ITINERARY

DAY 1: Arrival to Munich
Individual arrival to the first hotel in Munich.

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

DAY 3: Bad Tölz – Schwaz/Jenbach oder Maurach (approx. 68-77 km)
Also today you will follow the river Isar until you reach lake Sylvenstein. Cycling through the Karwendel nature park you pass the german-austrian border arriving to the holiday destination Achensee and its mountain lake „Achensee“. Go in for a boat trip on the lake before continuing your way down to the Inn valley and ending your stage in Maurach/Jenbach or Schwaz.

DAY 4: Schwaz/Jenbach oder Maurach – Mühlbach/Rio di Pusteria (approx. 96 km or 88 + train)
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.

DAY 5: Mühlbach/Rio di Pusteria – Niederdorf/Villabassa or Toblach/Dobbiaco (approx.50-55 km)
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

DAY 6: Niederdorf/Villabassa or Toblach/Dobbiaco – Pieve di Cadore (approx. 60-65km)
From here you follow the cycling path on the old Dolomites railway trail passing lake Toblacher See and the War Cemetery reminding World War I. Shortly after, you will admire a unique view on the world famous Drei Zinnen (Three Peaks) before arriving to lake Dürrensee. Slightly steep the cycling path leads to the border of the two provinces Bolzano and Belluno. From now on you roll comfortably downhill direction south to the pearl of the Dolomites, Cortina d’Ampezzo with its astonishing mountain scenery. Today is slightly downhill again, a large part still on the old railway trail – on your left the massif of Sorapis, on your right the massif Cinque Torri (five towers). Through the Boite-Valley you cycle direction South to Pieve di Cadore.

DAY 7: Pieve di Cadore – Conegliano (approx. 80 km)
From here you will cycle on the new cycling path to Longarone. This town was completely rebuilt in 1963 after a landslide at the former Vajont damm, above the village caused a huge flood. From Longarone you cycle on to Conegliano.

DAY 8: Conegliano – Venice mainland/Mestre (approx. 95 km)
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“.
