Arrival recommendation

Bahnhofsplatz in Donauwörth, Foto von Colin Smith

We recommend that you cycle to Donauwörth, which is well connected to the international network of cycling paths. Alternatively, take a train to the Donauwörth intercity railway station. If you are arriving by car, you can leave your car at the parking lot on Neue Obermayerstraße while you explore the area by bike. Consider arriving a day early so that you can start your cycling tour well rested and see a little of this lovely town before you set out. If you are missing any bicycle equipment, there are two well-stocked specialist shops in town: Uhl and Brachem.

Cycling route in Donauwörth

Radroute, historische interaktive Karte mit Symbolen

From the railway station, the route takes you across the island of Ried, where the first settlements of Donauwörth were established. You then reach the modern town center with the beautiful Reichsstraße street. Drop into the tourist information office if you still need any guides, maps or other paperwork, then continue across the Danube and southwards.

Returning to Donauwörth after your cycling tour

Cycling route from the Danube to Augsburg

Radroute, historische interaktive Karte mit Symbolen

Before you really get going, consider taking a little detour to see the confluence of the Zusam and Danube. This used to be the end point of the old Roman road. Today, a reproduction of an ancient milestone reminds passers-by of this significant spot. Afterwards, the cycling route takes you southwards through meadows, fields and pretty villages. Between Mertingen and Druisheim, you will find a notice board telling you about Submuntorium, the Roman fortress which used to stand here. In Ostendorf, the route crosses the Lech river to guide you through the floodplains of the Lech. The section between Stettenhofen and Gersthofen largely follows the original route of the Roman road along the left side of the river. It then continues towards Augsburg along the right-hand riverbank.

Cycling route through Augsburg

Radroute, historische interaktive Karte mit Symbolen

In Augsburg, you can either follow the Lech or cross the MAN bridge in the north to take in the city itself. Augsburg used to be the provincial capital during Roman times and the home of the rich and influential Fugger family. Much of the route across the city follows the original Roman road: it leads past the Cathedral of Augsburg (which has a corner dedicated to local archaeological findings), across the Rathausplatz square with the Augustusbrunnen (a 16th-century fountain with a statue of Emperor Augustus), and the grand Maximilianstraße boulevard with its two fountains depicting Mercury and Hercules, respectively. The Basilica of SS. Ulrich and Afra and the Fugger houses are also situated on Maximilianstraße. Continue little further to the east and you will see the Fuggerei, the world’s first social housing complex. The route now takes you past the botanics and back to the Lech river, where its two branches reunite. Head south through the Siebentischwald forest.

In Landsberg am Lech, you have two options. Either follow the cycling route through the villages to the west of the city, largely following the Roman road, or take a detour through the old town. The second option initially crosses the west of the city, which began to develop in the 19th century. The bridge taking you to the medieval old town is located exactly where the old bridge of the salt road used to be. On the other side of the Lech, you will see the picturesque main square of the city with the old town hall and the Schmalzturm tower, through which the salt road entered the old town. Merge with the cycling route again and cross the old salt road. In the Middle Ages, it connected the city with the medieval successor of the Via Claudia Augusta.

After you leave Landsberg, the cycling route departs from the old Roman road to traverse the picturesque villages of the Fuchstal valley: Oberdießen, Unterdießen, Asch, Leder and Denklingen. It then leads back to the Roman road, which traces the beautiful high banks of the Lech until Kinsau. There used to be a Roman fort on the Lorenzberg, a hill that is now home to the Lorenzkirche (Church of St. Laurence) in Epfach. A little Roman museum shows you what it looked like. Having left Kinsau, the route continues to follow the Roman road through Hochenfurch and Schwabniederhofen before reaching Altenstadt, the original parish of Schongau.

