Striking mountain peaks, unforgettable panoramic views, untouched alpine pastures and trails as far as the eye can see – the Kitzbühel Alps and the bike paradises of Brixental and Kitzbühel in Austria are a true El Dorado for mountain bikers.

We’ve put together seven bike routes in this Collection where enjoyment is King. You’ll ride through beautiful mountain pastures on flowing trails, stopping to taste regional Tyrolean specialties at the alpine huts en route. Both the trails and food in this Collection will make your mouth water.

Before you lose yourself dreaming of Tyrolean bacon dumplings, cheese spätzle, or a hearty Brettljause plate of cold meats, you should check out Brixental’s mountain biking menu. For starter and dessert, you can stay in special mountain biking hotels in the villages of Brixen im Thale, Kirchberg, and Westendorf. With a comfortable night’s rest, you can make sure you are ready for the main course – biking.

You can catch one of the lifts up into the mountains where trails take you to remote corners of the region. You can choose between easy rides for the whole family or challenging long day rides and alpine crossings. Exciting events are held here such as the KAT Alpine crossing and the Bikeschaukel Tirol, too.

This Collection is ideal if you are just getting to know the area around Brixental on your mountain bike. We’ve chosen several relatively easy Tours and some which are more challenging. Choose your route based on your riding ability and physical fitness. You may want to start with an easy route and gradually increase the difficulty. No matter which adventure you choose, you will find plenty of places to stop for food en route.

The region’s transport is well set up for bikers. In summer, you can catch one of the many mountain railways with your bike so it’s easy to adjust your route or change your plans last minute. Take a look at the special biker tickets. You can find more information, here: kitzbueheler-alpen.com/en/summer/cyclist-mountainbiken/biketransport.html.

    With more than seven kilometers, the Fleckalm Trail is one of the longest single trails in the country and is one of the "GREAT TRAILS TYROLS". The fact alone that you leave around 1,000 meters of altitude behind you actually says it all. It is an almost endless descent with many jumps, challenging root

    First the climb - then the pleasure. That could be the motto of this tour. In fact, you have already left the demanding part of the loop around the Hohe Salve behind you after around six kilometers and 500 meters of altitude. In other words: this tour begins with a steep ascent that takes you into the

This little round, which starts directly in Brixen im Thale, combines everything a beautiful bike tour needs: a good portion of sweat, a wonderful nature experience, mountain panorama like from a picture book, an enjoyable break and

    The tour to the Rotwandalm at the far end of the Windau valley - one of the three side valleys of the Brixental - is a pleasure for all the senses. At the very back of the valley with a magnificent view is the Rotwandalm. Cheese is still made here according to the old tradition and offered with other

Immediately after the valley station of the KiWest cable car (just before Aschau), turn right onto route 261 to the Brechhornhaus. From here you go steadily uphill through the forest and alpine
