The starting point for this sporty cycle tour is the Bavarian capital Munich. The tour heads following cycle paths and quiet side roads over the Alps, visiting three different countries as you go – Germany, Austria & Italy and is ending at the lagoon city Venice.

The tour leads to the Bavarian`s lake scenery, passing some well-known lakes, like Starnberger-, Tegern-, or Schliersee over the border to lake Achensee. They are perfect for a jump into the refreshing water after a long cycling day. Traveling along the Tyrolean Inntal the road bikers reach Innsbruck and get over the Brennero pass to South Tyrol. At the bottom of the breathtaking summits of the Dolomites – taking part of the UNESCO world natural heritage – you cycle towards the Adriatic coastline.
The road bike tour from Munich to Venice is a highly varied tour for sporty-racing bikers with a good physical preparation. The route runs along asphalted cycle paths and quiet side roads. From the foothills of the Alps over the Brennero pass and the Dolomites a few ascents need to be conquered. The last part of the journey runs through the Italian lowland.

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 Tirol Panorama 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, can even be done by 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 over the high apple plateau Naz-Sciaves to Rio di Pusteria.

From Rio di Pusteria a well-built cycling path leads you through the Val Pusteria to Vandoies, passing the Mühlbacher Klause, a former border post. Once it was an antique gate between the provinces Rätien and Norikum. In Vandoies you leave the cycling path and turn into the Sun Road. The road proceeds uphill through the forest to Terento and Falzes. After a while you will enjoy a beautiful view on the nearby Dolomites and the wintersport resort Kronplatz.
