Distance 28.3 km
Along the river.
The ride from Merano to the Passeier Valley is one of the classics for all young and old cyclists from Burggrafenamt. Easy to cycle, can be extended or shortened at any time. But the reward is always an ice cream in the town on the river Passer.
Cross the roundabout at the car park exit on the red zebra crossing and continue straight on, following the sign for the Vinschgau Valley cycle path. At the bridge over the Passer, after 1.4 km, keep to the right and follow the river towards the centre of Merano. Follow the cycle path signs past the Merano Lido and shortly afterwards cross the railway line. Along Speckbacherstrasse and Carduccistrasse you reach the municipal theatre in the centre of Merano. Cross the Frei- heitsstraße to the Postbrücke bridge, where you immediately turn left at the traffic lights into the Elisabeth Park. Now follow the cycle path into the Passeier Valley. Through the park, past the statue of Empress Sissi and a children's playground, you begin a short ascent with 35 metres of altitude difference. As soon as you see the Zenoburg Castle, you're done and you're rolling along the cycle path to the Lazag recreation area with a large lake and benches for resting. Ideal for a first break!
