Description

The KitzTrail E-BIKE AND HIKE takes us by electric mountain bike through varied landscapes to the wild and romantic Auracher Wildalm. After a well-earned rest there, we leave our bikes behind and climb to the peak of Mount Gebra on foot.

:: We start at the Kitzbühel tourism office in the centre of Kitzbühel. On our electric mountain bikes, we follow the Ache river towards Aurach. 
:: At Gasthof Auwirt, we initially head straight on for 200 metres. When the road branches, we head towards the Wildpark. Shortly afterwards, we reach the wild and romantic Oberaurach.
:: Shortly before the famous Wildpark, we take a gravel path to the Hochwildalmhütte, an establishment run
by Champions League-winning footballer Wolfgang Feiersinger (Borussia Dortmund), where we enjoy some delicious delicacies. You absolutely have to try a piece of mountain cheese, which is made in the immediate vicinity in the Auracher Wildalm by the Koidl family.
:: After a well-earned rest on the delightful sun terrace, we leave our bikes behind to head on foot to the peak of Mount Gebra, known locally as Ranggen. Once we reach the top, we enjoy an amazing view of the surrounding Tyrolean mountains. 
:: We head back to the Hochwildalmhütte, get back on our electric mountain bikes – and head to the tranquil holiday village of Aurach. In the town centre, the Hallerwirt awaits us – an original farmhouse with a restaurant, where we enjoy traditional Tyrolean cuisine.
:: Totally relaxed, we head back the remainder of the way to Gamsstadt in Kitzbühel via Auracher Dörfl and the Bichlhof sport and spa hotel.

TIP: You can hire a suitable electric mountain bike in Kitzbühel from Intersport Kitzsport, Sport 2000 Etz and element3. It’s best to bring your own cycle helmet. Please note: this route is only recommended for experienced mountain bikers.

 

Tip: Don’t miss out on the chance to try an ownreared “Jochberger Hummeln” steak!
