Mountain biking in the Zillertal Arena
Around 325 kilometres of biking tracks lead from the Tyrolean Zillertal Valley into the Salzburg Pinzgau District. Various levels of difficulty offer an ideal route for every type of biker. On the Tauern Cycling Route, forest paths and single trails is the fun factor just as much guaranteed as on sweat-inducing bike tours with amazing nature experiences.

New in the region:

  • 4 new single trails in Gerlos (levels of difficulty blue and red)
  • Movelo hire and charging stations

This unique bike region, awarded with the Approved Quality seal, stretches across the two federal states of Tyrol and Salzburg and isn’t short of diverse tours and first-class panoramas. The cocktail of tours, from valley round trip to uphill routes in dizzy heights, surely offers every biker something that suits his or her performance aspiration. From simple gravel paths to technically challenging single trails, from the variety of alpine huts for stops to the possibility to take the bike uphill by mountain railway and bus - – the Zillertal Arena offers everything what bikers need.
The leisure tour into the Schönachtal Valley delights families and beginners, provides a good overview of the region and is a real scenic highlight. Anyone who prefers the more difficult routes with some sound metres in altitude and the odd sweat attack will get everything they wish for on tours into the Krumbachtal Valley, to the Isskogel or to the Hirschbichlalm.
