From Brixen to Villnös by Bike

From Brixen to Villnöss

In addition to unique landscapes, imposing mountains and traditional villages, you can expect different types of terrain: Roads, gravel and forest paths will lead you through the Villnöß valley up to the Dolomite giants of the Odle mountains. Once at their foot, the traditional alpine huts reward you with a cosy atmosphere and South Tyrolean delicacies.

The tour starts in Brixen at the car park near the sports zone South, from where it follows the valley bike path to the village Albeins. You cross the village centre and overcome the first few metres in altitude on a gravel path through a rustic forest. The trail continues uphill on a side road, past old farms and colourful flower meadows to the village Teis. From there the route continues towards St. Peter and St. Magdalena in Villnöß valley, which is characterised by exciting sections through woods and meadows. The last section leads up to Ranui, where the tour ends. You can continue the bike tour to the Villnöß alpine pastures, which are beautifully situated under the Geisler peaks and invite you to stop for a break.
