Etschradroute Cycle Route on the Via Claudia Augusta near Naturno

Relaxed cycling with the entire family

From Naturno/Naturns, it is easy to get to the nearby Etschradroute cycle route via bicycle. The Vinschger Bahn railway takes anyone who wants to travel the whole route from the starting point to Malles/Mals, and with the bus to Resia/Reschen. From there, the Etschradroute cycle route continues for 80km along the Etsch river on a slight downward incline, from the Reschenpass mountain pass in Alta Val Venosta/Obervinschgau Valley to the spa town of Merano/Meran.
The cycle path itself is already a piece of culture: as a historic main traffic artery between Italy and Augsburg, it is part of the ancient Roman road Via Claudia Augusta, which was completed around 47 AD.
Already at Reschen/Resia, the first eye-catcher along the cycle path rises out of the mirror-smooth water: a church tower commemorates the damming of the lake in 1950, when the village of Altgraun and parts of Reschen were flooded.
With a view of the mighty Ortler massif, the route descends at a brisk pace from Reschen and just as quickly the Via Claudia Augusta takes cyclists from one sight to the next: to the smallest town in South Tyrol Glurns/Glorenza, passing the Churburg and the internationally famous Lasa marble or to Messner Mountain Museum at Juval Castle.

In addition, the bike taxi offered by the Naturno Tourist Office brings cyclists to their desired starting destinations, such as the medieval town of Glorenza/Glurns. Twice a week, bike enthusiasts can also join guided bike tours offered by the Ötzi Bike Academy.
