MTB tour through the Sulztal valley

From Längenfeld in the Ötztal valley to Gries and up to the Amberger Mountain Hut at 2,135 m a.s.l., the mountain bike route leads through the Sulztal valley.

At the roundabout in Längenfeld the Grieser Straße road starts, which is the first part of the route. Via a series of hairpin bends above the Ötztal, the first 200 metres of altitude difference are mastered, then the route enters the Sulztal. The route on the northern side of the valley is an asphalt valley road leading to the village of Gries. After crossing the village, the road reaches a car park; from there it continues along the forest road, where the asphalt is soon replaced by gravel.

Always following the course of the Fischbach stream, the gravel road first leads to the lower Sulztalalm, then follows the last steep ascent, which leads to the upper Sulztalalm hut and the Amberger Mountain Hut. From the mountain hut at 2,135 m a.s.l., one can see as far as the glaciers on the Daunkogel. The descent is done along the same path; alternatively, the gravel road can be chosen, which leads from the level of Gries on the southern side of the Fischbach stream to Längenfeld.
