Family cycling tour through the Etschtal Valley to the city Bolzano/Bozen.
Starting at the Marling/Marlengo church square follow the main road to Lana/Lana. At the first traffic light, turn into Kellereistr./Via Cantina street and then into Lebenbergstr./Via Monte Leone street, just opposite the new winery Meran/Merano. After a few hundred meters, make a left turn on to a dirt road on the Gampenstr./Via Palade street towards Tscherms/Cermes. Just before the village church, turn left onto the cycle track through the fruit orchards. The track is mostly on dust roads leading through spectacular terrain, as far as the Sigmundskron/Firmiano intersection just before Bolzano/Bozen. Then take the road to Bolzano/Bozen (2 km away), or head towards Eppan/Appiano and Kaltern/Caldaro.
At about 25 km, this cycling route can be completed in about 2 hours without any significant variance in altitude.
