Alp Loop Lodging

Dear Adventure Riders,
My husband and I are planning a loop through the Alps and are looking for suggestions on places to stay. Our itinerary, roughly, (starting in Heidelberg, where we are renting the motorcycle): Titisee, Alpenzell district/Schwagalp, Bormio, Merano, Cortina d’Apresso, Imst, and somewhere between Imst and Heidelberg. We have benefitted greatly from advice on this listserve and appreciate all the sharing that goes on; we will share back when we return!

Renting from Stefan?

Bormio and Merano are places that I've just ridden past, but in the Cortina d'Ampezzo area - I usually stay in either Arabba or Corvara which puts me in the middle of the riding area. If I'm looking to treat myself, the Hotel Evaldo in Arabba is my absolute favorite.

Wander over to the Alpine Roads website for lots of specific info.

Not knowing the perimeters of the kind of places you want to stay at, take a look at this site: http://www.booking.com/

I've used it extensively, never had an issue.

Just to be aware the prices on Knopf tours DO NOT include daily insurance of $13 US dollars a day. I don't believe I found the additional cost listed anywhere on the site.

Adds significantly to the rental price.

Yes indeed we are renting from Stefan, and he has been very helpful. We are planning our own tour, though. Thanks for the advice. We'll let folks know what we end up doing...some decisions might be made on the fly!

Great advice! FIM Europe [http://fim-europe.com/index.php/touring/uem-hotels] also pointed me to this page. For some reason it's all in Italian, though. Thanks goodness for "translate"!

On the first page, there is the 'search' layout. Just above that you'll see a tiny icon in the form of national flags. Click there and choose the country/language.

If you decide to do The Großglockner ( a couple of hours northish from Cortina) then we are only an hour away

I second what MichaelJ says and consider stopping in or around Arabba. Cortina can be disappointing in the summer.

Should you find yourself near Bruneck/Brunico Hotel Reipertinger Hof is motorcycle friendly.
And of course we will expect many photos of your trip.

i just came back from Bormio and Arabba. If you still didn't book, I'll give you the names I stayed in. Very nice and relatively not expensive

Enzianhütte , reachable with an easy gravel road from Brenner pass


Rifugio Costapiana , over Valle di Cadore

Our stops are detailed in my ride report - see my signature.....

The Hotel Savoia on top of Pordoi was the best bang for buck of our trip last year.
