Along the Etschradroute Cycle Track from Marlengo to Malles
Family cycling tour through the valley Vinschgau/Val Venosta from Marling/Marlengo to Mals/Malles.
From the Marling/Marlengo church square (altitude 363 m) follow the Nörderstr./Via Tramontana street towards Algund/Lagundo as far as the Forst Brewery. Cross the main road and turn left onto the Forststr./Via Birreria street before taking a right turn onto the wooden bridge crossing the Etsch/Adige river. Turn left and follow the road up towards the valley Vinschgau/Val Venosta.
The approximately 60 km tarred road follows the Etsch/Adige, past fruit orchards against a picturesque setting of snow-capped peaks, fields and forests, villages and vineyards. The route ascends to Mals/Malles (at 1,099 m altitude) in the upper Vinschgautal/Venosta Valley.
The entire route, which can also be followed on the way down, has an altitude variance of about 700 m.
At the Marling/Marlengo church square follow Nörderstr./Via Tramontana street towards Algund/Lagundo to the Forst Brewery. Cross the Etsch/Adige river and take the Meran/Merano – Venosta Valley cycle track.
