The Mountain Bike Region of the Kitzbühel Alps
The Perfect Mountain Bike Holiday in Tirol
The municipalities of Brixen im Thale, Kirchberg in Tyrol and Westendorf are nestled between the massifs of the Hohe Salve and the Kitzbüheler Horn on the sunny plateau of Brixental at around 800 metres.
In contrast to many other alpine valleys, the Brixental doesn't end in a valley head, but is instead open on both sides. It connects the Inn Valley in the west with the Kitzbühel range in the east. The ice-age glaciers have given the valley its basin shape and transformed the ancient mountain rocks into ideal hiking and biking terrain.
Huge Range of Routes
The bike routes in the Kitzbühel Alps span 812.5 kilometres and a total of 32,296 metres in altitude and are a real challenge for ambitious mountain bikers.
But it isn't just mountain bikers and single track fans who get their money's worth here – racing cyclists, rambling cyclists, recreational bikers and nature lovers all find their own paradise in the Kitzbühel Alps.
