Bicycle excursions in Ötztal

Art & culture, Engelswand & fairytale forest

A bicycle is the most beautiful way to be on the road, not only on long tours. It is also the ideal way to explore the huge number of excursion destinations within the valley: If cycling with children on the Ötztal Cycle Trail, you can directly reach exciting playgrounds and adventure areas, such as the Kids Park in Oetz, the Ötzi Village or the Birds of Prey Park. Those who love water should head for fantastic lake Piburger See (you can take a refreshing swim or just enjoy a stop off and go boating). Action sports fans get together at the AREA47 and wellness lovers at the Aqua Dome spa center. Culture vultures should definitely visit Ötztal's museums in Lehn and Oetz. Here you will find only a small and inspiring selection.

This list is only a small (but fine) selection of cycling destinations available in Ötztal. However, there is so much more to discover in Tirol's longest side valley!
