The MTB Tour Grabneralm offers almost everything that the mountain heart is seeking. Comfortable cruising on a flat road, beautiful bike path along the Enns river, a short meadow, a technically and physically very challenging forest road (about 1 kilometers long) - which one can drive around, long forest roads with standard 10% gradient, very good vantage points, beautiful Gesäuse mountains, Grabneralm with a very good hut at the peak of the Mountain Tour, easy and more challenging descents to Weng in Gesäuse - a beautiful, idyllic Alpine village and the market town Admont a worth-cost starting point and destination of this magnificent mountain bike ride in the Styrian Enns valley.

A very good start to this MTB Tour of the Grabneralm is Admont. Because of the good parking facilities in Admont and warming up before the hard climbs. You'll pass the tennis court in Admont, and then follow the bike path until Weng im Gesäuse. The first kilometers are a asphalted bike path to Weng im Gesaeuse and is followed by a fine gravel, which leads you on a bike bridge and an underpass, according to Weng im Gesäuse. The paved road to Kletzenberg in Weng im Gesäuse is 2.5 kilometers long and has an average gradient of 9.3%. After a short, flat section you'll reach the "Buchauersattel" and the signposted mountain bike route to Grabneralm. The first kilometer (in the vertical meters profile and Google Map shown in red) of MTB Tour of the Grabneralm is technically and physically very demanding. The old forest road to Grabneralm house is wide, but has an average gradient of 16 percent. Since there are on the bumpy road many large stones, one has to take on the mountain bike permanently the second gear. Otherwise you will hang on one of the stones below the leaves. To avoid possible falling over you need your feet can take out of the pedals quickly. But if that is too strenuous, you can bypass the first part of the official mountain bike tour Grabneralm. Approximately 500m to the east after the Buchauersattel the new forest begins to Grabneralm. This forest road have I also selected for the departure - see Google Map.

At Kilometer 8 the two paths combine again, and on the new forest road you reach, without further technical difficulties, after 3.6 kilometers and an average of 10% slope the Grabneralm house. There different sections with shadow, sun and beautiful view points. By the Grabneralm house you have a wonderful view of the mountains in the Gesaeuse and the Grabnerstein behind. The Grabneralm (1395m) lies on the eastern foothills of the "Haller Mauern" (walls) and only a few miles west of the mountain in Gesäuse. The Grabneralm is known as the balcony of the Gesäuse mountains. From early May to late October is the Grabneralm consistently managed, offers a good kitchen and 45 beds (15 beds and 30 bed storage bins).

The same forest road you are driving back to the Buchauersattel, where you can again choose between the two different difficulty forest roads. Then you travel about 1 km towards Admont. After that is on the right, a mountain bike path witch is signed as Alpentour Austria. In Weng im Gesäuse you turn at Km 19 from to the left towards "Gesäuseeingang". At km 22 you reach at the Enns bridge the next wonderful vantage point on the MTB Tour. Here you should take a break because of the unique landscape. In addition, have been prepared by the staff of the National Gesaeuse some very interesting display boards on which one learns more about the history, flora, fauna and geology of the Gesäuse.

Back to Admont you can certainly travel like on this tour through the Gesäuse highway, or on the Ennstal bike path about Weng im Gesäuse. Depending on your condition and how long you want to stay at the beautiful view points, should be planned for the mountain bike tour Grabneralm approximately 2 to 4 hours. Since the forest road is being cleared in the final meters after snowy winters, this tour is open for mountain bikers and walkers at the beginning of May. The images on this MTB Tour are from the second week of May 2009th Therefore, in the pictures on the Grabneralm Mountainbiketour still see a lot of snow and the trees and lawns contribute a little bare. Alternative to the big mountain bike lap you can start the MTB Tour of the Grabneralm also from Buchauersattel or in Weng im Gesäuse, where there are also some parking spaces.
