Via Claudia Augusta

Across the Alps from AUGSBURG to MERANO

Out of the city and into nature!
The cycle path leads from the local recreation area of the Augsburg forest along the Lech river through botanical treasures and the Lech heathlands and passes on the lead by Schongau to the gentle hills of the Pfaffenwinkel nature region all the way to Forggensee, the Füssen bathtub. After a short intermezzo with King Ludwig’s visions in his castle of Neuschwanstein your cycle trip proceeds past the Füssener Lechfall, then the cycle path continues along river Lech into the Tyrolean Alps. From Reutte an organised shuttle-transfer takes you to Fernsteinsee Castle and the cycle path takes you through the picturesque Gurgltal (Gurgl Valley) and into the Upper Inn Valley. Another shuttle-transfer takes you from Landeck to Nauders on the Reschenpass.
From Reschensee in South Tyrol you take the Adige Cycle Path, along the playful river, through the lush fruit growing landscapes of the sun-drenched Vinschgau valley to the spa town of Merano.
