Discover South Tyrol by bike
The entertaining adventure bike tour from Vipiteno/Sterzing to Glorenza/Glurns
The South Tyrolean cycle path is an ideal way for cycling fans to get to know the varied nature of South Tyrol at first hand. Based on two different route variations, you can go from either Vipiteno to Glorenza or the opposite way, from South Tyrol’s smallest town Glorenza in the Vinschgau valley to the medieval merchant town of Vipiteno, the most northerly town in the province. In five stages, you ride past forts and castles, the mighty Fortezza/Franzensfeste in the north, the bishop's seat of Bressanone/Brixen with its impressive cathedral to Brunico/Bruneck in the east. From there you proceed along the Eisack river to the arts town of Chiusa/Klausen and to South Tyrol's capital, Bolzano/Bozen. You then ride along the South Tyrolean Wine Road to the Kalterer See lake, which, surrounded by vineyards, has a distinctly southern flavour. The cycle path eventually also takes you to the spa town of Merano/Meran, which has long been a popular destination due to its Mediterranean climate. Onwards past apple orchards across the Vinschgau valley until you finally reach the medieval lanes of Glorenza. The South Tyrolean cycle path combines South Tyrol’s seven towns which makes this an entertaining adventure bike tour.
Two wheels, seven towns
In South Tyrol, each place has its own special charm: from the vibrant, lively towns with their precious sacred structures and architectural attractions that harmoniously combine tradition and modernity, to well-preserved medieval villages. You can experience the special features of the South Tyrolean cities particularly well on two wheels.
