Cycling and camping in Tyrol: part 1/3
DISCOVER THE BEAUTY OF TYROLEAN LANDSCAPES
High mountains, tranquil alpine pastures and picturesque villages, in between babbling brooks, deep forests and proud castles and palaces: that is Tyrol. The region is so diverse and multifaceted that it would be a shame to spend your vacation in just one place.
That's why many combine their vacation at a Top Camping Austria site with extended bike tours. There are plenty of attractive destinations: all around the Tyrolean campsites, countless scenic, cultural and historical highlights invite you to a short flying visit. So feel free to leave your car behind and hop on your bike. After all, it's much more fun to admire all the sights from the saddle of a bike: with the breeze blowing around your nose and the sun on your skin. In the following we will introduce you to the Tyrolean Top Camping Austria sites with its extensive possibilities for cyclists.
Although the Zugspitze, at almost 3000 meters, is not exactly a small mountain, this does not mean that mainly arduous climbs await you in the region. Quite the opposite: in this part of Tyrol you can climb into the saddle and start cycling without any worries. The network of bike paths covers more than 900 kilometers and offers everything a cyclist's heart desires: idyllic tours for pleasure cyclists and families, but also more challenging routes for sporty mountain bikers. The Zugspitz Resort is simply ideal as a starting point for unforgettable bike tours. There is, for example, the Ehrwald-Round with its fantastic views of the Zugspitze. Or the no less attractive, but somewhat more demanding Biberwier-Runde. Both tours are packed with fascinating highlights. If your legs are a little heavy afterwards, you can of course indulge yourself in the active and vital world of the Zugspitz Resort!
Those who spend their vacations in the vacation paradise Natterer See can be happy. They will not only spend their vacations on a multiple award-winning Top Camping Austria site, but will also enjoy wonderful tours for pleasure cyclists, mountain bikers and racing cyclists. The more than 120-kilometer-long network of trails leads past lush pastures and over rolling hills through breathtaking mountain scenery. One of the most beautiful tours is the leisurely Lake Natterer round route from Mutters. For sporty cyclists awaits the Raitis Round which also starts in Mutters. Both routes lead past picturesque bathing spots: If you like, you can make a stop in between and refresh yourself in the cool water. It's a good thing that several restaurants in the camping resort invite you to feast, because so much exercise in the fresh air makes you hungry!
In the beautiful Zillertal, every cyclist gets his money's worth, because the 1200 kilometer (!) long trail network includes both leisurely and action-packed routes. But no matter which variant you choose, the magnificent backdrop of the Zillertal and Tux Alps is always your companion. There is a lot to discover along the way: playgrounds and snack stations, for example, but also spectacular viewpoints and rushing water. Especially popular is the Finnsingbach round from Ried, which is pleasantly manageable at around 13 kilometers. In contrast, under the motto "Zillertal dream view" is the Grünalm Round snack station. Here, of course, the name says it all! By the way: Camping Aufenfeld has a practical bike rental and keeps modern city and mountain bikes - if necessary also with helmet - ready for you!
The Alpbach Valley is a true paradise for cyclists and full of surprises. Sometimes a romantic alpine atmosphere awaits you, sometimes an endearing village flair. The many bike and mountain bike trailspromise fun and variety for all ages and abilities. Everywhere, rustic inns with fantastic views invite you to take a break. Among bikers a real insider tip: the Rattenberg round with its many worth seeing high points. Here it is always worth getting off the bike! Experienced cyclists look forward to the Snack station Scheffach Alm round which leads through a paradisiacal landscape. At Camping Seeblick Toni bikers are of course well accommodated. The campsite with its luxurious wellness facilities and first-class cuisine will get tired limbs going again and make you fit for new exciting tours.
Guests have a good laugh at Euro Camp Kössen, because the Kaiserwinkl offers extremely much for cyclists. From easy pleasure tours at the foot of the Kaiser Mountains to challenging mountain bike tours up to beautiful huts and alpine pastures, the choice is large and decidedly varied. Whether you go around the Unterberg in Kössen or explore the mystical moorland between Walchsee and Rettenschöss, the beauty of nature will take your breath away many a time. The Mountain tour from Kössen with a magnificent view of Walchsee is particularly recommended and does not require any special skills. The Tyrolean Achen Round offers a whole wealth of fantastic start-up destinations. It's a good thing that you can relax and unwind at Eurocamp after your tour!
In the middle of the Kitzbühel Alps there is a network of more than 1000 kilometers of cycling and mountain bike trails. The decision is certainly not always easy: do we cycle leisurely past the shimmering green Pillersee today or do we admire the beautiful old farms on the valley floor? Should we perhaps even dare a sweaty mountain tour? Whatever you feel like, you will find the right tour. Those who want to look to the Wilder Kaiser would like, choose the popular round from Fieberbrunn. Also starting in Fieberbrunn is the Circular trail to the moor bath at the Lauchsee lake, which leads through a unique nature. Afterwards, you may indulge yourself in the five-star wellness facility of Tirol Camp Fieberbrunn: You have earned it!
