Munich to Venice

Bavaria Germany: (ZZ-BKGRFA01)
URL: https://www.hiddentrails.com/tour/biking_germany_munich_venice.aspx

Introduction
Bavaria Germany
This cycling tour joins pure leisure cycling with the adventure of traversing the Alps from Germany over Austria & Italy. On cycling paths, cycle routes or small side roads you will experience three countries, each with their various regions and lots of outstanding natural and cultural beauties. The adventure 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 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.
