MOUNTAIN LIFTS & BICYCLE TRANSPORT
UP TO LOFTY HEIGHTSThroughout Ötztal we have created suitable infrastructures that make it as easy (and comfortable) as possible for all mountain bikers and cyclists. Throughout the valley, our public bus lines transport bicycles for free at 15 bus stops. Also the summer mountain lifts - between Oetz, the Bike Republic Sölden and Obergurgl-Hochgurgl - take you and your bicycle up to the trails and lines quickly and in the most comfy way.
BICYCLE TRANSPORT BY ÖTZTAL'S MOUNTAIN LIFTS

Floating to the top, getting off, ready for the superb trails: Between Oetz and the rear end of the valley in Obergurgl-Hochgurgl our state-of-the-art mountain lifts take you (and your bicycle) to the mountain tops in the most uncomplicated and comfortable way. In the Bike Republic Sölden the innovative transport system on Langegg chairlift, unique in all Austria, takes you directly to the Ollweite Line.

BUS SERVICE: FREE BICYCLE TRANSPORT
Please get on!
As the very first holiday region in Tirol, Ötztal offers free bicycle transport (for holders of a valid bus ticket) in all public bus lines. On the Imst/Haiming-Obergurgl (and return) line the public buses are equipped with special bicycle trailers. The 15 bus stops, where safe loading and unloading is possible, are marked with a special bicycle symbol. Advance reservation is recommended for larger groups.
All bikers aboard!
Please note the special bicycle bus stops marked with a bicycle symbol on the "Ötztal Line" (Haiming/Imst - Obergurgl). At these selected bus stops safe loading and unloading of bicycles is guaranteed. Also e-bikes are transported on the marked buses equipped with special bicycle trailers. Important: Due to the heavy weight of e-bikes, the passengers themselves are responsible for loading and unloading their bicycles and not the bus driver. Therefore, no liability is accepted for any damage of bicycles on the part of the transport company.
Bicycle transport is free of charge with a valid bus ticket!

Special family tip:
Start your cycling tour in Sölden, rolling slightly downhill in the direction of Längenfeld. Always follow the "Ötztal Cycle Trail" (11) signs starting at Freizeit Arena. Newly built road overpasses and underpasses take you safely to Längenfeld - off the busy main road. A stop at the Huben Fun Park or a visit to the Local Heritage & Outdoor Museum in Längenfeld are definitely a great idea. A wonderful family cycle tour suitable for all ages and preferences!
Return to Sölden effortlessly by public bus as most lines are equipped with special bicycle trailers. At the marked bicycle bus stops (for example bus stop "Edelweiß/Abzw. Gries" or bus stop "Aqua Dome" in Längenfeld) safe loading and unloading of bicycles and e-bikes is guaranteed. Bicycle transport on public bus lines is free of charge for holders of a valid bus ticket!
