Highlights and places of interest along the route:

Description:

South Tyrol would like to tempt you on a two wheel trip!
Whilst travelling along the well-built cycle paths, you will get to know all about this little country, its flair and specialities. The unspoilt nature with its roaring rivers, the mountains and lakes with their legends, customs, and a culture of a country influenced by history, and the South Tyrolean hospitality with its specialities and excellent wines.
This bike tour takes you along the cycle paths from eastern Pustertal and the Dolomites to the capital town of Bolzano; to lake Kalterer See, the spa town of Merano and into the Vinschgau Valley. A transfer takes you over the Jaufen Pass and from there you cycle to the town of Vipiteno where you get back and cycle to the Bishop’s town of Bressanone, official seat of the Bishop and provincial Diocese of the Catholic Church.

  
Characteristics of the route:

An easy tour for everyone! In the last few years, the bike paths in the valleys have been re-constructed and in some cases, newly built. Although South Tyrol is better known for its mountains, you can also find easy bike paths in the valleys without great differences of altitude.
This tour is suitable for families with children over 14 years.
