Merano - Lake Garda

From the Alps to the Lago.

Spring, summer or autumn, South Tyrol is always worth a trip especially by bike. Glistening ice caves, mountain massifs, bountiful orchards and vineyards transform your journey into a sensuous adventure. You cycle downwards into the valley along the river Adige until Bolzano. Relax, recuperate and enjoy a bottle of the world renowned Kalterer wine. Appreciate the well-maintained and stunning cycling paths to your final stop, the impressive Lake Garda - the crowning finale of this very attractive tour.

Itinerary

Travel documentsand rental bikes (if booked) are to be found at the hotel.

Sample hotel:

Hotel Siegler im Thurm

Take the train line ‘Vinschgaubahn’ towards the mountain pass ‘Reschenpass’. From the town of Mals onwards to Glurns (perfectly preserved Medieval city wall). Via the Montani ruins past Schlanders and heading south to Merano. Castles and palaces dot your way or tower high above (i.e. Juval castle owned by the Austrian mountaineer Reinhold Messner). While cycling enjoy marvellous views of the impressive ‘Ortler’ massif and the ’Stilfserjoch’. This stage can be shortened if you wish.

Sample hotel:

Hotel Siegler im Thurm

Via Lana (Schnatterpeck altar) and through numerous orchards and vineyards in the area of the South Tyrolian wine route, past several well-fortified castles, palaces and ruins onwards to Eppan and along the base of Sigmundskron castle (Messner-Mountain museum) to Bolzano (pergolas, ‘Ötzi’ museum).

Sample hotel:

Hotel Scala Stiegl

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

Sample hotel:

Bio-Hotel & Residence Kaufmann

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

Sample hotel:

Hotel NH Trento

Shortly after the old Tyrolian border town of Rovereto, our cycling tour leaves the Adige valley. In Mori you will taste the world famous pistachio ice-cream in the Gelateria Bologna. After the only ascent worth mentioning (approx. 150 m)over the small San Giovanni pass, the path leads downhill along the lake towards Torbole. The cycle tour either ends in Riva or Torbole.

Sample hotel:

Hotel Caravel

Tour character

An easy cycle tour, mainly on cycle paths. Only towards lake Caldaro and lake Garda will you come across minor ascents.

Beautiful rout!
It was our first experience in bicycle tour in Europe and we were more then happy with chosen route: gorgeous panoramas, beautiful mountains, nice weather, comfortable hotels, friendly staff. We had no problems with maps, paths were safe. We insistently recommend this tour for every level of sport training. Если вы не можете решить, в какой же тур вам поехать - смело выбирайте путь от Мерано до Гарды! вы не устанете, так как по сути будете спускаться с гор. Виды гор завораживают, маршруты удобные и ненапряжные, есть отрезки с городским трафиком, но в Европе с пониманием относятся к велосипедистам, и опасность вам не грозит. Часть пути лежит через виноградники, где можно сделать остановку на винокурне и отдохнуть за кувшином домашнего вина.

Meran Gardasee
Die Hotels lagen sehr zentral. Grosser Vorteil z.B. in Bozen, Trento und Torbole. Vermutlich ist da frühes Buchen von Vorteil. Die Streckenführung ist landschaftlich wunderbar und fast immer gut ausgeschildert.

Wunderschöne Radtour von Meran zum Gardasee/Torbone
Die Radtour von Meran zum Gardasee ist eine ausgesprochen schöne Radstrecke. Die Route über abseits gelegene Strecken ist sehr zu empfehlen; insbesondere die 1. Etappe zum Vinschgau. Super! Der Strecke führte zum großen Teil in Apfel- oder Weinplantagen. Der Autoverkehr trat größtenteils in den Hintergrund. 1/2 Stern Abzug für die Etappe zum Kalterer See. Der See enttäuschte, da er fast ausschließlich in privater Hand ist und nur an einem kleinen Teil anzufahren ist. Dafür entschädigte der weitere Verlauf zum Gardasee. Die Hotels waren sehr gut und leicht anzufahren. Da wir noch sonniges Wetter hatten war der Entschluß für eine weitere Fahrt in Südtirol im Jahr 2018 leicht zu fassen. Großes Lob für den Veranstalter.

Tolle Radtour mit super Panorama
Diese Radtour war einfach zum genießen. Sehr gute Radwege mit tollem Panorama und sehr guter Ausschilderung. Die Hotels waren alle gut bis sehr gut und immer sehr stadtnah. Die Fahrt über den Gardasee von Riva nach Sirmione war ein Erlebnis. Auch die Rückfahrt von Sirmione nach Meran mit dem Kleinbus hat super geklappt. Ein Danke an Eurobike für die gute Organisation. Wir werden mit Sicherheit wieder bei Eurobike buchen.
