With the mountain around the Achensee Region
The regions Karwendel and Rofan are ideal for cycling holidays. With around 250 km sign-posted cycle routes, there is certainly something for everyone. To cycle along the relatively flat 15 km lake-side road is comfortably easy for everyone. On the other hand, there are the more difficult to really difficult mountain-bikes routes which attract many bikers due to their diversity and beauty.
We have our own bicycle hire. Their pedals are waiting to be pushed along the lake-side, along the river Isar in Bavaria, next to the river Inn in the Inn-valley or into the mountains of the Karwendel and Rofan Mountains.
As tested Hotel by the Tyrolean Tourist Board for cycles and bikes, we have qualified and passed all the needed criteria! Here you will find an over view of the main mountain-bike routes:
