Embark on a cycle journey across the Alps – it's an experience you won't regret and will fondly remember for years to come. From Bavaria through South Tyrol to Lake Garda, you'll be captivated by stunning natural landscapes and must-visit cities. The tour seamlessly blends Bavarian traditions with Mediterranean vibes. In essence, this Eurobike cycling adventure tests your skills over eight days, considering the stage length and route. Simultaneously, indulge in the breathtaking views, rich culture, impressive architecture, and, of course, the delectable local delicacies.

"Griasdi Minga!" – You kick off your cycling vacation in the Bavarian capital, where you gather strength for the days ahead with Kasspatzn, roast pork, and Obatzten. Also, indulge in tasting the local beer varieties before the first stage takes you to Lake Starnberg. Following a restful night in Murnau am Staffelsee, you pedal to Garmisch-Partenkirchen with its beautiful historic cityscape and onward to Mittenwald.

The Leutasch Gorge takes you across the border into Austria, leading you through the picturesque Inntal valley. Near the Reschen Pass, you briefly cross the Swiss border and continue cycling into South Tyrol. Castles, palaces, vineyards, and orchards line the route to Trento. Your tour concludes at Lake Garda – there, you toast with a glass of local wine and treat yourself to a hearty plate of pasta..

  • The Lüftlmalerei in Mittenwald: The tranquil town is considered one of the centers of this traditional art form. In this process, facades are adorned with elaborate paintings. The colorful sequences almost appear as if they are from a storybook. The best way to appreciate these artworks is by taking a stroll through the village.
  • The picturesque city center of Merano: The mountain panoramas in close proximity and the delightful old town give the city in South Tyrol a truly special charm. A visit to the gardens of Trauttmannsdorff Castle is just as recommended as a leisurely stroll along the spa promenade. Get to know the wonderful corners of the city.
  • The glistening Lake Garda: The numerous villas along the shore exude sophistication, while in the lake, water sports enthusiasts can enjoy themselves. Join them and take a refreshing dip in the cool waters. Picturesque villages line the famous body of water, including Sirmione, Riva, and Torbole. For those who haven't had their fill of sporting activities, you can embark on an ascent to Monte Baldo – the highest point around Lake Garda.

During the six stages of this cycling vacation, you will cover a total distance of approximately 500 kilometers. Our sporty cycling tours are specifically designed for trained cyclists who enjoy the challenge of longer stages and uphill climbs.