After Schongau, the cycling route leads through the hills of the Allgäu region: verdant forests and lush pastures, richly punctuated by lakes and ponds. This may well be the section of the route that follows the original Roman road for the greatest distance. It first takes you to Burggen, where you can see the St.-Anna-Straße, a listed street lined with typical, regional farmhouses. The next village is Lechbruck am See, a rafters’ village. Consider visiting the Auerberg and Bernbeuren with its Auerberg museum en route. On your way to Rosshaupten, you will pass many ponds, the Sameister-Kapelle chapel, a picturesque rest spot on a hill (featuring a much-photographed replica of a Roman milestone) and the Via Claudia Augusta Kunstpark (an open-air exhibition). Do not miss the Bavarian Via Claudia Augusta documentation center in Rosshaupten. From Rosshaupten, the cycling route follows the shore of the Forggensee reservoir until Rieden, where you can enjoy a ‘Roman beach’. Here, the original road is buried on the bottom of the reservoir. It becomes visible whenever the water level is low.

Initially, the route continues to run along the shore of the Forggensee reservoir. You are constantly treated to spectacular views of Neuschwanstein Castle and the city. The first landmark you will spot in Füssen is ‘Ludwig’s Festspielhaus’, a musical theater. Up until the tourist information office, you will be cycling along the old Roman road. From there, push your bike - on the original route - through the old town. The Reichenstraße is a pedestrian area today. Look up and you will see the High Castle of Füssen towering above the town. The actual cycling route runs around the west of the town center.  At the bridge over the Lech river, you can take a detour to Schwangau and the famous royal castles of the region. Alternatively, you can head straight to Pinswang in Tyrol along the partially graveled ‘Fürstenweg’ road. After crossing the bicycle bridge in Füssen, the route follows the Lech before taking you Tyrol along a beautiful country road.

Gateway to the Alps

The Roman road entered the Alps as if through a gateway. As the Lech often occupied the entire valley, it already had to overcome two elevations up to the Reutte valley basin – between Stiglberg and Kratzer and at the Kniepass. The route of the Roman road remained in use until 1784 and the modern road still crosses the Kniepass today. Before climbing to Ehrenberg, the Via Claudia Augusta passed through the municipality of Breitenwang, where a road station (mansio) and the fifirst small settlement in the valley basin are thought to have been located. Reutte developed at a later stage – on the salt road. Breitenwang still remains the district’s ecclesiastic centre today.


1504

Reutte flourishes

With its extensive floodplains, the Lech also shaped the valley basin back in 1504 that depended significantly for its livelihood on the salt road between Hall in Tirol and the Lake Constance area. A bridge was built in 1464 between Lechaschau and Reutte that replaced the Lech ford near Höfen. With its salt depot and numerous roadside inns, Reutte grew into the centre of the Ausserfern district and in 1489 it was granted market rights by Sigesmund “the Rich”. Ehrenberg Castle throned above the valley. A wall blocked the gorge and all traffic had to pass through the customs station gate. There was an ironworks near Pflach. Vils, not yet part of Tyrol, was a town since 1327 and enclosed by a wall with two gates in the north and south.


1780

strongly fortified

Numerous fortifications in the border area between Bavaria and Tyrol shaped the area around 1780. In addition to the dam at Ehrenberg that had grown around two further fortresses, there were several outer fortresses. The market town of Reutte at their feet already had around 1,000 inhabitants and several new roads were completed. The road from Reutte via Vils to Kempten now passed by the walled city to the south, while that from Füssen to Pinswang went around the Stiglberg. The Ulrichs-brücke bridge was not constructed until 1914. Shortly after the turn of the century, the existing Bavarian local railway was also extended to join the Ausserfern railway that initially went to Reutte. The river was largely unregulated even around Reutte.

Leave the old town of Füssen and cross the Lech river. Make sure you look back at the town from the south bank of the river: the view is wonderful! As you enter Austria, the cycling route runs parallel to the Lech river and the picturesque, old country road, parts of which are lined with trees. It departs from the river to cross the quaint villages of Unterpinswang and Oberpinswang before crossing the Kniepass to Pflach, just like the old Roman road did. At the edge of the Lech floodplains, the route crosses verdant pastures to lead you into the district capital of Reutte.

