Highlights and places of interest along the route:


The cycle track „München-Venezia“ joins pure leisure cycling with the adventure of traversing the Alps from Germany over Austria to Italy. From Bressanone you cycle on the Eisacktal cycle path and then along the river Etsch to the biggest lake of Italy, lake Garda.
On cycling paths or small side roads you will experience three countries with their various regions and lots of outstanding natural and cultural beauties. The tour starts in the capital of Bavaria – Munich – and leads along Bavarian lakes and Tyrolean rivers to the Austrian-Italian border. Through the Wipptal and Eisacktal you cycle into South Tyrol’s capital Bolzano, where you may pay a visit to the oldest Tyrolean – Ötzi – the Iceman. Along the river Etsch fruit meadows and green fields will accompany your way to Lake Garda, one of the most popular lakes in Italy.

Characteristics of the route:

The cycling tour from Munich to Lake Garda is a very varied tour. The most demanding stage over the Alps (Innsbruck–Brenner) can be shortened by train or bus. Between the Etsch Valley and Lake Garda there is only one long ascent. There is plenty of time to look at cultural places of interest or relax along the way.
The tour is suitable for children over 16 years.
