Have you ever taken a road trip on a route that invites you to stop, admire the view, and take photos every few kilometres? A journey from Munich to Venice offers plenty of such beautiful spots. So, what would be more obvious than covering the 560-kilometre distance by bike, enjoying a ride full of spectacular landscapes while being completely flexible and independent? The long-distance cycle path Munich Venice leads from the Bavarian capital Munich across the Alps via Lake Achensee to Venice. A unique combination of travel and sporting activity, the tour guarantees pure cycling pleasure as it passes through three countries, three climate zones and five worlds of experience.
The first characteristic world of experience centers on the element of water. From Munich, the route leads via Bad Tölz and Lake Tegernsee to Lake Achensee, with the mountains soon coming into view. If you wish, you can spend the first night of your bike adventure at Lake Achensee between the Rofan and Karwendel mountains. The bike ride from Munich to Achenkirch takes about five hours, and the rest of the Achensee stage runs past the eastern shore. As you pedal along, you soak in the view and the fresh breezes blowing from Tirol's largest lake, whose entire shoreline is accessible. A wonderful opportunity to stop by the water and enjoying a dip.
The long-distance cycle ride spans 560 kilometres and climbs over only 3,000 metres of elevation. It travels on existing cycle paths and is well signposted in both the northern and southern direction, making it perfectly feasible. Along the way, many inns and accommodations provide welcome rest and much-deserved refreshments. In addition, the idyllic route boasts amazing natural and cultural attractions.
