Via Claudia Augusta

Across the alps from AUGSBURG to VERONA – sporty

The cycle path leads from the local recreation area of the Augsburg forest along the Lech river through botanical treasures of the Lech heathlands to Schongau. In the distance the silhouette of the Bavarian Alps can already be seen in a tender haze. Past the Füssener Lechfall, the cycle path continues along the Lech into Tyrol's Ausserfern. The rugged elegance of the Lechtal Alps and the Zugspitze mountains flank the cycle path as far as the Ehrwalder Becken, a protected moorland, in whose subsurface parts of a Roman “beating road” of the Via Claudia Augusta are preserved. From Biberwier an organised shuttle-transfer takes you to Fernsteinsee Castle and the cycle path, embedded in the amazing Tyrolian landscape, meanders through the picturesque Gurgltal (Gurgl Valley) and into the Upper Inn Valley until Landeck.
A sporty, serpentine like ascent of approx. 700 metres awaits you between Pfunds and Nauders by Reschensee lake water reservoir. From there 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.
