Mountain biking & road cycling
Be at one with nature on your bike. More than 400 km of signposted bike routes, gentle cycle paths and steeper trails give cyclists every opportunity to get going on their pedals. A special highlight for all bikers is a ride up to the Rettenbachferner. At 2,800 metres, it is reputed to be the highest asphalted destination in Europe. Those who want to enjoy good roads and driving conditions with fantastic views will find just what they’re looking for in Sölden. And for those who don’t want to climb quite so high, there is sure to be a suitable route.
An El Dorado for mountain biking
While people refer to other places as a “Bike Park” elsewhere, Sölden is known as a “Bike Republic”. It was founded in 2015, launching one of the most ambitious bike projects in the alps – in terms of its diversity, welcoming culture and sustainability.
Why a “nation” for bikers? Because in Sölden we do not only want to create a biking area, but also an all-encompassing bike culture where everyone feels at home.
