Using this guide
This page is the introduction to a series of articles, it is intended to provide an overview of the route, together with information on how to get to and from the start and finishing points. The downloads section at the bottom of the page includes downloads of GPS files as well as maps in PDF format.
The route is described in more detail in the articles in the series. You can navigate between them using the Next/Previous arrows at the end of the main article, or the list of links at the bottom of the page (and in the sidebar if your screen is wide enough).
At a glance
564 to 590 kilometres, depending on which combination of variants your choose
Relatively easy - the only significant climb on the route is from Innsbruck to Brenner. However, note that if you are heading in the other direction, there is a tough climb from Wiesing to the Achensee.
Mainly on traffic-free cycleways or restricted roads, or on quiet roads. The climb to Brenner involves 8 kilometres or so on the main B182 road; this was not especially busy, but you can catch the train if you’d rather avoid it. More recently the closure of a section of the cycleway near Castelavazzo in the Veneto means that cyclists have to take to a busy road for 1.6 kilometres. Again, there’s the option of taking the train. There’s also a stressful stretch near Conegliano in the Veneto — but there is a variant that lets you avoid most of this bit.
Mixed surfaces. In Austria and Germany, a significant proportion is on aggregate-surfaced bike paths - although these are generally in good condition. In Italy, a greater proportion of the route is on tarmac, but there are still some stretches on compacted-aggregate cycleways. The longest aggregate-surfaced sections are between Toblach and Cortina d’Ampezzo, and the final stretch from Treviso along the Sile river.
The route is well signposted. The München-Venezia signage mainly relies on stickers or waymarkers added to existing cycle route signs — so it’s worth knowing the names of the cycle routes it uses, and the names of places along the way.
Weather and when to go
May to September is probably the best time to go. You could go in April or May, but expect the sections in the mountains to be cold — with average temperatures in the single figures. Bear in mind that in the mountains the June, July and August are the rainiest months, both in terms of the overall amount, and the number of days on which it rains. However, this often takes the form of a thunderstorm in the late afternoon or early evening.
The München-Venezia cycle route follows traffic-free cycleways and quiet roads through Bavaria in southern Germany, the Austrian Tyrol, and the Italian Dolomites. It is possibly the easiest and most scenic route across the Alps.
Through southern Germany there are two variants, which meet up at the Austrian border: one follows the Isar river via the spa town of Bad Tölz (this is the variant described here), while the other goes via the Tegernsee.
The two variants come together again just over the Austrian border. The route then continues to the Achensee. From Maurach on the Achensee, it descends fairly steeply down into the valley of the river Inn before continuing following the Inn Radweg, possibly Austria’s premier cycleway. The Inntal is a broad river valley cutting its way west to east through the Alps, with villages high on the valley sides. As well as the dramatic scenery, this is an area with a rich history.
The route climbs from the Inn valley through the Wipptal to the pass at Brenner (1370m). There are a couple of options, but whichever one you take you are looking at a climb with a total altitude gain of over 1000 metres.
With the climb over, there’s a long descent towards Fortezza Franzensfeste where the main route turns east into the PusterTal (Puster Valley). The views of the Dolomites get ever more impressive as you head towards Toblach. At Toblach, you connect with the cycleway that follows the old railway line that once ran through the heart of the Dolomites. A short climb (a little over 300 metres altitude gain) takes you to the Passo Cimabanche and the border with the Veneto, and another long, and very scenic, descent down through Cortina d’Ampezzo and then on from there into the valley of the Piave river, following the historic Via Alemagna.
The final sections skirt the foothills of the Alps before turning south towards Treviso. From Treviso, the route follows the river Sile as it meanders towards the Laguna di Venezia (Venetian lagoon).
- the altstadt (old towns) in Bad Tölz, Schwaz, Hall in Tirol and Innsbruck
- the Achensee
- the Hungerburgbahn funicular in Innsbruck
- the Inn valley and Wipptal
- the historic centres of Sterzing (Vipiteno), Brixen (Bressanone), Bruneck (Brunico), and Treviso
A convenient route north over the Alps?
If you’re looking for a route over the Alps through Austria and into southern Germany, then you may be looking at this route and the Via Claudia Augusta. Both take you through some beautiful countryside and atmospheric alpine villages, but they both also have their problematic points: on the Via Claudia it is the crossing over the Fern Pass, and on the München-Venezia it’s the climb from Wiesing to Maurach. If you’re travelling heavily-loaded and looking for a convenient link to get you to the airport at München, I wouldn’t really recommend either.
It may be that the best option is to go round the mountains by following the Inn Radweg north either to Rosenheim where you can pick up the Mangfall Radweg to München, or continue to Passau where the Inn joins the Donau (Danube). I say may as I haven’t yet had the chance to test it out. For a guide to the Mangfall Radweg (in German) see: radtourenchef.de: Mangfall Radweg.
