A paradise for mountain bikers

The "surroundings" in South Tyrol are also perfectly organized: A dense network of cycle paths 600 km long runs through the entire country. It is possible to rent mountain bikes and equipment practically everywhere, so that bike tours can be planned and started spontaneously and independently. Transport by train is also not a problem, and the bikemobil Card offers a great and affordable option for the combined use of public transport and rental bicycles.

Our tip:

GPS routes can be conveniently planned on the internet with all relevant route information. GPS tour tracks are available for many mountain bike routes and can be easily synchronized with the GPS navigation device. They also provide tips on sights and other highlights along the route. There are also various apps available for your smartphone.
