Kitzbüheler Cycling Marathon

After the world premiere in 2021, the Kitzbühel Cycling Marathon once again gives itself a "Stell-Dich-Ein". With 216 kilometers and 4600 meters of altitude, the Kitzbühel Cycling Marathon is a challenge for every cyclist. With the climb up the Kitzbüheler Horn there is also a befitting "Grande Finale"!

Start: Kitzbühel | Finish: Kitzbüheler Horn

Karte Kitzbühel Marathon

Starting in the front town of Kitzbühel, the course leads over Pass Thurn into the Pinzgau region on the Gerlos federal road.

The course reveals a wonderful view of the Großvenediger and of the Krimml Waterfalls before climbing steeply up the new Gerlos alpine road. With two passes in the legs, the Zillertal heads out of the valley to Bruck. The flat ride comes to an end when the Kerschbaumer Sattel has to be conquered. This pass winds its way over into the Alpbach Valley with its narrow and steep road. Once there, the route leads to Brixlegg, Kramsach, makes a loop over Brandenberg to get to Angerberg and back to Kitzbühel via the Brixental. There it awaits, the final climb up the steepest bike mountain in Austria: the Kitzbüheler Horn!

The Horn Stage

In 2018, the Horn Stage was selected as one of the ten Great Rides in Tirol. The panoramic road leading up the Kitzbüheler Horn is the steepest road for cyclists in Austria and is considered to be one of the classic challenges on the international cycling scene. In order to conquer this steep alpine road, cyclists must overcome a constant incline of 10 to 22 percent and around 900 vertical metres over a distance of just 10 kilometres stretching from the valley up to the Alpenhaus restaurant. The route is also an interesting challenge for mountain bikers, who can even choose to tackle an additional 320 vertical metres from the Alpenhaus up to the summit.

Insider tip: a permanent timekeeping system allows amateur athletes to track how quickly they can cycle up to the Alpenhaus for free.
