Bikes, tours and cycle paths: exploring Italy’s Alpine city of Merano 

Friday, 10 June 2022 11:09

Bikes, tours and cycle paths are the best way to explore Italy’s Alpine city of Merano. On the saddle of a bike is the most comfortable, healthy and safe way to go, also thanks to the Bike-boxes located around the city that allow you to securely store your bike for free for 24 hours. For those who are curious to discover the territory in all its glory, Sissi Tours offers guided E-Bike tours: the program includes visiting farms and wine tastings and getting to know South Tyrolean culture.

Two exciting cycle trails

The Val Passiria and Val Venosta cycle paths both deserve special mention. The Val Passiria trail is from Merano to San Leonardo in Passiria and has a difference in height of about 370 metres, running for 20 kilometres alongside idyllic orchards, romantic bridges and enchanting villages. The Val Venosta connects Merano to the Resia Pass, is 80 kilometres long and winds along the Adige, following the Via Claudia Augusta.

Bike rentals and mobility scooters

This year's novelty is the innovative and sustainable rental service for e-bikes and mobility scooters from the Merano Thermal Baths whbich, together with their partner Emoby, have created a system for renting electric bicycles and scooters. For mountain bike lovers, the choice is equally vast with many trails at altitudes between 300 and 3000 metres. The hut-to-hut tours, combined with sporting challenges and ending at table with local delicacies, are very popular.

A cable car to 2,000 metres asl

From the city to the crisp air of 2,000 metres above sea level in no time! It only takes 10 minutes by bus to reach the departure point of the cable car and another seven minutes to get to an altitude of 2,000 metres and the Merano2000 ski resort, in the middle of the Avelengo plateau, one of the largest in the South Tyrol. Here you can explore woods and mountains along a network of paths and forest roads, on foot or by bike and there are over ten huts and restaurants where you can relax over the classical dishes typical of the region.
