With over 100 carefully selected touring tips and a total length of 4,330 km spanning 100,000 vertical meters, the region proudly represents a whole new dimension in mountain biking.

It is above all the natural backdrop - with the Zugspitze, the Wetterstein, eight lakes and pristine valleys - which serves as a unique magnet for nature-lovers.
There are also many enjoyable tours that will appeal to casual bikers as well. For a long time now, insiders have regarded this region as THE tip for a quality mountain-bike experience. The title has provided the best confirmation we could have hoped for. The many years of work which have been put in by institutions and private individuals are now bearing fruit, serving as a wonderful example of caring interaction with nature combined with a high fun factor.

Zugspitz Arena, Tyrol:

Austria's Best Mountain-Bike Region!

The magazine "Mountainbike" conducted a survey of its readers to find Austria's best region for mountain biking. Receiving 18,397 responses, it was Tyrol's Zugspitz Arena which came out a clear winner.

... which brought enormous joy to the region itself, and to our pro bike-guiding teams, who see this as recognition, confirmation and a major distinction for the professionalism they put into their work. Targeted efforts to build the mountain-bike product and the requisite infrastructure actually began some ten years ago.

Aside from a top bike-guiding school, hotels specializing in this target group, mountain bike rentals and service stations, the region offers all of those features and conveniences that are near and dear to a biker's heart. A number of hotels focus squarely on the unique needs of mountain bikers, and are now listed in prestigious biking and touring catalogues.
