Innsbruck to Munich

Austria, Germany Bike Tours

Bike the Tyrol and into Bavaria

Embraced by the snowcapped peaks of the Alps, Innsbruck's beauty and medieval wonders have kept it one of Austria's most inspiring cities for centuries. Along the cobblestone streets in the Altstadt (Old Town), you will come across magnificent Gothic architecture as well as Innsbruck’s most famous landmark, the Goldenes Dachl (Golden Roof). Built in 1500, this roof was built for Maximilian I, the Holy Roman Emperor, and is covered with 3000 gold-plated copper tiles. The balcony once served as Maximilian’s "ringside seat" during festive events in the square below. Furthermore, the Hofburg Palace served as his residence during the 15th century (with the paintings of the Habsburg family still visible inside today). Also of note is that Innsbruck is the home of Swarovski Crystal, and has a theme park dedicated to the beautiful crystal art.

Innsbruck is the start of this cycle tour, and a big highlight but there are many more wonders to marvel at. Cycling through both Tyrol (known for its mountains and lakes) and Bavaria (colorful Baroque architecture), you’ll experience many dreamlike mountain backdrops, formidable fortresses and impressive monasteries. The Inn River, the Ziller Valley, the crystal-clear lakes and turquoise-blue rivers will enchant you.
