Description

Among cyclists the "https://www.tannheimertal.com/"Tannheimer Tal has been known for a long time, because in 2001 the Austrian Cycle Tour's troop went through the valley.

In 2005, the cycling pros of the Bavarian Tour came to Tyrol for the opening stage of the tour and were rewarded with the Tannheimer Tal mountain classification and the Jungholz mountain classification.

And even professionals noticed the scenic charms of the "probably most beautiful high valley in Europe".

Rich green meadows, the Haldensee lake and a beautiful mountain scenery accompanied the cycling pros on their competition kilometres.

And so the Tannheimer Tal has also been praised as an ideal region for targeted training or extended tours.

"The Tannheimer Tal is an ideal starting point for long racing bike tours to the surrounding regions such as Lake Constance or the Arlberg", says Michael Keller, Managing Director of the "https://www.tannheimertal.com/" Tourism Association Tannheimer Tal and former mountain bike coach of Austria.

In addition to the ideal starting point, cyclists will find a wide range of accommodation in the Tannheimer Tal.
