Bike Trail Tirol Stage 01: Steeg - Weißenbach

This 45-kilometer long track features about 200 meters of difference in altitude. Accompanied by picture-book panoramic views, you follow the Lech mountain brook – one of Europe’s last white waters. A truly unique experience you should not miss!

  • The mighty massif of the Lechtal Alps provides a scenic backdrop along the entire route leading from Steeg to Weißenbach.
  • Criss-crossing the shores of the Lech mountain brook, you always follow the splendid Lechtal Cycleway on its way through the valley.
  • Visiting the lovely villages in the valley bottom you can make a travel back in time: enjoy a rest stop followed by a hearty snack, and marvel at the countless wooden farmhouses spread all over the area.
  • The route does not require cycling experience or special riding techniques, and is also suitable for children .

Trail description

Start at Steeg and proceed downstream on the Lechtal cycling trail (no. 9). The route is well marked, just follow the green signposts with the Bike Trail Tirol logo. You will cross the Lech river several times during your ride to Holzgau and Bach. Continue past Elbigenalp and through Häselgehr, Elmen and Stanzach until you turn right to Forchach shortly before a rope bridge. This section of the Lechtal cycling trail runs to the new wooden bridge shortly before Weissenbach. Having crossed the bridge, take a sharp right and you will reach Weissenbach am Lech after a few hundred meters.
