A wonderful panoramic view of Caldaro/Kaltern and the surrounding vineyards is available at certain points on this fantastic tour, which also takes you through lovely forests.
Route: after the ascent from Caldaro (a short part via Mendelstraße street, then via a long gravel track) the extensive trail passage begins. Head downhill over a stony path, which demands the highest degree of concentration, even with good bikers. After about 300 m, take a sharp right onto a narrow trail which winds its way through the wood on rather narrow switchbacks. After crossing the Mendelbahn cable car tunnel, the next trail winds its way on the level or only gently ascending until you reach another gravel road which leads to the Ziegelstadel hut and is signposted “Kalterer Höhenweg”. Truly beautiful forest trails lead up and down from here. Initially, the trail is paved but later turns into a standard trail down to the Kalterer See lake. Then take the cycle path down to Caldaro, with an altitude difference of 180 m, and there you can round off your tour with a glass of wine.
The route starts in the via delle Cantine/Kellereistraße next the wineries in Caldaro/Kaltern. (Infopoint)