There are four places where you have a choice of variants
- between München and Achenkirch you have the option of following the Isar river via the pretty spa town of Bad Tölz or going via the Tegernsee (which I assume is also pretty)
- on the outskirts of Innsbruck you have the option of continuing into the city’s aldstadt (historic centre) and on from there to the Brenner pass, or taking a slightly longer, but a little less steep, route towards the pass
- north of Brixen (Bressanone) you can opt to make a shortish detour to see the town (definitely don’t miss it)
- in the final stretch as you approach Venezia you have the option of heading for Jesolo and the Venezia Lido on the islands on the eastern edge of the Venetian lagoon. This is worth considering if you plan to consider south towards Chioggia and Ravenna or if you are looking for more economical accommodation
In addition to these options, I would also highly recommend a side trip to the Pragser Wildsee (Lago di Braies) which is quite possibly the most beautiful lake in the Dolomites. (But note that the climb get to it is pretty steep).

This route connects with several national and international cycle routes, so there are lots of possibilities for customising your itinerary. Here are a few.
The route connects with the the Inn Radweg, one of Austria’s premier cycleways, near Jenbach. The Inn is a tributary of the Donau (Danube) which it joins at Passau, so you could follow the Inn Radweg from Passau (or Rosenheim). The Innradweg continues from Innsbruck to Imst where it connects with the Via Claudia, and from there you can continue on to Italy and the Reschen Pass.
In Italy you could continue south from Brixen towards Bozen (Bolzano) and from there follow the Adige (Etsch river) as it heads south towards the sea. You could follow it, along one of Europe’s best traffic-free cycleways, to Verona, or turn of to the Lago di Garda.
Again in Italy, you could continue from Toblach (Dobbiaco) to Innichen (San Candido) and from there follow the Drau (Drava) as it heads from its source near Toblach to the Donau.

The Flughafen München (Munich airport) is to the north-east of the city. You can catch the S-Bahn to the Hauptbahnhof in the centre of town (the journey takes about 40 minutes). Note that there are restrictions on when you can travel with a bike: according to mvv-muenchen.de, you may not take your bike on trains during the rush hour (i.e. Mondays to Fridays between 6:00 and 9:00 and, between 16:00 and 18:00 during school term times). Bike tickets cost 3€. Check the page for the detail on tandems, folders and bikes with small wheels (not to mention ‘fairy cycles’, whatever they are).
Alternatively, the Isar river and Isarradweg pass close to the airport so that you could follow the cycleway through München. You have the option of riding either bank, but you’ll need to cross the river if you want to follow the main cycleway which is on the right bank (looking in the direction the river is flowing). According to the Open Street Map, there’s a cycleway that takes you from the Besucherpark along the Nordallee. It then follows the B301 south to the Grünecker Straße where you turn right and cross over the river.
As you’d expect, there are frequent train services to München Hauptbahnhof from a wide range of European cities.
München has a well-established network of cycleways, so it’s relatively easy to pick up the route direct from the station — although you may find that you need to get off and push your bike through the pedestrian zone if you want to take the direct route through the Altstadt.
… and getting back
Venezia’s Marco Polo airport is relatively close to the centre of Mestre, and you can reach while avoiding the main road, by going from Mestre to Favaro Veneto, and then heading for Tessera.
Treviso airport is also a short train ride away.
Trains and coaches
The most convenient option for returning from Venezia to München is the DB-ÖBB Eurocity service via Innsbruck. There are places for 16 bikes on each train This is the most direct train with the shortest journey time, however, there are only two departures a day, arriving in München in the evening. There are earlier departures from Verona, and you can take a regional train from Venezia to Verona.
Another option would be to take an ÖBB Railjet or Intercitybus via Udine to Villach, and change trains there - journey times are a little longer but not by very much, so they are worth considering.
There are at least two companies offering coach transfers back from Venezia. The ones I know about are: Zion Reisen (zionreisen.eu) and Schmid Reisen (bikeshuttle.at).
Places to stay
Hotels and B&Bs
There are plenty of hotels and accommodation along the way, generally reasonably priced.
One thing to bear in mind if you are planning to stay overnight in München is that if there is a major trade show, prices on everything from hostels upwards can triple. If you can choose when to travel, it is worth using booking.com to research prices before you book your travel tickets. Another event to bear in mind is the Oktoberfest which, despite the name, starts around September 20th.
My favourite place to stay is the Bold Hotels hotel in München centre which is an easy bike ride from the station. It also has a car park where you can leave your bike (and the rooms have handy bike-sized balconies, but whether you are officially allowed to store your bike on the balcony, I don’t know).
