Profile Brandnertal

The ascent from Bludenz through the Brandnertal leads over a cul-de-sac that ends at the parking lot of the Lünerseebahn and has a splendid last part. This part begins after cycling more than 11 kilometers at the end of the build-up area of Brand. Here the road narrows and the mountains become particularly beautiful. Lush green dominates the valley while higher up and in front of the cyclist the view of the Schesaplana, with 2965 meters the highest peak of the Rätikon, unfolds. Two kilometers after Brand, the road turns left so other peaks become visible. This last part of the climb is steep. Over a distance of 5.5 kilometers 491 meters of altitude are gained (on average 8.9%). The steepest kilometer (10.9%) lies just after Brand while the steepest 250 meter section (14%) has to be cycled on the parking lot at the destination. The first two parts of the ride are less exciting. The first part, starting at the Brandnertal exit of the A14, is moderately steep (5 kilometers with a slope of 5-9%) whereas the middle part (6.5 kilometers) is easy (-1 to 6%).
