Mountainbiking in the Pitztal Valley
Pedal power in the Austrian Alps
Mountainbiking is a great way to enjoy the beauty of the mountains using nothing more than pedal power. Swap the sweaty gym for lush meadows, thick forests and craggy peaks – nature's own playground. The climbs are tough but the descents over roots and rocks are all the more thrilling for it. For those who appreciate an extra battery boost, the region's trails are also suitable for e-bikes. These mountain bikes with a built-in motor make it possible for riders of all ages and fitness levels to access the high mountains. Discover the Pitztal Valley on two wheels and enjoy the feeling of total freedom.
Riders who like to take things easy can ride the same route, but in the opposite direction. From Mittelberg, most of the route is downhill as it passes through the pretty villages of St. Leonhard, Jerzens and Arzl to the finish line in Imst.