Find and book places to stay with Booking.com
Booking.com pages for places on this section of the route:
München | Bad Tölz | Hall in Tirol | Innsbruck | Sterzing (Vipiteno) | Brixen (Bressanone) | Bruneck (Brunico) | Toblach (Dobbiaco) | Cortina d’Ampezzo | TrevisoMestre | Venezia | Jesolo | Venezia Lido
About these links
If you use these links to book accommodation Booking.com will pay me a small part of their commission. This helps support the costs of producing this site.
I use Booking.com to find and book places to stay when there are no campsites in the area. The large majority of hotels and many hostels are now on ‘Booking’. I like it because it means that I can get almost-instant confirmation. The rating system is also a reliable guide to the quality of the accommodation.
I’ve never had a problem finding places to keep my bike —even if it’s a cupboard or store room. I always use the ‘special requests’ field on the booking form to tell the hotel that I’m travelling with a bike, which gives them the opportunity to let me know if there’s a problem.
Many properties offer free cancellation but it’s a good idea to check the conditions as these vary from property to property.
There are a dozen hostels on the section of the route through Germany and Austria, although most of these are in München and Innsbruck.
There are only three hostels along the Italian section of the route. There are several hostels in Venezia, but if you are travelling with a bike you won’t be able to get to them unless you can dismantle it put it in a bag (but I wouldn’t recommend trying to haul a bike bag around Venezia at busy times).

There aren’t a huge number of campsites on the German section of the route, but there are enough. There’s a much greater choice along the route through Austrian, although there is no campsite between Innsbruck and Sterzing on the Italian side of the Brenner Pass.
In Italy, there’s a reasonable choice of campsites along the northern part of the route, but none on the southern section until you get to the coast.

Transport and services
Ferry and boat services on the Laguna di Venezia
The Tronchetto to Lido di Venezia car ferry
Bikes are allowed onto the number 17 car ferry service that runs from the terminal on Tronchetto island to the Lido di Venezia. For more information about the ‘Ferry Boat’ service see: actv.avmspa.it: actv-ferry-boat. There’s an ACTV ticket office on the Tronchetto.
The service runs every 50 minutes. I think that tickets cost €7.50 plus €1 for your bike. You should be able to download the pdf timetable from this page: muoversi.venezia.it: orari servizio di navigazione or from actv.avmspa.it: timetable download page.
Other boat services on the Laguna di Venezia
Apart from the number 17 ferry service, you can take bikes on only two of the ACTV vaporetti services on the Laguna di Venezia
- the number 14 (Punta Sabbioni to the Lido di Venezia)
- the number 11. This runs from the Lido di Venezia to Chioggia with two waterborne sections: Alberoni to Santa Maria del Mare, and Pellestrina to Chioggia
On Saturdays and public holidays the number 11 service between Pellestrina and Chioggia is reinforced by a dedicated service for cicloturisti. The boat can carry 40 bikes, and sails 6 times a day. There may be additional services on other days - download the timetable for details.
You can download the timetables as pdfs from actv.avmspa.it: timetable download page.
In addition to the ACTV services there are privately-run services from the Fusina ferry terminal (note this is separate from the Fusina port). On Saturdays, you can take their boat service from Fusina to Alberoni on the eastern edge of the lagoon. Note: you need to call reserve your place. For timetable and contact details go to terminalfusina.it.
Ferries from Venezia
From Venezia you can catch ferries to Croatia, Greece and other destinations in the eastern Mediterranean. There are three ferry terminals:
- the Venezia Terminal Passeggeri
- the San Basilio pier
- the Venice RO Port ‘Motorways of the Sea’ ferry terminal at Fusina
The San Basilio jetty and Venezia Terminal Passeggeri are a short distance apart in Venezia itself, while the ferry terminal at Fusina is 10 kilometres south of Venezia — so be sure to check which terminal the ship leaves from before you book or make other travel arrangements.
Reaching the three terminals is relatively straightforward, but it’s worth checking the map first.
The cycleway from Mestre, which runs beside the SR11 road across the causeway that links Venezia with the mainland, brings you to the port area. You’ll need to get information from your ferry operator on which of the terminal buildings you should head for. Don’t follow the signs for the ‘ferry-lido’ as this takes you over a bridge to the Tronchetto ferry terminal.
To get to the San Basilio pier, you need to take the Calle Dietro ai Magazzini from the junction with the Ponte della Libertà.
Venice RO Port ‘Motorways of the Sea’ ferry terminal is at Fusina, about 10 kilometres south of Mestre. (Note that there are two ferry terminals at Fusina — the other just offers a passenger ferry to Venezia).
Getting the Venice RO Port is pretty straightforward, but if you don’t do anything else be sure to stay off the SS309. This is on my list of The Most Horrible Roads in Italy. The route I would suggest is to take the cycleway that goes under the Mestre station, and then continue through Marghera heading for the village of Malcontenta, and then take the SP23 (Via Moranzani). A slightly longer, but possibly more scenic option is to follow the cycle route on the right bank of the Naviglio del Brenta and then cross back over and head for the ferry terminal.
