From Landeck via Zams and Schönwies, the Inntal cycle path leads to the mouth of the Gurgltal (Imst) into the Inntal. There the Inntal cycle path and the Jakobsweg (Way of St. James) lead very steeply and high up to the Karrer heights.

The Inn after Imst

As an alternative, there is a new cycle path next to the Westbahn railway line. It starts at the Imst-Pitztal railway station and leads to Roppen. There is also a small climb to Waldele to conquer. From Roppen, the Inntal cycle path then runs more or less alongside the motorway, which is half the fun. I therefore rode on side roads through the villages of Ötzbruck, Ötztal-Bahnhof and Haiming, only to cycle back along the Inntal cycle path to Stams.


In the distance you can see Roppen

Maria Locherboden Mariahilf Locherboden Stams

At the top of the mountain is the pilgrimage church of Maria Locherboden. An image of Mary Help of Christians is venerated there. A road leads up near Mötz.

Opposite, at the foot of the mountain, you can see the Cistercian monastery of Stams and the Stamser Bach stream..
