Mountain bike & bicycle rental
On two wheels through the Walsertal
In the Damüls-Faschina-Mellau mountain world mountain bikers will find everything their hearts desire: the beautiful and challenging mountain bike region around your Mittagspitze leads you through alps and forests, on agricultural and forest roads to natural and cultural gems in the Großes Walsertal and the Bregenz Forest.
Mittagspitze is the perfect starting point for your mountain bike tours.
Well developed infrastructure for mountain bikers
Use the new Damüls hiking map to navigate through the breathtaking Valais landscape around the prominent Mittagspite in Damüls. Bregenzerwald Card holders will benefit from a free bike transport all the way to the high alpine path with the Uga-Express. A special bike rack ensures a safe transport.
You can also take your bike on all public busses in the holiday resort, like on the 43 (Au-Damüls) and the 77 (Thüringen-Damüls).
Mountain bike tours around Damüls
The mountain bike gives you access to all the trails around Damüls: whether you plan a circular tour via Oberdamüls or want to take your bike on the train to get to a more remote starting point and then cycle back to Damüls …
- If you don't have a lot of time, you will be delighted by the short Uga tour: you will only need about ½ hour for this 2.5km long and easy tour from the Uga valley station via Riedboden and Sunnegg back to your starting point.
- A bit more stamina is needed for the Hahnenkopf round tour that leads you from Faschinajoch via Hahnenkopf to the Franz-Josef Hut, where you can enjoy a break. Invigorated you can then get ready for your way back via Ischgavelsaalpe, Hahnenkopf and Franz-Josef Hut. Plan about 2.5-3 hours for this 5.3km tour.
- A cycling trip all the way to Au offers gorgeous landscapes and lots of downhill runs. Start at the Uga valley station and cycle towards Faschina. Before the tunnel take a turn left and continue on a forest road through Tiefenwald forest and continue until Hintere Bödmenalpe. The section via Gumpenalpe and Vordere Kriegbodenalpe is a bit challenging, but the following downhill trail to Schneelochalpe and via Laternser Argen to Au is worth the effort. In order to get back to Damüls take the same path back or hop on the 43 bus from Au.
Mountain biking school in the Bregenz Forest
Mountain bikers will feel in good hands at the Bregenzerwald Bike School. Here various courses are offered as well as guided biking tours through the unique region and bike camps are organised as well.

The mountain biking area stretches through the villages of Schwarzenberg-Bezau-Mellau-Au-Damüls and Schröcken.

Beginners will enjoy biking in the bike courses in Au-Schoppernau. The brand-new Bike Park Brandnertal offers various trails and courses for adventure bikers. Flow-line, free rider trails, Northshore Line and downhill: all mountain biking freaks can enjoy biking to their heart's desire.
