Transalp trail - Hall in Tirol
Crossing the Alps is an unforgettable delight
The completion of the final section of the Eisacktal cycle path means that riders can now cross the Alps from Munich to Verona virtually free of traffic.
The classic Transalp Trail begins in Garmisch and ends in Riva del Garda. A variety of attractions and natural treasures are just waiting to be discovered along the way.
Surrounded by idyllic countryside, the route wends its way from scenic Upper Bavaria into the almost pristine mountains around Lake Achensee.
Accompanied by the nostalgic sounds of the old Achensee railway, the Inntal cycle path passes imposing mountains en route to Innsbruck.
In order to avoid the hustle and bustle of the capital, there are plenty of charming small towns along the route to make your trip a truly authentic experience.
The once powerful trading centre of Hall in Tirol has evolved into a prime tourist magnet over recent years.
These days, Hall is a vibrant small town where you can experience chic hospitality behind historic city walls.
The medieval Old Town alone is worth a visit.
You should take time to recharge your batteries here, because the climb over the main chain of the Alps is arguably the most challenging passage on this otherwise leisurely route.
The views of the Innsbruck Northern Mountain Chain and the eternally snow-capped peaks of the Stubai Glacier will more than make up for the effort and provide motivation for the ride to Brixen.
The final section leads through vast railway tunnels reserved exclusively for cyclists.
Continue along the wild Eisack River through vineyards and past castles until you reach the turquoise waters of Lake Garda.
Crossing the Alps along the Transalp Trail is an unforgettable experience for all nature lovers.
