Biking needs „Good Ways“ – today and in the future. Therefore the seventh German MTB-congress shows ways of turning ideas into bike offers, but also explores the question of what makes good trails – for bikers, for bike regions and for nature. Furthermore it takes up the question on how to make mountain biking more diverse, make mountain biking better.

In Germany, as well as in many other European countries, access to high-quality trails, varied bike parks, pumptracks close to home and eventful bike tours is the bottleneck in the development of biking. The Mountain Bike Tourism Forum Germany has set out once again to change this along with hosting the seventh MTB-congress.


The congress provides insight on the processes that lead from an idea, through project sketches, preliminary planning, participation procedures, permits and implementation to the opening of new bike offers. Based on international best practices it will as well highlight approaches and methodologies in visitor management and look at the importance of trail maintenance.
