Car-free vacations in South Tyrol

 Friday, October 21, 2022 


When discussing vacations in South Tyrol, sustainable tourism and green transportation are currently essential themes nowadays. The emphasis is on sustainability, which includes having a vacation that is both environmentally friendly and car-free while also protecting the surrounding area.

Here are some car-free vacations in South Tyrol for you to explore.

Taking the bus or train to explore South Tyrol
With the help of the local buses, trains, and lift facilities, you may travel to practically anywhere in South Tyrol, including towns, villages, and mountain pastures. The nicest part is that BrixenCard subscribers are entitled to free public transportation. All you have to do is validate your card before each trip. South Tyrol offers a variety of transfer services that will take you directly to your lodging and, at the conclusion of your stay, back to the station. You will be transported to your accommodation by the “Südtirol Transfer” shuttle from the train or bus terminal. The online reservation system “Book your shuttle,” which provides airport transfers and shuttle services, is another novelty. Individual transfers from and to South Tyrol can be reserved and booked more easily online.

Exploring Mt. Plose with bus and cable car
The bus gets you up in front of Gerharts every 30 minutes and takes you to the valley station of the Plose cable car in Sant’Andrea, making it incredibly simple to get to the top of Mt. Plose. You ride the cable car to the peak from there. Both the bus ride and one daily roundtrip ticket on the Plose cable car are free for BrixenCard subscribers.

Nature at its purest
Numerous hiking trails extend for kilometres through this breathtaking area. Enjoy the South Tyrolean sunshine, the crisp mountain air, and the breathtaking panoramic views with your family and friends. The spectacular mountain backdrop, which includes the Texelspitze 3318m, Roteck 3337m, Hohe Weisse 3281m, Hohe Wilde 3481m, Karlesspitze 3462m, and Hintere Schwärze 3624m, encircles the valley like a natural amphitheatre. Stay at the lodging of your choice to enjoy the very best in South Tyrolean hospitality!

A car-free village in South Tyrol!
A few farms in the Alps used to make up the tiny community of Plan, a hamlet of Moos in Passeier at 1,600 metres above sea level. With the sustainable choices that the town chose to make, it is now one of the richest municipalities of South Tyrol. 220 inhabitants, 24 children, a school, several hotels and restaurants, a shop and some craft workshops today enrich the tiny village today. All students and the elderly ride for free, and those who pay based on the number of kilometres travelled find public transportation to be quite handy. Plan made a brave decision a few years ago by concentrating on renewable mobility and keeping automobiles out of the town. Children playing ball and people walking now fill the streets and squares of Moos in Passeier. Rarely passing cars are those of the locals and visitors who have access codes that allow them to get past the gates. Old wooden farmhouses transport you back in time and people are welcoming and frequently dressed in traditional attire, the air is clean, and during the summer the only ambient noise is that of cows strolling across the fields. This quaint little village is a wonderful respite from the city hustles, so do take a vacation here for an offbeat getaway!
