30.08.2020 - 40. Ötztal Cycle Marathon


Ready for the probably hardest, but also most impressive racing experience to be found in the Alps? Every year countless hobby sportsmen and women take up the challenge of the Ötztal Valley. The cycling marathon demands everything from them, and it is not for nothing that this energy-sapping sporting event is considered a highlight in the racing bike scene and a knighthood for every racing cyclist. Registration is easy online from 1 to 29 February 2020, but you'll need a little luck. Because the 4,000 coveted and limited participant places will be determined by lot in the first half of March. The selected ones can look forward to a starting place.

The unrivaled Ötztaler Cycle Marathon is synonymous with the absolute highlight for the world's best hobby cyclists. Some 4000 cycling aficionados from 15 different countries will meet at the start in Sölden on 30 August 2020 - ready to conquer the classic "Ötztaler" loop course that covers incredible 238 km.

Ötztal, the Peak of Tirol, offers heaps of exhausting passages along the cycle marathon track: Four steep Alpine passes featuring almost 5500 altitude meters have to be conquered.

The marathon course travels from Kühtai (2020 m) down to Innsbruck and up again to Brenner Pass (1370 m), then down to Sterzing and uphill to Jaufen Pass (2090 m) before continuing on the queen's stage up to Timmelsjoch Pass (2509 m). Ready, steady, cycle ...

25.06. - 28.06.2020 - Ötztal moped marathon

The Ötztaler Moped Club is now going into the 7th round. So if you really want to ride through the Alps slowly, then this is the place for you!

Due to the short term track changes in 2019, the feedback from almost 70% of the participants was overwhelmingly positive to stay in the Ötztal. If the worst comes to the worst, faster at home, you can see ALL riders and not just a part of them. This and much more speaks for staying in the valley. Partly also off the main road. Every route has its own charm and at the end there is always a great partner club that will come up with something for you. Always accompanied by Petrol Radio.

In only one registration wave you have the possibility to take care of your club membership. As always, the proven "first come, first served" principle applies.

08.01.2020 - Peace and relaxation combined with a sledge ride

If you are looking for a day's rest and relaxation from skiing, the quiet side of Sölden with the Stallwiesalm is also a worthwhile destination in winter.

As one of the most rustic alpine pastures in the Ötztal with the additional feature of afternoon sun, the Stallwies' (1,850 m), as the Ötztalers call their alp, is a destination for the whole year.

That means: for every single day, because the Stallwies is open almost all year round. Locals also like to make a detour to the Stallwies. The house is already 350 years old.

This hiking route is a rewarding mountain hike in the Ötztal Alps in Tyrol.

From the Freizeit Arena Sölden it goes along the Granbichlstraße (Granbichl district) to the Windachtal valley. The forest road leads through sparse coniferous forest and with every meter of altitude the views of the opposite mountain range of the Geigenkamm become more exciting.

Gradually the forest thins out and opens up onto a wide alpine meadow with old huts made of dark wood. The one with the beautiful sun terrace is the Stallwies.

In winter you can go downhill on a sledge, which can be rented at the alpine hut or you can go back on foot.
