Roadbike Ride
Brandenberg Loop

This ride invites cyclists to explore one of the most beautiful and picturesque side valleys branching off the Inn Valley in the Tirolean Unterland. The 65km ride starts in Schwaz and leads along the flat Inn Valley to Kramsach. It is here that the main highlight begins: a beautiful section leading along the thundering Brandenberger Ache river to the idyllic village of Pinegg. After a well-deserved rest, riders return via Brandenberg down to Kramsach, where they embark on a final loop leading past the Krumsee and Reintalersee lakes via Moosen and Breitenbach all the way to the starting point in Rattenberg.

Trail description

The ride starts at the Notburgabrunnen fountain in the medieval town of Rattenberg. From here take the B171 to Niederfeld and take the first exit at the roundabout onto the L47 towards Kramsach, crossing over the Inn river and the motorway. At the next roundabout take the second exit marked "Reintaler See". After around two kilometres the route branches off left in the small village of Wittberg and heads into the Brandenberger Tal Valley.

Following the left-hand bank of the Brandenberger Ache river, the road climbs gently towards the end of the valley. Now and then you can hear the sound of the thundering water rushing through the nearby Tiefenbachklamm gorge. After passing a guesthouse, riders continue uphill through Rohregg as far as the turning at Aschau.

From here there is a short but steep descent to Pinegg, before riders climb once again on the other side back up to Winkel geht, at 961 metres above sea level the highest point on the ride. It doesn't take long to then reach Brandenberg, the largest settlement in the valley with a number of guesthouses serving food and drink.

The following descent to Kramsach is fast and straight. Stay on the eastern side of the Brandenberger Ache river and, just after the bridge, take the L211 to the Reintaler See lake. This road takes riders along a high plateau before descending once again in Breitenbach back down to the Inn river. Cross over the bridge there and continue along the Inn Cycle Path on the banks of the Inn river back to Rattenberg.
