Skilfully taking the turns, picking up speed on the straights and throttling down again for the next curve: motorcyclists love South Tyrol's winding mountain roads and passes through the breathtaking mountain scenery. Hanswirt offers its guests two Vespas for them to take a ride in true Italian style.
Ride a motorcycle once – you will be a motorcyclist forever. It is the sound that makes itself heard. Connoisseurs know the type of bike from the chugging, snorting, blowing and humming of the engine. Some fulfil their dreams of speed on two wheels at a young age, then give it up upon starting a family. But sooner or later bike fever returns, and with it the longing for this sense of freedom.
Stop at the top of the mountain pass, enjoy the breathtaking panorama, take off your helmet and let the mountain breeze from the nearby glacier run through your hair. Motorcyclists know such moments of perfect happiness.
Riding a Vespa: what could be more Italian? The Vespa means summer and lifestyle in one. Born from necessity, the scooter was only intended as a cheap everyday way to get around, but has nowadays gained cult status. Enrico Piaggio first began selling the Vespa 98, the mother of all scooters, in 1946. From then on the worldwide success of this economical and easy-to-ride two-wheeler was assured, a popularity that continues today.
Whether red, yellow or sky blue, old or new: riding a Vespa is also a popular pastime in South Tyrol. There are numerous clubs, regular meetings and even Vespa parties. The Hanswirt owns two of these cult scooters for its guests: put on your helmet and off you go, shopping in Meran, eating ice-cream in Naturns or visiting the Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle. Have fun!
