Tips for bikers in Vinschgau

Tips for bikers in Vinschgau

If you spend your holidays in Vinschgau and if you love cycling, you will look forward to a large selection of beautiful bike tours and professional bike schools as well as to great infrastructures regarding bike transport, shuttle services and bike rentals.

Bike transport in & along Vinschgau railway line

Basically, transporting your bikes with Vinschgau railway is allowed with a corresponding ticket. In case of a big number of cyclists, there is no guarantee that the bike is transported – despite valid tickets – just as in other local trains in South Tyrol.

In order to avoid such difficulties at Vinschgau railway line, there is a separate bike transport by truck from 29th April to 31st October 2022, along the road from Meran to Mals. As the railway section between Meran and Töll is currently closed due to extensive construction work, please note the following information:

Section Meran-Töll

There is currently a rail replacement service with buses due to the track closure. From 29th April to 31st October 2022, there will also be a separate bicycle transport service with 2 trips daily at lunchtime. If there is a lack of demand, the service could be reduced in the low season.

Departure times of the bike transport at Meran railway station:

  • 12:10 pm
  • 2:10 pm

Section Meran-Mals

There will be a separate bike transport with 6 trips per day from 29th April to 30th September 2022, and with 5 trips per days in October 2022.

Departure times of the bike transport at Meran railway station:

  • 9:16 am
  • 10:16 am
  • 11:16 am
  • 3:16 pm
  • 4:16 pm
  • 5:16 pm (not available in October)

The bikes can be dropped off at the train station in Meran at the earliest 30 minutes and at the latest 5 minutes before the departure of the shuttle. The bike can then be collected from the train stations of Naturns, Schlanders, Spondinig or Mals. For larger groups, it is possible to book the bike transport by telephone (+39 0473 201500) between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm.

As well, Vinschgau offers different private bike shuttles that can travel with a minimum number of persons to certain times to selected destinations. These private shuttles also offer an individual shuttle service.

Through Vinschgau by rental bike

With the combined ticket bikemobil Card, you can rent a bike for one day at numerous rental stations by Südtirol Rad, Papin Sport and Südtirolbike in the entire holiday region of South Tyrol: This allows you to combine a bike excursion and means of public transport perfectly in the warm months of the year.

Please note that most bike rentals are closed over lunchtime and that not all have identical opening hours.
