Unbelievable, but those mountain bikers seem to multiply! Especially when the offsprings are old enough to sit on the saddles themselves, everybody's faces gleam with excitement as the first joint tours are being planned. When the kids are a little older, around 12 years, you can start the real mountain bike challenges. But still, the tours should neither be too long nor have too much elevation gain. And the more scenery and interesting stuff is offered along the way, the longer the motivation will hold on.
Mountain roads, paths through the fields, lakes and forests – the world is an adventure park, which is easy to discover on a mountain bike.

And who doesn't go all the way, when you already know by the end awaits you delicious food, drinks and maybe some ice cream?

A mountain bike tour that makes because of their great variety of landscapes again and again to break and be amazed. Panorama over panorama, gravel paths meandering through wooden huts on green alpine meadows and then the mighty view of the Schlern. The area of the Seiseralm is known for its beauty, so the mountain bike tour up to Zallinger Hütte is a real eye-catcher. If you have any spare, you could also go over to the rustic little marmot hut.
A light and comfortable mountain bike tour that leads over gravel and tar through the Grossarl Valley to the Aigenalm or Paul hut. The majority of the slope is distributed over about 5 kilometers, so the children should already bring experience and fitness on the mountain bike. At the Paulhütte you can then stop for refreshment - or if you still have power reserves, still drive up the steep track to the Mandlhütte.
This mountain bike tour is with 300 to 700 meters altitude - depending on the starting point - a moderately difficult mountain bike tour, which is also feasible with children. From Terfens im Inntal up to the Ganalm Karwendel. The Karwendelgebirge impresses with its rugged rocks. This is also through the Vomper hole, which is also sometimes called "Grand Canyon" of Tyrol.
Short and crisp. Here it goes neatly up but with a few breaks, the tour is also good for children, as it runs on easy paths. The rush on the Gindelalm is not always so great on nice days. And if you take the few extra meters up to the Gindelalmschneid, you can enjoy the fantastic view in peace and relax in the grass.
With 500 meters of altitude it has the tour for children in itself, but the slope is distributed nicely evenly. It goes on good forest roads, mostly shady through the forest uphill. At the bottom of the Soilalm you will find really beautiful sculptures carved directly into the tree trunk, such as the two ibexes that you can see in the pictures. Once at the top you should still make the detour up to the lake, if you're lucky it is also filled. Otherwise, the fountain in front of the Soilalm must serve for cooling.
From the car park of the Lederstube you go up to the same or even further to the Hofalm. The gravel road is sometimes challenging, but keep the altitude well within limits. Since the path always leads along the water in the hotter months well feasible and if necessary you can still tap your feet in the water.
A popular mountain bike tour in the Tyrolean lowlands. Either you start directly from Hopfgarten or you drive by car into the Windau and park at a suitable place along the road. On the track there are plenty of opportunities to stop and take a break. At the latest on the wonderfully situated Gamskoglhütte, one has earned a fortification and just enjoys the panorama.The slope is limited on the track, there is only one place where pedaling a bit more must be - but children with some mountain bike experience need not descend here. The route runs largely through the forest and next to a stream, so cool in the summer.
From Donnersbachwald up to the Lärchkaralm leads up a beautiful mountain bike tour, which is well suited for children because of their length and the just over 300 vertical meters. Maybe just the right beginner's tour to get a feeling as a child, what it means to do a mountain bike tour.The slope is pleasantly even over the entire route, without any steep surprises. On the Lärchkaralm there's a refreshment and a nice mountain stream to cool off. By the way, Donnersbachwald is also known for its gemstones, maybe the children will find some in the creek.
