Vorarlberg, located in the far west of Austria, impresses with its breathtaking landscapes, the high alpine and yet touristy mountain passes, as well as imposing reservoirs, raging rivers and deep gorges.
The Klostertal is the ideal starting point for numerous motorcycle tours. The winding alpine passes and mountain roads in and around Vorarlberg can be mastered as round trips in one day each. Several rides, each blessed with curves, great panoramic roads like the Silvretta-Hochalpenstrasse, Arlbergpass or Faschinajoch as well as cross-border motorcycle experiences make every biker’s heart beat faster.
Over hills, ramps, stones, stairs and other exciting obstacles – on a motorcycle.
The first trial course in Vorarlberg could not be more beautifully located: in the middle of the mountain world of the Arlberg at the foot of the Arlberg Pass: in Stuben am Arlberg. For children from 4 years. For more information, visit https://e-trial-arlberg.at
Motorcycle - route tips
Silvretta High Alpine Road
Route length approx. 170 km (Attention: toll!)
From Dalaas/Wald am Arlberg we start towards Landeck in Tyrol. Along the S16 (Paznauntal junction) through the towns of Kappl, Ischgl to Galtür. Via the Silvretta high alpine road, the journey then continues through the Montafon (Gaschurn and Schruns) to Bludenz. From there back to Dalaas/Wald.
Tour through the Lech Valley
Route length: approx. 150 km (Hahntenjoch) or 190 km (Fernpass)
From Dalaas/Wald over the Arlbergpass and the Flexenpass to Lech, Warth. In Warth turn right in the direction of Steeg. Through the Lechtal valley, the route then leads either via Reutte and the Fernpass to Imst. From there via the Arlbergpass back to Stuben am Arlberg – or, and this is our recommendation, as there is more traffic on the Fernpass in summer, turn right in Elmen towards Hahntenjoch. Over the Hahntenjoch it then goes in the direction of Imst and from there back to Dalaas/Wald.
Route length: approx. 190 km
From Dalaas/Wald over the Arlberg Pass and Flexen Pass via Zürs and Lech am Arlberg to Warth. In Warth continue in the direction of Hochtannberg and then along the Bregenzerwaldstraße to Dornbirn. In Dornbirn you can then decide whether you want to return to Klostertal or make a detour to Lake Constance. You can then either take the highway home (bland) or simply return the tour in the opposite direction.
Small Bregenzerwald Tour
Route length: approx. 110 km. From Dalaas/Wald via Zürs and Lech to Warth. In Warth continue in the direction of Hochtannberg and then along the Bregenzerwaldstraße to Au. In Au turn left towards Damüls and via Fontanella and the Faschinajoch to Bludenz. From Bludenz we then return to the Klostertal valley.
Timmelsjoch – Merano – Klostertal Valley
Route length: approx. 300 km (Attention: toll!)
