High-Alpine Challenge

Ferner Trail


The BIKE REPUBLIC’s new alpine natural singletrack starts at the Tiefenbach glacier and carves its way down through super demanding terrain to Gaislach – it’s as spectacular as it is challenging!

The trailhead of the Fernar Trail High is located in the heart of a jaw-dropping scenery high up at 2.800 m. From the top to the bottom it requires all of your skills, powers and focus as the rocky route is very exposed. Via the Petznersee you face super-steep terrain, tight switchbacks and boulders blocking your way. At the end in Gaislach stop to recover before hitting the the Löple and then the Nene Trail. Chill on the BROATE LINE and then finish with the Schtecklar Trail.


From 04th of July every Saturday, Sunday & Tuesaday a shuttle will take you to the Tiefenbach glacier if the weather conditions are good.

  • You meet at 8:15 Uhr at the Gaislachkoglbahn car park
  • In case of bad weather conditions, the shuttle is moved to the next fixed day. You receive a voucher. If it’s not possible to shuttle you will receive your money back.
  • Registration until 16:30 o’clock the day before, booking only possible at the ticket office of the Gaislachkoglbahn
  • Limited to 20 riders per day • Price: 29,– €

The Bike Republic opens its borders

We're back!!! Due to the Corona virus it was not clear for a long time when we could open our borders for you citizens again. But now we also have certainty and from Thursday, 11.06.2020, we can welcome you again every day in the most fluid two-wheeler republic of the Alps.

Info: From 11.06.2020 the Gaislachkoglbahn I, the Langeggbahn and the Zentrum Shuttle will be in operation. The Giggijochbahn and the Hochsölden-Rotkoglbahn will be available from 26.06.2020.

Families, pump it (up)!

A detour to the Bike Republic is a great opportunity for a short break for the whole family. The kids have a large selection of simple, blue shaped lines. Both young and old will also find the Rollin Pumptrack, located diagonally opposite the Gaislachkogl valley station, an ideal opportunity to hone their riding technique. By the way, with the Sunny we have another pump track in Sölden.


Current information about the opening hours


We are people and we are hosts through and through - and therefore currently more than ever full of spring fever. The valley blossoms, the streams rush, the animal world is bustling and we are in no way inferior to it. The preparations are in full swing and the anticipation is enormous.

We are looking forward to laughing with you again, to hearing your stories and telling ours. To see you coming down the mountain sweating and beaming from the bath. To spoil you - to see you.

You can look forward to our beautiful landscapes, to our huts and power stations, to the trails of the Bike Republic, the museums, playgrounds, panorama trails and much more. Already on May 15th the first restaurants will open, on May 29th the hotels and leisure facilities will follow. From 26 June at the latest, the complete summer programme will be at your disposal again.

The cult event - this year from 25.09.-27.09.2020

It's definitely the tastiest event on the enduro scene: The scavenger hunt in the Bike Republic Sölden. The teams have to choose their own trail routes, find the checkpoints and complete tricky missions. Tactical skill, good orientation and the best of moods are required. There is no prize money for the men and women of each team, but there is the "Golden Giant Schnitzel", material prizes from sponsors and of course a big party.

This year the scavenger hunt takes place in September on the Bike Republic Sölden National Day. Date: 25.09. - 27.09.2020

11. - 14.06.2020 - Cancellation Bike Opening

Dear friends of the Bike Republic Sölden,

it is with regret that we must face the facts. The Bike Opening 2020 will not be able to take place in the planned form.

The preparations for this event would normally be in full swing now. In view of the current restrictions, it is unfortunately not possible for us in Sölden to organise this event conclusively. Even if we were able to open in mid-June, we would not be able to get the opening up on short notice and professionally.

The preparation and implementation of an event of this size requires above all planning security for the participants. From today's perspective, this security does not exist. Therefore the organisation team has decided with a heavy heart to cancel the Bike Opening 2020 in June.

The paper chase will be postponed until September on Bike Republic Sölden National Day. Date: 26.09. - 27.09.

For all those who have already booked their starting place for the scavenger hunt, there are possibilities to take it with them into September. If you are unable to attend, the entry fee will be refunded.

Regarding the reservation in our house we would like to ask you to contact us.

All of us in Sölden and the Ötztal hope that things will normalize sooner rather than later. One thing we can guarantee you already now: As soon as a return to normal activities is possible, our trails and lines will be prepared in perfect shapes. We are waiting for you and are already looking forward to seeing you again.

In the meantime keep yourself fit in our home office.

And above all - stay @ home and stay xand!
