The Region

From the Ötztal Valley through the Inntal Valley to Innsbruck and back

The Ötztal valley with its 65 kilometres in length and its five municipalities is not only known for its scenic beauty and cultural richness but also for its hospitable people. The Ötztal Classic takes you on the most beautiful routes, past fascinating mountains, from about 800 metres above sea level in Oetz to 2,175 metres at the Top Mountain Crosspoint in Hochgurgl. Of course, it is also necessary to manage the way back to Oetz. Finally, the route leads through the Inntal valley to the capital city Innsbruck and back via the Abbey Stams.

In this fantastic Tyrolean setting, the joy of driving and the pleasure are in the centre of the event.
