Experience the diversity of South Tyrol up close and personal while biking. Seven South Tyrolean cities and towns, each with its own unique charm, are connected by a cycle path. Five stages lead from the northernmost city in the province, Sterzing, to the smallest town in South Tyrol, Glurns (or vice versa). Along this mostly paved trail, pass the bishop's seat of Brixen/Bressanone explore the bustling Bruneck/Brunico in the east, the artist’s city of Klausen/Chiusa and the provincial capital of Bolzano/Bozen. You'll travel through some idyllic countryside with farms, small hamlets and flowering meadows, cycle along South Tyrol's most important rivers, the Etsch, Eisack and Rienz, and catch glimpses of majestic castles and fortresses such as the Reifenstein castle near Sterzing or the Trostburg castle near Waidbruck/Ponte Gardena.
The Südtirol Rad Cycle Path also allows you to take a detour to the province’s south by turning onto the South Tyrolean Wine Road. Vineyards and apple trees line the way as you travel all the way to Kalterer See lake or even further into the Mediterranean south, if you’d prefer. Alternatively, continue your journey on the Südtirol Rad Cycle Path and head west. Here, shortly before your final destination in Glurns in the Vinschgau valley, you’ll be treated to the city of thermal spas of Meran/Merano.
