Inn Cycle Route - Tiroler Oberland

From the Engadine to the centre of Innsbruck: Along the green Inn river, the cycle route proceeds through a varied landscape.

The Tyrolean Inn Cycle Route (Innradweg) is the extension of the Swiss Engadine Cycle Route (no. 6, Grisons Route). The section from the border to Finstermünz has to be cycled on the Engadine State Road. But already 1 km after the border, the cycle path in the Tyrolean Oberinntal starts. Before Pfunds, it changes to the southern side of the valley. On gravelled paths, asphalted forest roads and byways it leads to Tösens, Ried and Prutz. Here, the wide valley floor ends and the Inn flows through a partly narrow gorge to Landeck. For several times, the cycle route changes the waterside and proceeds on the bicycle lane of the state road B180, and finally on a forest path to the district capital at the junction of the Inn and Sanna rivers, to the junction into the Gurgltal.

The entire until here described route is identical with the Inn Valley section of the Via Claudia Augusta Cycle Route. Shortly before the railway station of Imst-Pitztal, the Via Claudia Augusta branches off towards the Fern Pass, whereas the Inn Cycle Route proceeds on the riverbank further to Roppen, where the valley becomes wider. Also the next section to Schlierenzau, where the Oetztal valley branches and the Ache river flows into the Inn, offers a beautiful landscape. The rivers wind through wetlands which are only interrupted by the transport infrastructure and the facilities of the Area 47. The tour continues between the Inn and the motorway, past the villages of Silz, Mötz, Stams with its Cistercian monastery until Telfs. Through the wide valley, the route almost constantly runs near the river to Zirl, Völs, and finally into the centre of Innsbruck.
