This queen of Eppan’s tours for mountain bikers leads with its about 5,000m altitude difference along the chasm on the Mendel ridge of the linguistic border between the Trentino and South Tyrol. While the landscape climbs leisurely from the Trentino side, it drops vertically on the South Tyrol side, in some places by more than 600 metres. The Roen Mountain, “only” 2,116m above sea level, forms the highest point of the technically challenging Grenzkamm tour, with its varied sections, secluded single trails and three crowning peak adventures.

After a long climb, this difficult tour brings you to the Gampenpass at 1,518m above sea level and, via Schönblick, to the Gantkofel at 1,866m above sea level. From this first vantage point on the border with Trentino it continues via the Prinzwiesen and the Furglauschlucht as far as the Penegal at 1,737m above sea level. Over the Mendel pass, crossed at a right angle to the classic section to the Monte Roen, you reach the mountain cabin “Malga Romeno”, or rather the “Überetscher Hütte”. From there with a few sections where you push your bike on to the Monte Roen at 2,116m above sea level. Follow the classic Monte Roen Tour as far as the Grauner Joch, from there continue to the Fenner Joch. Descend then on a single trail as far as Fennberg. Refreshing tip: take a dip in the idyllic Lake Fenner. Then continue along the single trail to Margreid. Back to Eppan via Tramin and the trails of the Wine Route.
This is recommended as a three-day tour. Only the fittest and strongest bikers can do this tour in one day. It can also be done in two days with the shuttle to the Gampen pass. Overnight in one of our original and unspoilt mountain huts.
