5-Valleys Mountain Bike Tour | Bludenz

This tour is one of the highlights of the MTB routes around Bludenz. With 4 overnight stays along the way, there is almost a little Transalp feeling. Of course, the 4 stages can also be mastered with Bludenz as the daily starting point. The tour is also designed for e-bikes: no carrying passages and sufficient charging stations are available.

Stage 1: Brandnertal incl. Bikepark Brandnertal with overnight stay in Bürserberg (1330 hm / with use of mountain railroad 940 hm)

From Bludenz leisurely on paved bike path to Brand. With the support of the village railroad in the direction of Parpfienzsattel (who wants to collect altitude meters takes the freight road to the mountain station) and then enjoy the single trails in the Bikepark Brandnertal to Tschengla/Bürserberg.

Stage 2: Walgau with overnight stay in Gerachhaus (1180 hm)

From Tschengla/Bürserberg first down into the Walgau before it goes in Satteins on freight roads up towards Sender - constant companion: the panorama! For an overnight stay in the Gerachhaus please contact family Burtscher (florian.burtscher@hotmail.com) in time.

Stage 3: Großes Walsertal with overnight stay in Bludenz (1190 hm)

Directly from Gerachhaus partly on single trails down towards Ludesch. Collect altitude meters to Raggal or Ludescherberg and enjoyable on the Muttersberg. For technicians the famous single trail Muttersberg down to Bludenz - for connoisseurs the Güterweg.

From Bludenz on the Klostertal cycle path always along the river Alfenz to the valley station Sonnenkopf/Wald am Arlberg.
