Excellent rides, fantastic panoramas, rustic huts and mountain bike hotels who know what mountain bikers are looking for - South Tyrol offers everything you need for a perfect bike holiday.
The biking season starts earlier in the Alps south of the Brenner than elsewhere. While in other regions winter is still a force to contend with, in the Vinschgau and Merano region, south of South Tyrol, Eggental and Bressanone/Brixen, mild temperatures and dry trails will tempt you from the middle of March. South Tyrol is therefore ideal for the spontaneous escape of winter and everyday life in spring.
BikeHotels South Tyrol have selected 3 x 3 of the most beautiful mountain bike rides as inspiration for your spring bike trip to South Tyrol and provide you with a carefree bike holiday on site.

This mountain bike round is quite long, but rather simple, so you can fully enjoy it. It leads you to the idyllic Lake Fennberg, which invites you to a refreshing bath.The starting point is the Gasthof Terzer, which is completely geared to bikers and is ideally suited as a base camp for your bike tours. From Tramin it goes on asphalt to Söll and steeply up to the Gummerer farms. A gravel road leads you from vineyards to the village of Graun. Once again, you have to step in and then a quiet and little-used mountain road spits you up on Lake Fennberg, inviting you for a refreshing bath. So you should not forget your swimming trunks.Such a bath is well known to be hungry. In the nearby inn, you can strengthen yourself again before departure, before you can enjoy the long descent down to the hotel.
Lukas Terzer comes from Kurtatsch, is an innkeeper by passion and loves racing cycling and mountain biking. One of his favorite tours he presents here:"Start of the tour is in Kurtatsch.
