The Via Claudia Augusta began once upon a time in the port of Altinum near Venice and led across the Reschenpass, Landeck , Imst and the Fernpass and further along the Danube to Donauwörth .
She was even after the Romans, one of the most important north-south connections. The resulting income opportunities, trade and encounters with travelers from many countries shaped the people along this route. Different regions and cultures meet each other here today and take a bike ride on this Roman trail.
Numerous attractions are lined up togeteher, like glittering pearls on a chain: Starting with the scenic Danube Wörth at the starting point of the tour, with its Romanesque Augsburg and the romantic Neuschwanstein Castle. In the mountains, at the entrance to Tirol, in Reutte, the European Ehrenberg Castle and the picturesque Fern Pass await us. In the wild, romantic valleys follow the House of Fasnacht in Imst, the Tyrolean waterworld in Zams and the Archaeological Museum Fliess, ... before the route goes up onto the Finstermünz and to the Reschenpass. Over this centuries old pass road, the path continues on to South Tyrol, past the idyllic Reschensee and onto the south side of the Alps down to Merano and Bolzano. From the historic city of Trento you finally go either to the former Roman port in Altino near Venice (varied, but with a few hills, for which there will be hopefully soon a shuttle) or Ostiglia on the Po .. A bike ride on a route which the Romans once visited.

Route: on asphalt or gravel bike paths and quiet side streets. From the Danube to Schongau quite flat, through Allgäu gently undulating. In Tyrol - with slight inclines and descents - through Zwischentoren, the Gurgl- and the Inntal. From the Reschenpass to Trento largely downhill. After Antino by Venice there's still a small hill and 3 passes, but much more varied and interesting . After Verona or Ostiglia, apart from a hill, even.
VIA CLAUDIA HUCKEPACK : Via the Fernpass ( 1,215 m) and Reschenpass ( 1,450 m ) from around 1,000 meters optional shuttle transport ( the lightest alpine crossing for cyclists ) . From Reschenpass steady decent.
- Additional information
Getting there: As it is relatively complicated and time consuming to get the train to the starting point of the tour, there is for cyclists in the summer months a return-bus from Altino / Venice or Ostiglia / Verona , which currenlty runs primarily on the weekends, but will in future drive daily and can be used in the opposite direction as luggage service ( Current info and registration on www.viaclaudia.org )
