Innsbruck to Verona

Combine the wonderful delights of Italy and Austria

Enjoy the highlights of two countries at once during a cycle tour on this tour from the Austrian city of Innsbruck and the Italian city of Verona. Explore the lively old town in Innsbruck, the centuries-old city of Brixen, the Domplatz in Trento or the idyllic village of Auer, you'll soon realise that this tour simply has it all. On top of that, there are magnificent views from vantage points, excellent cycle paths, cultural highlights and the wonderful culinary delights of Italy and Austria.

Details of the cycle tour from Innsbruck to Verona

Innsbruck offers numerous opportunities for a trip up the mountain before the cycling begins. Via charming Sterzing you continue to Brixen and from there to Bolzano, where the historic Laubengasse invites you to take a stroll.

But you also save some energy for the stage on day 4, which ends with a glass of wine in the pretty village of Auer. On the way to Trento, enjoy the landscape lined with fruit trees and vines before finally reaching Verona via Rivalta. But before reaching your destination, be sure not to pass by two Trentino gems, the beautiful Rovereto and the magnificent velvet town of Ala.

Highlights of the Innsbruck to Verona tour at a glance:

  • The Golden Roof in Innsbruck: The famous landmark has now been shaping its home for over 500 years. You should not only look at the 2,657 fire-gilded copper tiles but also at the places underneath.

  • South Tyrolean wine and fruit: The mildly sunny yet windy climate makes all the difference - the fruit varieties of apple, pear and apricot thrive particularly well on the alpine southern slopes. But the wine is not to be forgotten. Take time for a rest in this special region.

  • Trento Domplatz: Watch the people strolling, marvel at the artistically painted houses and take a souvenir photo at the Neptune Fountain - the central square of the northern Italian city invites you to linger.

  • Cycle around the Arena di Verona: Very few cities exude this much charm and romance, but Verona is one of them. You could certainly fall in love here every day! Why not pay a visit to Juliet's balcony and take a spin around the third largest amphitheatre still standing?

Itinerary

Welcome briefing and bike fitting. For the rest of the day, we recommend visiting Innsbruck’s famous old town with its City Tower and its “Golden Roof”.

After breakfast, we will take you up to the Brenner Pass (by train or minibus). From the small border town Brenner you will cycle on a newly extended bike path, mostly along the river Eisack, first to the little village Gossensass and immediately afterwards to Sterzing, the once mighty city of the Fugger. You will continue your tour to Thumberg, to the beautiful Reifenstein Castle, and via Stilfes and Mittenwald to Franzensfeste with its famous fortress. The bike path continues to the beautiful and quiet Lake Varna, to Varna itself and finally to Brixen, today's destination.

You will ride your bike through the Dürer town Klausen along the river Eisack to Waidbruck (view of Castle Trostburg). Here, the valley starts geting narrower and leads into the Bolzano basin. The city where two cultures meet is awaiting its visitors with many attractions (Archaeological Museum with Ötzi, the Iceman – free admission with BrixenCard on day of arrival).

Today you will pedal through numerous orchards and vineyards in the area of the South Tyrolean wine route, past many castles and ruins to the wine village Appiano and further to Lake Caldaro. You will stay overnight in the cosy wine town Auer.

Today's route will mainly take you along the beautiful bike path along the Adige river and partially through beautiful orchards to Salurn where the German speaking South Tyrol ends. The dam pathways lead to Trento with its lovely old town.

On this stage you will notice the Adige valley getting narrower and narrower. At the same time the mountain ranges, on which for many centuries impressive castles guarded over one of the most important trade routes, are getting closer and closer. We recommend a visit to Rovereto and the city of Mozart, Ala. Then you will continue your tour on the bike path to Rivalta.

On the seventh day, you will cycle on the well-built bike trail along the river Adige to Verona. There are just a few stops along the way.

Departure or extension of the cycling holiday with extra nights.

Route information

You will cycle on beautiful bike paths along the river valleys of Eisack and Adige. From Verona you will pedal mostly on side roads with little traffic. You will be taken up to the Brenner Pass from where the route will take you downhill 1,300 meters in altitude. There are only a few short climbs on Lake Caldaro and before Verona. This is a bike tour for everyone!
