Garmisch - Lake Garda

The tour leads from Grainau near Garmisch over the Reschenpass to Lake Garda and is with only about 5900 meters of altitude and about 360 kilometers in five stages a very good beginner transalp. The difference to the Garmisch-Gardasee Genießer Tour lies in the daily riding time and the additional altitude meters.
You are an experienced mountain biker and regularly tour off paved roads in your free time. The stage lengths of up to 90 kilometers and climbs of up to 1,300 meters in altitude require good preparation in order to enjoy the five full Transalp days. The route runs mainly on paved and unpaved bike paths as well as side roads. Also easy single trails (S0 - S1) with roots and small steps, steep gravel roads in ascents and descents as well as short pushing passages are part of this Transalp.
For landscape fans: Zugspitze massif and Reschenpass, the apple orchards of Vinschgau, the Brenta Dolomites and "last but not least" Lago di Garda. For cult(o)urists: the romantic Fernstein Castle, the medieval Glurns and the Mediterranean Merano. For gourmets: A culinary journey from bacon, cheese and Schlutzkrapfen to delicious antipasti, pasta, tiramisu and cappuccino.
From Grainau near Garmisch-Partenkirchen, the trail leads to Lake Eibsee and at the foot of the Zugspitze to Tyrol. A panoramic high trail leads from Ehrwald to the picturesque lakes at the Fernpass. Away from the busy Fernpass road, we follow in the footsteps of the Romans and enjoy the descent to Nassereith and on to Imst. Through the Inn Valley, we follow the Via Claudia Roman trail to Nauders. We bike over the Reschen Pass and past the striking Grauner Turm, which juts out of the Reschen Lake. The apple orchards of the Vinschgau Valley characterize the landscape all the way to the alpine-Mediterranean city of Merano. From there over the Gampen Pass - at 1,518 meters the highest pass of the tour - into Val di Non in the shadow of the Brenta Dolomites. The last day takes us on spectacular high-altitude trails to Lake Garda.

Details & stages
5 p.m. Meeting in Grainau near Garmisch for getting to know each other, bike check, adjustment of rental bikes and dinner. Discussion of the overall tour based on maps.
From Grainau we start along the Eibsee in the direction of Hochthörle Hütte. Here we can look forward to our first descent: over single trails and speed asphalt down to the Austrian town of Ehrwald. After the lunch break, we crank in a beautiful up and down over the panoramic path above Biberwier to the Weißensee and over the Fernpass to the Fernsteinsee Castle. Afterwards we cycle along the old Roman path Via Claudia Augusta to Imst.
Today we start leisurely. On the Inntal cycle path via Mils, Schönwies and Zams we have enough time to bring our legs to operating temperature. We should have reached this at the latest in Landeck, because here we go up to the Fließer Platte, where, after a short pushing passage, the wagon tracks of the Romans can still be seen. From up here we can enjoy fantastic views of the Inn Valley. A beautiful trail winds from Fließ down into the valley and spits us out again only at the very bottom of the Inn. Via Prutz, Ried, Tösens and Pfunds we reach Nauders after a small detour into Switzerland and over the Norbertshöhe.
Another small climb, then the Reschenpass is behind us. Welcome to Italy! In Glurns we treat ourselves to the first "real" Italian cappuccino. The main ridge of the Alps is now behind us. We feel this especially in the pleasant warmth that welcomes us in Vinschgau. We continue cycling along the Adige River towards Merano - it's almost all downhill! So that it doesn't get boring between the thousands of apple trees, we know many an insider tip here to ride casual trails with little effort or to taste South Tyrolean delicacies. Merano finally awaits us with a great hotel, the arcades and delicious Italian ice cream!
Today the Gampen Pass lies ahead of us! Up to Lana we cycle ourselves warm. From here, a small road off the pass road leads up towards Völlan. The beginning is steep and sweaty, but soon the slope eases. At the Völlaner Badl we have delicious apple strudel and cappuccino. On wonderfully shady forest paths we continue to the top of the pass. Here we stop for lunch! The Val di Non is known for its rolling hills, deep canyons, sleepy villages and extensive orchards. Following a great panoramic high trail, we reach Lago di Santa Giustina. Only a last short climb separates us from our stage destination, Cles.
One of the most beautiful stages! Spectacular, the route of the "Dolomiti di Brenta Bike" leads us at the foot of the original Brenta Mountains to the picturesque Lake Molveno. A 2.4 kilometer tunnel, which can only be used by hikers and bikers, leads us to a great high-altitude trail. Similar to the South Tyrolean Waalwege, this leads along above the valley without any notable differences in altitude. We enjoy the easy single trails and great panoramic views. On a varied path it finally goes uphill to Andalo. Another short descent, then we are at Lake Molveno, where we take an extended rest on the lakeshore. After the lunch break we ride on beautiful paths and trails into the valley of the Sarche. After a brisk descent, we set course for the historic town of Arco. From here it is only a few kilometers that separate us from Lake Garda. A jump into the lake and then we pop the champagne corks!
After breakfast transfer back to Grainau.
