Itinerary

Tour information and the handing out of the bikes. 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.

Today you will mainly follow the River Weißach. It will take you to Lake Achen, which is another popular holiday destination. If you want, you can take a boat ride on the Lake before you continue cycling downhill into the Inn valley and today’s destination, Jenbach.

Leaving Jenbach, 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 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 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.

Tour character

This cycling tour from Munich to Venice is extremely diverse. The demanding parts of it across the Alps (Innsbruck - Brenner) can be shortened by train if desired. The section through the Dolomites from Toblach to Cortina d’Ampezzo is easy to cycle as you cycle along the bike path which follows the former railway. You cycle downhill for the last two days and then along the flat by the sea.

Super Tour - des war leiwand
Sehr abwechlungsreiche, schöne Radtour mit wunderbaren, beindruckenden Landschaften und Städten. Die Tour ist super organisiert (inkl. GPS). Die Strecke ist zum überwiegenden Teil sehr gut befahrbar und autofrei. Die geliehenen Räder (eins davon E-Bike) waren in gutem Zustand und es gab keinerlei Probeleme. Insbesondere die kleineren, familären Hotels (wir mögen diese lieber) mit sehr freundlichem Personal und guter Küche. Nach vielen sehr schönen Eurobike-Touren war diese Tour das Highlight! Bis jetzt :-)

Alpenquerung auf Bahntrassen
Ein sehr abwechslungsreicher Radurlaub von München nach Venedig ! Die Strecke führt über schöne Radwege auf Bahntrassen und entlang von Flüssen, und nur an wenigen Stellen über Landstraße. Meine Befürchtung wie bei den Tour de France Fahrern Serpentinen hoch und runter strampeln zu müssen, waren unbegründet. Jedes Hotel hatte sein Highlight - mal die Lage, mal das Frühstück mal die besonders netten Leute. Die Organisation hat prima funktioniert, die GPS Tracks waren gut ( bis auf die Strecke vor Venedig, die mein Garmin nicht verarbeiten konnte). Der Rücktransport hat prima funktioniert, nur die Anreise zum Treffpunkt mit dem Taxi erwies sich als schwierig. Die Servicehotline hat aber schnell geholfen. Die Strecke waren dank guter Einteilung -zumindest mit eBikes- in 9 Tagen sehr gut machbar, wir waren zumeist um 15 Uhr im Zielhotel. Eine volle ***** Empfehlung für diesen Radurlaub von uns !

The Munich to Venice cycling tour exceeded our expectations!
The scenery was spectacular, and I would recommend this cycling tour to anyone capable of the daily distances. The accommodations were quite nice, and the bikes were trouble free. There was plenty of room in the pannier and handlebar bag for personal items,. This was my first cycling tour, and the experience was so wonderful that I am anxious to book other tours in the future!

Wonderholiday
We tried this type of holiday for the first time - and absolutely loved it!! The itinerary was great - each day a new and faboulous experience, on (mostly) wonderful cycle paths! The hotels was great too - some better than others, but each of them with their own advantages! From the bikers heaven in the main square in a small Italian village, or the great garden with extraordinary views to the Dolomites... The bikes served their purpose well, even though we could have preferred wider wheels oh the roughest parts. Our first, but definite not our last, cycling holiday! Thank you!!l

Excellent route with spectacular sights.
Wonderful mixture of forests, lakes, farmland and snow capped mountains. The tour map booklet could be improved if it were possible to match the written description to the map, some times there were 3 pages difference in alignment. The map pages could be printed at a better scale to show the route outline in more detail, thus less need for the written descriptions.
