Ötztal Passes Pass

End of May to mid-October 2023

Get your Ötztal Passes Pass and enjoy the endless uphill and downhill stretches of the original Ötztaler Cycle Marathon route. When? At any time! Everyone can start individually between end of May to mid-October 2023 (until the winter closure of the Timmelsjoch high alpine road). The Ötztal Passes Pass mission is not a cycling race. There is no competition or scoring - enjoyment (taking part in the event) is most important. A highly coveted starting place including accommodation for the Ötztaler Cycle Marathon 2024 will be raffled among all finishers.

Collect a stamp on each Alpine pass (Kühtai, Brenner, Jaufen Pass, Timmelsjoch) and get an Ötztaler Cycle Marathon goodie on presentation of the full stamp pass.

Stop by the quaint inns, experience (South) Tirolean hospitality & get advice from real professionals at the local sports shops. In this way you also support the loyal cycling family so that you can spend many pleasant hours on our routes also in the future.

This is how it works:

  1. First register free of charge HERE and enter your data details.
  2. Print out your Ötztal Passes Pass.
    TIP: It's recommended to use a laser printer and a protective cover. In the Sölden Tourist Office (MON-SAT 8 am - 6 pm & SUN 9 am - 12 noon | 3 pm - 6 pm) the Pass can be printed out if necessary.
  3. Cycle along the original Ötztaler Cycle Marathon route and collect a stamp at each mountain pass. All details about checkpoints and route map can be found HERE.
  4. After finishing the tour, get your finisher stamp and Ötztaler Cycle Marathon Goodie from the Sölden Tourist Office. (Only upon personal presentation of your full stamp pass. Each person can participate only once.)

* Mandatory field

The country's applicable road traffic regulations must be observed without exception. Always wear an approved helmet on your Ötztaler Passes round. Behave in an environmental-friendly manner and be fair to others in a sporty and respectful way. Adapt your cycling to the respective situation on the road (traffic volume, traffic/road regulations etc.)!

Dangerous situations, for example, could arise due to ...

  • reaching high speeds
  • cycling and/or concentration errors due to fatigue or exertion
  • influence of slippery asphalt and - not least due to the high altitude - sometimes poor road conditions
  • impossibility of securing all danger points next to the road along the entire cycling route
  • impossibility of securing all possible crash sites and danger of falling spots in connection with the natural structure of the course (mountain passes stretching up to 2508 m)
  • extreme Alpine weather conditions, such as heavy rain, snow, fog etc.
  • the route traveling in part through wildlife and grazing areas, where you must always watch out for unattended grazing cattle (for example cows, horses or sheep) as well as wild animals or unleashed pets standing on the road all of a sudden - they may also leave dirt there unexpectedly
