The Vinschgau Valley is one of the many popular MTB regions in South Tyrol, but it manages to stay uniquely special. The connection from the shuttle, to the lift and riding feels more intuitive here than anywhere else. It’s not surprising that crowds of bikers make the pilgrimage to the Vinschgau Valley every year from early summer to autumn, to get their own piece of paradise.
We headed there too, fully loaded with several FOCUS bikes, in search of the holy grail of biking. We were not disappointed. From the shuttle trail to the Vinschgauer Triples to the absolute overkill of the Madritscher Joch and the relaxed lift day at the Tarscher Alm – we were totally overwhelmed by the variety of trails, the South Tyrolean landscape and the perfect infrastructure.
Leaving part of our souls on the trails, we returned to Germany as converted Vinschgau disciples. We will definitely be back.
You can reach the Vinschgau Valley by car or conveniently take the train. A long-distance train runs to Bozen where you can buy a South Tyrol ticket which gets you to any station in the Vinschgau Valley.
