St. Moritz - Innsbruck

The breath-taking Cycle Path on River Inn.

Note: Due to the current situation, this tour cannot be booked for 2021.

Unspoiled nature, and in such an impressive and diverse way you can hardly get enough of the mountain panoramas on this 7-day tour from Switzerland to Austria. Soak up the peace and quiet of this unique area, it will be good for you!

Details about the St. Moritz – Innsbruck cycling tour

Do not leave the starting point of St. Moritz before you have done some ‘people watching’, because this is where the upper class meets for winter sports etc. On the way you will find there is an enormous number of picturesque villages that shape the Engadine and its culture. Zernez is the gateway to the Swiss National Park, where, with a bit of luck, you can spot deer, chamois and marmots.

On the 4th day of the tour your reach the Austrian border and continue the tour in Tyrol. Past Stuben and Landeck, Imst awaits with numerous fountains, churches and chapels. After all this you can enjoy Innsbruck’s hospitality, where Kasspressknödel (cheese dumplings), Tyrolean Gröstel and other delights are available for refreshment.

Highlights of the St. Moritz - Innsbruck cycling tour

  • The glamourous St. Moritz: Aristocrats, entrepreneurs and stars – they all come to St. Moritz to work or strap on skis for winter sports fun. Walk in the footsteps of ‘high society’ and explore the elegant boutiques and chic restaurants.
  • Magnificent mountain panoramas in the Swiss Engadine: It is one of the highest inhabited valleys in all of Europe. So it’s no wonder that you can enjoy very special views in the high mountain landscape.
  • The artist village of Guarda offers many artistically painted houses and is a real feast for the eyes. By the way, the type of decoration in this village is calls sgraffiti, which is a special scratching technique. One of the most famous children’s books in Switzerland has its origin here: A Bell for Ursli.
  • The Golden Roof in Innsbruck: It is the symbol of the Tyrolean capital and is worth a visit. Also because of the adjoining lively old town centre, which invites you to take a stroll. Incidentally, the Golden Roof itself consists of 2,657 fire-gilded copper shingles.

Useful information about the 7-day St. Moritz - Innsbruck cycling tour

On the slightly hilly tour you must accept an ascent or two, but there are also some descents to take it easier. The network of paths is characterised by easily navigable gravel roads and forest paths. The Inn starts at its source quite contemplative, meanders wildly through Switzerland and gradually reaches full width.

Sample hotel: San Gian

Today you will cycle via Samedan (Old Tower), La Punt (San Andrea Early Gothic church with frescos) and Zuoz (window paintings in the church San Luzi) to Zernez. You will ride your bike through the valley of Upper Engadin. Zernez is the gateway to the national park (national park house).

Sample hotel: Spöl

First, you will cycle to Lavin, which still looks like an old mountain village. The place name of the pretty village Guarda (“Look!“) derives from  the splendid views, which can be enjoyed here. Today’s destination is Scuol, with the adventure water park “Bogn Engiadina” and the castle Tarasp, which is the majestic symbol of Engadin.

Sample hotel: Bellaval

From Scoul you will cycle via Martina until you reach the boarder and from there you will continue via Pfunds and Tösens to Ried/Prutz. Following the river Inn, you will get to the famous gorge Finstermünster Schlucht. The town centres of Stuben and Pfunds in Tyrol are noteworthy.

Sample hotel: Post Prutz

On the sixth day you will ride your bike through the “Oberes Gericht“ from Ried via Prutz down to Landeck (castle with museum, ruin Schrofenstein, Gerberbrücke, showplace of the Tyrolean fights for freedom). Then you will cycle past the monastery Zams and through the protected Mils Au (floodplain) to Imst (city of fountains, numerous churches and chapels). The gorge Rosengartenschlucht is worth a visit.

Sample hotel: Hirschen

Small villages are located on the Inn cycle path. The cultural highlight of today’s route is the Cistercian monastery of Stams (collegiate church with rose grids). Numerous churches and ruins are located above the Inn valley. Cycling along the Martinswand (mountain face) you will get to Innsbruck with its well-kept old town (Golden Roof, City Tower, Imperial Palace, Hofgarten Park, Heblinghaus).

Eine wunderschöne und nicht allzu schwere Tour
Die Radtour entlang des Inns hat unsere Erwartungen hinsichtlich der Landschaft, der Beschaffenheit der Radwege, der Unterbringung und der Verpflegung (wir hatten Halbpension gebucht) voll und ganz erfüllt. Insbeondere das Engadin - beginnend am Malojapass (Übergang nach Italien) und endend bei Martina (Grenzübergang zu Oesterreich) bietet eine traumhaft schöne Landschaft. Die Radwege ließen sich meist sehr gut bis gut befahren. Längere Abschnitte sind auch mal unbefestigt, und es geht dabei mitunter auch kräftig hoch und runter, aber wir sind mit unseren (eigenen) Trekkingrädern gut zurecht gekommen. Das Damenrad hatte Elektrounterstützung und war deshalb häufig klar im Vorteil. Überhaupt war zu beobachten, dass die meisten Radler mit e-Bikes unterwegs waren; das betraf sowohl Tourenräder als auch Mountainbikes.

Vielen Dank für Ihre Bewertung! Ja, auch wir sehen den Trend, dass immer mehr Gäste zum Ebike greifen. Eine tolle Erfindung - denn so können auch weniger geübte Radfahrer Strecken erklimmen, die sie sonst vielleicht nicht oder nur sehr schwer meistern würden. Schön, dass Sie mit unserer Tour so zufrieden waren!

Vor dem atemberaubenden Ausblick muss man gute Kondition beweisen
Im Schweizer Teil hat die Tour auf jeden Fall einen Streckencharakter Stufe 3 verdient, dafür ist die Aussicht natürlich gigantisch. Der Grenzübertritt erfordert eine ca. 5 km lange Fahrt auf einer stark befahrenen Straße, zwei kurze Stücke führen dabei durch Tunnel, was wir als sehr unangenehm empfunden haben. Auf österreichischer Seite geht es gemütlicher zu. Auf das letzte Teilstück von Imst nach Innsbruck kann man verzichten, da der Weg von mindestens 65 km eher eintönig ist und nahezu immer neben der Autobahn verläuft. Die Hotelauswahl war super, auch der Gepäcktransport klappte perfekt. Am meisten gefielen und das Hotel San Gian in St. Moritz sowie das Hotel zum Hirschen in Imst. Letzteres verfügte über einen fantastischen Wellnessbereich.

Overall this is a wonderful tour. The accommodations were excellent. We traveled in early June which is low season and we often got upgraded to larger rooms and room's with views. There were not many cyclists on the roads and we had fabulous weather. This tour is rate 2 out of 5 for difficulty. I believe it should be rated at least a 3. There are some steep sections and there are some tricky descents on gravel paths. We have done many trips and this one was a little harder than most, but worth it for the views, accommodations, and alpine villages.

We are pleased that you had a good time. If we had graded the tour with three, maybe you will have missed a very beautiful tour! ;-) I am not sure, if we can change the difficulty, but we will thing about adapting the tour character a little bit!
