Wilder Kaiser Cycle Route

The Wilder Kaiser MTB Route connects Wörgl with the villages on the sunny side of the Kaiser Mountains and with St. Johann in Tirol

Starting in Wörgl we cycle through the Brixental valley towards southeast: The Wilder Kaiser Cycle Route (Radweg Wilder Kaiser) follows the Ache river upstream. After the village of Bruckhäusl, where the Brixental Cycle Route R21 branches off, the path ascends to the Söllandl through a landscape with meadows. After passing the village of Söll, we continue north of the Lofer A-Road through the valley below Scheffau to Ellmau and Going am Wilden Kaiser.

Always with view on the majestic Kaiser Mountains we change to the northern side of the valley. Across meadows and woods, on forest paths we cycle down to St. Johann in Tirol, where the MTB route joins the Leukental Cycle Route and the Kalkstein Cycle Route. From spring to autumn, you will find a beautiful landscape, and the villages along the path are also worth a visit. This bike tour shines with a high recreational factor and beautiful views on the surrounding alpine world.
