Itinerary

Bavaria’s state capital awaits its visitors with numerous sights (English Garden, town hall, ‚Hofbräuhaus‘,…).

From Munich through the Forstenrieder Park onto Lake Starnberger See. From Starnberg on the cycle path directly along the lakeside to Ambach or onwards to Bernried. The lake tempts you with crystal-clear waters and the views are fabulous onto the surrounding mountains.

Initially a cycle tour past Lake Riegsee to Murnau. Onwards through the nature reserve Murnauer Moos (Central Europe’s largest marsh area) and through unspoilt nature following the river Loisach to Garmisch Partenkirchen. Here you have the option of a ride with the Zugspitzbahn up to an altitude of 2962 m (autonomously). From up there you enjoy a stupendous view over the Alps.

Today you proceed along the beautifully developed cycle path all the way to the river Isar. You cycle through the sunny high mountain valley with marvellous panoramic views onto the Karwendel- and Wettersteingebirge-mountains to Mittenwald. Here we highly recommend a break and to take a stroll throughh the village with its Lüftlmalerei-painted houses. You then continue in a spectacular fashion through the Leutaschklamm-ravine to Austria. You cycle along the Leutasch-stream through the stunningly beautiful valley all the way into your Day Finish.

Today you cycle over into the Inn-river valley. You leave Leutasch on a country road leading you on gently hilly terrain before an eight-kilometre long descent takes you to Telfs. You cycle on the former towpath along the river Inn and so reach Stams with its Baroque Cistercian monastery. Then via Haiming it is not far to Imst, the so-called „North Tyrolean Merano‘.

Today, you will cycle along the river Inn, past the monastery Zams to Landeck. A bus will take you to Nauders from where you will cycle less than 100 metres in altitude uphill to the mountain pass Reschenpass. From there, you will cycle downhill to Lake Reschensee and continue on minor roads to Mals (many towers in the centre) or to Burgeis at the foot of the castle Marienburg. 

Your day starts with a trip to Glurns (perfectly preserved medieval city walls). Then, you will cycle via the Montani ruins, through Schlanders, 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.

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. You will stay overnight in the cosy wine town, Auer.

On the sixth day, you will cycle mostly along the river Adige, and partly through orchards to Salurn, where the German speaking South Tyrol ends. The famous Trentino vineyards are located next to the dam ways. These ways lead you to Trento with its lovely old town, cathedral and castle Buonconsiglio.

Today, you will cycle on bike paths along the river Adige via the old Tyrolean border town of Rovereto to Mori. From here, the route leads westward to Lake Garda. In Mori you will taste the world famous pistachio ice-cream in the Gelateria Bologna. After a short climb onto Passo S. Giovanni (150 metres), you will head down to the lake to Torbole or Riva.

Tour character

You cycle on marvellous cycle paths and little side roads and only on very short sections on main roads. Nearly every day there are small ascents to be tackled. The Reschen-pass will be bypassed via a bus transfer, then follows a descent of approx. 1200 metres in altitude to Merano. The route is mainly asphalted, a few longer sections also on well-maintained dirt roads.
