Secure your Start Place incl. Accommodation

Book a stay incl. start place!

Those who were not lucky enough to receive a starting place in the Ötztaler Cycle Marathon in the official draw, still have the opportunity to take part in the event. When booking a package offer (minimum stay 4 - 7 nights in a category of your choice), a starting place for registered athletes is guaranteed. But you have to be fast! The package deals can be booked only on two days in March.

There is no right to a starting place for bookings made already before.


The quota of starting places for a package booking from 4+ nights is exhausted!

Due to overwhelming demand, we were able to give away another 500 start places at short notice - only in combination with accommodation bookings. This is valid for all cyclists who officially registered in February but didn't get a start place in the drawing.

Package bookings, requiring a specific minimum stay, can be made only online via our website on the below mentioned days from 8:00 am to 12:00 noon. There is a contingent of 500 start places. If start places are not sold for one period, they are added to the following on:

18 & 19 March 2019: Booking for a minimum of 7 nights (or longer)
20 & 21 March 2019: Booking for a minimum of 6 nights (or longer)
25 & 26 March 2019: Booking for a minimum of 5 nights (or longer)
27 & 28 March 2019: Booking for a minimum of 4 nights (or longer)

But don't wait too long - the limited number of start places will be sold out very quickly!

Any important details about choosing the number of start places?

You can book start places (max. 6) according to the number of registered athletes, which means you are allowed to book one start place per registered cyclist! If the number of start places does not correspond with the number of persons in the package deal (e.g. apartment for 6 person and 2 start places), then enter the following into the "MESSAGE" box: first name and last name of the athletes (according package booking) who will take part in the marathon.

  • incorrect check-in and/or check-out day: can't be changed afterwards
  • names without matching data: first name and last name and date of birth of the athlete(s) must correspond with their official registration data
  • double bookings: using the same names for more than one booking
  • a starting place was booked for an athlete who has not registered or an athlete who is not part of the package booking.
