I am the manager of Zugspitz Arena Bike Guiding and responsible for everything related to mountain biking at the hotel. You will find me on my mountain bike around 200 days a year. My bike guides and I know the surrounding area like the back of our hand. Discover the beautiful routes of the Tyrolean Zugspitz Arena together with us or by using the hotel-own GPS devices.
I have been a mountain biker for over 30 years now. What was meant to be as sport to compensate for my stressful job as tennis coach became – as would be expected - quickly a great passion. Today, mountain biking is a firm part of my life.
Mountain and nature experience was clearly my priority at the beginning. Thanks to my sporty ambition, I quickly started to seek and find challenges whether uphill or downhill. The constant advancement of the material offered more and more interesting possibilities. Mountain tours, which I accomplished on foot in the past, were now taken by bike, and I became the region’s first single trail biker. I have explored every corner of our region with passion, and can say that I really know every stone and root of our region. Due to my extensive experience, I also participated greatly in the development of Tyrolean Zugspitz Arena bike infrastructure.
My favourite place is the wayside shrine at the Grubigstein upper terminus. An amazing mountain panorama as well as the start of the freeride route await you here.
