That’s exactly how I imagined it, the forest road winds its way towards the sky all the time.
It gets warm as the tour leaves the forest and the view becomes clear to the glaciated peaks of the Hohe Tauern . . . I’m on a mountain bike tour in Kaprun and it’s just wonderful on the way from the valley up to the mountains!
Mountain bikers find a genuine paradise on the Kitzsteinhorn. Whether you’re a uphiller, e-biker or adrenaline-junkie free-rider – Kitzsteinhorn offers perfectly tailored trails and routes for all kinds of biking. The free-ride trails are open for all downhillers from mid-June to mid-September. The three trails range from high-alpine to natural, challenging all free-riders’ endurance on a total of 12 km and 1,500 altitude metres. E-bikers find a free charging station at Restaurant Gletschermühle on 2,450 m. Arduous uphill bikers enjoy the scenically unique ride up from Kaprun across the Maiskogel to the Alpincenter on 2,450 m.
The spotlight of the still young mountain biking scene was on Kaprun in 2002. Heavy rainfall during the cross-country contest finales. Do you remember? Today, more than 15 years later, the Maiskogel remains a mountain bike tour insiders’ tip and several tours lead to the Glocknerblick and across beautiful trails into the valley. Ride the legendary CC route of the 2002 World Championship yourself between Kaprun Castle, “Guggenbichl” and the Lechnerberg.
