Mountainbike Ride
Bayreuther Hütte & Bergalm

Riders wishing to take on this mountaibike ride to the Bayreuther Hütte hut (1,576m) and the nearby Bergalm hut (1,560m) in the Rofan Mountains will need plenty of determination and leg power. The reward for all that hard work is a spectacular view of the Inn Valley. Starting from the town of Münster, the route measuring 8.5km and with 1,033 vertical metres of climbing leads up along a steep forest trail to the Bayreuther Hütte hut. The trail is steep but contains no tricky or technical sections. Those who still have the energy can leave their bike at the hut and walk to the Zireiner See lake – or even climb the Sagzahn (2,228m) mountain.

Trail description

The ride begins in the Grünbach district of Münster. A tarmac path leads into the forest before changing into a steep gravel trail. Follow the signs for Bayreuther Hütte and Sonnwendjoch (MTB route 332). There is little time to warm up – kilometre one has sections of up to 18%. As you wind your way through the thick forest there are a few clearings every now and then revealing fine views of the Inn Valley. After a while you will reach an area of open meadowland at the foot of the mighty Vorderes Sonnenwendjoch mountain. From here is is just 2km to the Bayreuther Hütte (1,576 metres) offering fine views of the Inn Valley far below.

Riders can either return along the same route or descend to the Bretterhütte hut on the edge of the forest, where they turn left and later cross onto the eastern side of the Habacherbach river before continuing into the valley.
