Lake Reschen - Verona

Light-footed downhill to the south.

Whether spring, summer, or autumn, the southern slopes of the Alps are worth a visit by bike from the time of the first blossoms to harvest time. Regardless of whether you love nature or culture, this tour has to offer just the right thing for everyone! The castles along the way and the great culture in the different towns will inspire those who are interested. Just as the orchards and vineyards, the magnificent mountain panoramas, the fresh air and the unspoiled nature along the beautifully landscaped paths make every cyclist’s heart leap for joy. You will cycle on a bike path with 1,500 metres of descent from the Alps to Lake Garda and then further on to Verona!

Itinerary

By car or by train and bus to Reschenpass (mountain pass) and further to Reschen.

Sample hotel: Panorama

Today you will cycle along Lake Reschensee with a great view of the sunken church of Graun until you reach the medieval village of Glurns (perfectly preserved medieval city walls). Your destination is Schlanders, the capital of the famous Vinschgauer.

Sample hotel: Goldene Rose

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 while you  are rolling down on your bike into the tranquil Merano with its Mediterranean vegetation.

Sample hotel: Flora

Two paths lead to Bolzano: One along the Adige River and another through the impressive landscape of orchards via Lana and Eppan. Here you can find the Messner Mountain Museum in the well-restored ruin of Sigmundskron. Ötzi – the man from the ice – is worth a visit.

Sample hotel: Scala Stiegl

There are two ways to get to lake Caldaro: slightly hilly way on the cycle path via Eppan or on the flat cycle path along the Etsch (Adige) dam until you get to the charming wine village Auer.

Sample hotel: Kaufmann

From Auer onwards on the cycle path along the Etsch dam. The ‚Salurner Klause’ is the end of the German speaking part of South Tyrol. Your cycle path leads you through famous Trentino wine regions into the ancient diocesan town Trento (lovely old part of town, cathedral, Buonconsiglio palace).

Sample hotel: NH Trento

First, you will continue cycling along the Adige through Rovereto and on to Mori from where the route leads westwards towards Lake Garda. After a short ascent (Passo San Giovanni), you will descend down to the lake to Torbole and further on to Riva. From here, a boat will take you down the entire length of the lake.

Sample hotel: Bonotto Desenzano

You will travel on partly flat, partly slightly hilly roads through the vine hills to Verona, a city full of attractions (festival arena, Julia’s house, old city walls).

Sample hotel: Palace

Tour character

You will ride on beautiful bike paths mainly along the Adige River. The route will lead you from Reschenpass (mountain pass) almost 1,500 metres in altitude downhill to Lake Garda. However, you will have to cycle up some small climbs too. Overall, you will find yourself on beautiful bike paths and asphalted country roads. Unfortunately, moderate traffic is unavoidable on some short connecting roads.

War super, hat alles geklappt
Städte Verona und Venedig super schöne Städte. Strecken von Meran nach Verona abwechslungsreich, nachher etwas monotoner. Hotels alle recht gut. Gesamt nur zum Empfehlen.
