Via Claudia Augusta

Across the Alps from FÜSSEN to RIVA del GARDA – classic

On Roman footsteps!
Your cycling tour starts along the antique route of the Via Claudia Augusta straight through Forggensee lake. 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, 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.
