Mountain biking on the Hochkönig

Paradise for mountain bikers

Paradise for mountain bikers: Hochkönig

Around the Hochkönig you can choose from 24 different mountain bike tours. According to what you are looking for and your stamina you can start right at your hotel. There are sheltered spaces for your mountain bike at the hotel. If you decide to take an e-mountain bike you will benefit from the well-developed network of e-bike charging stations around the Hochkönig.

During a long breakfast in the bright Bergheimat Restaurant you can fill your belly for the day's adventures. Step outside of the hotel and feel the dewy mountain air and when the sun is shining as well, then it's bound to be a good day. Take the mountain bike out and start your biking tour right at the hotel at 1,200 metres above sea level.

At the BK Bike in Mühlbach you can borrow mountain bike and e-bikes; show your Hochkönig Card and get a discount. On request you can have the bike delivered to the hotel.
