About me
Hi, my name is Sabine and I’ve been working as a Marketing and Social Media Manager at Südtirol Privat for some four years now. If my colleagues were to describe me, they’d probably tell you that I’m an open-minded, cheerful and adventurous girl – and an absolute fan of South Tyrol! And YES, I am! I love being out and about, zooming down the pistes or roaming through the great outdoors, and the camera is my most faithful companion. Sharing my best experiences and most wonderful impressions with you is something I truly enjoy: read all about my adventures in South Tyrol in the "Sabine on tour" section! What I like most about our lovely little country? The fantastic sunrises and sunsets in the mountains, of course. What about you? Come along and join me on my tour through the beautiful landscapes of South Tyrol!
The Pustertal cycle path winds along the Rienz and Drau rivers from Mühlbach near Brixen to Lienz in East Tyrol. An ideal route for families and leisurely (e-bike) cyclists.

Along the Pustertal cycle path from Mühlbach to Lienz.

The Pustertal cycle path, also known as ‘Pusterbike’, offers something for everyone. Depending on your mood, you can cycle along the Rienz/Rienza and Drau/Drava rivers, exploring parts of the route, or experience the entire 105-kilometre route from Mühlbach/Rio di Pusteria to Lienz in East Tyrol, Austria, over several days. This varied cycling tour is superbly signposted and, thanks to the easy course and moderate gradients, a true cycling paradise for families with children, cycling beginners and relaxed e-bikers!
The best part: the next Pustertal train station is never far away. If you run out of steam, the train will take you back to your starting point or on to the next stop. So there’s nothing to lose: jump on your bike and get going! What are you waiting for?


From Mühlbach to Bruneck
On your marks, get set, go! A popular starting point is the centre of the charming village of Mühlbach. The route leads past the Mühlbacher Klause, an imposing old border fortress, and follows the river Rienz through meadows and woods until it reaches Ehrenburg with its striking castle. From there, the cycle path leads past the mouth of the Gadertal valley before continuing through Pflaurenz/Floronzo and St. Lorenzen/San Lorenzo di Sebato to the centre of Bruneck/Brunico. After about 25 kilometres, you will have reached your destination for the day; you can enjoy a leisurely stroll through the small streets of Bruneck, the main town of Pustertal/Val Pusteria.


From Kronplatz to Hochpustertal
The next stage leads from Bruneck to Innichen/San Candido. The almost 33-kilometre-long cycle path leads past the well-known towns of the Kronplatz/Plan de Corones holiday region, Olang/Valdaora and Welsberg/Monguelfo, then crosses the entrance to the Pragser Tal valley and takes you to Niederdorf/Villa Bassa. Don’t forget to take a break! The view of the Pragser Dolomites is truly spectacular. Your destination for the day is Toblach/Dobbiaco – or you can continue onwards to the lively town of Innichen with its historical centre.


The Pusterbike becomes the Drau cycle path
If you want, you can now take the Drau cycle path and cycle over 50 kilometres onwards to Lienz. It’s almost all downhill, and the combination of lovely meadows, rugged Dolomite cliffs, historic villages and refreshing riverside forests makes this section of the route particularly varied and popular. Lienz awaits you with plenty of culture and southern flair. From here, you can take the train back to your starting point.

The Pustertal bike specialists have even more tips and tour information in store for you.
