The new long-distance trail Munich Venice closes the gap in Alpine crossings in the eastern Alps. And connects Germany’s southern-most metropolis with Italy’s lagoon pearl at the Adriatic. Between them lie spectacular landscapes and tracks for all bicycled connoisseurs. The new, 560 kilometres long connection for the most ecological and important means of transportation in the world – measured by usage – is trending: After all, bicycling combines travelling with sports, on a lifestyle product that is growing in popularity and social status.

 

Three countries, three climes, and Alpine-Mediterranean environs

The route is travelled on existing bicycle roads, such as parts of the beautiful Innradweg. Added are further bicycle routes and small by-roads, not just through metropolises like Munich, Innsbruck and Venice. Stunning tourist regions and romantic towns, including Bad Tölz, Schwaz, Brixen and Treviso, can be experienced with all senses.

 

To the outstanding scenic attractions belong – apart from the geographic high point of the route, the UNESCO World Heritage Dolomites – the Bavarian lakes Tegernsee and Sylvensteinspeicher, the Tyrolean Achensee and the river Isar. Impressive experiences are also offered by the tributary valleys of the Tyoreal Wipptal, the Dolomites-encircled Cadore valley, the Lago di Santa Croce and finally the Adriatic sea. Luring are also a plethora of castles, palaces and roadside destinations, together with the Doge’s palaces and canals of the picturesque lagoon and UNESCO World Heritage city of Venice.

Over the whole route, with its total of 3000 metres altitude difference, optimal bus and train connections are ensured. Bicycle services are provided by cycling enthusiast hosts at many occasions.

 

A consistent signage is being developed by the project, sponsored by the European Regional Development Fund. To this, an outline map, a bicycling map at 1:75000 scale, and a route planner including GPS downloads for individual tour planning will be offered.
