Please note that from May 11, 2020 to November 27, 2020 due to the construction of a gallery, the L76 - Landecker Straße between Fließ & Landeck - is closed. Please use the bypass through the Landeck tunnel. This is free of vignettes at this time - but be careful, please only use the Zams motorway exit if you are coming from the main road towards Imst or Arlberg. If you drive directly into the Landeck tunnel from the direction of Imst, a Vigniette is required!
In order to counteract the noise pollution for the local population in the Imst & Reutte districts a little, the state of Tyrol recently imposed driving bans on a small part of the routes in the Imst and Reutte districts. Due to considerable noise pollution, from June 10th to October 31st 2020 driving bans for particularly loud motorbikes parking noise> 95 dB (A) will be issued on a small part of the road network to protect the people who live there.
Of course, motorcyclists are very welcome in Tyrol - the driving ban affects only 5.6% of the entire national road network and approx. 7% of the vehicles permitted. Here you will find all information about the restrictions and driving bans.
- Many motorcycle tours are still available without restrictions - you can find an overview on our motorcycle page.
- Selected tours for motorcycles with over 95 dB (A)
Please be sure to note the road block on the pilgrimage route from Kauns to Kaltenbrunn or from Kaunerberg to Kaltenbrunn. The path will be cleared or renovated by the HTB company in the next few weeks. Under no circumstances may the path be followed in the next few weeks - there is a DANGER TO LIFE!
Section of Unterfalpetan -Oberfalpetan water trail
The section of the watertrail from Unterfalpetan to Oberfalpetan (in the Schöntalwald area) is also closed due to rockfall. Oberfalpetan can only be reached via the Wiesenhof.
Due to construction work on torrent and avalanche control, the Thomas-Penz-Höhenweg from Langetsberg to Kehm is closed all summer 2020 from Monday to Friday. The barrier affects all forest roads in this area - including the valley hiking trail from Unterhäuser (Jägerkapelle) to Vergötschen. Please note the barriers and signs.
Please notice that all the breacking-ups depend from the development of the austrian infection numbers! We are confident that we go out strengthened from this crisis and we look forward to experiencing and enjoying the unique mountain and cultural landscape of the Kaunertal Nature Park and Glacier Region with you!
See you soon in Kaunertal - and stay healthy!
Explore nature on our hikes
In the Kaunertal we are at an altitude of 1,287 m. Since the natural landscape of the Kaunertal extends over some alpine zones, it is possible that not all hiking trails are open at the beginning of the summer season. Here we have put together a small selection of possible hikes from May 2020.
On site, we are happy to put together other excursion destinations and hiking opportunities according to your wishes. Our new climate hiking guide includes the right tour for the right weather. Ask for it!
