Innsbruck to Munich

Austria, Germany Bike Tours

Bike the Tyrol region 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, and perfect for a start to your bike tour on well sign posted cycle paths (Inn, Lake Constance, Lake Königsee, and Bavarica Tyrolensis.)

    Innsbruck is a big highlight of this tour, 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.

    Highlights:

    • Innsbruck, capital of the Alps
    • Inn Valley and the surrounding mountain ranges
    • Idyllic Austrian villages
    • Panoramic mountain views
    • Pure alpine lakes
    • Cosmopolitan Munich
