Arrival in Fügen
Tour information and bike fitting.
The Zillertal bicycle path is nearby and leads you directly to Mayrhofen with a slight ascent (2%) at the end of the valley. Take the cable car up into the Zillertal glacier world or visit the “Erlebnissennerei Zillertal”, a typical Zillertal alpine dairy. Old connecting roads lead back – and, of course, slightly downhill – to the hotel.
Lakes Tourapprox. 50 km
Quickly you will have reached the Inn cycle path (Innradweg). It will lead you to Kramsach and slightly uphill to Lake Krummsee and Lake Reintalersee (Tyrolean farm museum). Rattenberg, the oldest and smallest town in Austria, invites you to stay a while to admire the magnificent town and to enjoy yourself in one of the many cafés and restaurants.
Today, you will cycle approx. 50km along the Inn cycle path to Innsbruck. We recommend visiting the Swarovski Crystal Worlds in Wattens and the old salt town of Hall in Tirol with its famous Münzturm tower. And of course you should spend some time in Innsbruck with its charming old town (Golden Roof, City Tower, Helbing House, Hofburg, Imperial Church), the Hungerburg panorama terrace and the modern ski jump (with a café in the tower). At the end of your trip, you will take the train back to the Zillertal valley.
Rest day from cycling
Although there are still many more opportunities for cycling, on the fifth day you can take a rest. Enjoy the amenities of your hotel, hike up to an alpine mountain pasture or choose one of the many other possibilities for an excursion in the surrounding area.
After taking a good day’s rest, you will be ready to get back on the Inn cycle path again to cycle westwards. In Schwaz you can visit the silver mine, in Stans you can hike through the Wolfsklamm gorge and on the way back you can make a stop at Tratzberg castle.
It is hard to believe it but today is your last day’s cycling. Today’s route will lead you along the river Inn to Kufstein, the “pearl” on the river Inn. The fort with its Heldenorgel organ and the Planetarium are well-worth a visit. On the way there, we recommend stopping at the Kundler Klamm gorge. Later, the train will take you back to Jenbach, from where you can cycle back to the hotel on the Zillertal cycle path.
Departure or extension
It is time to say goodbye, even if it might be hard for you to leave. However, you are always welcome to come back here for another stay!
The terrain can be characterised as flat to slightly hilly with some short climbs. You will find yourself almost almost always cycling on tarmac roads or on forest tracks that are in good condition.
