Day 1: Individual arrival in Brixen

Brixen is one of Tyrol’s oldest towns and for hundreds of years was the residence of Prince Bishops. In Stufels, the listed core of the town, relicts from the Stone Age have been discovered. The magnificent cathedral was where the bishop resided until 1964. And the Clarissan convent and the Capuchin monastery are witnesses to the influence of Christianity in the town.

Day 2: Excursion to Toblach, approx. 65 km + transfer

Today you will take the train to Toblach. From here you will cycle on the well-developed Puster Valley cycle path along the river Rienz. You are now in the heart of the Dolomites, which are characterised by rocks as white as chalk, dark forests and clear turquoise water. Over Bruneck, which is overshadowed by the Bishop´s Castle you will reach the monastery Neustift and from there cycle back to the start point.

Day 3: Brixen – Bozen, approx. 40 km

Today you will cycle through vineyards along the Eisack to Klausen. Here it is not a mighty castle which rises above the countryside, but a Benedictine monastery which is still inhabited today. There is enough time to explore the state capital Bozen. Do what ever you fancy, whether it is relaxing on the Walther Square, or taking a look at the famous Ötzi Mummy at the archaeological museum.

Day 4: Excursion to Lake Kalterer, approx. 45 km

Today the wine region Lake Caldaro is on the agenda. Castles and forts, churches and monasteries, romantic little towns, idyllic lakes for bathing and of course the vineyards, wine-growing estates and wine ‒ you can read about all of this in South Tyrol’s wine-growing museum, which is on your route. Take a dip in the idyllic Lago di Monticolo and visit the mountain museum in Sigmundskron Castle. There’s definitely no time for boredom.

Day 5: Bozen – Meran, approx. 35 / 45 km

Following the Wine Route you cross South Tyrol’s largest fruit-growing region. Passing numerous orchards you reach Andrian which is where South Tyrol’s oldest winery is to be found. And South Tyrol’s fruit-growing museum is located in Lana. Once you have arrived in the spa town of Meran, you will be able to delight in the gentle Mediterranean climate here. The unique gardens of Castle Trauttmansdorf are worthy of a visit.

Day 6: Excursion to Vinschgau region, approx. 60 km + transfer

The Vinschgerbahn railway has been reactivated and you can use it to get to Mals, which was formerly the town of seven turrets. Today it has only five. Following the Etsch, the route takes you down to the valley through Vinschgau. The wood from Sonnenberg mountain is said to have been used to build Venice. Glurns is on today’s path, one of the smallest towns in the Alps.

Day 7: Meran – Brixen, approx. 35 / 50 km + transfer

Before the last section of the route, you go by transfer from Meran to the Jaufenpass and then on to Sterzing. If you like you can switch to your bike on the Jaufenpass and enjoy the unique panoramic landscape on a speedy descent to Sterzing. From the Fugger town of Sterzing you cycle along wonderful cycle paths from the top of the Eisacktal valley to the former border point in Franzenfeste.

Day 8: Individual journey home or extension of stay

After breakfast your cycling holiday in South Tyrol ends. If you wish we can extend your stay.
