    VIA CLAUDIA AUGUSTA I

    Augsburg - Merano/Bolzano/Verona

    • Memory of the construction of the Via Claudia Augusta laudia AugustaThe variety of different landscapes along the Via Claudia Augusta and also the many options offered make this bicycle tour a unique adventure which you have to experience for yourself.

      Tour profile / level 2

      Mostly paved cycling paths and rural roads as well as less travelled back roads and village roads -  Shuttle transfer to conveniently manage two challenging mountain passes as of Reutte and Landeck; also for children from the age of 12. (high amount of cycling enthusiasm required)

      Augsburg - Merano (7x nights)

      Day 1: Augsburg
      Visit of the Roman provincial capital „Augusta Vindelicorum“
      Day 2: Augsburg – Landsberg (approx. 50 km)
      The place name Augsburg derives from the Roman name of the town „Augusta Vindelicorum“, which was founded in 15 B.C. under the rule of Emperor Augustus. Augsburg’s popularity however, was established with its role as a Fugger town. Therefore, a visit of the Fuggerei, which is the world’s oldest project for social housing still in use today, is almost a must. The stage to Landsberg is thought to be a comfy „run in“ on almost flat terrain.
      Day 3: Landsberg – Region Schongau (approx. 45 km)
      On the horizon you can already see the Alps but you get to enjoy the beauty of the region Pfaffenwinkel first. Schongau features a picturesque old town and almost completely preserved town walls.
      Day 4: Region Schongau – Füssen/Schwangau (approx. 40 km)
      Having left the old town of Schongau the cycling path along River Lech takes you into the Tyrol. Before heading over the border from Germany to Austria the beautiful fairy tale-like Neuschwanstein castle awaits you.
      Day 5: Füssen/Schwangau – Imst (approx. 40 km | without Transfer approx. 70 km)
      Today the tour takes us from Füssen to Reutte. From there our transfer brings you across Fern Pass in a comfortable way. From Fernstein castle you cycle past Nassereith and through the picturesque Gurgltal Valley to Imst. A “beery” adventure awaits you at the microbrewery at Starkenberg castle.
      Day 6: Imst – Burgusio/Malles/St. Valentin (approx. 55 km | without Transfer approx. 105 km)
      After a hearty breakfast you cycle from Imst to Landeck. From there we take the shuttle up to Nauders. Soon afterwards you cross the border to Italy at Reschen pass and with it the main Alpine ridge. You cycle downwards towards Malles past Reschenstausee reservoir with the sunken church tower of Altgraun, one of the most famous photo motifs of Italy. Enjoy the first evening on South Tyrolean soil and enjoy strolling through the old alleyways of the town.
      Day 7: Burgusio/Malles/St. Valentin – Merano (approx. 65 km)
      Today you cross the entire Val Venosta. The route leads from an altitude of more than 1,000 m down to the town of Merano that is located at an altitude of 350 m. Most of the route follows the course of River Adige. From your starting place this pleasant cycling stretch leads down to the smallest town of the Alps, the town of Glorenza. Past the marble town of Laas you get to Naturns and eventually – past the impressive Kastellbell castle – to the spa town of Merano. Enjoy an evening walk through town along the “Passer” promenade surrounded by subtropical flora.
      Day 8: Merano
      Individual departure or extended stay.

      Augsburg - Bolzano (8x nights)

      Day 1 - 7: Route Augsburg - Merano


      Day 8: Merano - Bolzano (approx. 40 km)
      A handful sights can be seen along this road like the highest peak of a chapel of Southern Tyrol in Terlan and lots of ruins and old castles. As soon as you visit Bolzano you will already get to know Italian Flair in the pedestrian street of the city.
      Day 9: Bolzano
      Individual departure or extended stay.

      Augsburg - Verona (11x nights)

      Day 1 - 7:  Route Augsburg - Merano
      Visit of the Roman provincial capital „Augusta Vindelicorum“


      Day 8: Merano – Castelfeder Region (approx. 50 km)
      There is plenty to see along this route: Niederlana’s famous Schnatterpeckaltar, the largest Gothic wing altar in the Alpine area, the highest church tower of the South Tyrol in Terlan and a great number of fortresses and ruins on both valley slopes. And - after the optional visit of Bolzano - you’ll have the wonderful opportunity to refresh your legs at Lake Caldaro.
      Day 9: Castelfeder Region – Trento (approx. 50 km)
      Today you cycle along River Adige that is lined by orchards until you get to Salorno. The German-speaking part of the South Tyrol ends here. The stage finishes in the town of Trento which features an old town worth seeing with historic buildings like the cathedral and Buonconsiglio castle.
      Day 10: Trento – Region Belluno Veronese (approx. 55 km)
      Along the River Adige you’ll pass Rovereto, Pilcante and Avio until you get to Belluno Veronese. They say that this is where the best wine is made since the 15th century. Even though Veronese is only 10 km away from Lake Garda there is a lot less touristic ado. Enjoy the rural ambience over a glass of local wine.
      Day 11: Region Belluno Veronese – Verona (approx. 55 km)
      Before you’ll reach the city of Romeo & Juliet you’ll have to overcome one more little ascent up to Rivoli Veronese. Have a good time relaxing or strolling or discovering the arena of Verona...
      Day 12:  Verona
      Individual return journey or extension.

      Romance to tragedy: from the romantic road to the setting of the tragedy Romeo and Juliet
