Innsbruck - Bolzano

The classic on Adige Cycle Path.

Whether in spring, summer, or autumn: South Tyrol is always worth a visit by bike. The glittering ice worlds, huge mountains, fertile orchards and vineyards make your journey an unforgettable sensual experience. You will start your tour in Innsbruck with a stopover in Imst, also called “Merano of North Tyrol”. From Landeck, you will take a bus to Nauders am Reschenpass. From there you will mainly cycle downhill. This way, also less athletic cyclists can master the route easily. Join the river Adige flowing into the valley, past the sunken village in Lake Reschenstausee, until you reach Bolzano. Take a rest, drink a bottle of the widely praised Kalterer wine, and enjoy the view of the Rose Garden: for some a beautiful mountain backdrop, for others the kingdom of the dwarf king Laurin, in which the roses start to glow in the sunset. This will be the perfect culmination of an amazing trip.

Itinerary

Welcome briefing and bike fitting. We then recommend that you visit Innsbruck’s famous old town with its City Tower and its “Golden Roof”.

Sample hotel: Austria Trend Congress

You will cycle along the former towpath along the river Inn, at the foot of Martinswand (mountain face) and through little villages and market towns to Stams (baroque Cistercian convent). Then, you will continue your tour via Haiming to Imst, the so-called “Merano of North Tyrol”.

Sample hotel: Hirschen

Today you will cycle along the river Inn, past Zams monastery to Landeck. A bus will take you to Nauders from where you will ascend just under 100 metres in altitude to the mountain pass, Reschenpass. From there, you will cycle downhill to Lake Reschensee and you will then continue along minor roads to Mals (many towers in the centre) or to Burgeis at the foot of the Marienburg castle.

Sample hotel: Garni Zum Hirschen 

Your day starts with a trip to Glurns (perfectly preserved medieval city walls). You then cycle via the Montani ruins, through Schlanders, down to Merano. On your way, you will come across some pretty castles (mountaineer Reinhold Messner’s castle Juval) and you will get marvellous views of the impressive mountain massif Ortlermassiv and the mountain pass Stilfserjoch. Since 2004, the Venosta train (Vinschgaubahn) has been operating again between Mals and Merano. You can almost always take this train if you don't want to cycle all of the way. 

Sample hotel: Flora

On the fifth day, you will have the opportunity to ride your bike into the Passeiertal valley to the Sandwirt inn (birthplace of the Tyrolean freedom fighter Andreas Hofer). Alternatively, you can hike on the famous Tappeiner trail or go shopping at the famous arcades of Merano.

Sample hotel: Flora

Today’s stage will take you via Lana (Schnatterpeck Altar) and through numerous orchards and vineyards in the area of the South Tyrolean Wine Road, past many fortresses, castles and ruins such as Hocheppan (famous frescos) to Lake Kalterer See. You will spend your night in the cosy wine town Auer.

Sample hotel: Kaufmann

Leaving the charming wine town behind you, you will cycle on flat routes through the Adige valley or via the Montiggler lakes (scenic, but more demanding route), past Sigmundskron to Bolzano (arcades, “Ötzi” museum).

Sample hotel: Scala Stiegl

It would be nice to continue for another few days... Well, that's possibly. You can extend the tour nicely to Venice or Verona from here. 

Tour character

You will cycle on bike paths in the river valleys of the Inn and Adige rivers. A bus will take you from Landeck to Nauders. From there you will cycle uphill 70 metres in altitude until you reach Reschenpass (mountain pass). Afterwards, you can enjoy cycling downhill for more than 1,200 metres in altitude to Bolzano. In order to stay on calm roads, cycling some small climbs will be necessary.

Perfekt organisierte Radreise
Die klassische Radtour von Innsbruck nach Bozen war landschaftlich sehr inspirierend. Hotels waren gut ausgesucht. Das Wetter war zum Glück super. Wir waren mit der Halbpension und den gebuchten E-Bikes sehr entspannt unterwegs. Das wäre für nicht so sehr sportliche und etwas Ältere (fast 60 Jahre) zu empfehlen.

Postcard perfect
The bikes were better than expected, comfortable and well-maintained. The gearing (27 gears) was smooth and with the "granny gear" the occasional climbs on this trip were OK even with a heavy bike. A tool set was provided that allowed us to make slight adjustments to seat position on the go. The hotels were comfortable, the scenery spectacular. One small quibble was that the gpx coordinates provided did not always match the written route or the cycle path signs, which caused some confusion, but it was difficult to get lost and we made it to our destination each day without problems. We will travel with Eurobike again.

Innsbruck-Bozen
Wunderschöne Fahrt entlang der Highlights im Vinschgau. Immer beste Aussichten auf die Bergmassive. Besonders beeindruckend, die Fahrt vom Reschenpass hinunter ins Tal mit Blick auf den Ortler. Aber auch der Kalterer See mit mediterranem Flair. Die Etappen waren gut gewählt, die Radwege fast immer vom Verkehr getrennt und bestens ausgebaut. Prima Hotels mit gutem Frühstück und sogar 3xPool, der besonders in Bozen für die nötige Erfrischung sorgte. Leider war am ersten Tag im Inntal immer wieder die Autobahn in der Nähe. Klasse-Tour!
