Cycling & Mountainbiking
Standing in majestic ranks before the eyes of cyclists are the world-famous Tyrolean mountains. The Zillertal Alps, Karwendelgebirge, Kitzbühel Alps and the Nordkette form a very impressive backdrop. And despite peaks which tower as high as 3500 meters, most of the time you will find yourself cycling along generally flat paths through the valleys of Tyrol.
Zillertal and Inntal valleys offer outstanding bike paths for enjoyable cycling experiences. Collect unforgettable impressions of Tyrol and the land between Innsbruck and Kufstein. Friendly people, beautifully kept villages, extending just like a string of pearls along the banks of the Inn. And naturally, countless points of interest along the way: the Olympic City of Innsbruck, the Crystal Worlds in Wattens, Austria's smallest town, Rattenberg, the silver mine in Schwaz, and a wealth of castles and palaces as well.
