• Your vacation flirt
    is serpentine.

Ötztal belongs to the Racing Bike
We change the forest paths for asphalt road surfaces.

Smooth, clean and curvy: those are the roads in Ötztal. They are perfect for your racing bike. Majestically, they wind throughout the 67 kilometre long Valley. Over mountains, meadows and ‘dreamy’ villages. The gradients rear up before you, and make for much sweat and burning calves. Afterwards, you get the joy and the ‘heady’ speeds of the downhill run. Enjoy your racing-bike highlight during your vacation in Sölden – ‘Rettenbachferner’. This gigantic glacier is the highest point in the whole Alpine Region, which can be mastered by your racing bike. At its 2,830 metres of altitude, it is higher than the famous ‘Cime de la Bonette’ in France, which for most bike riders is the highest of the Alpine passes. From there, you can ride the newly asphalted Ötztal Glacier Route to the ‘Tiefenbergeferner’ and even further. Taken all in all, your racing bike vacation in Sölden will offer you over 3,800 kilometres of glorious routes with gigantic Alpine topography throughout all of Austrian Tyrol.

Over 3,800 kilometres. As well as the highest altitude racing-bike point of the entire Alps, at over 2,830 metres. Just waiting for you and your racing bike in Ötztal.
