Enjoy South Tyrol by e-bike: the entire family can easily travel from the Mediterranean spa town of Merano/Meran along the local Alpine terrain or through apple orchards to the South Tyrolean capital of Bolzano/Bozen. Thanks to the electric pedal assist, even beginners can master long distances and sportive mountain rides. Along the way, traditional mountain inns invite you to take a break and sample typical South Tyrolean dishes.
The free bike rental service on Via Piave/Piavestrasse street in Merano offers modern e-bikes. The use of e-bikes is free of charge for one hour; after that at a fee. For the rental of e-bikes, the presentation of a document of identification and a 50.00 Euro deposit are required.
E-bike tours for a fee are offered as "Sissi Tours" (held under the guidance of experienced, knowledgeable guides) where biking in comfort is the main focus – including a stop at quaint farms and the opportunity to taste rural specialties on the way. These tours also offer a glimpse into the culture of South Tyrol and the way of life of the host farmers.
