Innsbruck : home to many bikes!

Innsbruck, Austria

I have never seen so many bikes in one town as I have seen in Innsbruck, Austria - and I have been to Amsterdam!  Innsbruck has a wide spectrum of different cycling routes and mountain bike tours suitable for families, sports enthusiasts and leisurely cyclists. Ambitious mountain biking fans can tackle challenging tracks in Alpine terrain, while those who prefer to take it easy can enjoy flat routes such as the ‘Genuss.Radweg’ culinary cycle tour. And you don’t have to take your own bike with you – many local outlets offer rental bikes. E-bikes are also available, enabling ‘athletically challenged’ holidaymakers to conquer a hill or two as well! City bikes are available for rental in Innsbruck – perfect for exploring the Capital of the Alps and its surroundings without any arduously long walks.

Do you fancy trying a really long cycling tour? One truly scenic route – the Munich to Venice long-distance cycling route takes you from the capital of Bavaria through Tyrol, over the Brenner Pass and the Dolomites, all the way to the lagoon city of Venice on the shore of the Adriatic Sea. The route is divided into five stages, which you can extend as you like. Of course you are going to need someone to drive your van as you cycle - perhaps your partner is more bicycle challenged than you are and you can keep in contact via mobile phone and GPS!
