Whether you want to explore the city, go on a longer cycling trip or venture out into the mountains, cycling is one of the best ways to stay active while exploring your holiday destination area. As a bicycle-friendly city, Innsbruck offers ideal conditions for exploring the city safely and from what must be one of the best vantage points. At the same time, the surrounding mountains have plenty to offer mountain bikers.

Cycling is a hot trend 

Innsbruck ranks right at the top of Austria's most bicycle-friendly cities. According to a survey, Innsbruck residents cycle 23% of the total distances travelled – a percentage that has not been beaten by any other Austrian city to date. The city's infrastructure plays a significant part in cycling's popularity. Well-thought-out solutions in road construction, cycling zones, bike parking facilities and signposts all make cycling in Innsbruck an extremely attractive option.

In addition, travelling by bike is ideal for exploring the city and discovering things that might otherwise have remained hidden. Not to mention the flexibility, the beneficial effects on fitness and the freedom from stress that cycling offers.

Mountain biking and cycling for enjoyment

Innsbruck also has a lot of leisure opportunities to offer mountain bikers and cyclists. The mountainous landscape of the surrounding Tyrolean countryside alone exerts an almost irresistible attraction. The countryside offers a wonderful playground, not just for hikers, mountain climbers and golfers, but also for cyclists and mountain bikers.

A total of 115 km of mountain bike trails run through the Innsbruck region and its 25 holiday villages. The MTB region features difficulty levels ranging from 600 to 2,250 metres in altitude to satisfy every requirement. If you're looking for an adrenaline kick, there are plenty of trails and downhills on the Hungerburg single trail or the single trail on Innsbruck's local mountain, the Nordkette.

You don't have to have to tackle mountainous terrain right away, however: try the Inn cycling path and its subsidiary routes for more leisurely cycling or cycling with children.
