Brixen - based in one hotel

Cycling in the valleys of South Tyrol

Wonderful cycle paths, impressive natural scenery and villages with a lot of culture: on the Brixen tour you cycle through the valleys of South Tyrol, from Brixen to Bolzano to the Puster Valley. From the bike saddle, the impressive and massive peaks of the Dolomites are very close. Dreamlike vineyards and river landscapes line the cycle paths. Immerse yourself in the South Tyrolean way of life and enjoy the incredible charm of this region by bike.

Details about the Brixen tour based in one hotel

The perfect starting point for your cycling tours is the cathedral city of Brixen. From here you cycle to your heart’s content through the surrounding valleys. The special thing about it: the order is variable. You can decide for yourself which valley to explore on the saddle on which day. At the end of the day, you always come back to your starting point of Brixen.

Relaxation? Anyone who loves to rest after cycling can look forward to it. Treat yourself to a break and let the relaxation run wild. Foodies take note! In South Tyrol the culinary arts are very important. Indulge in regional delicacies and indulge in Italian cuisine!

A very special highlight in South Tyrol is the wine: From sweet white wines to strong red wines, you can find it all on the South Tyrolean Wine Route. Tip: Taste the fine wines and enjoy ‘La Dolce Vita’ in South Tyrol.

Highlights of the Brixen tour based in one hotel at a glance

  • Bolzano: You cycle along an old railway line for about 45 kilometres from Brixen to Bolzano. The magnificent cycle path leads through the medieval town of Klausen. As the valley narrows, the vineyards get closer. Culture tip: Take a stroll in Bolzano. The Laubengasse, the Ötzimuseum and the Waltherplatz are definitely worth a visit.
  • Vahrner See: The short stage (about 20km) to Lake Vahrner offers fantastic opportunities to enjoy the region. Take advantage of the Brixencard for a city tour, a cable car ride or hiking experiences. The best thing about it is that you can take a cooling dip in Lake Vahrner in between.

Useful information about the tour

On the seven-day centre-based tour you will cycle approximately 205 kilometres over five stages. The routes are mostly downhill and are therefore perfect for leisure cyclists. In your hotel in Brixen you will start the day with a rich breakfast buffet.

Chronology variable!

You will get your travel documents and rental bikes (if booked). We recommend taking a first walk through the charming old town.

A wonderful tour to start with! The old railway track from Brixen to Bolzano was adapted into a fantastic bike path. Going steadily downhill, the track leads you through the medieval town of Klausen with the monastery Säben. The valley is getting narrower and narrower and the vineyards of the most northerly wine-growing region of Italy are getting closer and closer. All too soon, you will reach Bolzano! You should take a walk through the arcades to the Ötzi museum (free admission with the Brixen Card) and stop at Piazza Walther before you will return to Brixen by train.

In the morning there will be a short transfer by shuttle bus to Elvas above Brixen. The route will lead you from village to village. On slightly hilly terrain, you will cycle across orchards with great views of the valleys Pustertal and Eisacktal. On the way back, you can visit the Augustinian Abbey of Neustift where you will find the world's smallest Bible.

In the morning there will be a transfer by train to the Brenner Pass. From the small border town Brenner, you will cycle on a newly extended bike path, mostly along the river Eisack, first to the little village Gossensass and immediately afterwards to Sterzing, the once mighty city of the Fugger. Here you can enjoy a long break before you will continue your tour on the bike path downhill to the beautiful Castle Reifenstein and Franzensfeste with the famous fortress. From there, only a few kilometers remain on your way back to Brixen.

Slightly uphill, the trail will lead you to Lake Varna. On your way around the lake you can take some time to swim in the refreshing waters. Also the Kneipp facility at the city of Varna could help you to refresh your body. Because the tour is not very long, you will have enough time to take advantage of the extensive offers of the BrixenCard (cable car ride to the Plose, various museums, guided tours, hiking adventures, etc.)

In the morning, transfer by train into the Pustertal Valley, to Brunico or Toblach. You will follow the river Rienz, cycling mostly downhill on a beautiful bike path, leaving the valley behind you. The deep green Olang reservoir is located shortly before Bruneck (local history museum). Then, the route will lead you comfortably through the lower Pustertal valley to the Mühlbacher Klause and into the Eisacktal valley and finally back to Brixen.

Tour character

You will cycle on beautiful bike paths along the rivers Eisack and Rienz. Part of the tour will be cycled on side roads; mostly downhill on paved roads. Only during the trip to Lake Varna will you have to cycle up some short ascents and on gravel roads, which are in good condition.

Brixen Sternfahrt
Die Strecken waren gut ausgesucht und abwechslungsreich. Um Brixen herum waren die Radwege auch neu ausgebaut und die Strecken kaum mit Verkehr. An einem Tag mußten wir vor Franzensfeste auf der Bundesstraße fahren, dort ist ein Hang abgerutscht und die Straße noch nicht wieder frei. Sonst war gut geplant, die überwiegend bergauf Strecken mit dem Zug zu machen und bergab - mit Zwischenanstiegen- mit dem Rad. Die kleineren Touren um die Brixen herum in den Dörfern waren mit ganz schön steilen Anstiegen versehen, aber mit dem E-Bike ging das sehr gut, ohne wäre es nur was für sehr sportliche. Wir waren zu viert, das Kartenmateriel auch für das Handy und das Fahrradnavi funktionierte gut, die Brixen-Card ermöglicht viele öffentliche Verkehrsmittel zu nutzen und Museen und Klöster zu besuchen. Mein erstes E-Bike hatte ein Problem mit dem Einrasten der Schaltung, ich bekam aber sofort am abend ein anderes. Mein mann hatte ein E-Bik, bei dem die Rücktritt-Bremse sehr quietschte und wohl nicht mehr ganz in Ordnung war, er hat allerdings nicht getauscht. Die Räder erschienen uns sehr robust, etwas gefederter Sattel wäre nicht schlecht. Das Hotel in Brixen war sehr schön und das Frühstück sehr gut. Insgesamt waren wir mit der Reise sehr zufrieden.
