Adige Cycle Route Along the Via Claudia Augusta

An especially popular route for leisure cyclists is the 80-km Adige Cycle Route which runs slightly downhill along the ancient Roman road known as the Via Claudia Augusta.

The route runs for the most part on flat terrain or gently downhill. The Venosta Valley’s outstanding cycling route network allows for a relaxing ride on ideal surfaces, i.e. either paved or rolled gravel. The Adige Cycle Route is especially popular with leisure cyclists. One can rent bicycles at a number of local train stations and return them at others, so that bringing a bicycle along on holiday is not necessary, and tours can be shortened or simplified at any time using the Venosta Valley Railway. The bike path starts at Resia Lake, passing the church tower in the lake, continues along the shores of the Malga S. Valentino Lake, over Burgusio/Burgeis with a view of Malles/Mals with its seven Romanesque churches, and through the medieval town of Glorenza/Glurns. From there it’s a flat ride to Prad, the gateway to Stelvio National Park, through the marble village of Lasa/Laas, then downhill to Covelano/Göflan and through apple orchards to Laces/Latsch. From Laces the route runs by Kastelbell Castle and the early Christian St. Prokulus Church in Naturno/Naturns, and ends in Merano/Meran.
