Mountain biking in the Alps - the Burgwald Trail

Biking for all

485 vertical metres and about 3 km long sounds like a considerable ride. And believe us, it really is. The so-called Burgwald Trail winds its way alongside the toboggan run from Oberlech down to Lech am Arlberg and demands something from both bike and biker. The route was planned with fun in mind for both mountain biking experts and intermediates alike. And if the bike trail itself isn’t enough, there are various extra features that have been installed along the route. If you want to take the easier route, then you can avoid these passages by following the “Easy Line”.

Bike and Hike

A combination of mountain biking and hiking

Combining the laid-back with the speedy - bike and hike - a combination that is becoming increasingly popular. Quick, carefree and close to nature, the (e-)bike takes you to great starting points for further hiking tours. 

Lech - Freiburger Hütte - Saladinaspitze

Bike & Hike

Extensive but rewarding - this is how the Bike & Hike summit tour to the Saladinaspitze presents itself. Physical fitness and experience are required! The route takes you by bike to Zug, towards Lake Formarin and on to the Freiburger Hütte. From there, the challenging trail leads through a green high valley, a wide rocky field and further along a narrow ridge up to the Saladinaspitze with a peak on 2,238m. Magnificent views as far as the Klostertal and the Montafon as well as a heart-shaped hole in the rock face reward the ascent.

Lech- Freiburgerhütte - Roggelskopf

Bike & Hike

The tour begins by bike in the direction of Zug, past Lake Formarinsee to the bike destination, the Freiburger Hütte. The route then continues on a footpath through alpine meadows along the Masonweg and follows the ridge below the Gwurfjoch. Cross a gravel field until you reach the foot of the mountain. From there, a steep ascent leads to the summit, with some easy climbing sections, some of which are equipped with rope protection. It is important to be sure-footed and not afraid of heights - the company of a mountain guide is recommended!

Lech - Formarinalpe - around the Formaletsch

Bike & Hike

The cycle tour begins in the picturesque Zugertal valley and continues along the asphalt road past the Älpele tavern to the turn-off towards Formarinalpe. Shortly after the famous ibex sculpture at the start of the Lechweg trail, park your bike and continue your journey on foot. The path leads you to the Stony Sea, where you can discover numerous fossils such as ammonites. For those who enjoy climbing peaks, a short detour to the Formaletsch is worthwhile. The winding path leads up to the 2,292-metre-high panoramic mountain. The path on the eastern shore of the lake requires a sure foot, a head for heights and good footwear. With smaller children, it is better to use the wider gravel path.

- Through forests, over mountains and along rivers - every moment in nature is a gift that we should welcome with open arms! -
