Cycling tracks in the Puster Valley
The Bike Highlight in South Tyrol: The cycle track brings you past the Alps and Dolomites, constantly accompanied by the river Rienza through a green high valley. It begins at the city of Bressanone and ends on the other side of the South Tyrolean border in Austria – 65 km of enjoyment amidst unspoiled nature. The cycle tracks, which are tarred in places are easy to reach for everyone.
The train track which crosses the whole valley from Bressanone to San Candido allows you to take your bike on board and provides you with a high level of flexibility. Those who find the routes too difficult can rent out electric bikes made in South Tyrol from us or use the bike shuttle.
