On Bike: Tauferberg

Mountain bike tour

The valley floor of Niederthai and the landslide area at the Tauferberg inspire with a variety of natural treasures.

  • Enjoy the view of the impressive Ötztal glaciers in a high alpine mountain landscape.
  • The flower-rich meadows around Niederthai were used as arable land for the cultivation of potatoes, flax and grain until the 20th century.
  • The character of the landscape is shaped by post-glacial landslides. The Stuibenfall was formed as a result of the Köfelser landslide, the largest in Austria.
  • At the Mauslasee you can find ferns and horsetails and observe dragonflies, grass frogs and mountain newts.
  • Pines, spruces, stone pines and larches accompany you on this route with a mystical ending at the last stretch through a forest.
