Highlights and places of interest along the route:

Description:

Undoubtedly, the „Drau Bicycle Path“ is one of the most spectacular bicycle routes in Europe and has been classified in 2016 from ADFC as 5-star-quality-route. The part from Hochpustertal/Alta Val Pusteria to Klagenfurt is especially suitable for families and novice cyclists.
The cycle path starts at the source of the Drava River in Toblach/Dobbiaco. This is the place where Gustav Mahler, the composer, found most of his inspiration. The River Drava accompanies you on the way to the East Austrian capital of Lienz. From here the tour takes you through Spittal a.d. Drau and Villach to Klagenfurt. On the way you will encounter several lakes where you can have a refreshing bath. Or you just enjoy the sun on the banks of the Millstätter, Ossiacher, Faaker or Wörther Lakes.

  
Characteristics of the route:

This tour is ideal for beginners and families. The route mainly takes you alongside the River Drau and there are no steep inclines. The bicycle path is well marked.
