    Obernberger See (Brenner)

    High above the Brenner Pass – between the North Tyrolean Wipptal and South Tyrolean Eisacktal – mountainbikers will find heavenly trails with a devilish past. The loop over Sattelberg, Portjoch and Oberndorf lakes opens up the border ridge from the Wipptal valley.

    Morbid bunkers, dilapidated summit fortresses, pitch-black tunnels: the Brenner border ridge road winds – always below the ridge on the Italian side – for ten kilometers from the summit of the Sattelberg to the Portjoch. And reveals to mountain bikers interested in history some of the best preserved relics of the Second World War. Those coming from the north can conquer the border ridge between today's North and South Tyrol from the Wipptal. The start is at the small church in Vinaders (1269 m). On a wide road you first work your way up to the very well managed Sattelalm (1633 m) – and after a well-earned rest on a serpentine military path up to the summit cross on the Sattelberg (2115 m). This is where the more than ten-kilometer-long panoramic drive to the southwest begins. Always in view: the Zillertal Alps to the east. In the west, the Pflerscher Tribulaun makes one on the Matterhorn. And deep down, the rust-red band of the Brenner autobahn runs past Sterzing towards Lake Garda. The following scenic ride is one of the best you can get on the way from Innsbruck to Bolzano: a never-ending roller coaster ride on wide, well-maintained Dynamite Trails. Bikers with a good physical condition garnish it with summit rides to the Steinjoch (2185 m), Kreuzjoch (2242 m) and Hohen Lorenzenberg (2315 m). At a prominent corner below the Geierskragen (2309 m), the most spectacular part of the tour awaits you: the very exposed but easy cross-country ride to the Portjoch – and the descent down into the Obernberger Valley. This is very difficult on the first 150 depth meters (S3), because it is steep, narrow and exposed. Fahrtechnick bosses ride here, everyone else pushes for a few minutes. But soon the way becomes more and more flowing and leads in a rushing shot to the Obernberger See and back to the church of Vinaders. By the way: Since October 2020 there is a new trail from the Niederjoch down to the Obernberger valley, which is rideable for everyone
