Munich - Venice

From the Marienplatz to Markusplatz.

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.

Details about cycling holidays in Bavaria, Tyrol and Veneto

‘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.

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.
  • 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.

Useful information about the 12-day cycling holiday

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

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 cycle on well-constructed cycle paths along the River Inn towards Tyrol’s capital, Innsbruck. Stroll through the historical old town, check out the famous Golden Roof or take a trip to the Isel mountain where there is a ski jump or the Tyrol Panorama museum about the battles that took place under Andreas Hofer’s supreme command as a freedom fighter. The demanding section of today’s ride from Innsbruck to the Brenner pass, which is the border between Austria and Italy will be done via transfer by train or bus. Nowadays there are only some buildings to remind us about the former border. From Brenner you cycle along the old railway track to get to Sterzing followed by Franzensfeste and then Mühlbach.

From Mühlbach there is a good cycle path running through the Puster valley and past the Mühlbach pass, a former border post. In former times this formed an ancient gateway between the provinces of Rätien and Norikum. You will arrive in Bruneck by cycling along the River Rienz. We recommend a visit to the Folklore Museum in Dietenheim, an open-air museum documenting rural life, culture and customs in South Tyrol, the Messner Mountain Museums at Kronplatz or Bruneck Castle. From Bruneck you cycle along a bike path running along the River Rienz until you get to Niederdorf/Toblach, which is today’s destination.

Today you will cycle along the former Dolomite railway track, which is now a cycle path, through the Höhlenstein valley. It will take you past Lake Toblach and the war cemetery: this is a WW1 memorial of the front which you cross. Shortly after this you will get a fantastic panoramic view of the the rock formations of the ‘Drei Zinnen’ mountain peaks before you arrive at Lake Dürren. You now cycle slightly uphill towards the border of the two provinces Bolzano and Belluno. After this, you can free wheel along the former railway downhill. The valley opens up towards the South and you arrive in Cortina d’Ampezzo, which is a town in the Dolomites and that is located amongst wonderful scenery. You then cycle continuously downhill mostly along the former railway. To your left you get a view of the Sorapis massif and to the right formation of the ‘Cinque Torri’ - the five towers. You then continue cycling through the Boite valley to the junction of Pieve/Calazo die Cadore.

You cycle along the newly built cycle path to Longarone. This town was rebuilt in a very short time after being flooded by a tidal wave in 1963 caused by a rockfall at the former Vajont dam. You then continue to today’s destination, Conegliano.

Today you leave the Alps behind you and have a relaxed cycle ride along the flat to Treviso, which is the town of waterways and fashion. On your way you will keep spotting villas designed by the Italian architect Palladio. These are magnificent buildings that he completed here really close to the influential sphere of Venice.  Along the home straights of this tour you head towards the Adriatic Sea. The River Sile will be your main companion for this last section as the bike path to Venice/Mestre runs alongside it. Venice is of course the final destination of your tour and is a great place to end it with all of its gorgeous buildings.

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.

Most enjoyable;le .... but
The overall trip was absolutely great. It all worked as it should with perfectly adequate hotels and efficient transfers etc. What amazing scenery especially in the dolomites! The little niggle was with the GPX maps provided by FunActive Tours. 90% OK but they are out of date by some years so you miss some of the new cycle paths and are not diverted around some new developments that have been built on the old route. It should;d be easy to update them.

München - Venedig
Die Reise war Klasse. Es war eine herrliche Strecke und das Leihrad plus war technisch einwandfrei und hervorragend. Wir mußten am Anfang der Reise in München nur etwas Luft aufpumpen, was uns Herr Bauer im Hotel Bauer mit seinem Kompressor freundlicherweise ermöglicht hat. Die Navigation mit der App hat sehr gut funktioniert. Der Gepäcktransfer hat bei uns ebenfalls hervorragend funktioniert. Die Hotels waren ebenfalls alle gut. Nur die Hotelzimmer in Toblach, Cortina, Conegliano und Treviso hätten etwas moderner sein können. Da wir aber schönes Wetter hatten, fällt das nicht ins Gewicht. Vielen Dank für diesen wunderschönen Urlaub und das einzigartige Erlebnis. Als nächstes möchte ich gerne eine Reise durch die Dolomiten oder an den Gardasee machen.

München-Venedig
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!
