Many rental stations even hire out e-bikes with engines to help with the ascent. The mountain bike and cycling routes show off each season’s different facets to best advantage – whether it’s spring, summer or autumn, they each their own, very special charm, as well as one thing in common: pure Alpine power!
From leisurely cycle paths
to uphill challenges
The large network of mountain bike routes of varying degrees of difficulty in the Gastein Valley attracts tourers and uphill enthusiasts alike. Variety is a given, with 12 especially athletic tours. The family-friendly cycle paths down in the valley provide ideal tours for more leisurely bikers, or relaxed cycle rides for the whole family, for example the Gasteiner Radweg route (30-60km), a circular trail with wonderful views that takes you on a voyage of discovery through the Gastein Valley.
Cycle to Gastein’s Alpine huts
Several times a week, guided cycle rides for all levels of ability lead from Bad Hofgastein to Gastein’s Alpine huts. On the way up and during a delightful and refreshing stop at an Alpine hut, you find out all sorts of information about the Gastein Valley, and gain a few insider tips from the professional bike guides. Tips on riding technique ensure safety on your way back into the valley. Details and cost of tours are published in the weekly programme, and the Gastein Card gives you a reduced rate.
