COVERING GROUND ON THE FLAT OR UPHILL CLIMB – IT'S ALL HERE!
Cycling – exploring your holiday destination the green and healthy way. Even better when the South of South Tyrol seems just created for cycling! Of course, not all bikes are the same. There are ones for speeding over tarmac and others for hurtling down hillsides on, there are determined uphill pedallers and leisurely bike riders. For some there's no mountain high enough, others go for distance on the flat, and there are lots in search of good views. Kaltern and the surrounding area more than cater for all!
Between mountains and valleys
It is here that spring first produces its first blossom and autumn stays warm and sunny for longest. The climate here is perfect for a cycling holiday in Kaltern and the surrounding area. But the cycle paths along the valleys heading northwards from here to Meran or beyond into Vinschgau valley or to the south and Lake Garda are perfect, too. As do the small tarmac roads, gravel tracks and paths that criss-cross forest, vineyards and orchards leading either to the Lake at Kaltern or in the other direction to the Montiggl Lakes.
Those favouring woodland paths and mountains over lakes can look to the Mendel. Your wheels can be transported up to the Mendel Pass in the historical Mendelbahn funicular railway and you can set out from there.
You can go from wine village to wine village on a nippy city runabout or e-bike and enjoy what the local people and landscape have created – this is Karl and Monika from Römerrast's tip.
Bike shuttle service? Bus connection – it's all here! But you might not need it as the best cycling tours can be undertaken right from the hotel. The start of paths through the woods and along the valleys may be reached in a few minutes. Just jump in the saddle!
Any more questions? Karl will be happy to answer them. He is a keen cyclist himself and knows the local area like his pannier and has handy hints in store for all kinds of cyclists and levels of fitness. You'll find a carefully put together collection of tours ordered according to level of difficulty at reception. Maps, tour descriptions and all that you need to make your cycling holiday more comfortable can be found at Hotel Römerrrast.
