    The 5-Valley Mountain Bike Tour connects the valleys around Bludenz in 4 stages and offers great views of the Rätikon, Verwall and Lechquellen mountains and over the Rhine Valley.

    This tour is one of the highlights of the MTB routes around Bludenz. With 4 overnight stays along the way, there is almost a little Transalp feeling. Of course, the 4 stages can also be mastered with Bludenz as the daily starting point. The tour is also designed for e-bikes: sufficient charging stations are available.

    Stage 1: Brandnertal incl. Bikepark Brandnertal with overnight stay in Bürserberg (1330 hm / with use of mountain railroad 940 hm)

    From Bludenz leisurely on paved bike path to Brand. With the support of the village railroad in the direction of Parpfienzsattel (who wants to collect altitude meters takes the freight road to the mountain station) and then enjoy the single trails in the Bikepark Brandnertal to Tschengla/Bürserberg.

    Stage 2: Walgau with overnight stay in Gerachhaus (1180 hm)

    From Tschengla/Bürserberg first down into the Walgau before it goes in Satteins on freight roads up towards Sender – constant companion: the panorama! For an overnight stay in the Gerachhaus please contact family Burtscher ( in time.

    Stage 3: Großes Walsertal with overnight stay in Bludenz (1190 hm)

    Directly from Gerachhaus partly on single trails down towards Ludesch. Collect altitude meters to Raggal or Ludescherberg and enjoyable on the Muttersberg. For technicians the famous single trail Muttersberg down to Bludenz – for connoisseurs the Güterweg.

    Alternative: Stay overnight in Raggal and experience the tour around the Breithorn for an additional day.

    Stage 4: Klostertal and Montafon (1570 hm / with use of mountain railroad 730 hm)

    From Bludenz on the Klostertal cycle path always along the river Alfenz to the valley station Sonnenkopf/Wald am Arlberg. Take the cable car up (ambitious cyclists take the goods road) and through the idyllic Wasserstubental valley into the Montafon. Past the Kristberg, with a view of the mighty mountains of the Rätikon, you descend to Vandans, where you roll along the cycle path along the Ill River back to Bludenz.

    The 5-valleys-tour is a moderately-difficult mountainbike tour and is therefore not recommended for absolute beginners. However, it is quite feasible for mountainbike beginners. Difficult trails can be bypassed if necessary and if it really doesn't work at all, then the bike can also be pushed for a short time.The tour is also designed for e-bikes, sufficient charging stations are available.
