Explore the valley by bike. A slightly longer but fairly easy bike ride through cultivated landscapes
From the starting point at Merano thermal baths proceed eastward to the Postbrücke, then take the road in direction Val Passiria (Passeiertal). Then up Cavourstrasse and Georgenstrasse up to the bridge over the river Passino (Passer). Just before the bridge turn right on to the cycle path. The part is well signposted and runs gently uphill alongside the Passino (Passer), crossing the river a few times, through Val Passiria (Passeiertal) to St Leonhard. Much of the cycle part is not tarmacked. On the way back from St Leonhard, why not try a detour to Passeier museum - Sandwirt, birthplace of Andreas Hofer. From here, return via the same route to Merano.
