Cycletour Brixen

Brixen - based in one hotel

Brixen | 4-star Vitalhotel Goldene Krone

Cycling in the valleys of South Tyrol.

The cathedral city of Brixen is the perfect starting point for your cycling tour through the valleys of South Tyrol. Scenic routes along the rivers Eisack and Rienz lead to cultural and natural highlights. The Dolomites seem to be really close, from your bike you will look up to their rugged, imposing peaks. The small town of Klausen with its narrow streets and romantic squares spreads a medieval atmosphere, almost like in the distant past. You will visit the impressive Walther Square in Bolzano, with the statue of Walther von der Vogelweide and you will get a chance to enjoy a wonderfully creamy cappuccino in one of the cozy cafes. Every day you will discover and experience new things, and at the same time enjoy it to return to your comfortable hotel in the evenings.

Itinerary

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.)
