Ellbögen is a pleasant holiday village that runs on friendly tourism and its beautiful location makes it a good base for cycling trips. But the village is also definitely worth a visit from Innsbruck. The way there is a scenic tour through the peaceful and picturesque Viggarrtal to the Meissner Haus.You start at the Zirbenhof on the Oberstraße in Ellbögen, where you can park your car in the parking lot. If you prefer to come by bus, it is best to take line 4141 from Innsbruck, which takes you from the main station to the Ellbögen Gattinger stop. From here it is only a short distance to the start of this tour.From Ellbögen you quickly gain height via two hairpin bends. After that it is a little more steadily uphill. You cycle on the northern slope of the Mühltaler Berg in the Viggartal through the forest to the idyllic Meissner Haus, where you can regain your strength. If you want, you can take a nice walk from there. From the Meissner Haus you can take a trip on foot to the Patscherkofel, the Glungezer Hütte, the Morgenkogel or the Kreuzspitze. This makes this short trip a great cycling and walking experience. If you want to keep it short and compact, you can of course also make the long descent back to Ellbögen. Whichever variant you choose: the return journey is in any case a fantastic part of this Tour.
