South Tyrol … just so
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 reconstructed 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.

The region’s biggest and sweetest treat is the Wiesener “strawberry”. The wonderful scent of the sun-ripened fruits and the sparkling Rosalia Frizzante rosé make your mouth water. If it were not a strawberry, you would have to address it like royalty. Meadow festivals, the Mecca of Jazz, the Bad Sauerbrunn Spa Concerts or Forchtenstein Castle are waiting for you with a colourful festival programme.

Yellow, red, blue, dotted, small, large, round and oblong, waxy and floury anyway – potato varieties are like stars in the sky. For Hans Moser and Andrea, this is always an incentive to cultivate unusual “newcomers” in addition to popular standard varieties here in Salzburg’s Lungau region every year.

The whitefish innkeepers at Lake Millstatt do what their ancestors used to do: Every day they take the whitefish from the floating nets and process it straightaway. What the emperor used to enjoyed is still considered a delicacy today.
