description to arrive at destination
The A 22 Brenner toll motorway is the most direct route into the south of South Tyrol holiday region. Exit at Bolzano South (Sud) and take the MEBO dual carriageway in the direction of Merano/Meran as far as the exit for Appiano/Eppan. Follow the signs to the various villages and hamlets in the Appiano area: Frangart, Girlan, St. Michael, Montiggl, St. Pauls, Missian and Predoning.
By rail/ bus:
All trains travelling the Brenner route stop at Bolzano. Exit the station, turn left and the bus station is on the opposite side of the road. There are regular bus services to Appano/Eppan.
The bike trail goes trough the wine villages Kaltern, Tramin and Kurtatsch up to the country frontier at Salurn. The tour is appropriate for all kinds of bycicles, but is the most fun to ride on e-bikes or racing bikes.
The route starts at Eppan and leads on the cycle path and the lake loop road to the Kalterer lake and onwards to Tramin. Towards the village you’ll find a rise. Take it and follow the Weinstraße until you reach Margreid and Kurtinig. In all of those villages you’ll find plenty of possibilities to stop for a bite to eat.
Arriving at Salurn, change the downhill side and follow the hillslope until you come to Laag. From there you can take the cycle path along the Etsch in a northward direction up until the spot where the rivers Etsch and Eisack are meeting. There you turn left and follow the old railway track of the Überetscher railway until the initial point in Eppan.