The cycling route runs from the fields near the Lech into the center of the market town, where it initially takes you through the Untermarkt pedestrian area. At the roundabout, you enter the Obermarkt. You are now cycling along the salt road. Do not miss the turns leading towards the hospital and, a little later, to Ehrenberg. As you ascend the hill towards Burgenwelt Ehrenberg (the Ehrenberg castle ensemble), the steeper salt road gives way to a gravel path. Unfortunately, the steadily ascending Roman road has only been preserved partially.

Masterful roads

The aim of the Roman road builders was to construct the quickest route from the Adriatic and the Po to the limes. Even in Tirol the Via Claudia Augusta therefore only has four hairpin bends. Nevertheless, the ffiirst trans-European road has a relatively constant incline even over the challenging sections across the passes. Another outstanding feat is the section on 1,000 tree trunks across the ‘Moos’ wetland habitat between Lermoos, Ehrwald and Biberwier, near to which two settlements were located – one in Ehrwald that already existed before the arrival of the Romans and continued to exist during the Roman era, and one founded by the Romans in the area surrounding the road station in Biberwier, immediately in front of the Fern Pass.


1599

Living from the road

While the Roman road was sustained by the fiffiirst European single market with no customs or tolls, the era of the salt road was shaped by the transport of goods. The local residents had the exclusive privilege of transporting certain goods such as salt from one place to the next. The population along the route benefiffiited from both of these systems. The population of Zwischentoren, the area between the Ehrenberg and Fernstein gates, is thought only to have become properly aware of this when the Arlberg Pass was made navigable again. As the traffiffiic shifted away, they became desperately poor. After meeting to say farewell at Austria’s only guild church in Bichlbach, many people from the Ausserfern district were forced to move as building workers to the neighbouring regions to the north. Children also moved away as ‘Swabian children’.


1926

Further development

A new wave of development started in the second half of the nineteenth century from Zwischentoren, the area between the two gates of Ehrenberg and Fernstein through which the Fern Pass road passed until 1856. It was then that today’s road was built. In 1913 the Ausserfern railway was extended that had previously terminated in Reutte. As an alternative to the completed route via Garmisch and on to Innsbruck, there was also talk of a line across the Gaistal, Leutasch and Seefeld. Furthermore, there were plans for a rail link to Imst with a summit tunnel through the Fern Pass of the sort currently being planned for cars. The Tyrolean Zugspitze Railway was one of the fiffiirst mountain railways and promot

Radroute, historische interaktive Karte mit Symbolen

Just like the Roman route and the salt road, our cycling route runs through the gate of the Klause Ehrenberg fortress. For many centuries, this was the only way of crossing the reservoir, where carters had to pay a toll. The route then continues along forest trails to Heiterwang am See, taking you through the Klausenwald forest. You will be following the old Roman road all the way to the edge of the town. The salt road will lead you through the town itself in a wide circle. Continue to Bichlbach along picturesque pastures. In the distance, you will see the Mähberg, a mountain whose pastures were mowed until the late twentieth century. The cycling road takes you through Bichlbach along the Dorfstraße, which is largely equivalent to the Roman road. Cycle past pastures and through forests to reach Wengle, Lähn and the valley between Lermoos, Ehrwald and Biberwier.

At the edge of Lermoos, the cycling route runs underneath the Fernpass highway – today’s incarnation of the Via Claudia Augusta, in a way. A little further down the road, the highway disappears in to the Leermoos tunnel. You will be following the dam of the Ausserfernbahn railway before heading towards Biberwier through the beautiful “Moos” marshlands, which stretch between the three towns. In Biberwier, you will pass the location of a Roman road station that was unearthed by archaeologists a few years ago. Having crossed the quaint little town, you start the ascent to the Fernpass.

Old settlement area

There is documentary evidence of “Oppidum Humiste” dating back to 763. Oppidum was a fortifified pre-Roman settlement. Its mention after the Roman era points towards continuous settlement since pre-Roman times that will have been concentrated on the hill above Imst town centre. There are also indications of prehistoric settlement in Dormitz near Nassereith. The Romans established road stations in both places along the Via Claudia Augusta, around which settlements developed. In Imst, which was the most important settlement between Füssen and Merano, this was probably parallel to the pre-Roman settlement. There was also prehistoric and Roman settlement on the sunny slopes of the Tschirgant, in Karrösten and Karres.


