Distance 84.6 km
Cycling along ancient, historical tracks and discovering contemporary witnesses of Roman antiquity is the motto of what is probably the easiest Alpine crossing road for cycling enthusiasts.
There is no need for a tour description for this tour. As part of the overall route between Munich and Venice, the section through the Vinschgau Valley is perfectly signposted, and there are even signs for access to each village. On peak days, up to 4000 cyclists are counted here.
Whoever starts from Merano can take the train to Mals at the most and cycle the 50 km back. However, the province is in the process of electrifying the train so that there will then also be a direct connection to Switzerland.
The car should be avoided whenever possible in the Vinschgau Valley. It is a through road that offers no alternative on large stretches, and there are often long traffic jams. If you want to be fast, ride a bike! And then you also have the time and the inclination to take a look at the varied region. While the valley at the Reschen Pass is still quite barren and windy, the arrival town of Merano is famous for its mild Mediterranean climate, where even palm trees feel at home.
