Turn-by-turn directions

The bike path starts right in St. Leonhard before the underpass of the ring road. After about 1 km, the path passes the MuseumPasseier – Andreas Hofer, which offers an outdoor museum area and a course called Heroes & Hofer on the ground floor. The ethnographic area is in the first floor and the outdoors is a typical local farm. The trail takes you past St. Martin, Quellenhof, Saltaus, and Riffian, ending in the old town of Meran.