1550

Mining stronghold

The area around the Via Claudia Augusta between Biberwier and the Inn Valley was an important mining centre in multiple respects. Signifificant historic mining districts were located in the Mieming mountain range in the east, the Lechtal Alps in the north and on the slopes of the Tschirgant in the south. Numerous tunnel entrances await discovery on close examination particularly in the Wannig rock face above Nassereith. Above all lead was mined as a grey ore for silver mining in Schwaz and Zink. Furthermore, Imst, alongside its importance as a market place and traffic hub, was the seat of the mining court covering an area that reached to the Ausserfern district and Vorarlberg.


1901

Long prevented town

Imst has for thousands of years been the most important settlement between Füssen and Merano and an important traffiffiific hub. It has had market rights since late medieval times and from the fifteenth to the seventeenth centuries it was the seat of a mining court covering an area that reached to the Ausserfern district and Vorarlberg. Had the infflluential lords of Starkenberg not opposed this because Imst would then have been directly subordinate to the territorial prince, the Gurgltal metropolis would have been a town with its own walls for 700 years. Following a ffiire in 1822 to which 206 out of 220 houses fell victim, Imst was rebuilt and ffiinally received town rights in 1898. Imst is also renowned for its bird breeders and dealers.

Cycling across the Fernpass

Radroute, historische interaktive Karte mit Symbolen

Crossing the pass on your own is hard work. But your efforts will pay off: this section of the route treats you to incredible views of the landslide site and multiple longer stretches of the Roman Via Claudia Augusta and its medieval successor road. And you will certainly feel accomplished when you reach the top. We recommend that you allow for more time per kilometer than you do for other sections. You might end up pushing your bicycle a few hundred meters. The Romans doubtlessly got off their carriages often to help the draft animals.  If you would rather not dare the climb, you can book a shuttle by text message and be taken over the pass in comfort. From Biberwier, the cycling route runs along the country road for a while. It then forks to the left, and a forest path takes you past the Weissensee lake to the old top of the Fernpass. In one spot, the forest path briefly approaches the national road. If you head to the other side, you can take a little road to the Blindsee lake, a popular alpine swimming lake. Once you reach the old  top of the Fernpass, which dates back to the Romans, you will have spectacular views of the landslide site and at least five roads that led across the Fernpass over the centuries. The clearly visible track of the Roman road forks off the forest road to the left a little later and gently slopes down the hill. Initially, the cycling route follows the forest road. It then forks towards the current top of the Fernpass. Having crossed the plateau, it runs along the late medieval road to the ‘Afrigall’, a section of the mountain lowered by a landslide. Cycle along forest roads and some narrow gravel paths until you reach Schloss Fernstein castle, where the route leads you through the gate of the former toll station.

Early densely populated

Already in early history, the area around Landeck was relatively densely populated. Above Schönwies, in Stanz and Grins, in Perjen, in Fließ, at the entrance to the Kaunertal, in Fiss and Serfaus, ... - on every sunny slope and every high terrace settlements are proven or at least there are indications of settlement. The settlements were connected by cart paths. In addition to one in the Inn valley, there was also a shortcut from the Kaunertal valley over the Piller Sattel to Imst. Above Fliess was a burnt offering site where gods were invoked for centuries, until Roman times. In the archaeological museum of Fliess you can marvel at early historical finds from this time, which you can otherwise only find in such abundance and quality in large cities.


450

early Christian churches

In the Landeck area the Via Claudia Augusta largely ran along the slope – the section between the Inn bridge near Starkenbach and Landeck followed the striking and picturesque route over the “Platte” to Fließ, where ruts in the rock dating from different periods tell stories about the road.  The Via Claudia Augusta only left the slope in the vicinity of Landeck Castle – presumably because there was a road station there and the road branched off over the Arlberg. The important transport connection not only brought economic development but also a lively cultural exchange that is reflected among other things in the area’s early Christianisation. The parish church in Landeck and St. Lawrence’s Church on the hill above Imst have their roots in the fififth century, while the ‘Maaßkirche’ church next to the archaeological museum in Fließ dates back to the sixth century.


