Munich – Venice (12 days / 11 nights)
From the banks of river Isar to the gates of the Serenissima

Difficulty Level:
Duration: 12 days
Distance: 510 - 510 km
Landscape:

The cycle track „München-Venezia“ from the capital of Bavaria – Munich and ends on the gates of the Serenissima – Venice – with its doges palaces and famous canals 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.
The cycling tour from Munich to Venice is a varied tour and leads along Bavarian lakes and Tyrolean rivers through the UNESCO world natural heritage – the Dolomites – to Treviso and finally to Venice. 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.
