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.
An easy mountain bike trail for beginners to the Arzler Alm mountain hut, and a popular enduro tour with a single track option.
Start at the Nordkettenbahn car park and follow the MTB signs to Arzler Alm, first along the tarmaced road, then gravel. The route is moderately steep with short, steeper sections until it reaches the Arzler Alm single trail. From there, the final few metres lead gently downhill to the hut.
Our tip: shortly before reaching the Arzler Alm, you can turn left for the single track. Experienced bikers and many locals use this as a challenging enduro tour. Difficulty level on the single track scale: S2. Alternative route: After 1.5 km, turn off towards the Arzler Schießstand (Arzl shooting range). Shortly before the Arzler Alm mountain hut, join the route towards the Rumer Alm mountain hut. After a further 1.5 km, you'll come to a route that leads off towards Höttinger Bild and Achselwaldweg. Just before the Höttinger Alm mountain hut is the turn-off to the Bodensteinalm mountain hut.
