On the historic Via Claudia Augusta you will experience Tyrol in the footsteps of the Romans. Surrounded by a magnificent mountain landscape and accompanied by ancient sights, the old Roman road - once the most important link between southern Germany and northern Italy - takes you in three stages and 130 kilometres through the "Land im Gebirg". And your palate will also be historically pampered along the route: more than 30 inn-keepers serve old Roman dishes based on their own interpretation.
The Romans built the first real road between the Adriatic and Augsburg in six decades about 2,000 years ago. This enabled military supplies for the troops of Emperor Claudius and facilitated the movement of goods.
Today, you can enjoy the most attractive sides of Tyrol by bike on this 130 kilometre route.
Within three cycle path stages you will reach the Fernpass from Füssen, further to Landeck and Nauders up to the Reschenpass. Both passes can also be reached by shuttle.
Experience wonderful insights and views of the varied natural landscape along the Via Claudia Augusta, visit culturally interesting sites and museums and fortify yourself in one of the numerous inns with old Roman delicacies newly interpreted.
The culinary bike package offers individual travellers a great combination of fantastic nature experiences and delicious food along the cycle path.
