"Brixen is more than just the Plose! Countless singletrail jewels are also hidden west of the Eisack." This is what Alex Resch, mountainbike guide and head of the Hotel Krone in the heart of the idyllic old town, says. One of his tips: from the cathedral square, don't head east towards Plose, but west, up into the Sarntal Alps. A dream destination: the Radlsee with the hut of the same name. The hut is enthroned in a top location high above the Eisack valley. Just opposite, the Plose mountain hut greets you. Those who still feel like enjoying a 360-degree panorama after a stop for refreshments can climb 150 meters to the Königsanger summit cross (2436 meters above sea level), which is visible from afar. At the top of the panorama table South Tyrol shows itself from its most beautiful side: Plose, Monte Cristallo, Sciliar, Sassolungo and Sassolungo, Marmolada and, and, and.
The 2000-meter altitude lap starts at the Cathedral Square in Brixen. You roll past the tourist information office in a westerly direction and follow path number 8 to Tils. Follow the road uphill to Gereuth and turn left onto the gravel road number 9. Passing Stilums, one turns to Oberschnauders and follows the marking 17A on the right to the parking lot at the Garner Wetterkreuz. From here you take trail number 10, later trail number 14A to Brugger Schupfe. From here follow trail nr. 14 to Munschegg and trail nr. 10 to Radlsee. The Radlsee hut is open from the end of May to the end of October and offers the best places to stop for a bite to eat and overnight stays and a panorama of the finest. After the obligatory stop on the sun terrace, the great trail number 8, a sometimes S2 single trail with some blocked S3 sections, leads downhill. You meet a road and follow it downhill. Over the Pfeffersberg you can get back to Tils via paths number 8 and 8A. At the end of Tils follow the markings number 8-10 down to Eisack and roll back to the finish in Brixen on the familiar path.
- If you want to shorten the ascent with a shuttle, you can drive up by car to the parking lot just above Garn.
- E-mountainbikers need a spare battery due to the many meters of altitude difference.
- At the turn-off above the Glanger Kas Alm there is a bike ban sign since 2020. This concerns the trail up to the Radlsee hut, where the bike has to be pushed anyway.
