A relaxing cycling path for nature lovers
Length: about 20 km; difference in altitude: about 370 m.

This slightly ascending and largely natural bike path leads from the center of Meran/Merano (the Sissi Statue in Elisabeth Park - Summer Promenade) along the Passer River, and ends in St. Leonhard/San Leonardo. This path does not lead directly through the villages that lie along its route, but cyclists can take a detour into anyone of them.

Please note that the bus line 240 from Meran to St. Leonhard is not equipped for bicycle transport.
