Overview

Think cowbell chimes, snow-capped mountainous surroundings and medieval architecture and you’ll find the picture postcard Innsbruck. Also known as Tyrol’s capital, having twice hosted the Winter Olympics, this beautiful city is well known for its Alpine sporting opportunities with many heading straight for the hills. To do so is a shame, for the heart of this beautiful city, with its historical buildings and baroque cathedral is one of the most breath-taking places to visit in Europe. Located close to Munich and Northern Italy, its ease of access make it an ideal starting point for this cycling route.

The tour guides you through changeable landscape, highlands and hill country to natural forest corridors. Passing several castles, the Kundler Gorge and villages dating back to the 15th century, including the ‘Pearl of the Tyrol’, the cycle path takes you almost all the way along the dam to Rosenheim.
The “City of Three Rivers”, or Passau as it’s more commonly known, is the point where the rivers Inn and Ilz meet the Danube. The heart of this quaint cobblestoned city lay many old buildings, churches and cathedral’s, including St Stephen’s, home to the world’s second largest cathedral organ, which hosts concerts at noon. This tour offers some spectacular natural and historic scenery for those who enjoy the great-outdoors.
