You cycle on well signposted cycle paths from Munich to Bad Tölz through the Zillertal and on the Brenner Pass towards Longarone, Treviso and Venice. For 12 days, you will devote yourself to pure cycling pleasure and ride along the Isar and Inn cycle paths through Bavaria and Tyrol before you switch to old trade routes in South Tyrol.

Highlights of the cycle tour from Munich to Venice at a glance:

  • From the Alps to the sea: Over 12 days and with each push of the pedals you watch the landscape change. The cycling holiday begins in mountainous and alpine regions and ends with Mediterranean lagoons.
  • Mountain panoramas as far as the eye can see: In Bavaria, Tyrol and South Tyrol you will be accompanied on the daily stages by the most famous peaks in the world. The Dolomites and especially the three peaks at Cortina d’Ampezzo are real highlights of the entire route.

Useful information about the 12-day cycling holiday

In the next stages, you will cover between 30 and 75 kilometres a day to Venice. In Bavaria and the Puster Valley you should expect several climbs, so a good basic condition is advantageous.

Tour information and the handing out of the bakes. This is Bavaria’s county capital and it is waiting for you with its many tourist attractions (English gardens, town hall, Hofbräuhaus…)

Cycling along river Isar you leave Munich. On your way you will pass monasteries, authentic Bavarian villages as well as the beautiful area along the river Isar until you reach Bad Tölz, which was renowned for building rafts in former times. Especially the historic centre of the city is worth seeing.


Starting in Bad Tölz along the river Isar again until you reach lake Sylversteinsee. This tour leads you through the national park Karwendel where you cross the Austrian border. You will reach lake Achensee, where you could go on a boat ride. You will be accommodated either in Maurach or in Jenbach, depending on the availability

Next you head speedily into the Inn valley. You cycle along the Inn cycle path past Schwaz (Silberschaubergwerk) to Wattens. Our tip: visit the charming Swarovski crystal world! Then you continue via the saline town “Hall” with its historical Münzerturm along the steeply towering north chain mountains of the Tyrolean state capital. The historical old town with the golden roof and the modern Hungerburgbahn are impressive contrasts in this town.

After breakfast, you will travel up the Brennerpass (by train or by minibus). From the small border village called Brenner, you will cycle along a newly built cycle path mainly along the river Eisack until you get to the small village Gossensass and then into the previously powerful Fugger town, Sterzing. You then cycle downhill to Franzensfeste with its famous fortress. From here the cycle path runs to the East until you get to Mühlbach, the entrance of the southern Tyrolean Puster valley. 

Today you will follow the cycle path along the Rienz through the Mühlbacher Klause and then continue until you get to the lower Puster valley and Bruneck with its very interesting Museum of Popular Art. The Olanger Stausee (reservoir) looks deep green on your way into the Hochpustertal. You then cycle feeling exhilarated to Toblach. The mountains around the Dolomites are impressive and you can discover more about them in the nature park house.

A short stage today will take you past lake Toblach and lake Dürren towards the South. The most famous Dolomite peaks, “the three peaks of Laveredo” are in constant sight. You will get to Corina d’Ampezzo where you will be staying tonight by cycling through the Höhlensteintal. The former mountain village also carries the name “Queen of the Dolomites”. Here you can enjoy the breath-taking view of the surrounding mountains. It’s not a surprise that this small district already developed in the 19th Century as a sophisticated holiday location.

The old railway line was converted into a cycle path, which you will be following today through the Boitetal valley until you get to Pieve di Cadore. In the historical town, you will get to the river Piave, which you will then follow South. Beautiful views will accompany on your way to Longarone, the youngest town on your tour. Due to a rockfall in the reservoir, this place was flooded and destroyed just 50 years ago. In the late 1960s, the rebuilding of the town began and there is now a museum there to remember the catastrophe.

Continue cycle along the river Piave until you get to Belluno (a trip to „little Venice in the mountains“ is possible). You will leave the river and cycle along the edge of Lago di Santa Croce, which is the second largest lake in Venetia after lake Garda. It is also a popular destination due to its turquoise blue water and its sandy banks. You will however continue on to the historical Vittorio Veneto until you get then get to Conegliano. Magnificent villas and palaces still characterise the view of this town today.

Now you finally leave the Alps behind you and cycle through the fertile plane. Everything that tastes good is cultivated here. Special attention is however paid to the famous “raddichio”, the famous red salad from Treviso. The town also gets called the „città delle aque“ due to its branched canals in the centre. Take a walk through the waterways and discover lots of little cosy places.

Next, the beautiful cycle path will take you along the river Sile. This river is only 95km long, but it is famous because it was mentioned in the Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri. Now your destination is getting close. Quiet side roads will lead you to your accommodation on the mainland before Venice. There are excellent bus connections into the lagoon town itself. Now you can say cheers with a glass of wine and where better than on the Markusplatz itself!

Tour character

You will cycle along cycle paths until you get to Longarone and then on quiet side roads. In Italy you will have to deal with some busier roads when entering and leaving towns. Despite transfers across the Brennerpass you will have to conquer several hills in Bavaria and in the Puster valley. You will mainly cycle on tarmacked cycle paths. Only along the Isar and around lake Sylvenstein as well as between Toblach and Cortina d’Ampezzo will you have to cycle on longer sections of gravel paths.

Es war eine wunderbare Radtour auf super Radwegen in wunderbarer Landschaft. Leider hatten wir 30 km vor Venedig die Orientierung verloren und konnten nur noch mühsam die richtige Streckenführung finden. Trotz allem (auch ein paar Regentagen) haben wir tolle Erinnerungen im Gepäck .

Vielen lieben Dank für Ihre tolle Bewerbung! Es tut uns sehr leid, dass es auf der Strecke, noch dazu so kurz vor dem Ziel, zu Orientierungsschwierigkeiten kam. Bitte fragen Sie bei der nächsten Radtour unsere GPS-Daten an - so wird die Streckenfindung noch leichter!

Tolle Radreise
Eine der besten Radreisen, die wir bisher gemacht haben! Sehr abwechslungsreich- von München über die Alpen bis zum Meer. Sportlicher mit dem "normalen" Rad , sicher etwas gemütlicher mit E-Bikes. Unbedingt die kulinarischen Besonderheiten der Regionen verkosten! Wie immer problemloser Gepäcktransfer, durchwegs schöne Hotels- eine absolut empfehlenswerte Tour!!

Wunderschöne Tour
Wir haben zum ersten Mal eine Radreise gemacht und es hat uns so gut gefallen, dass wir am liebsten noch weitergefahren wären. Es hat alles gut geklappt, die Strecke war gut ausgeschildert und das Gepäck immer vor uns im Hotel. Die Hotels immer zentral im Ort und gut zu finden. Die e-Bikes in gutem Zustand, das einzige was hier gefehlt hat, war der Flaschenhalter am Rad. Wir denken schon über die nächste Radreise nach.

Vielen Dank, dass Sie Ihre Eindrücke mit uns teilen. Schön zu hören, dass Sie mit der Organisation und dem Service sehr zufrieden waren. Wir wissen, dass eine Getränkehalterung oft praktisch wäre... Diese sind aber leider für die vielen Fahrten unserer Räder auf dem Anhänger ungeeignet!