1787

Landeck as a transport hub

Two long-distance roads already converged for the first time back in Roman times at the confluence of the Sanna and the Inn. In 1787 the road to Vorarlberg, that had for a long time no longer been navigable, was renewed and restored to new life and the valley basin finally became a transport hub. The rest was done by the construction of the Arlberg railway in 1884, during which 800 jobs were also created and the population grew rapidly. Around 1900, the municipalities of Perfuchs and Angedair were merged into Landeck, that gained market rights in 1904 and became a town in 1923. Landeck had already been a municipal centre since 1868 when there was not yet even a place called Landeck but only the castle. The loser of the shift of the east-west traffic corridor to the Arlberg route was incidentally Zwischentoren, between Fernstein and Reutte. Many of the bitterly poor people of Ausserfern consequently became migrant workers in the more prosperous neighbouring regions to the north.

It takes you past the Trofana Tyrol motorway service area and the Milser Au meadow, both perfect for an extended rest. The village road that takes you through Mils is largely equivalent to the Roman road. After you cross the Inn river, the route takes you through the elongated village of Schönwies, far away from traffic. Past the village, the cycling route passes the head of the old bridge over the Inn, which stood in the same place as an older Roman bridge until the 19th century. Shortly after you cycle through an underpass underneath the railway tracks, you have an opportunity to visit Kronburg castle. Afterwards, the route takes you through verdant meadows towards Zams. Don’t miss the Roman wheel tracks in the rocks at the rest stop on the hill.

Text of the historical maps of ...
100 AD

Road mostly at valley floor

Owing the narrowness of the valley, which was at risk of rockfall and often entirely flooded by the Inn, the Via Claudia Augusta ran along the slope between Landeck and Fließ, across the Fliesser Platte in which the carts left traces in the rock in the different periods. Back in the valley, the Roman road was then able to continue – with various river crossings – along the valley floor until Altfinstermünz, as nature narrowed the course of this section of the Inn. From Finstermünz the road climbed steadily at a gradient of 11% up through the gorge to Inutrium, the only road station for which there is written evidence, shortly before reaching its highest point, the Reschen Pass. There are thought to have been two more road stations between Prutz and Pfunds. Fließ and Inutrium were definitely inhabited.


1530

Road and mining

The Roman road largely remained in use in the Middle Ages and modern era. Fortresses such as Pidenegg, Pernegg, Laudegg, Siegmundsriedt, Finstermünz and Naudersberg lined the transport routes. Apart from the main roads, there were almost only mule tracks. As well as self-sufficient farming and earnings opportunities in connection with the road, income was also generated by mining – first in Kaunertal, then in Bergtal and later in Platzertal. Ore was also extracted in Serfaus and smelted in Fließ.


1910

New transport routes

For a long time there were discussions about how to modernise the Reschenstrasse. The modern road builders finally got their way and the road was constructed between 1852 and 1856 with hairpin bends and galleries many of which are still in use today. Roads were also built to the Engadine, to Samnaun and to the mines of Platzertal. The ore was also transported with a goods cable lift. As well as investments in the roads, there were also two different plans for a rail link across the Reschen Pass for which a large number of tunnels would have been necessary. The northernmost fortress of Austria-Hungary facing Italy bears witness to the strategically important location of the pass.

The cycling route continues along the old national road, which largely corresponds to the Roman road. Today, it is the domain of hikers, cyclists and those who live nearby.

After you cross the center of Prutz, you enter a new cycling path which takes you past the local swimming lake to Ried im Oberinntal and Tösens. Towards Pfunds, the cycling route takes you past picturesque ponds along the old national road, following the Roman road on the western slopes of the mountain. It then crosses the valley and leads you into the village of Pfunds. An old tower bridge over the Inn incorporates Stuben, the historically grown center of the village, into the cycling route. It then follows the Inn river to the historical toll station of Altfinstermünz. Before reaching the toll station, the Roman road (identical with this section of the cycling route) runs along the external border between the EU and Switzerland.

