Tour 7

Tour 7 – Olang – Sand in Taufers Ahrntal

From Mitterolang we cycle towards Rasen.

At the Gasthof Dolomiten we turn left onto the cycle path and from then on we carry on following the signs to “Bruneck” (Brunico).

After a ride of about 9 km on a truly peaceful and enjoyable path, we reach the outskirts of Bruneck.

For anyone interested in astrology, this is the start of the “Planetenweg” (planet trail); for the rest, a trip to the old town of Bruneck is recommended, or you can simply sit under an old chestnut tree sipping a cappuccino.

Now we leave Bruneck and head north.

On the outskirts of the town we once again find the cycle path, which takes us to the wide, flat Taufertal.

We cycle past fields and meadows, watching the farmers at work. From far away we can see the mighty Burg Taufers (Taufers Castle), situated above the town of the same name, the end of today’s tour.
