The South Tyrolean Wine Route around Tramin and Lake Kaltern offer the perfect combination of road bike, culture and leisure holiday. Leisurely and challenging road bike tours, Italian flair and one or the other glass of good wine: this is how a road bike holiday should be.
Surrounded by vast vineyards and blessed with 300 days of sunshine a year: this is how the South Tyrolean Wine Route can be described. Here you bike past palm trees, cypresses and lemon trees and along vineyards and apple orchards. A quick dive into Lake Kaltern is the icing on the cake.
Road cycling routes & tips for training
The wide, flat valley along the Etsch is perfect for endurance training and the region around the wine-growing town of Tramin is a fantastic starting point for altitude training. From here you reach the Manghen Pass or the Monte Bondone north of Lake Garda, for example.
But the region also offers other event highlights: There is the car-free bike day at the Mendel Pass in September for example, and the Lake Kaltern Triathlon attracts many national and international top athletes to the region in spring. Thanks to the mild temperatures, the training conditions are already perfect then.
