There is no better way to get to know Val Müstair. This mountain bike tour has over 21km of trails and a 1000-meter descent through the entire valley. It starts at the top of the Ofenpass at Süsom Givè, which is easily reachable by PostBus. Bikes are also transported.

Biking up to Alp da Munt, in the heart of the ski resort of Minschuns, requires a little more pedal power. However, you can look forward to one of the most beautiful and fun flowing singletracks in the region; meandering through moorland and past pines and larches.

From Alp Champatsch, where you can take a short breather, the trail continues through the forest to the unspoilt village of Lü. From there, you'll find yourself mainly on singletrack all the way to Müstair. On the last section down to the Monastery of Müstair be prepared for a few more tight switchbacks. If preferred, it's also possible to finish the tour earlier in one of the other villages.

Local mountain bikers have voluntarily upgraded various sections of the route in order to provide an enhanced trail experience.

HOME OF TRAILS

Incidentally, this tour ends at the house in Müstair, where Danny MacAskill did a front flip in the "Home of Trails" movie.

Sehr schöne Tour. Nach dem Aufstieg am Anfang, von Lü bis nach Müstair Single-Trail. Nachtrag: Das zweite Mal sind wir bei der Alp Champatsch rechts weg, Richtung Tschierv. Das ein ganz schönes Single Trail, welcher einem kurz vor Lü wieder auf die eigentliche Route bringt. Umbedingt machen.

Das Postauto im Val Müstair nimmt Bikes mit. Kommst also zurück - Voranmeldung in dieser Jahreszeit ist sicher gut. Würde übrigens empfehlen, ab Fuldera ganz dem "Rombach-Trail", Single-Trail entlang des rechten Ufers, zu fahren - ist super schön (ohne allerdings die offizielle Route gefahren zu sein...)
