View from Ritten of the Dolomite panorama

Austria, Switzerland, Italy: this cycle tour not only takes you through three countries, but also along countless attractions. Enjoy the views of high mountain massifs, magnificent castles and glittering lakes. Cycle towards the sun and, after the many kilometres of cycling, treat yourself to the wonderful culinary delights, ranging from hearty Tyrolean delicacies to light Mediterranean dishes. Accompanied by regional wine - have we whetted your appetite yet?

In Innsbruck, visit the Alpine Zoo or take the train up to the Hafelekar, where a breathtaking view of the city on the Inn awaits - and then you're off! After a detour to charming Imst, the Inn Cycle Path leads to the Reschenpass. The uphill passage is quite challenging but rewards all visitors with a wonderful view. The next day, the tour continues to the beautiful spa town of Merano.

Day 5 of the tour offers several attractions, including the vast orchards and vineyards, the 85-metre-high "cathedral in the countryside", St. Pauls and the unspoilt Montiggl lakes. Via Bolzano and Trento you finally reach Lake Garda, where you can enjoy the famous "Dolce vita" before departure.

  • The Golden Roof in Innsbruck: Emperor Maximilian once enjoyed the view of the city centre and its people from Innsbruck's landmark. Today, it is not only worth looking up at the Golden Roof but also strolling through the lively city centre.
  • Magnificent panorama of the Ortler: According to legend, the 3,905-metre-high Ortler is a fossilised giant. But it's not the only one - around 70 other peaks in the mountain massif of the same name pass the 3,000-metre mark. Simply wow!
  • The Passer Promenade in Merano: As a health resort, the delightful South Tyrolean town already attracted the nobility to South Tyrol in Empress Sissi's time. Stroll in the footsteps of the Austrian monarch along Merano's most traditional promenade and marvel at the elaborate flora.
  • Olive groves on Lake Garda: Especially along the southern shore of the lake, there are extensive olive groves that exude a very special flair. With a bottle of the high-quality oil, you can take a piece of Italy home with you!

The stages, which can be up to 90 km long, require a certain basic level of fitness and a desire for challenges. The great routes along the Adige Cycle Path are complemented by paths that take you directly through the vineyards and lakes of the region.

Your day starts towards Glurns (perfectly preserved medieval city walls). Then, you will cycle via the Montani ruins, through Silandro, down to Merano. On your way, you will come across some pretty castles (mountaineer Reinhold Messner’s castle Juval) and you will get marvellous views of the impressive mountain massif Ortlermassiv and the mountain pass Stilfserjoch. Since 2004, the Venosta train (Vinschgaubahn) has been operating again between Mals and Merano. You can almost always take this train to travel a part of your journey.

Sample hotel: Villa Laurus

Today’s stage will take you via Lana (Schnatterpeck Altar) and through numerous orchards and vineyards in the area of the South Tyrolean Wine Road, past many fortresses, castles, and ruins such as Hocheppan (famous frescos), to Lake Caldaro. Leaving the charming wine town behind you, you will cycle via the Montiggler lakes, past Sigmundskron to Bolzano (arcades, “Ötzi” museum).

Sample hotel: Mondschein

From Bolzano, you will cycle along the river Isarco and later along the river Adige on a beautiful bike path that is rich with orchards to Salorno, where the German speaking part of South Tyrol ends and afterwards to the historic centre of Trento accompanied by the vineyards of “Teroldego” vines.
