Tyrol and its diverse bike tours

Discover quite possibly the nicest place in Austria by bike

Did you know that Tyrol has more than 900km of bike paths? The imposing mountains in the West of Austria would make you think otherwise. Between the Zillertal valley and the Kitzbühl Alps and between the northern range and the Karwendel range there are wonderfully flat bike routes. These are perfect for casual cyclists who are just as interested in art and culture as the cycling itself.

Picture book Austria: Cycling in Tyrol

The very traditional Austria unfolds in Tyrol. Amid the snow covered mountain landscape, lush pastures and Lederhosen you will feel welcome straight away. The openness of the Tiroleans is incredible! Every stranger gets greeted and looked after. Tyrol’s level of hospitality cannot be beaten anywhere else in Austria. In the small, tranquil places such as Mayrhofen or Kramsach you will feel the warmth just as much in Innsbruck. Innsbruck is, by the way, a highlight on all of the bike tours going through Tyrol.

The Tiroleans know what they are doing with food. Whether its Tyrolean Speck (bacon) or spicy mountain cheese – you just need to follow your nose to find the region’s best tasting specialities! Maybe you will even get to find out how great a portion of Daumnidei tastes!
