The queen's stage for all mountain bike aficionados in Sölden, leading up to the eternal ice of Rettenbach Glacier at 2800 m above sea level.
Even the key features of this challenging mountain bike tour are quite impressing: 32 kilometers (6.5 km above 2500 m) and 1600 meters of altitude gain! For sure, this is one of the valley's most demanding routes. From Freizeit Arena you follow the federal road towards the upper valley, turn right at the BP gas station after approx. 1 km. The climbing road takes you through the hamlets of Außerwald and Innerwald to the Glacier Road. Here you start the almost endless climb on the Ötztal Glacier Road, following the tracks of highly renowned cycling events like the queen's stage of the Tour de Suisse and Deutschland Tour. Also for the Pros it is a truly unique challenge to conquer 1500 altitude meters in a row. The highest point is the car park of Rettenbach Glacier at 2800 m - Europe's highest road point! The same road takes you back to Freizeit Arena, a great downhill ride.
Alternatively, also other single trails lead down to Sölden.
