of stamina. The serviced alpine huts score with their excellent cuisine and regional delicacies, and wonderful views of the Wipp and Stubai valleys and the Patscherkofel. Tips - the tour is more suitable for families when the Muttereralm cable car is used for the ascent. For those who wish to start the tour from the other direction, descent is possible from Mutterer Alm along the single trail towards Mutters - assuming suitable cycling know-how.

Seegrube - Arzler Alm Trail (Nr. 506+5007)

medium medium
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 along Route 506 with a light ascent, and a steep climb at the end towards the forest's edge. Past the Bodensteinalm (rest stop) steeply upwards to the Seegrube mountain station with its wonderful views of Zillertal and the Stubai Alps. The descent is first back along the way up, but with a left turn at the Rastboden junction on to Lackenweg towards Arzler Alm. Roughly 300m east of the alpine hut, at the forestry road junction, you'll find the start of the Arzler Alm Trail, the downhill highlight of this tour (difficulty level S2, for advanced bikers). The first section up to the avalanche wall is sportily laid out with some steep turns and jumps (including 'chicken ways' for beginners). The second section takes you from the avalanche wall directly into the city. Long, drawn-out, steep turns, tight curves, blind summits, jumps, waves, tight ravines and rock formations ensure continuous riding fun. After descending almost 400m in altitude and over 3km of trail, the track joins the new Hungerburg-Mühlau mountain-bike route. Beginners can then switch to the forestry road or one of the numerous tracks along the way. To the Bike City Card Folder
