Itinerary

Tour information and the handing out of the bikes. This is Bavaria’s county capital and it is waiting for you with its many tourist attractions (English gardens, town hall, Hofbräuhaus…)

Cycling along river Isar you leave Munich. On your way you will pass monasteries, authentic Bavarian villages as well as the beautiful area along the river Isar until you reach Bad Tölz, which was renowned for building rafts in former times. Especially the historic centre of the city is worth seeing.

Today you will mainly follow the River Weißach. It will take you to Lake Achen, which is another popular holiday destination. If you want, you can take a boat ride on the Lake before you continue cycling downhill into the Inn valley and today’s destination, Jenbach.

Leaving Jenbach, you cycle on well constructed cycle paths along the River Inn towards Tyrol’s capital, Innsbruck. Stroll through the historical old town, check out the famous Golden Roof or take a trip to the Isel mountain where there is a ski jump or Tyrol Panorama museum about the battles that took place under Andreas Hofer’s supreme command as a freedom fighter. The demanding section of today’s ride from Innsbruck to the Brenner pass, which is the border between Austria and Italy will be done via transfer by train or bus. Nowadays there are only some buildings to remind us about the former border. From Brenner you cycle along the old railway track to get to Sterzing followed by Franzensfeste and then Mühlbach .

From Mühlbach there is a good cycle path running through the Puster valley and past the Mühlbach pass, a former border post. In former times this formed an ancient gateway between the provinces of Rätien and Norikum. You will arrive in Bruneck by cycling along the River Rienz. We recommend a visit to the Folklore Museum in Dietenheim, an open-air museum documenting rural life, culture and customs in South Tyrol, the Messner Mountain Museums at Kronplatz or Bruneck Castle. From Bruneck you cycle along a bike path running along the River Rienz until you get to Niederdorf/Toblach, which is today’s destination.

Today you will cycle along the former Dolomite railway track, which is now a cycle path, through the Höhlenstein valley. It will take you past Lake Toblach and the war cemetery: this is a WW1 memorial of the front which you cross. Shortly after this you will get a fantastic panoramic view of the the rock formations of the ‘Drei Zinnen’ mountain peaks before you arrive at Lake Dürren. You now cycle slightly uphill towards the border of the two provinces Bolzano and Belluno. After this, you can free wheel along the former railway downhill. The valley opens up towards the South and you arrive in Cortina d’Ampezzo, which is a town in the Dolomites and that is located amongst wonderful scenery. You then cycle continuously downhill mostly along the former railway. To your left you get a view of the Sorapis massif and to the right the right formation of the ‘Cinque Torri’ - the five towers. You then continue cycling through the Boite valley to the junction of Pieve/Calazo die Cadore.

You cycle along the newly built cycle path to Longarone. This town was rebuilt really quickly after it was flooded in 1963 when a rock fall in the reservoir caused a tsunami. You then continue to today’s destination, Conegliano.

Today you leave the Alps behind you and have a relaxed cycle ride along the flat to Treviso, which is the town of waterways and fashion. On your way you will keep spotting villas designed by the Italian architect Palladio. These are magnificent buildings that he completed here really close to the influential sphere of Venice.  Along the home straights of this tour you head towards the Adriatic Sea. The River Sile will be your main companion for this last section as the bike path to mainland Venice runs alongside it. Venice is of course the final destination of your tour and is a great place to end it with all of its gorgeous buildings.

Tour character

This cycling tour from Munich to Venice is extremely diverse. The demanding parts of it across the Alps (Innsbruck - Brenner) can be shortened by train if desired. The section through the Dolomites from Toblach to Cortina d’Ampezzo is easy to cycle as you cycle along the bike path which follows the former railway. You cycle downhill for the last two days and then along the flat by the sea.

This cycle tour is recommended from an age of 16 years.

Die Tour ist wunderbar
Wir haben diese wunderbare Tour bei Ihnen gebucht, "betreut" wurden wir jedoch von Fun Active, trotzdem sind Sie zunächst unser Ansprechpartner. Wir haben schon sehr viele Radreisen gemacht und sind daher an einen gewissen Standard gewöhnt. Wir haben daher zu dieser Reise einige kritische Anmerkungen zu machen: Positiv: 1. Die Strecke ist großartig und mit einem E-Bike ohne Probleme zu bewältigen. 2. Der Gepäcktransport hat immer pünktlich funktioniert. Negativ: 1. Da ein Rücktransport aus Venedig nicht vorgesehen oder angeboten war, mussten wir das alleine organisieren. Bei anderen Unternehmen gab es zumindest dazu (kostenpflichtige) Angebote. 2. Wir haben ca. 2 Wochen vor Start der Reise noch keinerlei Unterlagen über die Reise gehabt. Wir mussten uns selbst darum kümmern, dass wir eine Hotelliste bekamen. 3. Wir erhielten keinerlei Kartenmaterial. Es gab lediglich den Hinweis, dass wir einfach immer der Ausschilderung des Radweges folgen sollten. (Später haben wir allerdings festgestellt, dass andere Kunden, die man ja immer wieder auf dem Weg trifft, durchaus ein Bikeline -Heft zugeschickt bekommen haben.) Ich habe dieses Heft selbst kaufen müssen. (14,90 €). 4. Die Beschilderung des Weges war in Bayern sehr schlecht. Fast jeder hat sich dort immer wieder verfahren, weil die Schilder fehlen, viel zu klein sind oder nicht eindeutig angebracht sind. Wir haben immer wieder auf die Navigation durch komoot zurückgreifen müssen. In Österreich wurde es etwas besser, der Pusterradweg und der Dolomitenradweg waren recht gut beschildert. In und um Treviso haben sich alle Radreisenden, die wir getroffen haben, verfahren. 5. Wir hatten einen kopierten Plan von allen Hotels, die wir anfahren mussten, darauf war aber überhaupt nicht zu erkennen, wie die Anbindung an den Radweg sein sollte. Auch hier gab es immer wieder Irritationen. 6. Es gab keine Einweisung in die Tour. Wir fühlten uns nicht betreut. Schade, dass ich eine relativ schlechte Rückmeldung abgebe, aber unter solchen Umständen werden wir die nächste Tour lieber gleich selbst organisieren, das ist dann billiger.

München-Venedig
Eine sehr schöne Radtour. Landschaftlich super abwechslungsreich. Allerdings ohne GPS Daten teilweise schwierig zu finden. Bis Holzkirchen nur sehr schlecht bis gar nicht beschildert. Großteils super Radwege, zum Teil frisch geteert und überwiegend ohne Verkehr. Die schönste Radtour, die wir bisher gemacht haben.
