The cycle paths on the flat valley floor, however, are ideal for families and leisure cyclists. From our hotel in Vinschgau you can directly access the Via Claudia Augusta cycle path. It leads north to Lake Resia and heading south via the spa town of Merano all the way to Venice. We are partner business Southtirolbike, so in addition to solid basic equipment for bikers you will receive additional price advantages, e.g. discounts for guided tours.
The Glurnserhof – your hiking- and bike-hotel
Cycling, motorbiking and hiking in Vinschgau
These mountain passes fascinate! Both cyclists and motorbikers love the challenging mountain roads and passes in Vinschgau. Apart from the highlights Stelvio Pass (2,758m) and Timmelsjoch, (2,491m) there are many more Alpine passes to discover, such as Sellapass, Penser Joch or Umbrailpass. The milder climate with some 300 days of sunshine a year allows extensive motorbike and cycling tours even in spring and late autumn.
Ideal for families are the gentle irrigation channel trails without major elevation differences. On the Watles adventure trail you’ll also find many family-friendly hikes and attractions, such as a playing lake, mountain carts and an archery facility.
Hiking in Stelvio National Park
Yet we are not just a bikehotel, but also accommodate at least as many avid mountaineers – hiking in Vinschgau starts at the front door, after all. Glurns lies at the feet of a biodiverse and impressive hiking area, the Stelvio National Park around the Ortler-Cevedale-Group. The National Park is one of the biggest nature reserves in Europe with a diverse flora and fauna, mountain lakes, glaciers and 3,000 m peaks. Have fun exploring!
