Long-distance cycle route. Munich - Venezia

In the Hall-Wattens region, there has been a new long-distance cycle route from the Bavarian capital of Munich to the lagoon city of Venice since summer 2015. The Transalp route includes three sections, which can either be completed in one go or split up, through the alpine region of Hall-Wattens. The cycle route leads from Bavaria, North Tyrol via South Tyrol and Trentino to the provinces of Belluno and Treviso, before finally reaching the lagoon city of Venice.

The new, 560-kilometre-long connection for the world's most ecological and important means of transport is absolutely on trend: cycling combines travel with sport, countries with people, nature with cultural experiences and culinary delights - all in an environmentally friendly and CO2-neutral way.

Visit the charming historic town of Hall in Tirol on your cycle tour to Venice. Learn all about the history of the town on guided tours. The two swimming pools in the region are a great place to take a break and a detour to the local mountain, the Glungezer , is a real experience.

We will be happy to help you find suitable cycling accommodation.

The Munich Venezia long-distance cycle route in detail

In Bavaria and Tyrol, it runs west along the Isarradweg and Sylvensteinspeicher and on the eastern variant via Holzkirchen past Tegernsee, in each case to the Tyrolean border and further along Lake Achensee into the Inntal valley. From Jenbach, the Inn cycle path is used, leading through Hall in Tirol and Innsbruck up into the Tyrolean Wipptal valley, via Patsch and Ellbögen to Steinach am Brenner. From here, if you want to avoid the old Brenner road with car traffic, you can change to the train. You can also take the streetcar through Innsbruck and up to the Wipptal valley.

On the South Tyrolean side, the route heads for Sterzing and then the Eisack Valley. At Franzensfeste, the route branches off to the east into the Pustertal and Hochpustertal valleys. The route continues via Bruneck to Toblach. If you are still in good shape, take a detour to Brixen. From Dobbiaco, the route heads south into the heart of the Dolomites, over the Gemärk Pass through Cortina d'Ampezzo to the Cadore Valley, framed by the Dolomites. Valle di Cadore, Ponte nelli Alpe and Lake Santa Croce are the next stops before the route leaves the Alps at Vittorio Veneto and enters the hilly Veneto plain.

After Conegliano and Susegna, the Piave river is crossed and finally Treviso is reached. From there, there will be two ways to reach the actual destination - the lagoon and UNESCO World Heritage city of Venice: By land via the port city of Mestre and from there onwards by train or via the Adriatic town of Jesolo and Punta Sabbione then by boat directly to St. Mark's Square!

The Munich Venezia long-distance cycle route is a joint international project:

On the transnational transalp project "Fernradweg münchen venezia" with its partners from Bavaria, Tyrol, South Tyrol and the provinces of Belluno and Treviso, the best bus and train connections are provided along the entire route - with just 3,000 meters of ascent in total. In many places, bike-friendly hosts provide bike-related services. Standardized signage is currently being created for this project, which is being funded by the EU as part of the European Regional Development Fund. There will also be an overview map, a cycle guide on a scale of 1:75,000 and a route planner with GPS download for individual travel planning.

On the road in five different cycling worlds on the Munich Venezia long-distance cycle route

In the first of these characteristic adventure sections of the 'münchen venezia' long-distance cycle route, the 'element of water' is a constant companion. While the attractive city beaches along the wild Isar River still beckon in the Bavarian capital of Munich, the two route variants to the west and east of the Isar guarantee plenty of variety thanks to beer gardens and cultural monuments. Shortly afterwards, the picturesque Tegernsee, the Sylvenstein reservoir and the "Sea of the Tyroleans", the Achensee, beckon. Fascinating: the Karwendel Alpine Park near Hall in Tirol boasts 350 springs.

The "treasure chest" of Tyrol

The second section - the 'Treasure Chest of Tyrol' - focuses on Tyrol's mining tradition as well as numerous cultural and natural treasures. The Transalp long-distance cycle route from Munich to Venice starts in Jenbach in the Inntal valley and goes via Schwaz, the Hall-Wattens region and Innsbruck up into the Tyrolean Wipptal valley to the border with Italy. Here you can take a ride on the narrow-gauge railroad into the Zillertal, visit the newly designed Swarovski Crystal Worlds and pay a visit to the Halleinen Mint. The route passes Innsbruck with the legendary Golden Roof, the Imperial Palace and the unusually designed Bergisel ski jump. The Tyrolean Wipptal valley, a natural transition from Tyrol to South Tyrol, has other treasures in store: to the left and right of the main valley, countless alpine pastures offer unforgettable views of the surrounding mountains and culinary highlights in rustic huts.

Alpine-Mediterranean lifestyle

Just after the Brenner Pass, you reach section three of the münchen venezia long-distance cycle route with its 'Alpine-Mediterranean lifestyle'. South Tyrol's unique Alpine landscape with its Mediterranean charm can be experienced in Sterzing and Brixen, but also at Kronplatz and in Bruneck with its 'Messner Mountain Museum'. Typical Italian street cafés, ice cream parlors and restaurants with regional specialties invite you to linger. While impressive castles such as Reifenstein, Franzensfeste or Bruneck Castle sit enthroned high up on the mountains, Munich Venezia cyclists are greeted by landscapes with vineyards and fruit orchards in the valleys.

World Natural Heritage Dolomites, Gardens of Venice & Art Cities

The main attraction of the fourth section of the Transalp long-distance cycle route munich venezia is the Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You cycle via Cortina d'Ampezzo to Pieve di Cadore and Belluno. The Renaissance town of Feltre in the Piave Valley is also worth a visit. The Belluno Dolomites National Park, which belongs to Belluno, is an ideal destination for hikers, mountaineers, climbers, mountain bikers and road bikers. Lago di Santa Croce offers refreshment: here you can swim, surf and kite surf. A popular alternative to cycling on the Munich Venezia long-distance cycle route!

On the fifth stage of the long-distance cycle route - 'Gardens of Venice & Art Cities' - through the Venetian plain, cyclists immerse themselves in the flair of the world-famous lagoon city and, if you like, in the sea at Jesolo. On the way there, the towns of Vittorio Veneto, Conegliano, Treviso, Fossalta di Piave and Musile di Piave with its cantilever bridge are worthwhile stops. There are not only numerous farm and regional stores offering delicious products: It is especially the 'Gardens of the Veneto', historic grounds complete with 16th and 17th century villas, that enchant visitors. As one of the Italian 'Art Cities in Europe', Venice itself enjoys a unique worldwide reputation as a cultural institution, not least because of the Biennale, which has been taking place since 1895.
