WELCOME Biking in Paznaun means biking in breathtaking surroundings! The high alpine tours open up fascinating views of the mountain world of the Silvretta, Samnaun and Verwall groups. The mountain bike routes and single trails wind their way through the landscape up to 2,700 metres above sea level. The number of routes is enormous and makes every biker‘s heart beat faster. Whether you are an altitude gainer or a trail surfer, there is something for everyone.

And those who prefer to experience the mountain summer with a tailwind are just as well treated here. Many tours and even some trails are also suitable for e-bikes. So everything is possible on almost 800 kilometres of biking fun!

While strenuous uphills lead into the untouched mountain landscape, the cable cars take you to the flowing trails in comfort. A little more leisurely, but no less beautiful, the pleasure tours weave their way through the valley. Enduro trails at their best provide a combination of up and down.

And the most important thing during the bike action in nature? Close your eyes, take a deep breath and SMILE!

CODE OF CONDUCT • Know what you are capable of! Plan your tour according to your physical condition and technical ability. That‘s the most fun!

• Respect private property and barriers. Stay on designated routes and respect current road closures, also for your own safety. Close gates after passing through.

• Not too fast! Ride in a controlled manner and keep things in sight - you should expect obstacles at any time.

• Take it back! Do not leave litter on the mountain or along the trail.

• Pedestrians have priority. Announce yourself early and pass only at walking pace!

• Check your equipment! Lights, brakes, air pressure, etc. only ride with a bike that is fully checked.

• Be respectful of nature and wildlife. Stay on marked trails and only ride during daylight hours.

• Only ride with a helmet! No matter if up or down - the helmet as well as long-finger gloves are important. On trails, it‘s best to wear additional protectors.

• Respect quiet and protected zones. These are protected areas for animals and rare plants.

06

• Everything with you? A repair kit, first aid kit, mobile phone, light, sufficient food and drink should be in every backpack.


• Got everything you need? Every rucksack should contain a repair set, first aid kit, mobile phone, light and plenty of food and drink.

The continuously signposted Paznaun bike path connects the area between the Zeinisjoch at 1,800 metres and Kappl Ulmich (1,280 m). The entire route is 18 km and overcomes a good 600 metres in altitude. The path is asphalted throughout and has only slight inclines. The area between Galtür and the Zeinisjoch is not difficult, but somewhat steeper than the other sections. The cycle path connects the villages of Wirl, Galtür, Mathon, Ischgl and Kappl (hamlet of Ulmich) 1900 m

and offers repeated opportunities to take a break. In Ulmich the cycle path ends at the start of the Paznaun valley route, which then leads to See. Even though the physical and technical demands of this bike route can be classified as easy to moderately difficult, you are always in Alpine surroundings and can marvel at the mountain giants of the Silvretta, Samnaun and Verwall groups.

Switching between asphalt paths and forest roads, the route always follows the sunny side of the valley through some typical Alpine meadows and fields and briefly through a forest.

As part of the Ischgl Ironbike, the Alpenhaus Trophy route invites bikers to compete by floodlight. 2h

This route covers approx. 1,000 m of altitude along a steadily climbing asphalt road. The route heads off towards the Fimbatal valley from the outset, running uphill to the middle station of the Fimbabahn or Silvrettabahn cable car. It is also worth taking a detour to the Schwarzwassersee and Pardatscher-See lakes. Form here, the road weaves its way up towards the Pardatschgratbahn cable car.

On the route back to Ischgl, you can either take the road or the lively Paznauner Taja Trail (page 46) down towards the Fimbatal valley.

The next section leads downhill again to Ramosch and Finstermünz. This is followed by a length

This mountain biking route is ideal for an endurance training session. The entire route follows an asphalt road. The initial ascent is fairly difficult and can push bikers to their limits. If you wish to avoid this steep section, you can instead take the Fimbabahn or Silvrettabahn cable car up to the middle station (check operating hours). The ascent from here is less extreme. The valley then widens and the landscape becomes more beautiful. There is the opportunity Turn-off Middle station Silvrettabahn 2.9 km 2000 m

If you start from Ischgl, first follow the MTB route Heidelberger Hütte (MTB 7074) until you can turn left after approx. 2.5 km to the Silvrettabahn middle station (bike transport possible with the cable car). From here, continue on asphalt along the forest until you reach the Idalp after an altitude difference of approx. 700 metres in altitude. Then follow the gravel road past the Velill reservoir up to the „Äußere Viderjoch“ and the mountain station of the Flim-

jochbahn. This stage can also be shortened with the Flimjochbahn, which is open in summer as well. Once you have reached the finish, you will be rewarded with a breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains. And if you still haven‘t had enough: the starting point of the new single trail is right at the Flimjochbahn mountain station.

From the Alp Trider Sattel to the Alp Trida, it’s all about the finest flow riding fun! Once you get an initial taste of the trail feeling as a beginner, you will find yourself infected with trail fever! But experienced bikers too will immediately feel the flow of this single trail as they race down to the Alp Trida. Perfectly shaped jumps present an additional challenge. Leisure riders can slow down the tempo a little and therefore take 2550 m

There are several options from the Alp Trida: either tackle the Trider Sattel again or take the Alp Trider chairlift and try out the Alp Trida endurance trail (page 44). As an experienced cyclist, you can take the tricky and longer Schmuggler Trail (page 46) down into the valley. The spectacular Twinliner cable car will then take you back to the start.

Viderjoch starts out from the Flimjochbahn mountain station and offers magnificent views right from the outset. The route initially runs along a wellmaintained trail across stony terrain. With both bends and straight sections in parts, you finally come to a forest road and can then turn off left onto the trail. After crossing the next forest trail, the route passes through some increasingly lush vegetation. The altitude gain completed becomes evident and you are

From here, there are several options: ambitious bikers can continue on the Duty Free Ride Laret-Samnaun (page 48). Alternatively, you could opt for the gentler Alp Trider Sattel trail (page 42, accessible via the Alp Trider chairlift) or take the Flimsattelbahn chairlift back to the start.

The compact gravel road weaves its way along the mountain ridge, always following the border. A high level of fitness is required – some of the ascents are so steep that you will need to push your bike a bit. After the Greitspitzbahn chair lift, a top class trail offers an unbelievable feeling of freedom. The route follows the ridge along to the Salaaser Kopf at over 2,700 m altitude. And then the downhill part begins. It is clear why the smugglers chose this

2,861 m

route: you encounter virtually nobody here, apart from a few cows. A leisurely forest trail then runs back to the Alp Trider Sattel mountain station. The Trider Sattel (page 42) trail again offers plenty of downhill fun and leads to the destination, the Alp Trida. Here the Flimsattelbahn chairlift transports you back to the trail start point. Alternatively, the route can be lengthened by taking the Duty Free Ride Laret-Samnaun (page 48).
