Via Claudia Augusta

Across the alps from AUGSBURG to VERONA – classic

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, then the cycle path takes you through the picturesque Gurgltal (Gurgl Valley) to the fountain town of Imst and on to Landeck. 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. Flanked by porphyry walls to the left and olive groves to the right the Adige cycle path steadily leads its way to Verona. The city is like a cultural storybook, and is the magical arena to Shakespeare’s legend of Romeo and Juliet.
