Description:

The Drau cycle 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 Villabassa/Dobbiaco to Lake Klopeinersee is especially suitable for families and novice cyclists.
The tour starts at the source of the river Drau in Dobbiaco. This is the place where Gustav Mahler, the composer, found most of his inspiration. The river Drau accompanies you on the way to the East Austrian capital of Lienz. From here the tour takes you through Spittal a.d. Drau and Rosegg to the Lake Klopeinersee. 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 Wörthersee* Lakes.
(*can be reached doing some loops)
