Cycling in and around Obergurgl

Mountain biking in the Oetztal

hose who are passionate about cycling should make sure to ride up to the Timmelsjoch, the highest point of the legendary Ötztal Cycling Marathon, at least once. From Obergurgl, the 2,509 high Timmelsjoch is actually relatively easy to get to. Should you want to get even higher up in Obergurgl, then grab a mountain bike. If your legs allow, you can pedal up to a staggering 3,080 metres in Obergurgl. You'll hardly get any higher up by mountain bike anywhere in the Alps.

Discover the Bike-Region Oetztal

Of course, you can also take things more leisurely if you prefer. To warm up, a tour along the Gurgler Ache river is in order, maybe followed by a trip to the Langtalereckhütte lodge with views of the glaciers that once reached all the way up here. To get some variety, make an outing to Sölden where not only specially designed trails are waiting for your mountain bike, but also numerous other tour options. After a few strenuous hours on the bike, a relaxing foray into the wellness zone of the apartment house Gurglhof is recommended.
