Turn-by-turn directions

At Atzwang in the Eisack valley and close to the Schlern Ovest motorway service area, you will find the southern link route leading to one of the Seiser Alm mountain bike routes. Along the Isarco Valley bike path, in the small hamlet of Atzwang, the road branches off towards Völs am Schlern, over a new bridge near the old wooden bridge. The road leads steadily uphill, but is a limited-traffic area and open only to local residents. With a good 450 m of elevation to tackle it is by no means child’s play, but your efforts will be amply rewarded with views over vineyards and chestnut groves which line the route around Novale di Fiè. When you come to St. Anton you can either access the Hofer Alpl loop route directly or bike the last few kilometres back to the set off point in Völs am Schlern.
