The city of Innsbruck has proclaimed itself the ‘capital of the Alps’ and rightfully so. Many people visit the former host of the Winter Olympics for an active outdoor holiday.

In winter that means skiers and snowboarders glide down the mountains, but once the snow starts melting, the mountain bike trails appear. Ski slopes are transformed into a bike park and it’s here where some of the best professional mountain bikers in the world come to compete at Crankworx.

Mountain Bike Trails at Bikepark Innsbruck

There are two main mountain bike locations in Innsbruck: The bikepark and the Nordkettenbahnen. Both areas are just outside the city, making the commute simple.

The Bikepark Innsbruck has five trails ranging from beginner friendly to expert, including a jumpline. All trails can be reached by cable car and there is a tram taking you directly from the centre of Innsbruck to the cable car station. At the bikepark you also find a family-friendly practice area, pumptrack and dual slalom. 

The trails consist mostly of flowy singletrack with fun features like wall rides and switchbacks. Most trails are great for intermediate riders. For those looking for an extra challenge, “The Straight One” and “The Rough One” are great line choices.

Trails at Innsbrucker Nordkettenbahnen

If the bikepark is not enough for you, you can ride out to the Nordkettenbahnen. These are located just north of the city. 

The Nordkette Singletrail is the most impressive and can be reached by cable car. With a length of 4.3km and an altitude difference of 1,020m it is one of Europe’s most challenging downhill mountain bike trails.

A little lower in the valley start the Arzler Alm and Stadtwald trail. These singletrack routes are more flowy and better suitable for intermediate riders.
