Section A1 - From Sterzing/Vipiteno to Bruneck/Brunico

The 1st section of option A goes from the old merchant town of Sterzing/Vipiteno via the marshland of Sterzinger Moos, winds around Mittewald and goes down through Valle Isarco, before finally turning into the Pustertal Valley near the impressive Franzensfeste fortress. Follow the Pustertal Cycle Path past the ruins of Mühlbacher Klause, along the Rienz river. Shortly after the village of St. Lorenzen at the start of the Gadertal Valley, you reach the medieval town of Bruneck/Brunico.

The old merchant town of Sterzing/Vipiteno is the most northerly town in South Tyrol and has an impressive Alpine charm. The Zwölferturm tower, stretching up to the sky in the centre of the town, is its landmark monument and is well known further afield, too.

Bruneck/Brunico is a lively town with a range of bars and restaurants and the mood there is cheerful and easy-going. The local landmark mountain is Kronplatz, the best-known ski resort in South Tyrol.
