Tour 8

Tour 8 – Olang – Franzensfeste

This time we set off on our bikes directly from the “rent and go” bike hire site in Olang.

The path takes us on a gentle downwards slope over fields, through woods and tunnels right to Bruneck.

There we have the opportunity to visit Schloss Bruneck (Bruneck Castle) or the Volkskundenmuseum (folklore museum) in Dietenheim, where we learn about the way people lived in the green valley in past centuries.

On we go through the market town of St. Lorenzen to Ehrenburg, where the Schloss of the same name invites us to visit.

The next lap takes us over a mostly flat route along the Rienz to Vintl.

After a fortifying stop at the “Pit Stop” comes the last part of the tour to Mühlbach, where we can cool down with a dip in the open-air pool or stroll through the narrow streets of the market town.

Afterwards we board the train and return to Olang in comfort.
