    The Schlern high above the Eisack valley is a real gem among the Dolomite peaks – and a well-known destination for mountainbikers. The route offers spectacular Dolomite scenery and a demanding and exceptional singletrail descent.

    The start of the Schlern tour is easy: at the beginning you take the cable car from Seis up to the Seiser Alm. Afterwards you climb up on small roads, leave the lovely plateau behind you and after a short descent you fight your way up towards Mahlknechtjoch. Instead of the saddle itself you turn right a little before and reach the very steep ascent to the Tierser Alpl. The gravel road is mercilessly steep, even very fit mountainbikers reach their limits here. Usually you push here a little bit, but then you have earned the break in the extraordinary Rifugio in front of a fantastic scenery. That would have been it with gravel roads, the rest of the tour leads (almost completely) on singletrails. Immediately after the Rifugio we start a long descent, but soon the bike will be on our shoulders. On a wonderful path you climb on foot up to the ridge of the Schlern. This carrying passage is the reason why the tour should not be undertaken with an e-mountainbike. Once you reach the ridge, the downhill fun begins. The challenging but good to ride path leads (with a short counter-climb) to the Schlernhaus hut and from there with the sign "Prügelsteig" steep and winding down into the Schlembach gorge. Far down in the gorge, the path is laid out in an extraordinary construction method of wooden beating into the rocks. All in all: The descent is steep, slippery and challenging – not for beginners! Finally you reach a gravel road at the exit of the gorge, follow it for a while and a little later turn left into the trail to the Huber Weiher and further on to the Völser Weiher. For the final stretch back up to Seis there is another wonderful singletrail – an excellent conclusion to an impressive and demanding Dolomite classic.


    • There are wooden boards on the Schlern with a banning of bikes. According to local mountainbikers, these have been there for a long time, are not official and are therefore not considered. The Schlern tour in this variant is one of their standard routes.
    • In summer: Take bathing clothes with you. The Völser Weiher offers a super opportunity for refreshment in the cool water.