If you decide to cycle to the peak of the route yourself, you will first follow a beautiful path along the Inn river to Altfinstermünz before continuing to Martina in Switzerland. (You will cross the external border of the EU: do not forget your passport!) The route then snakes up to the Norbertshöhe pass and runs towards Nauders on the Reschenpass. From there, you follow the old national road to the Reschenpass. Today, it is a single-lane road that is only used by cyclists, pedestrians and local residents. It snakes across beautiful mountain pastures, precisely following one track of the old Roman road (photo point). Unlike the Etschtal cycle path, the Via Claudia Augusta route runs along the same shore of the lakes as the old Roman road did. Today, the Roman road is buried at the bottom of the lake together with the village of Altgraun and its church. After passing the Reschen dam, you enter the quaint village and afterwards the Mals/Malles heath, which the Roman road used to cross.

The Vinschgau cycling route runs along the edge of the Mals/Malles heath, the largest alluvial fan of the Alps. It takes you past the picturesque canals of the health towards the hamlet of Burgeis/Burgusio, overlooked by the Marienberg monastery. Continue to the edge of Mals/Malles, which is lined with many small towers, and cross the hamlets of Schleis/Clusio and Laatsch/Laudes before entering the medieval town of Glurns/Glorenza. The next section of the route takes you through meadows and apple orchards to Spondinig/Spondigna. Before entering the village, you will be treated to a sweeping view of Schluderns/Sluderno and Churburg castle on one side and the ruins of Lichtenberg castle on the other side. When you enter Mals/Malles, you are on the Sonnenberg, which is covered in dry grassland. The route finally crosses the valley through a marshland. At the foothills of the Stilfser Joch pass lies Prad/Prato.

The route crosses the lively, attractive center of the market town. It then leads you to the Etsch river, and you continue to cycle along its shore and through a gorge to Kastelbell/Castelbello. Like everywhere in the Vinschgau valley, cyclists feel extremely welcome in Kastelbell: the cycling route is the main thoroughfare through the village, a position normally reserved for cars. The tourist information office is right on the route. Continue along the Etsch river and the Vinschgerbahn railway. The railway connects the Vinschgau valley with the other regions of South Tyrol, and it caters perfectly to cyclists.

The cycling route crosses apple orchards and verdant meadows, following the Etsch river for long stretches as it leads you to Staben/Stava, Tschirland/Cirlano and Naturns/Naturno. The market town has one of the valley’s most lively centers, offering countless restaurants and shops. Although the cycling route follows the river, you have many opportunities to take a detour to the center. It offers some cultural and historical highlights: the St. Prokulus museum with its didactically well-prepared exhibits and the adjacent Prokuluskirchlein, a little church with spectacular frescoes, some of which date back to the 7th century. Continue along the Etsch river to Plaus and Rabland/Rablà, the site where one of the two historical milestones of the Via Claudia Augusta was discovered. The main district of the municipality of Partschins/Parcines is located a little way uphill from the route. The cycling route continues to the fault scarp at Töll/Tel, the geographical boundary of the Vinschgau valley and the site of a former toll station.

After passing the fault scarp of Töll/Tel, you enter one of the most spectacular sections of the Via Claudia Augusta cycling route. The garden village of Algund/Lagundo welcomes you with a pergola and oversized chairs from which you have a lovely view. A serpentine road takes you down into the village, where you get to enjoy a truly Mediterranean climate. In Algund/Lagundo and the nearby spa town of Meran/Merano, palm trees and other Mediterranean plants abound. Once you reach the bottom, explore the „Brückenkopf“ museum in Algund/Lagundo. It is dedicated to the remains of the Medieval bridge over the Etsch river that used to stand here. This is probably where the Romans crossed the river, too: it is the last possible section for a crossing before the river becomes as wide as the entire valley itself. Afterwards, you can either follow the cycle route to the edge of Meran/Merano and head to the center of the town to admire the famous covered alley or the spa house. Alternatively, cross the river on the wooden bridge in Algund/Lagundo and follow the old road to Marling/Marlengo.

