Long distance cycling
- Brief description
Since time immemorial, the Alps have held an incomparable fascination for people. Though for centuries a terrifying place of perils and legends, the hikers and bikers of today love and yearn for this mighty rock edifice, filled with so much magic and beauty. With the new north-south crossing from Salzburg to Venice, a long-cherished dream finally comes to fruition.

New Stages on Old Routes
The Alpe Adria Bike Tour will be up and ready to go in 2012. A cross-border Interreg project has made possible this new Alpine crossing to the Adriatic Sea. Existing bike routes have been interconnected and new stages created, such as the one near Werfen in SalzburgerLand, in Arnoldstein – Carinthia, and from Cervignano to Grado. Certain to be especially impressive is the new 140 meters-long Klammstein Bike Tunnel in Gastein Valley. And by incorporating the eight kilometers-long Tauern railway tunnel, the new bike route now allows us to cross the Alps minus any overly huge climbs.
In One Week from Salzburg to Grado
The route leads us from Salzburg City of Mozart (elev. 425 m) through the Salzachtal and Gasteinertal valleys to Böckstein. From here we take an 11-minute train ride to Mallnitz (1,191 m), before biking again from Carinthia via Spittal a. d. Drau, Villach and Arnoldstein to the Austrian-Italian border. Now on Italian soil, the route leads us – occasionally along abandoned railway lines – via Tarvisio, Gemona, Udine and Aquileia to Grado on the Adriatic Sea. Our companions along the way are idyllic towns, imposing sights and magnificent natural landscapes!
