In the shadow of the Tschirgant mountain

This easy circular ride starts in the centre of Imst and takes cyclists past the site of an ancient rockslide on Tschirgant mountain – along a section that is also part of the Bike Trail Tirol – and on to the village of Sautens in the Ötztal Valley. On the way back, riders should definitely stop off at the AREA 47 outdoor adventure park before continuing to the starting point in Imst.

  • Fans of outdoor adventure sports should pay a visit to Area 47, an adventure park offering a wide range of adrenaline-pumping activities spread over 66 hectares. Highlights include a 350m rope slide, a 20 hectare Water AREA featuring a water jump for snowboarders, freestyle skiers and BMX riders looking to try out new tricks, a 10.5m tall deep water soloing climbing wall for those not afraid of getting wet when they fall from the wall, and the Climbing Area with its 27m high climbing wall, the highest of its kind in Austria. Area 47 also includes a waterslide park with a huge 27m high diving tower.
  • Many centuries ago the Römerbadl Roppen Kneipp facility was famous for its holy water. The calcium-magnesium-sulphate-hydrogen-carbonate spring water retains a temperature of 12-13°C throughout the year.
  • The earth pyramids in Roppen were shaped by sediments from the last Ice Age, some 20,000 years ago. The only other places in North Tirol that such pyramids can be found is in the Wipptal Valley and Serfaus. A circular hike lasting 1 ½ hours is the ideal way to admire these fascinating formations shaped by nature.