The cycling route follows the Etsch river to Vadena/Pfatten, leading you to the edge of the town of Laives/Leifers and onwards to Bronzolo/Branzoll. Between the two towns, the river used to serve the purpose of an alternative transportation route for heavy loads. Just before you reach Auer/Ora, you can cross from the route along the Etsch river to that along the Wine Road or vice versa. The Wine Road route will lead you through the pretty wine-growing villages of Tramin/Termeno, Kurtatsch/Cortaccia, Magreid/Magrè and Kurtinig/Cortina before taking you to Salorno/Salurn. The route along the river first leads to Auer/Ora. This quaint village is situated at the foot of the striking Castelfeder hill. Afterwards, you cycle through Neumarkt/Egna, where the Roman road station of Endidae used to stand. Laag/Laghetti, a district of Neumarkt/Egna, is probably named after a lake that was created by the drift of the Noce river and separated the valley into two parts. As you approach the gorge, you reach the picturesque town of Salorno/Salurn. Haderburg castle, which towers above the town, was built to protect the strategically significant spot that forms the boundary between the German-speaking and Italian-speaking parts of the region today.

If you simply follow the Etschtal cycle path rather than the route through the Piana Rotaliana, you will miss out on quite a few sights. The plain where the Noce flows into the Etsch river is covered nearly entirely in Teroldego grapevines, a variety of grape that originates here. First, the cycling route takes you to Roverè della Luna and Mezzocorona, the agricultural center of the plain, overlooked by the St. Gotthard castle, which was built into a crevice of the rock. A cable car takes you to the Monte plateau on the summit, offering spectacular views of the plain. Mezzolombardo, the next stop on the route, is the commercial center of the region. Traditionally, San Michele used to be its cultural counterpart on account of its monastery. Today, the former monastery houses the agricultural center of Trentino and an interesting museum of local folklore. In the southern part of the Piana Rotaliana lies the former river port of Nave San Rocco, the asparagus-growing town of Zambana, and the town of Lavis, whose beautiful center and hanging gardens make for a lovely walk.

Cycling route through Trento to the Valsugana

Radroute, historische interaktive Karte mit Symbolen

The Avisio river forms the boundary between Lavis and the northern parts of Trento, the capital of Trentino. The cycling route runs to Lavis at the edge of the village, where it crosses the river. You return to the banks of the Etsch river once again and cycle to the center of Trento at a leisurely pace. Founded during Roman times, it is the birthplace of the Counter-Reformation. The old town was spruced up impressively in the Renaissance style for the Council of Trent. Buonconsiglio castle also reflects the monumental event. Underneath the city, you can visit excavations of the ancient Roman city of Tridentum. The cycling route towards Altino takes you to the north of the city again, where you will climb the ascent between the Etschtal valley and Valsugana, following the track of the old Roman road. You are treated to lovely views of the city behind you. Along the way, you will pass the Ecomuseo Argentario, which documents the silver mining past of the region. Once you reach the Valsugana, the route takes you past a fortress from the First World War and through pretty villages and stunning natural landscapes. In Pergine, you cycle along the Via Maier road, which dates back to the Renaissance. The cycling route continues along the foot of the Castello di Pergine and above Levicosee lake  as you head towards Levico Terme, a spa and garrison town founded by the Habsburgs.

Radroute, historische interaktive Karte mit Symbolen

Once you reach Bieno, you have mastered the hardest part of the ascent. This makes the town feel like a part of the Tesino high plateau. Running through an idyllic landscape, the cycling route crosses a wild stream and takes you past a lake into the picturesque town of Pieve Tesino, which it traverses in its entirety. It is said that the hill above Castello Tesino used to be the site of a Roman fortress. Continue along beautiful mountain roads to Lamon. The Roman road used to cross the gorge of the Senaiga stream on the other side of the valley before traversing the picture-perfect town of San Donato, where a Roman cemetery remains as testimony to an ancient settlement. If you do not mind gravel paths, take this route and be rewarded with stunning nature and fascinating historical insights. Lamon and the next town of Sovramonte are located on the edge of the Dolomiti Bellunesi National Park. Cycle through a ravine just before Sovramonte, then continue steadily towards the Passo Croce D’Aune. A bicycle shuttle is available to take you up to the Tesino High Valley and from Ponte Oltra to the Croce D’Aune Pass. You can book it by text message.

