Three Countries, Two Languages, Three Cultures and Three Climatic Zones: The long-distance cycle route from Germany’s Munich to Italy’s Venice takes riders 560 kilometers through three countries, including Tirol with its capital Innsbruck and charming small towns, past crystal clear lakes such as Tegernsee, Achensee and Lago di Santa Croce and over the Alps to Italy and – eventually – to Venice and the Adriatic.
The 95-kilometer route across Tirol is the best possible way for a cyclist to grasp the range of scenic pleasures available in the Heart of the Alps, including a spectacular backdrop of mountains and areas of awesome natural beauty along with cultural sights and attractions.
- Home to 1,305 species of plant, 3,035 species of animals and 350 springs, Karwendel Nature Park provides a true wilderness experience in one of Europe’s most pristine surroundings.
- Great sights and attractions en route are perfect places to take a break from cycling! Get aboard a historic steam-powered narrow gauge railroad into scenic Zillertal Valley, visit the Swarovski Crystal Worlds in Wattens, the Mint Tower in Hall or explore amazing Wolfsklamm Gorge in Stans. Don’t miss out on Tirol’s lively capital Innsbruck. The Alpine town is a living treasure house of history and culture. Architectural gems like the famous "Golden Roof" and the Imperial Court Palace lurk around every corner of the old town.
- The trip across Wipptal Valley offers many moments to soak up one of the most scenic and unique experiences that Tirol has to offer; 360 degree views of the surrounding mountains and lovely trailside eateries where local specialties are dished up.
- The Cycle Path passes several train and bus stations where you can get aboard a bus or train to shorten your journey if you wish.
