From Garmisch we start our tour to the Eibsee at the foot of the Zugspitze to Tyrol. A panoramic mountain highway leads from Ehrwald to the deep blue lakes at the Fernpass. Offside the Fernpass federal road we follow the footsteps of the Romans and enjoy the descent to the little village Nassereith and further along to Imst. Through the Inn Valley we follow the old Roman Road Via Claudia to Nauders. We cycle along the Reschenpass to Italy. Past the Grauner Tower which significantly rises up out of the Reschensee, we cycle further south and finally get to the apple orchards of the Vinschgau to Merano.