At Malcontenta you definitely should make the short detour to see the Villa Foscari (‘La Malcontenta’) designed by the architect Andrea Palladio. If you don’t have much time you can just admire it from the waterside, but it’s worth the visit to see the frescoes in the reception rooms.
Bike shops and bike hire
The individual sections of this guide list bike shops along the way.
The most promising option for renting a bike in München looks to be bikebringer.de who offer respectable-looking trekking bikes plus accessories including child seats and pannier bags. As you’d expect from the name, they offer a delivery and collections service, but they are also based close to the route in Sendling to the south of the city centre.
If you’re starting from Innsbruck you could try Die Boerse. They say
We can grant almost any equipment wish this includes touring bikes (or even e-touring bikes) and child trailers. Their website doesn’t say anything about delivery and collection. Thanks to Joel R for the suggestion.
Please drop me a line if you have any feedback or other options.
Storage for bike bags etc in München
The München tourist office have published a useful page on the left luggage facilities at the München stations (muenchen.de: left-luggage) . There’s a similar page on the MVV website (München public transport). Both have maps to help you find the Gepäck-aufbewahrung (left-luggage offices) in the two stations.
The Hauptbahnhof looks like the best bet for long-term storage — offering storage for up to four weeks in the main office, as well as long-term locker hire.
The München airport (flughafen) has left luggage offices (‘Service Center’) in both terminals. You can get further information, and download the price list, from the airport’s website: munich-airport.com: left-luggage.The price list gives the prices per day for storing bulky luggage and bikes, but doesn’t specify whether there is a maximum storage period.
Bike parking and luggage storage in Mestre and Venezia
If you are planning to spend a few days in Venezia, the best option is to find accommodation in Mestre, or on one of the islands, that has somewhere to store your bike.
There’s a Bici Park (bike parking facility) near Mestre station actv.avmspa.it: bicycle park Mestre Venezia. From the pictures I’ve seen, the Mestre facility looks pretty secure, or at least it’s staffed, and the access is controlled. The cost is €0.5 per day. Note: you can’t leave bikes overnight — the Bici Park closes at 19:00 and all bikes must be removed by 19:30.
In Venezia itself, there is parking for 25 bikes beside the Autorimessa Comunale (municipal car-park) at Ponte della Libertà (entry to the right of the vehicles entrance). The operators emphasise that it is not guarded, or monitored by CCTV.
For luggage storage, there’s a Deposito Bagagli (Left Luggage office) at Venezia Mestre station and also at Venezia Santa Lucia. Charges: (per item) €6 for the first 5 hours then €1 per hour for the next seven hours, and and €0.50 for every hour after the first twelve. For more information go to: veneziaunica.it: depositi bagagli or veneziasantalucia.it: Left-Luggage.
Trasbagagli is a private company offering luggage handling and storage services around the city (including at the airport and ferry terminal). I don’t know if they can store bikes (please let me know if you do know).
Transport services for groups
There are probably other companies, but here are links to four firms in the Treviso and Venezia areas who have bike trailers and offer transport services to groups:
- ATVO (San Donà di Piave)
- Global Service (Castelfranco Veneto), also offer vehicle support and luggage transfer services
- Baldoin Viaggi (Treviso)
- Autoservizi Favaretto (Pederobba)

Other useful websites
- mvv-muenchen.de information about public transport including the S-Bahn from the airport (and rules about transporting bikes on local trains: mvv-muenchen.de: bikes)
I use and would highly recommend the Open Street Map digital mapping from openfietsmap.nl. For traditional maps, there are the excellent ADFC-Radtourenkarte. These are 1:150,000 and the Oberbayern München (Blatt 156) covers the route as far as Innsbruck. As a bonus, the maps are waterproof, and you can download the GPS files for all the cycle routes shown on the map (amazon.co.uk: ADFC-Radtourenkarte Oberbayern M).
The muenchen-venezia.info website has information about a couple of tour operators offering holidays on the route:
- Toblach-based Fun-Active offer an 8-night self-guided trip (italybike.info: Munich-Venice)
- Feuer un Eis (based in southern Bavaria) offer a couple of self-guided tours (one is 8 nights long and the other 10 nights) as well as a guided group tour and a shortened version starting in Innsbruck. For more information see: sportive-reisen.de: Radfernweg Muenchen-Venezia
- Vicenza-based GiroLibero offer a seven-night self-guided tour from Bozen in Italy’s Südtirol (girolibero.com: Bolzano-Cortina-Venice)
If you’re wondering: ‘self-guided’ means that the operator transports your luggage and takes care of booking the hotels etc. They also provide maps etc and some degree of backup if you have problems.
