Oltradige cycle track: Bolzano - Appiano - Caldaro

This cycle track connects the town of Bolzano to the wine-growing area between Appiano, Caldaro and Lake Caldaro.

From Bolzano this cycle track stretches along the Isarco river towards south, up to the fork "Merano - Appiano". From this point the cycle route continues towards north for some km, afterwards it traverses a bridge. Here, right underneath Castel Firmiano, the track starts rising a little: This is where once upon a time the Oltradige Railway used to operate.

The cycle path traverses the wine-growing area between Cornaiano and Frangarto, crosses several galleries and finally comes to reach San Michele Appiano. From the former San Michele Appiano station, we proceed towards south, up to the fork "Kreuzweg" the trail snakes parallel to the road. This is where the routes split: If you would like to cycle to Lake Caldaro, follow the track to Ora.

If you would like to visit the village of Caldaro (Kaltern), follow the signposts "Überetscher Spazierweg". The route to Lake Caldaro (Kalterer See) is not really a cycle track, as on this trail inhabitants and farmers are allowed to drive with their tractor and vehicles, so be cautious. However, the trail to Caldaro is also a walking route, so please respect pedestrians and walkers!
