Even the calves of bikers in top form will feel the pain! The 23-kilometre mountain bike tour uphill to the Kitzsteinhorn is a legendary challenge for uphill bikers with a strong stamina. But the delightful and unique scenery on this tour compensates for every bead of sweat on your brow.
From the lush green meadows in the centre of Kaprun, you bike - with or without the support of an electric motor - across the Maiskogel and high alpine terrain uphill to the eternal ice. You start with the best view of the centre of Kaprun via the mountain road to the Stanger station. From there, you pedal steadily uphill to the MK Maiskogelbahn mountain station. If you prefer, you can shorten this XXL tour and take the MK Maiskogelbahn up to 1,570 m. From the mountain station, you first roll along the new 3K K-onnection tour through green alpine pastures down to the quaint Ederalm 1,420 metres above sea level. But from there, it's uphill again - up to the Salzburger Hütte, the oldest building on the Kitzsteinhorn. Via Langwiedboden, the route meanders in sweeping serpentines uphill to the Alpincenter 2,450 m above sea level. Here the terrain is already high alpine and the view of Kaprun and the Zell Basin is particularly impressive.
If the batteries are empty, there is an e-bike charging station at the Restaurant Gletschermühle. And the energy levels of the bikers are also topped up here in the best culinary way. Because after all, you have so far managed 23 kilometres and 1,950 altitude metres already. After a rest with the best view, you can get back on your bike for the return trip to the valley or use the cable cars for a comfortable descent.
