Itinerary

Day 1: Individual arrival in Munich

Individual arrival to the starting hotel in Munich. If you arrive early don’t miss the chance to explore the capital of the state of Bavaria!

Day 2: Munich – Bad Tölz (approx. 58 km/36 mi)

You will leave Munich cycling along the Isar River, a route that immediately offers you unspoilt natural settings. The river will stay your companion on the cycling path going south. The next stop is Bad Tölz.

Day 3: Bad Tölz – Jenbach (approx. 69 km/43 mi)

One more day cycling will take you to the holiday region of Achensee with its picturesque mountain lake. Relax on a boat tour of Lake Achensee before getting back in the saddle and cycle downhill to the Inn valley and Jenbach, the last stop for today.

Day 4: Jenbach – Innsbruck (approx. 35 km/21 mi) / Train from Innsbruck to Brenner / Brenner – Mühlbach (approx. 55 km/35 mi) / (total approx. 90 km/56 mi)

From Jenbach, you will cycle along the Inn River on a well-presented cycling path to Innsbruck, capital city of Tyrol. Take a stroll through the historic town center, visit the famous “Golden Roof”, take a trip up Berg Isel with its ski-jump or the Berg Isel Museum that documents the battles that took place around the mountain under the command of freedom fighter Andreas Hofer. The first difficult stretch of today’s route leads from Innsbruck all the way to the Brenner Pass, national border between Austria and Italy, watershed and cultural axis, and will be completed by bus or by train. Only a few isolated buildings recall the former border clearance procedures. From the Brenner, you will cycle along the former railway line to the Fugger city of Sterzing and then on to Franzensfeste and Mühlbach.

Day 5: Mühlbach – Niederdorf/Toblach (approx. 60 km/37 mi)

From Mühlbach, a well-presented cycling path leads through the Puster Valley, past the Mühlbacher Klause, a former border station that functioned as a gate between the provinces of Raetia and Noricum in ancient times. You will then reach the city of Bruneck, cycling along the Rienz River. The local history museum in Dietenheim documents rural life in South Tyrol with its cultural heritage and customs and is well worth a visit. From Bruneck, cycle along the Rienz River trail to Toblach, todays last stop.

Day 6: Niederdorf/Toblach – Pieve di Cadore/Calalzo du Cadore (approx. 60 km/37 mi)

Today’s route takes you along the cycling path of the former Dolomite railway, through the Höhlenstein Valley, past Lake Toblach and the soldier’s cemetery that is a memorial of WWI. A unique panoramic view of the “Drei Zinnen” (“Three Peaks”) rock formation is coming up, followed by Lake Dürrensee. The cycle path continues slightly uphill to where the provinces of Bozen and Belluno meet, before taking you downhill, still along the former railway tracks, to the Dolomite resort of Cortina d’Ampezzo with its amazing mountain backdrop. Still going downhill and following the former tracks, you will see the Sorapis massif on your left and the “Five Towers” (Cinque Torri) rock formation on your right. Continue south through the Boite Valley to the junction of Pieve / Calalzo di Cadore.

Day 7: Pieve di Cadore/Calalzo du Cadore – Conegliano (approx. 95 km/59 mi)

The newly extended cycle path will take you to Longarone, a town that was rebuilt from scratch in an incredibly short period of time after being flooded by a tidal wave caused by a rockslide into the reservoir. The final stop for day 7 is Conegliano.

Day 8: Conegliano – Venice (approx. 90 km/56 mi)

Today, you will leave the Alps behind and cycle through the lowlands to Treviso on a route dotted with villas by Italian master builder Palladio, whose magnificent buildings were mostly recognized in this region, within the immediate sphere of influence of the great naval power of Venice. On the home stretch towards the Adriatic Sea, the Sile River will be your companion to the Venetian mainland, the start of your tour through the “Serenissima” and her resplendent palaces.

Day 9: Departure

Individual departure or option of extended stay.
