Bike trip from Munich to Venice

The bike trip „München-Venezia“ joins pure leisure cycling with the adventure of traversing the Alps from Germany over Austria to Italy. On cycling paths, cycle routes or small side roads you will experience three countries with their various regions and lots of outstanding natural and cultural beauties. „München-Venezia“ starts in the capital of Bavaria – Munich – and leads along Bavarian lakes and Tyrolean rivers through the UNESCO world natural heritage – the Dolomites – to Treviso and finally to the gates of the Serenissima – Venice – with its doges palaces and famous canals.

Characteristics of the route
The bike trip from Munich to Venice is a very varied tour. The most demanding stages over the Alps (Innsbruck–Brenner) can be shortened by train or bus and the stage from Dobbiaco to Cortina d’Ampezzo leads easily along the cycle path on the old railway trail. The last two days are downhill and flat towards the sea.
Thebike trip is suitable for children from the age of 16

PACKAGE DETAILS

Day 1: Arrival to Munich

Individual arrival to the first hotel in Munich.

Day 2: Munich – Tegernsee (approx. 60 km)

You leave Munich along the river Isar and will find yourself in the midst of untouched nature landscapes. The river remains your faithful companion on the cycling path direction south. Soon you will arrive at the Tegernsee, a famous sightseeing and tourist attraction in the Bavarian Alps and one of the clearest lakes of Bavaria.

Day 3: Tegernsee – Jenbach (approx. 62 km)

Also today you will follow in large parts the river Isar, which will accompany you in the holiday region Achensee and its mountain lake „Achensee“. Go in for a boat trip on the lake before continuing your way down to the Inn valley and the end of today’s Jenbach.

Day 4: Jenbach – Mühlbach/Rio di Pusteria (approx. 96 km+train or bus)

From Jenbach you cycle on the cycling path – the river Inn along – into Tyrol’s capital Innsbruck. Visit the historic city with its famous „Goldene Dachl“ (Golden Roof) or go on an excursion on Mount Isel with its ski-jump or the „Berg-Isel-Museum” in remembrance of the battle of Mount Isel under the freedom fighter Andreas Hofer. The demanding part from Innsbruck to the Brennero pass, border between Austria and Italy and at the same time watershed and cultural axis, will be done by transfer (train or bus). Only a few buildings remind of the former border between the two European countries. From the Brennero you cycle along the old railway track to Vipiteno and further on to Fortezza and Rio di Pusteria.

Day 5: Mühlbach/Rio di Pusteria – Niederdorf/Villabassa or Toblach/Dobbiaco (approx. 50 - 55 km)

From Rio di Pusteria a well built cycling path leads you through the Val Pusteria, passing the Mühlbacher Klause, a former boarder post. Once it was an antique gate between the provinces Rätien and Norikum. Along the river Rienz you will arrive to Brunico. We suggest a visit of the Volkskundemuseum (South Tyrolean Folklore Museum) in Teodone. From Brunico you cycle along the cycling path along the river Rienz to Villabassa or Dobbiaco, where you will spend the night.

Day 6: Niederdorf/Villabassa-Toblach/Dobbiaco – Pieve di Cadore (approx. 60 - 65 km)

From here you follow the cycling path on the old Dolomites railway trail passing lake Toblacher See and the War Cemetery reminding World War I. Shortly after you will admire an unique view on the world famous Drei Zinnen (Three Peaks) before arriving to lake Dürrensee. Slightly steep the cycling path leads to the border of the two provinces Bolzano and Belluno. From now on you roll comfortably downhill direction south to the pearl of the Dolomites, Cortina d’Ampezzo with its astonishing mountain scenery. Today is slightly downhill again, a large part still on the old railway trail – on your left the massif of Sorapis, on your right the massif Cinque Torri (five towers). Through the Boite- Valley you cycle direction South to Pieve di Cadore.

Day 7: Pieve di Cadore – Conegliano (approx. 80 km)

From here you will cycle on the new cycling path to Longarone. This town was completely rebuilt in 1963 after a landslide filled the dam above the village and caused a flood. From Longarone you cycle to Conegliano.

Day 8: Conegliano – Venice mainland/Mestre (approx. 90 km)

You leave the Alps behind and arrive to Treviso, city of waterways and fashion. On your way you can admire numerous villas from the Italian master-builder Palladio, who was able to complete here his magnificent buildings under the influence of the leading European sea power Venice.
