The 3rd stage of the South Tyrolean Cycling Track leads from the main city of Bolzano/Bozen, passing castle Cornedo/Karneid towards Prato all’Isarco/Blumau, after which the valley starts to become more narrow and the track, leading also through tunnels, passes Colma/Kolman and Campodazzo/Atzwang. At the gates of the Val Gardena/Gröden at 627m you will find the castle Trostburg. After passing the medieval town of Chiusa/Klausen and following the track along the river Isarco/Eisack you reach Stufles/Stufels, the antique district of Bressanone/Brixen.
