From leisurely walks to challenging hikes – there‘s something for everyone. Do you prefer cycling? Then you can ride your bike or e-bike along the many and varied cycle paths throughout South Tyrol or try your hand at some thrilling MTB-tours at high altitude.
Our summer tips …
Bee trail in the Upper Eisack Valley
A beautiful theme trail of about 1 km leading from Maria Trens to the locality of Valgenauna. The entire trail focuses on bees and their huge importance for agriculture and thus for mankind. A pleasant walk, surrounded by beautiful views, which conveys an important message. Once in Valgenauna, don’t miss the small late-Gothic church – very worth seeing!
Höllenkragen / Giogo di Trens
Our picturesque local mountain challenges you to reach its summit. To take this challenging but truly spectacular hike, you can start from Maria Trens or Partinges. From here, the trail goes steeply uphill along the old hay path to the Langwies fountain (good drinking water!). Passing along suggestive alpine pastures the tour leads to the Trenserjoch hut at 2,000 m and finally, along the south ridge, to the mountain summit at 2,387 m.
Cycling routes in South Tyrol
South Tyrol offers a well-developed network of cycle routes throughout the region. From Campo di Trens you can set off on an exciting bike tour: in fact, the cycle route which leads from Brennero to Fortezza – and which is part of the Munich-Venice long-distance cycle path – passes near our hotel. Tired legs? Don’t worry: along the route, at any time, you can take the train with your bike, both on the outward and the return journey.
