Blauherd-Täsch Bike Tour (Nr. 4)

This route is for experienced mountain bikers. The trail is relatively easy to start with, but quickly becomes challenging. You’ll be rewarded with cool single trails and incredible views of the mountains.

The cable cars take you up to Blauherd. The trail to Tufteren heads left away from Blauherd station and is initially quite flat. It then becomes more technical and there are some sharp corners to manage. It continues like this until you get past Tufteren. It is well worth stopping occasionally and taking in the amazing views of the Matterhorn, Mettelhorn and Weisshorn.

At Tufteren, the trail continues over the famous Europaweg. On the Höhenweg heading towards Täschalp, there are some sections when you'll need to pedal a bit. Some points on the Europaweg are also exposed and it is recommended that you get off your bike and push.

When you reach ‘Wenige’, the trail heads away from the Europaweg and down a gravel path towards Blasboden. There is a stream here where you can fill up your water bottles.

Afterwards the route follows the gravel road through the larch forrest and heads back to Täsch.

Additional information and recommendations are available from the guest information centre on Bahnhofplatz (by the railway station).

Bike-Tour Blauherd-Täsch (Nr. 4)

Diese Tour ist für geübte Mountainbiker. Der Weg beginnt zwar relativ einfach, wird aber schnell anspruchsvoll. Belohnt wird man mit coolen Singletrails und unglaublichen Aussichten auf das Bergpanorama.

Mit den Bergbahnen geht es hoch bis Blauherd. Der Trail nach Tufteren führt links von der Station Blauherd weg. Der Weg nach Tufteren ist vorerst eher flach. Anschliessend wird es technischer und es gilt, einige enge Kurven zu meistern. So wechselt es sich bis nach Tufteren ab. Es lohnt sich, zwischendurch anzuhalten und sich die grandiose Aussicht auf das Matterhorn, Mettelhorn und Weisshorn anzusehen.

Bei Tufteren führt der Weg weiter über den bekannten Europaweg. Auf dem Höhenweg Richtung Täschalp gibt es gewisse Stellen, an welchen man ein bisschen in die Pedale treten muss. Zudem sind gewisse Stellen auf dem Europaweg exponiert und es wird empfohlen, abzusteigen und das Bike zu schieben.

Auf der Höhe «Wenige» geht es weg vom Europaweg und auf der Kiesstrasse Richtung Blasboden hinunter. Hier findet man einen Brunnen, um leere Trinkflaschen zu füllen. Anschliessend führt der Weg auf der Forststrasse weiter durch den Lärchenwald und zurück nach Täsch.

Zusätzliche Informationen und Empfehlungen sind im Gäste-Informationscenter am Bahnhofplatz erhältlich.

Itinéraire VTT Blauherd-Täsch (Nr. 4)

Cet itinéraire est réservé aux vététistes expérimentés. Le parcours est relativement facile au début, mais s’intensifie rapidement. Vos efforts seront récompensés par des singles trails fun et une vue imprenable sur le paysage montagneux.

Les téléphériques vous emmènent jusqu’à Blauherd. Le sentier menant à Tufteren part sur la gauche de la station Blauherd. Le chemin qui mène à Tufteren est d’abord plutôt plat pour devenir ensuite plus technique. On y trouve alors quelques virages serrés difficiles. Le tout s’alterne ainsi jusqu’à Tufteren. N’oubliez pas de vous arrêter de temps en temps pour profiter des magnifiques vues sur le Cervin, le Mettelhorn et le Weisshorn.

À Tufteren, le sentier continue sur le célèbre Chemin de l’Europe (Europaweg). Sur le Höhenweg en direction de Täschalp, vous devrez à certains endroits appuyer un peu plus sur les pédales. Certains passages du Chemin de l’Europe longent de plus des précipices, il est donc recommandé de descendre de son vélo et de marcher.

À la hauteur de «Wenige», on quitte le Chemin de l’Europe pour prendre un chemin de gravier qui descend à Blasboden. Vous y trouverez une fontaine pour remplir vos gourdes. Puis le chemin continue sur la route de gravier à travers la forêt de mélèzes jusqu'à Täsch

Informations complémentaires et conseils sont disponibles au guichet d'informations, sur la place de la gare.
