April 29th – October 10th, 2022

…the definite Alpine crossing of the Eastern Alps
…newly-established, modern cycling trail
…9 days / 8 nights with luggage transfer

The new long-distance trail Munich - Venice closes the gap in Alpine crossings in the eastern Alps and connects Germany’s southern-most metropolis with Italy’s lagoon pearl at the Adriatic. Between them lie spectacular landscapes and tracks for all cycling connoisseurs.

General information

The cycling trail from Munich to Venice is extremely versatile. The most difficult stretches that lead across the Alps (Innsbruck – Brenner) may also be completed by train and the route from Toblach to Cortina D’Ampezzo is not difficult, with a dedicated cycling path that runs along the former train line. On the last two days, heading towards the ocean, the route is downhill or even all the way.

A reasonable fitness level is necessary to enjoy this trip as well as cycle equipment like sneakers, rucksack, sun- and rain protection, comfortable sports cloths, jacket, jumper aso. The routes are suited for trekking bikes - mostly they are asphalted cycle paths, a few stretches are gravel and forest paths.

Day 1:  Individual arrival in Munich

Individual travel to the starting hotel in Munich. If you are early, take the chance to explore the capital of the Free State of Bavaria!

Day 2:  Munich – Bad Tölz(approx. 60km)

You will leave Munich cycling along the Isar River, a route that immediately opens up unspoilt natural settings. The river will stay your companion on the cycling path going south. The todays goal is the the town of Bad Tölz with its remarkable old town.

Day 3:  Bad Tölz – Jenbach/Schwaz (approx. 77km)

From Bad Tölz further along the Isar to the Sylvensteinsee. You cross the German-Austrian border through the Karwendel Nature Park and reach the Achensee holiday region and the mountain lake of the same name. If you want, you can take a boat trip on Lake Achensee.

Day 4:  Jenbach/Schwaz – Mühlbach (approx. 96km)

From Jenbach or Schwaz, you will cycle along the Inn River on a well-presented cycling path to Innsbruck, capital city of the Tyrol. Take a stroll through the historic town centre, 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. 55km)

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, today’s last stop. After riding the bike for lots of kilometres we´d like to offer you a pit stop for a bike check in Toblach.

Day 6:  Niderdorf / Toblach – Pieve di Cadore / Calalzo di Cadore (approx. 65km)

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 Cortina d’Ampezzo with its amazing mountain backdrop. Still going downhill and following the former tracks, you will see the Sorapis massif to the 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 di Cadore – Conegliano (approx. 95 / 105km)

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 / 100km)

This is the day when 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 realised 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.
