Bike tours in the Zillertal Arena

The long network of bike trails through the Zillertal Arena is well developed and offers something to suit everyone – from leisurely valley trails to exciting forest bike trails and single trails with fun factor. E-biking has become increasingly popular in recent years and there is a reason for that: exercise and enjoyment are not a contradiction in terms but go hand in hand with this form of transport.

Altitude Profile

Description

An easy family-friendly route without any steep gradients worth mentioning. Start from Strass on the left bank of the Ziller and continue to Schlitters and along the wide valley floor through Fügen and Uderns to Kaltenbach. After passing under the Zillertal-Bundesstrasse, the well-marked route generally follows the Zillertalbahn railway line. The train company Zillertalbahn offers a bike transport. Bike rental is possible in the bigger train stations as well as in several privat bike rentals in the valley.

Levels of difficulty & rules of conduct

BLUE ROUTE: easy
Family-friendly cycling routes with just slight inclines and no continuous climbs. There is very little traffic on the routes and hazardous spots are clearly pointed out.

RED ROUTE: moderately difficult
Requires sporty riding skills, mountain bike equipment is recommended. Unclear, winding sections, short uphill and downhill sections with gradients up to max. 17%. Motor vehicle traffic must be expected, which may take up the entire width of the road, as well as obstacles such as barriers and ruts. Sections may be closed, for example, for logging work.

BLACK ROUTE: difficult
Demanding MTB route with numerous hazardous moments. The red route’s maximum gradient is exceeded and the route characteristics are even more difficult. MTB equipment is mandatory, the route requires riding with foresight to adapt to the situation.

 

Rules for unadulterated biking enjoyment

  • Always ride at a controlled speed, keeping the route ahead in sight!
  • Be considerate of hikers and pedestrians and only overtake at walking pace!
  • Note the route’s level of difficulty and accurately assess your own experience and ability as a biker!
  • Do not ride your bike without a helmet! Check your equipment before every bike tour!
  • Barriers are to be respected. Don’t forget, the roads are mainly for agricultural and forestry use. Close the pasture gates!
