With views over the Merano valley floor.
Perfect tour for apple blossom in spring or even late in autumn. This loop in the Merano valley basin with views over the valley floor and across to the east side with the striking red hump of the Knottenkino can still be ridden on nice dry days in November, as the maximum altitude in Tisens remains below the 700 m mark.
