Hikes, excursions and adventures on foot or by bike near Bolzano

A natural paradise south of the Alps

Freudenstein Castle is the ideal starting point for varied hiking or cycling tours: a refreshing hike in the shade of the woods or a peaceful walk through the vineyards, a bike ride around the local lakes or a hike on uncrowded paths to reach one of the medieval fortresses… Every day of your holiday in South Tyrol will be an authentic discovery, between the landscapes in the valley and those in the mountains, and you will make unforgettable memories.

The best hikes

Just a couple of kilometres away are the wonderful bathing lakes of Monticolo and Caldaro, which fascinate visitors with their rich biodiversity of flora and fauna. Equally worthy are the scenic trails that lead to the Korb, Appiano, Boymont or Firmiano castles, which houses the Messner Mountain Museum dedicated to the mountains.

Bike tours for all levels

Cycling through the vineyards or along the flat shores of the Monticolo and Caldaro lakes, conquering all the swithbacks of the panoramic roads of the Mendola Pass and the Palade Pass or descending adrenaline-pumping slopes by mountain bike: the choice is yours, the possibilities are endless.
