From Marienplatz to Markusplatz

12 Days / 11 Nights

Do you like contrasts? Then you will love our cycle tour from Munich to Venice! Marienplatz meets St Mark’s Square in just 12 days. Hearty wheat beer and fine red wine. Snow-covered mountain peaks and green lagoons. And charming Bavarians and passionate Italians. On the way from the Alps to the sea, you cover around 530 kilometres and collect unique memories – culinary as well as cultural. There are great moments between the English Garden in Munich and the world-famous canals of Venice too. For example, the Swarovski Crystal Worlds in Wattens, the Three Peaks of the Dolomites or the popular sandy beach on Lake Santa Croce.

‘The journey is the reward’ certainly applies to a Eurobike cycle tour! 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.

  • 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.
  • Three-country cuisine: Pretzels and Obazda in Bavaria, Gröstl in Tyrol, wine in South Tyrol and fresh pasta in Venice – culinary indulgence is certainly not missing on this cycling holiday!
  • Transfer via the Brenner Pass: To make your arrival even more relaxed, a transfer by bus or train via the Brenner Pass is included.

To start your cycling holiday, stroll through the vibrant Bavarian capital of Munich with its beer gardens, the English Garden and the neo-Gothic town hall. 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. The ideal time for a cycle tour from Munich to Venice is between April and September!

Itinerary at a glance

Take a break in Munich's English Garden and raise a toast at the Hofbräuhaus before making your way towards Venice via the Brenner Pass. Along the way, you'll pass by Sylvenstein Lake, Innsbruck, Bruneck Castle, and the Tre Cime (Three Peaks).

Information and bike handover. The capital of Bavaria awaits its visitors with numerous sights (English Garden, City Hall, Hofbräuhaus,...).

You leave Munich along the river Isar and will find yourself in the midst of untouched nature landscapes and dense forests. You will cycle past abbeys, bavarian villages and across the Isar wetland you reach Bad Tölz, a picturesque old town.

From Bad Tölz you cycle further along the Isar river to the Sylvensteinsee lake. Through the Karwendel Nature Park you cross the German-Austrian border and reach the holiday destination of Achensee, as well as the mountain lake of the same name. Those who wish can take a boat trip on the Achensee. Overnight stay depending on availability in Maurach/Jenbach or Schwaz.

From Jenbach or Schwaz you cycle on the cycling path - the river Inn along – into Tyrol’s capital Innsbruck. Visit the historic city with its famous „Goldene Dachl“ (Golden Roof) or go on an excursion on Mount Isel with its ski-jump or the Tirol Panorama.

The demanding part from Innsbruck to the Brennero pass, border between Austria and Italy and at the same time watershed and cultural axis, will be done by transfer (train or bus). Only a few buildings remind of the former border between the two European countries. From the Brennero you cycle along the old railway track to Vipiteno and further on to Fortezza and Rio di Pusteria.

From Rio di Pusteria a well-built cycling path leads you through the Val Pusteria, passing the Mühlbacher Klause, a former border post. Once it was an antique gate between the provinces Rätien and Norikum. Along the river Rienz you will arrive to Brunico. We suggest a visit of the Volkskundemuseum (South Tyrolean Folklore Museum) in Teodone or one of the two Messner Mountain Museums MMM in the castle of Brunico or on the Kronplatz mountain. From Brunico you cycle along the cycling path along the river Rienz to Villabassa or Dobbiaco, where you will spend the night. After having spent a lot of time on your bike until here, we offer you a free pit stop at our shop in Dobbiaco for a check-up on your bike.

From Villabassa/Dobbiaco you start on the bike path into the Höhlenstein Valley, past lake Toblach and the War cemetery. This area was used as the front during the 1st World War. You carry on past lake Dürrensee (on the left you can see the famous Drei Zinnen/Three Peaks); the cycle path ascends slightly before you get to the border – Gemärk/Cimabanche - of the region South Tyrol and the region of the Veneto. From here you cycle towards the south to Cortina d`Ampezzo.

Today the path is going slightly downwards, for the most part on the old railway track; you will see the Sorapis on the left and located on the right the Cinque Torri (Five Towers). You continue on to the south through the Boite Valley towards Pieve/Calalzo di Cadore. From here the new cycling path takes you to Longarone. This town was completely rebuilt in 1963 after a landslide filled the dam above the village and caused a flood.

Today you cycle in direction of South into the region of the wellnone Prosecco passing the Lake of Santa Croce to Conegliano.

You leave the Alps behind and arrive to Treviso, city of waterways and fashion. On your way you can admire numerous villas from the Italian master-builder Palladio, who was able to complete here his magnificent buildings under the influence of the leading European sea power Venice.

River Sile remains your faithful companion in the direction Adriatic Sea to Venice mainland/Mestre from where you can start your exploration of the „Serenissima“.
