Biking in South Tyrol: the Dolomites as experienced from the saddle

The Eggental Dolomites can be explored not only on foot, but also – and probably even better – on the saddle of a bike. Biking in South Tyrol is heavenly not only for racing cyclists (such as when on the classic mountain pass roads), but also, and especially, for mountain bikers. You will find everything your heart desires in the Eggental Dolomites, from the wide, gravel forest path to the demanding single trail.

We know what we are talking about – no wonder then that bikers’ hearts are also set racing in our Hotel Gasthof Stern. As a member of Bikehotels Südtirol, we have specialised particularly on the needs of bikers, and with junior partner Paul, we have a trained bike guide at our reception, who has a lot of tour tips up his sleeve – even ones that no one else knows about.

Yet, our range of services goes even beyond tour and insider tips. Far beyond. For example, we offer tours led by local bike guides via the Eggental Bike School, and five times a week at that, and in two different ability groups.


We also have a Bike Info Corner, tour maps, a digital tour planner, and a likewise digital weekly planner, and we offer help procuring a suitable rental bike.

If you’re travelling with your own bike, you can park it safely in one of the lockable boxes in the CCTV-monitored bike garage of the Hotel Gasthof Stern. Smaller repairs can be carried out at the hotel’s own workstand. Tools and lubricants are available there. And so that both bike and rider can always twinkle and shine as well, there is also a separate washing area for the bike as well as a laundry service for the biking clothes.

And since we know, after all, that biking has now long also meant e-biking, we have also taken on board this development. For example, we are happy to help you rent a suitable bike with a powerful electric motor, are on hand with tips on tours and charging stations, and are also glad to help when it comes to planning a tour. After all, in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Dolomites, we are especially delighted by the triumph of e-bikes. Not because we see it as a competitor to the conventional bike, but because it expands the radius of action of the bikers enormously, without them being dependent on a car. Brave new (and quiet) world of the Dolomites.

“We belong to the Terroir.”
