    Eisjöchl mit Stettiner Hütte

    The Eisjöchl is one of the great mountainbike classics in South Tyrol. The reason for this is the extraordinary trail: the ascent is completely rideable, the descent to Pfelders then a work of art in terms of trail construction. A passage that belongs in the bucket list of every mountainbiker.

    The ascent from Naturns up to Eisjöchl is merciless: Almost 2400 meters of altitude have to be overcome in one go. This makes the route one of the longest mountainbike climbs in the alps. The start of the tour is also not particularly exhilarating: the inevitable tunnel from Naturns up into the Schnals Valley is certainly not a highlight for cyclists. Afterwards you follow the road uphill and turn right at the height of Karthaus into the Pfossen Valley. This (asphalted) road is extremely steep and winds its way up to Vorderkaser. Steep remains undiminished, but the ground consists of gravel. The wonderfully idyllic Pfossental opens up now and offers an excellent backdrop. The next change takes place at the Eishof: The upcoming 800 meters of altitude difference up to the Eisjöchl lead over a singletrail. Normally this means: push and carry. Nothing there! The trail is so wonderfully built that it is rideable. Some of the stone slabs have been laid out like parquet flooring, making the trail an extraordinary ascent experience. Only the very last meters up to Eisjöchl the bike has to be pushed a few more meters. Directly behind the Eisjöchl is the Stettinger hut as an ideal opportunity for refreshment before the descent. This leads down into the Pfelderer Valley, sometimes a bit rumpy, but especially impressive after the lake plateau: In countless, well rideable serpentines, a path has been laid out here in the steepest way possible. A feast for the eyes and a riding fun maker unparalleled. In Pfelders, the attractive part of the Eisjöchl tour has been completed, now the long way back towards Meran follows. This leads in a mix of road, gravel paths and singletrail sections to St. Leonhard in the Passeier Valley. From here you follow the cycle path along the river Passer downstream to Merano for almost twenty kilometers and finally take the train back to Naturns.


    • Because of the long ascent, the route is well suited for e-muontainbikes, but because of the long ascent a second battery must be carried. A battery charge is not sufficient for the entire ascent, even with economical riding.
    • On the train from Merano to Naturns, bicycle transport is not possible between 9 and 13 o'clock and between 15 and 17.30 o'clock (as of summer 2020).
