Hop on a bike in Zillertal and you’re sure to be in for a real treat! After all, the region is a cycling paradise: whether with the family, on a leisurely ride or looking for an adrenalin rush, there is something to please everyone.
Whizzing through breathtaking scenery with the wind in your hair and feeling your own body intensely – cycling adventurers know this feeling of happiness all too well. And Zillertal has so much more to o!er: The choice of routes is great, the possibilities and services fulfill everything a biker’s heart desires.
The Zillertal cycle route stretches from Strass to Mayrhofen and can also be covered at any time with the Zillertal Railway for the way home.
The single trails in Zell and Gerlos offer the very best of fun for adventure-hungry bikers. The trails are suitable for beginners, but also present an exciting challenge for experienced bikers. Numerous serpentines, North Shore elements and pump tracks demand a certain degree of skill.
Anyone who takes on the challenge of the Zillertaler Höhenstraße high road on a racing bike at the entrance of Zillertal realizes: The breathtaking panorama makes each push of the pedals worthwhile.
Start at an altitude of 1,300 m in Tux-Lanersbach. The route first follows the forest road, but soon crosses an old bridle path which you must follow until the view clears and the Junsberg, Madseitberg and Grübelspitze peaks become visible on the other side of the valley. After reaching the Höllensteinhütte, go on towards Grieralm and then take the forest road back to Juns, or on to Tux-Lanersbach.
First destination: Wedelhütte. Here you can park your bike and start the ascent to the summit of the Wimbachkopf on foot.
From Alpengasthof Finkau, you cross the beautiful Wildgerlostal valley by bike to the large waterfall at the end of the valley. From there, the steep ascent to the Zittauer Hütte begins.
From Mayrhofen, take the bike in the direction of Stilluptal to the valley station of the Kasseler Hütte material cable car. From there you walk to the Kasseler Hütte.
Ride your bike up to the Junsbergalm/Stoankasern. After the snack station, park your bike in the bike parking area to climb the Junssee. The bike parking area below the Junsjoch requires more metres in altitude.
When mountain biking in the Zillertal valley you do not have to just rely on your muscle power. Seven cable cars also transport bikes up to lofty heights and take you effortlessly to the most beautiful starting points for magnificent panorama tours. With most bottom stations there are not even any stairs so bikers can ride over convenient access ramps.
