This route from Kastelruth village centre to Seis am Schlern passes through the picturesque hamlets of Tisana and St. Oswald with their small chapels, the fascinating natural spectacle of the “Ice Hole” wind tunnels, the ruins of Aichach and the Malenger water mill. The route leads, in part, along ancient roads with tracks that have been worn down over the centuries and offers beautiful views over the Eisacktal, the Ritten and, naturally, the Schlern and its neighbouring mountains.

Attention! There is a very difficult part on this tour!
The St. Oswald tour begins in the direction of the Tisenser Bühlen hill, passes Tisens and then turns towards the south-west. There is a brief technically-challenging stretch here, we suggest to push you’re bike. This part is very difficult and only advised for advanced bikers. After this part the tour continues comfortably and on a section of the main road, followed shortly afterwards by a small, quiet downhill trail towards St Oswald. As you pass by old farms and orchards, the view sweeps over the Val Isarco which rises up before you. Keep to the same road which, after a while, runs uphill. With the Schlern now in view, continue onwards past the golf course, until you come to Siusi allo Sciliar. The tour then leads along small, remote trails, past Telfen and on to Kastelruth.
