Turn-by-turn directions

The Mountainbiketour in the Sulztal is one of the Highlights of the Bikereviers around Längenfeld. The ascent follows from the length of the asphalt piste (Grieser Landstraße) up to Gries. Numerous serpentines at the beginning shape the ride in a way, so that the first 500 heights of altitude pass by in flight.

About two kilometers behind the hamlet of Gries, the gravel road begins up to the Nisslalm. After crossing the Vogelas Bridge, the ascent also increases noticeably. But also the last 350 heights make the fun of the many bends. After about 12 kilometers, the sportsman can park his bike at the 2051 meter high hut (possibility to stop). The view stretches to the north to the Stubai Alps.

The rapid descent follows the route. At the "Vögelasbrücke", however, the biker turns left onto the "Nederweg", which leads back to Längenfeld on the left side of the "Fischbach".
