Via Claudia Augusta

Across the alps from AUGSBURG to RIVA del GARDA – classic

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. With another relaxing shuttle-transfer you overcome the climb up 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, via the spa town of Merano and the idyllic shimmering Lake Caldaro to the lovely Castelfeder holiday region. The wine gardens and numerous manorial castles nestle upon the hills and high plateaus around Lake Caldaro and the South Tyrolean lower land flows seamlessly into the famous Trentino. It seems just a stone’s throw from Trento to the deep blue lake Garda and the cragged cliffs and delicate pink blossoms of oleander bushes by Riva del Garda.
