Schwarzseestrae | Reith The first choice for all tours in a northerly direction is the Schwarzseestrae. From Reith take the standard route via Rerobichl to St. Johann in Tirol. In a westerly direction, Ellmau and Kufstein can be reached either via Stanglwirt | Going or the Astberg mountain classification. Brixental bike path For all tours in a westerly direction, the beautiful Brixental bike path is recommended. On this route Wrgl and the Zillertal can be reached without the stress of traffic. Rmerweg The route along the Rmerweg takes you through fantastic mountain scenery, with the Wilder Kaiser an absolute eye catcher. Passing through some of the most beautiful parts of Kitzbhel, past magnificent old farm houses, you encounter the first L ascent! Pass-Thurn-Strae The Pass-Thurn-Strae leads road cyclists towards Mittersill and Pinzgau. This route is essential for getting to the Groglockner, otherwise a ride back to Kitzbhel is recommended because of the volume of traffic.

mingtal and along the side road to St. Ulrich, then follow the PillerseeLandesstrae to Waidring. After about 8 km on the B178 towards St. Johann (the cycle path is very winding; it is not worth taking!) in Erpfendorf (Steinbacher insulation factory) turn right onto the state road towards Kssen.

From here return to Kitzbhel through Weitau | Sperten, Oberndorf and then Rerobichl to Reith and along the Schwarzseestrae. (see Kitzbhel Circuit No. 1).

Ride from the centre of Kitzbhel along the Rmerweg in a northerly direction and turn off at the farm Hglern onto the Kitzbhler Horn panoramic road. After a short while you come to the original start (791 m) of the Kitzbheler Horn Mountain Bike Race. It is a good idea to take a short break here, have a look at the information board and enjoy a refreshing drink. 875 m ascent over 7.1 km on the steepest bike mountain in Austria follows. The ascent gradient is 12.5 % on average, peaking at 22.3 %. After the first toll gate (1,013 m) follow the first ramp. Conserve your energy

until the Goinger Alm (1,424 m) as it is here where the crucial part begins. Over 1 km with a constant ascent gradient from 16 to 22.3 %, subsequently levelling out in the last of the altogether 18 curves. The goal is the Alpenhaus (1,666 m) on the Kitzbheler Horn. Route record holder Thomas Rohregger: the Kitzbheler Horn is truly the Streif of cycle sport! There are practically no rest opportunities. You have to go full power from start to finish! Incidentally, Tommys racing gear ratio on the Horn is 39|27, and his best time is 28 minutes 24 seconds.

Kitzbheler Horn - 22,3 %.


Mythos Kitzbheler Horn

The steepest bike mountain in Austria.


The Kitzbheler Horn is one of the most difficult ascents in international cycling comparable with Alpe dHuez!, says Tyrolean cycling legend, Georg Totschnig, on the climb to the Alpenhaus.

Every year about 10,000 hobby cyclists storm the mountain, which in Austria rivals only the Groglockner in terms of popularity. With the help of permanently installed timekeeping devices, riders can record their times on an annual ranking list as part of the Krone KitzHorn Challenge.

The myth of the Kitzbheler Horn.


The Kitbheler Horn became legendary in cycling during the 1970s and 1980s thanks to international mountain bike racing (Europes Greatest Hill Climb Grand Prix). In those days the Horn was considered the most difficult mountain test in Europe. Kitzbhels local mountain has been included in the Austrian cycling circuit every year since 2000.

Over the decades, international greats such as Cadel Evans (AUS), Lucien van Impe (BEL), Beat Breu (SUI), Riccardo Ricco (ITA), Wolfgang Steinmayr (AUT) and Georg Totschnig (AUT) have all earned a place on the winners list. The route record-holder, Thomas Rohregger, counts the Kitzbheler Horn as one of the top 3 most difficult mountains in international cycling. Legendary Tyrolean cyclist, Wolfgang Steinmayr, also cherishes the visual charm of the Horn. There exist but very few difficult mountain routes of this kind in international professional cycling with such a spectacular setting.

Climbing Highlights

1 Kitzbheler Horn (1,666 m) and the summit (1,996 m) Austrias steepest bike mountain, a genuine cult mountain among cyclists. Unrivalled in steepness - both in maximum (22.3 %) and average gradients (12.5 %). Only a few other mountains around the world can surpass the toughness of the Horn. 2 Groglockner (2,506 m) Both the mountain peaks and mountain passes are true emblems of Austria. Every road cyclist must ride this mountain at least once in their life. An agreeable ascent gradient of 10 %, in comparison to the Kitzbheler Horn. 3 Steinplatte (1,666 m) A serious hill-climb, resembling the Kitzbheler Horn in terms of distance and gradient. 4 Ochsalm (1,470 m) A lovely mountain road in the Kitzbhel ski region, passing wonderful mountain pastures. 5 Enzinger Boden (1,480 m) and the Tauernmoos reservoir (2,104 m) A ride into the glacial world. A secret adventure: the unkempt but secluded road to Tauernmoos! 6 Loferer Alm (1,425 m) A typical ski region access road. A tough hill climb! 7 Griesner Alm (1,024 m) A wonderfully mellow mountain road, dignified by cycle races each year. 8 Hirschbichlpass (1,183 m) An unrivalled pass with ascent gradients of up to 30 %! The Hirschbichlpass can only be ridden out of the saddle. You couldnt help but do a wheelie if you remained seated. There is nothing more to say about this pass ;-). 9 Winklmoos-Alm (1,160 m) Ski region approach road to Rosi Mittermaiers homeland. 10 Filzensattel (1,290 m) and Dientner Sattel (1,370 m) Two delightful passes at the foot of the Hochknig.
