Tour 5

Tour 5 – Plätzwiese – Olang

We take you with the bike shuttle to the “Plätzwiese” alpine pasture, located 2000 metres above sea level.

Here you absolutely have to take time to enjoy the breath-taking views of the surrounding mountain landscape including the likes of the “drei Zinnen” (three peaks).

After a short, flat section comes the 7 km long descent, which needs a little cycling experience, towards Schluderbach (Carbonin) into the Rienztal.

The flat part of the ride starts here. Over the old railway line, through the parched river-bed, our path leads past Landro-See lake, and the drei Zinnen information point, along to Toblachersee lake where we can dangle our feet in the cool water and take our well-earned lunch break.

Once we are rested, we continue towards Toblach and perhaps visit the zoo to admire the indigenous wild and domestic animals. Passing by Prags and Welsberg, we then return to Olang.
