Miles of roads and trails to travel along

Dobbiaco and the Dolomites are a genuine paradise for keen cyclists, with countless routes running through woodlands and valleys, alongside rivers, mountain streams and around lakes and some that reach the most famous peaks and breath-taking passes. The Union is the ideal jumping-off point for mountain bike outings for families and beginners as well as expert cyclists plus the adrenalin rush of enduro trails.

Cycling on the Dobbiaco-Cortina cycle trail

The easy trail that leaves just a few steps from the hotel, near the Nordic Arena, follows the route of the old railway line. Leaving from Dobbiaco the trail runs alongside Dobbiaco Lake and Landro Lake then reaches the Cimabanche Pass, after which it heads down to Cortina. A trail suitable for everyone intent on total immersion in the natural landscape, enjoying the stunning views over the Dolomites.

Cycling on the Dobbiaco-Lienz cycle trail

The cycle route, also suitable for families, leaves from Dobbiaco and heads gently downhill following the course of the River Drava towards Lienz, the capital of East Tyrol. As you follow the route you can take a delightful break in Heinfels to sample the delicious sweet treats from the Loacker works and, once you get to Lienz, pay a visit to the Bruck Castle Museum, the historic residence of the Counts of Görz. You can come back in comfort on the train, leaving either from Lienz or other intermediate stations on the way.

A network of cycle trails runs the entire length of  Val Pusteria with no steep gradients. There are 105km of trails running from Rio di Pusteria to Lienz in the Tyrol than can be travelled in just a few days. Our staff will give you all the information you need, including maps, for your outings on two wheels.
