Along the ancient Roman road

Via Claudia bike route

Culturally interested bikers can enter the history-laden world of ancient Rome on the Via Claudia bike route. The Tiroler Zugspitz Arena is located along the Via Claudia Augusta – a connecting route between Italy and southern Germany. Today, parts of the uncovered ancient road are accessible to bikers and hikers who want to go on a historic journey of exploration. 

Tip: Shuttle service  and bus returns ! Both give bikers a lift from May to October. The shuttle transports your luggage or takes you and your bike across the challenging route section of the Fern Pass. Another option is to return from Italy to Tyrol or Germany by bus. Busses are available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

One of the “4 Great Trails”

Blindsee trail

The local MTB highlight for advanced riders is the Blindsee trail from Grubigstein Mountain to Lake Blindsee. It was voted one of the “4 Great Trails” in Tyrol in 2018 and rewards skill and focus with a breathtaking view of the turquoise blue lake. Flowy or crisp sections, gravel passages, amazing scenic views and – to top it all off – taking a dip in the cold water of the mountain lake: What more could an MTB fanatic desire? 

Good to know: The partially challenging single track is between S2 and S3 in terms of its difficulty and thus requires a safe riding technique.
