Ochsengarten Bolzano Ponte di Legno
Published: 26/10/2019
Day 4 we drive from Ochsengarten to Ponte di Legno, a drive of 327 km with many beautiful mountain passes such as Timmelsjoch, Jaufenpass, Penserjoch, Mendelpass, Brezer Joch and Passo del Tonale. All passes are indicated with route points.

Note that there are spicy turns, ascents and descents, so driving experience is required and do not do as starting rider.

The first stop is at RP2 the Top Mountain Motorcycle Museum and restaurant, you can visit the museum, eat and drink something, buy souvenirs, enjoy the view and buy your ticket for the Timmelsjoch (Passo Rombo) (14 € for motorcycle and rider) ), you will also receive a ticket and sticker.

The Timmelsjoch a very nice pass to ride, good road surface and beautiful views. Along the way there are several places of interest (see the link for more information).

The next pass is the Jaufenpass (Passo Giovo), another challenging walk through beautiful surroundings. Really fantastic to drive here. Pay attention to other road users, the roads are narrow and not every bend is well-arranged. Take your time and stop occasionally to enjoy the view.

The next pass is the Penser Joch (Passo di Pennes) and from Bolzano we take the Mendelpass (Passo della Mendola), yes it becomes boring but again a succession of turns through the beautiful Italian mountains, on the way we pause in Mendola.

We continue our way to our final destination Ponte di Legno via the Brezer Joch (Forcella di Brez) and Passo del Tonale, where we stop briefly for a photo. This road runs partly along the fast-flowing river Torrente Vermigliana.

The end point is our Hotel Garni Pregnà. A neat hotel with a cozy bar and good breakfast. Motorbikes can be parked in the garage for a fee. Evening food is not served but there are restaurants within walking distance.

This route is worth 5 stars.

About this region
Tyrol (; historically the Tyrole; German: Tirol [tiˈʁoːl] (listen); Italian: Tirolo) is a historical region in the Alps—in Northern Italy and western Austria. The area was historically the core of the County of Tyrol, part of the Holy Roman Empire, Austrian Empire and Austria-Hungary, from its formation in the 12th century until 1919. In 1919, following World War I and dissolution of Austria-Hungary, it was divided into two modern administrative parts through the Treaty of Saint-Germain-en-Laye: State of Tyrol: formed through the merger of North and East Tyrol, as part of Austria Region of Trentino-Alto Adige: at that time still with Souramont (Cortina d'Ampezzo, Livinallongo del Col di Lana and Colle Santa Lucia) and the municipalities Valvestino, Magasa and Pedemonte, seized in 1918 by the Kingdom of Italy, and thus since 1946 part of the Italian Republic.With the founding of the European region Tyrol-South Tyrol-Trentino the area has its own legal entity since 2011 in the form of a European Grouping for Territorial Cooperation.
