The little village of Zwieselstein makes a perfect trailhead for this splendid MTB tour. For a short track you follow the main road in southern direction until you reach the first bend.

Pedaling straight ahead you continue on the most attractive and varied stage of this tour which is especially recommended on hot days as it travels through the shady forest, along the refreshing waters of Venter Ache mountain brook. Take a short break and admire the stones formed by the waters rushing down into the valley. In winter this track is famous among cross-country skiers! The return route via Bodenegg leads along an easy single trail. Here you can take a wonderful break while enjoying traditional Tirolean dishes.

This trail is also perfectly suitable to get used to the climate on your very first day in the Ötztal: remember that Zwieselstein is located at almost 1500 m above sea level.
