Innsbruck - Verona

Along the rivers Eisack and Adige.

Following ancient trade routes, the bicycle route leads from the Tyrolean capital Innsbruck to the Festival City of Verona. Numerous old railroad tracks and dam pathways have been converted into modern cycle paths. Therefore, you can enjoy the impressive towns and mountain views without any traffic. The great cities of Brixen, Bolzano, and Trento provide some cultural highlights on the way! The landscape at the Brenner Pass at 1,370 meters of altitude appears almost alpine and in Brixen, orchards and vineyards dominate the natural scenery. At the Salurner Klause you will enter the "real" Italy with its Mediterranean flora and fauna. On this beautiful bike tour, you will always find a lot of variety - whether nature, culture, or cuisine, this tour has something to offer for everyone!

Itinerary

Welcome briefing and bike fitting. For the rest of the day, we recommend visiting Innsbruck’s famous old town with its City Tower and its “Golden Roof”.

Sample hotel:

Austria Trend Conrgess

After breakfast, we will take you up to the Brenner Pass (by train or minibus). From the small border town Brenner you will cycle on a newly extended bike path, mostly along the river Eisack, first to the little village Gossensass and immediately afterwards to Sterzing, the once mighty city of the Fugger. You will continue your tour to Thumberg, to the beautiful Reifenstein Castle, and via Stilfes and Mittenwald to Franzensfeste with its famous fortress. The bike path continues to the beautiful and quiet Lake Varna, to Varna itself and finally to Brixen, today's destination.

Sample hotel:

Hotel Krone

You will ride your bike through the Dürer town Klausen along the river Eisack to Waidbruck (view of Castle Trostburg). Here, the valley starts geting narrower and leads into the Bolzano basin. The city where two cultures meet is awaiting its visitors with many attractions (Archaeological Museum with Ötzi, the Iceman – free admission with BrixenCard on day of arrival).

Sample hotel:

Hotel Scala Stiegl

Today you will pedal through numerous orchards and vineyards in the area of the South Tyrolean wine route, past many castles and ruins to the wine village Eppan and further to Lake Caldaro. You will stay overnight in the cosy wine town Auer.

Sample hotel:

Villa Groff

Today's route will mainly take you along the beautiful bike path along the Adige river and partially through beautiful orchards to Salurn where the German speaking South Tyrol ends. The dam pathways lead to Trento with its lovely old town.

Sample hotel:

Hotel NH Trento

On this stage you will notice the Adige valley getting narrower and narrower. At the same time the mountain ranges, on which for many centuries impressive castles guarded over one of the most important trade routes, are getting closer and closer. We recommend a visit to Rovereto and the city of Mozart, Ala. Then you will continue your tour on the bike path to Rivalta.

Sample hotel:

Albergo Olivo

On the seventh day, you will cycle on the well-built bike trail along the river Adige to Verona. There are just a few stops along the way.

Sample hotel:

Hotel Palace

Tour character

You will cycle on beautiful bike paths along the Eisack and Adige river valleys. From Verona you will mainyl cycle on quiet side roads. You will be taken up to the Brenner Pass from where you shall descend 1,300 meters in altitude. There are only a few short climbs on Lake Caldaro and before Verona. If you prolong the tour to Venice, the only exhausting part is the Monte Berici before Vicenza (about 400 meters in altitude). This is a bike tour for everyone!

Six Seniors having Fun
Excellent tour for six 70 year olds, some on e-bikes some on non-e-bikes bikes. Daily length of rides left time to explore destinations. Good accommodation with good breakfasts and convenient locations. Bikes performed faultlessly and had very comfortable saddles. Hotels provided secure overnight garaging for the bicycles. Mainly bike path riding provided a sense of safety. Maps provided were easy to follow for our self-guided tour. Tour scenery was spectacular. Eurobikes even provided excellent weather!This was our group's second bike ride in Europe and we heartily recommend the experience.

An Eisack und Etsch
Alles in allem war es eine sehr schöne Fahrradreise. Zum hervorragenden Gesamteindruck hat sicherlich das gute sommerliche Wetter beigetragen. Hinzu kamen die beeindruckend schöne Gebirgslandschaft, die hohe Qualität des Radwegs und die fehlerfreie Organisation durch Eurobike. Die Mieträder waren für Freaks keine Offenbarung, reichten aber für die Anforderungen dieser Reise vollkommen aus und liefen pannenfrei. Die Hotels waren gut bis sehr gut, nur das „Olivo“ in Rivalta senkte den hohen Standard deutlich, glich seine Mängel aber mit „italienischem“ Charme teilweise wieder aus. Einige Etappen sind für erfahrene Radfahrer zu kurz, weniger als 60 km sollten es für uns (noch) nicht sein. Aber man ist ja schließlich in Italien, dem Land des „dolce far niente“.

Sehr geehrter Herr Beckedorf,vielen Dank für die Zusendung Ihres Reisefeedbacks. Dies hilft uns sehr den Service und die Organisation zu verbessern.Es freut uns, dass Sie einen schönen Radurlaub hatten und viele schöne Eindrücke mit nach Hause nehmen konnten.Wir wissen darum, dass das Albergo Olivo das einfachste Quartier auf der Strecke zwischen Innsbruck und Verona ist. Mit diesem Haus arbeiten wir jedoch schon jahrelang (über 10 Jahre) zusammen und haben bisher noch keine negativen Feedbacks dazu erhalten.Speziell die Küche wird normalerweise sehr gelobt, das Restaurant ist in dieser Gegend weitum bekannt. Es tut mir leid, dass Sie mit dieser Unterkunft nicht zufrieden waren.Ich würde mich sehr freuen, Sie beim nächsten Mal wieder auf einer unserer Radtouren begrüßen zu dürfen!Eva-Maria Bamberger