Descend from the Croce D‘Aune Pass towards Feltre along a winding road. You will reach the historic city through Pedavena, which beckons you to take a rest and have a beer at Italy’s largest Birreria. The cycling route takes you through the pedestrian shopping area of Feltre, along the town’s medieval city walls. You can access the historical center by taking the steps or the lift, which departs in a tunnel underneath the city. Having left Feltre, you will cycle through a picturesque boulevard with magnificent views of the Alpine foothills, past the splendid Ville Venete and through quaint villages to reach Cesiomaggiore. This town is the discovery site of one of the two historical milestones that document the construction of the Via Claudia Augusta. The Roman road crossed the river between Santa Giustina and Mel. The cycling route, on the other hand, crosses it between Busche and Cesana: another historical river crossing that functions as a dam for the wild stream today. Downhill from the reservoir lies a popular beach with a café.

Radroute, historische interaktive Karte mit Symbolen

Back in the day, the old Roman road crossed the Piave river on a ford between Santa Giustina and the Nave district of the municipality of Borgo Valbelluna. Its name, ‘Nave’, is a clear indicator. Another Roman crossing probably used to exist where the cycling route crosses the river today, between Busche and Cesana. After you cross the river, you will need to make a decision: either tackle the picturesque Praderadego pass on your own, take a shuttle across the pass (book by text message, www.viaclaudia.org), or leave the Romans’ tracks briefly to follow the river and cycle along a relatively busy road towards Valdobbiadene. You can continue to the southern side of the pass from there. The view from the Praderadego over the Prosecco Hills is well worth it. In clear conditions, you can see all the way to the Venetian Lagoon. The route through the Valbelluna towards Praderadego leads you to Lentiai through several villages. In Bardies, the road starts its ascent towards the pass. From Corte, you can take a detour to the main district of Mel, where the shuttle to the pass departs from the piazza (alternatively, embark in Bardies).

From Bardies, the route starts its ascent towards Praderadego. The road leads you past picturesque villages and the Castello di Zumelle. On the idyllic peak of the pass, a mountain inn and a simple guesthouse await weary travelers. Head a little further and you will be treated to a spectacular view of the Prosecco Hills and the Venetian plain. In good conditions, you can even see the lagoon. Continue down a serpentine road into the Valmareno. Take in the magnificent views of the Renaissance castle of Castelbrando, which is worth a little detour. The cycling route now takes you through the villages of Follina (with a very interesting abbey) and Pieve di Soligo. Cycle past the Castello Collalto to cross the Prosecco Hills before you reach Susegana and Santa Lucia di Piave. As the name suggests, the district of Ponte della Priula, which belongs to Susegana, is home to one of only few bridges across the Piave river. Here, the cycling route switches to the right riverbank. You will see a little of each side of the river, according to the theories of historians who believe that the Roman road Via Claudia Augusta also switched between the two sides.

After you cross the wide riverbed of the Piave, the cycling route reveals the many facets of the Venetian Plain: nature, expansive agricultural fields, sleepy settlements and lively towns make up the area surrounding Treviso. Before you head south, consider visiting Nervesa della Battaglia. Its name and the ruins of the Saint Eustace Abbey are memorials to an especially fierce battle of the First World War. In the north of the municipality, you will find the wine-growing and local recreation area of Montello e Colli Asolani. After Spresiano, the cycling route leads you back to the Piave once more. In Palazzon, you will see the remnants of a medieval river port. Continue to Treviso, passing through Lovandina and Villorba on the way. Villorba is home to particularly many Ville Venete, which are typical of the region. One of them is used representatively by the municipal administration.

It offers an interesting archaeological museum with a three-dimensional model of the port town. If you want to spend a few days relaxing after your big cycling tour, we recommend that you stay in Quarto d’Altino: it is quieter and more reasonably priced. You can take a train or a barca (boat) to Venice from there. Of course, you can also cycle to Trevio or to the Lido di Jesolo.
