Route Augsburg – Riva del Garda (11 days)

Day 1: Augsburg
Individual arrival.

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 a must. Schongau features a picturesque old town and almost completely preserved town wall. The stage to Landsberg is thought to be a comfy "run in" on almost flat terrain.

Day 3: Landsberg Region Schongau, approx. 40 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.

Most of the route follows the course of River Adige, you pass by the marble town of Laas, then Naturns and then past the prominent castle of Kastelbell you reach the spa town of Merano. Enjoy an evening walk through town along the "Passer" promenade surrounded by subtropical flora.

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

    Cycle through the alps from Bavaria to northern Italy.

    The level of difficulty was easy, this ride was much easier than we expected or were advised of. We had electric bikes because we thought going through the alps would be hard, but it wasn?t, managing this on non-electric bikes would not be difficult. ...
