Autumn at the Mendola Pass

The road up the Mendola Pass winds like a long snake amid South Tyrol's bright autumn landscape. Built in the second half of the 19th century, the pass road connects the Oltradige area in South Tyrol with the Val di Non valley in Trentino. Below the rocky terrain, 17 hairpin bends and breathtaking views delight cyclists and motorcyclists all year round. The pass itself lies at 1,363 metres and has retained the nostalgic charm of the Belle Epoque. Back then, it was a popular holiday destination for the wealthy and famous people from the world of art and culture.
