South Tyrol for families

From Merano to lake Garda.

A cycle tour with the whole family…is there anything better? With Eurobike young and old enjoy a family holiday of a special kind in Italy. Through vineyards and orchards you cycle past culturally rich castles and palaces. You travel through Bolzano, Trento and Rovereto comfortably towards the blue beauty of Lake Garda.

Fun and games are very important during family holidays. When the little ones need a rest from cycling, there are plenty of ways to take a pause. In almost every South Tyrolean village there is a swimming pool to splash around in. A cool down is not only fun for little water babies, but also for mum and dad.

So much is clear: cycling makes you hungry! Pizza, spaghetti and lasagne make children’s mouths water. Take a stop in a picturesque town and enjoy ‘La Dolce Vita’. The delicious dishes of Italian cuisine conjure are perfect for parents and bambini.

Details of the cycle tour for families in South Tyrol

The family cycle tour starts in Merano. Through the Mediterranean flair you cycle in beautiful scenery towards the historic town of Bolzano. A detour into the mystical labyrinth garden in Tschems provides an adventure for little cyclists.

The lively route continues via Auer to Trento. Young and old can explore the wine landscapes of South Tyrol on two wheels. With each push of the pedals you get closer to the Italian way of life and the melody of the Italian language.

On the trail of the dinosaurs you go by bike to Rovereto. Foodie tip: Take a break and enjoy some real Italian gelato. After a little refreshment, the kids will find it much easier to continue their journey. With the arrival in Lake Garda, not only mum and dad will be brimming with happiness, but the little ones too.

Itinerary

Arrive in Merano and move into your accommodation. The travel documents and rental bikes (if booked) will already be in your hotel.

Hotel example: Hotel Flora

Today you set off with the Vinschgaubahn towards the Reschenpaas. From Laas, you will cycle down to Merano. In Rabland, the train world museum are waiting for all upcoming train driver enthusiasts. Or you can go on a detour to the Alpin-Bob-Meran 2000. A short bus journey and then you will be at 1900m. From there you will quickly get down into the valley with the mountain toboggan. Great fun for everyone.

Hotel example: Hotel Flora

You will set off on your cycle tour today from the lovely spa town, Merano. You will cycle past orchards and vineyards and you will be able to sense the Mediterranean flair. The great palaces and castles are silent guards along your way. Take a short detour to the mystical labyrinth garden in Tschrems or cool down in the Nalser swimming pool. Once you have arrived in Bolzano, you can pay a visit to the Ötzi museum or you can simply enjoy the “Dolce Vita” in the historical old town.

Hotel example: Scala Stiegl

Today you leave South Tyrol’s capital. Cycle along the river Adige and continue on your way. You can then smell the wonderful smell of the orchards again. Here is where the Adige valley opens up to its widest point and you can really marvel at the Mediterranean nature. You will spend the night in Auer, which is a typical village in South Tyrol, which still maintains its character and its genuine, south Tyrolean hospitality.

Hotel example: Biohotel Kaufmann

After a good night’s sleep and in a good mood, you are now refreshed and ready to go for your next day’s cycling. Today’s cycle path runs right through extensive vineyards. You visit a particularly exciting place for children with climbing rocks, ruins and animals on your way to visit the Biotop Castelfelder. Today you will leave the most southern part of southern Tyrol and also the language border: from now on you will hear more and more Italian.

Hotel example: Hotel Everest

Trento with all of its museums, its heritage and its old town are all waiting for you on this discovery tour. Stroll leisurely through the little streets before you then continue on by bike. Cycle past the powerful Beseno Castel, which sits enthroned above the Adige valley. Your cycle path will then take you through vineyards to Rovereto. In Rovereto, dinosaur fans can follow the traces of the dinosaurs on 5 small trails.

Hotel example: Hotel Leon D’Oro

Today your bike route leaves the Adige valley because lake Garda is now waiting for you. In Mori, you can try the all-round famous pistachio ice cream in the gelateria Bologna. After the only noticeable hill on this tour, you speedily cycle downhill past the blue lakes to Torbole. You will spend your last night in Torbole or Riva, two well-known holiday destinations, which are well-known for their innumerable possibilities for different sports. A wonderful end to your magnificent cycle tour in Italy.

Hotel example: Hotel Caravel

Today you have to say goodbye to the Italian flair. Or you can enjoy the sun for another day at one of lake Garda’s beach areas. You can also get to Gardaland (a theme park) quickly from here….

Tour character

You cycle along the river Adige and through the Mediterranean scenery. Always on well-built cycle paths or quiet side roads. Only one short hill during the tour (about 150m ascent). The stages can be shortened by train if desired.

empfehlenswerter Familienurlaub
Schöne Strecke mit sehenswerten Städten, Unterkünfte familienfreundlich, Beschilderung manchmal nicht eindeutig (aber da waren wir von den Niederlanden verwöhnt), und natürlich schöne Landschaft und gutes Essen. Betreuung durch Euro-Aktiv sehr zuvorkommend. Für Familien gerade in Corona-Zeiten eine gute Möglichkeit, zu verreisen

Wir sind Ihnen sehr dankbar für Ihr tolles Feedback und hoffen, dass wir Sie schon bald wieder auf einer unserer Familienradreisen begrüßen dürfen. Wie wäre es vielleicht mit unserer Familientour an der Donau?
