Highlights and places of interest along the route:

Description:

The Drau bike path is undoubtedly one of the most spectacular routes in Europe. The route has been classified from ADFC as 5-star-quality-route and starts at the source of the river Drau in Italy leading 360 km along the river across Eastern Tyrol and Carinthia to Maribor. From the border town Dravograd the cycling path is not following the river at the valley bottom but above on the hillside of the mountains. Enjoy the great view over the Slovenian Drau valley. The last destination of this tour is Maribor. The second largest city in the country is surrounded by vineyards and the river Drau. It impresses with its intriguing history, numerous museums, rafting tradition and festivals.

  
Characteristics of the route:

In South Tyrol and Austria it mostly follows the cycle path along asphalted or gravel roads. In Slovenia the tour is more challenging, with a few slight climbs and descents. Those track sections can usually be cut by using the train. The tour is suitable for children over 16 years.
