Cycling holiday in South Tirol
Our passionate cycling guests can rent a mountain bike or e-mountain bike from our partner „Tirol Bike“ in Dorf Tyrol. If you rather bring your own bike, you can store it in our secured bike room free of charge. Here you can also recharge your batteries.
Mountain bikes and e-Bikes
For all our cycling fans, we can give you many exciting tips on excursions, destinations and bike tours in and around Dorf Tirol. The easier cycling routes in the valley take you through orchards, historic town centres and along the spectacular wine route from Merano to Nalles. For families with kids and people who want to take it easy, we recommend the signposted bike paths along the Passer and Adige rivers. The first one can be reached from Dorf Tirol via the Alter Tirolersteig, the Etschtal cycle-path can be reached via the Gnaidweg.
And while more advanced mountain bikers and singletrack lovers will feel at home on the many alpine paths, adrenaline junkies can get their fix on the many challenging mountain trails.
The „Claudia Augusta“ cycle path
Follow in the footsteps of the Romans on your bike: the ancient Via Claudia Augusta was built more than 2,000 years ago by the Romans and reaches from the Danube to the Adriatic Sea. The Claudia Augusta route begins in Germany, in Donauwörth in northern Swabia to be precise.
From here it runs through Bavaria and Austria and finally gets into South Tyrol over the Passo Resia. From here, the cycle-path runs through the Val Venosta valley all the way to Merano, then continues to Bolzano, where it crosses the borders from South Tyrol to the Trentino region. You can take the train from Merano to Malles, rent a bike from our partner Vinschger Rad and explore the upper Val Venosta or take the cycling path to Merano.
Naturno - Merano
Of course, there are also shorter tours - you can rent a bike at one of the many stations of the Vinschger Railway. For example, you could stop in Naturno, rent a bike and explore the surroundings of Merano.
