Route: Info office Seefeld - Neuleutasch - Weidach - Gaistal - Salzbach car park - Gaistalalm
The tour through the Gaistal is a dream for all those who love gravel biking. With just the right mix of fast asphalt, the most beautiful gravel and even more beautiful views, you ride from Seefeld through the picturesque Gaistal, where numerous refreshment stops await connoisseurs.
The start of the gravel bike tour into the Gaistal is at the Seefeld Information Center right next to the train station. From there you cycle out of Seefeld in the direction of Leutasch, cycle a short distance off the road on small paths and finally either on asphalt or gravel off the road through the district of Neuleutasch. Now it goes downhill for a short distance until you arrive in Weidach in Leutasch. Here you keep to the left in a westerly direction and now ride up the sunny valley with the most beautiful views of the Hohe Munde always along the Leutascher Ache. Also on this section you can decide whether you prefer to ride on fast asphalt or in the shady forest on gravel. After a few kilometers, which are only slightly uphill, you continue straight on in the direction of Gaistal. Continue slightly uphill until you reach the entrance to the beautiful valley, which is known as an alpine paradise.
Passing the parking lot, you finally turn into the valley and overcome a few more meters of altitude, but they are not too demanding. Here, too, you ride on the forest road always along the Leutascher Ache, while you have the Hohe Munde and the Mieminger Kette on the left and the impressive peaks of the Wetterstein mountains on the right. In gentle ups and downs, the trail leads to the Gaistalalm. Here the spacious sun terrace or the cozy parlor invite you to stop and enjoy the best Tyrolean food and warm hospitality. Return via the same path.
Tip: From the Leutasch district of Weidach, you always ride along the Leutascher Ache, whose crystal-clear waters always tempt you to take a break. At numerous beautiful spots you will find access to the shore, where you like to linger for a long time, especially on hot days. At the Salzbach parking lot at the entrance to the Gaistal, you can also visit the newly built Kneipp facility and refresh your feet. Those who still have fit legs after the Gaistalalm can continue on to the Tillfussalm and even to the Seebensee. Those who would rather shorten the tour or include another enjoyable stop can turn off further ahead in the Gaistal to the Hämmermoosalm.
