A quick, almost flat section again through vineyards and orchards, then a short climb up to the picturesque Lake Caldaro / Kalterer See first, and then to the village of the same name, in the area of the famous Wine Route / Weinstraße. We quickly descend along a short but charming cycle path on the old track of a disused railway. After smoothly passing through the city of Bolzano / Bozen, we enter the Isarco Valley / Eisacktal, again on a cycle path. First alongside the main road, then on a comfortable cycle path, also following the old track of a disused railway, which, in the initial, more recessed section, offers us beautiful illuminated tunnels. The landscape begins to become decidedly more mountainous, although vineyards and orchards still dominate. We cross Colma / Kollmann, pass Ponte Gardena / Waidbruck and soon reach the charming little village of Chiusa / Klausen.
