Passo della Mendola e Passo Palade
What to see in Trentino? The attractions suggested by Trentino in Moto for the holiday in the mountain.
The 1,363 m high Passo della Mendola is situated in the south of Bolzano and can be reached via Appiano and Caldaro.
The Passo della Mendola between Mt Penegal in the north and Mt Roen in the south connects the Oltradige with the Val di Non, in other words South Tyrol and the Trentino. The street which leads on the Passo della Mendola is a route which is very popular with cyclists and bikers, as it is characterised by its 17 sharp bends as well a great panoramic view.
The Mendola Funicular connect the locality of Gries (Bolzano) with the pass.
In winter there is the small Mendola/Ruffrè skiing area.
Mendel and Gampen pass tourThe classic among the road bike tours of southern South Tyrol leads after a leisurely climb to the Mendel pass (1,363m above sea level), where a spectacular panorama of the Dolomite Mountains opens out. Subsequently the tour leads slightly downhill into the neighbouring region of Trentino and continues leisurely uphill to the Gampen pass (1,518m above sea level) and back again to South Tyrol. Then it goes downhill with a view of the spa town of Meran and on into the Etsch valley. At the end of the tour there are still 200 metres in altitude difference before the starting point is reached. Do you still want to climb higher? You can reach the panoramic mountain of Penegal at 1,737m above sea level from the Mendel pass via a steep climb. Print the tour
