Crossing the Alps by bike is a dream for many cyclists. And thanks to the perfectly prepared Alpe Adria bike path, you don't even have to be a top athlete to master this tour. In just one week, it takes you from Mozart's hometown Salzburg in Austria to the Italian Mediterranean Coast. Make your way from the Gastein Valley to Böckstein, where a train takes you to Mallnitz on the other side of the Gamskarlspitze mountain range in just 11 minutes. Out in the open again, the bike path is winding through the Austrian county Carinthia. Once in Italy, you will pass Tarvis, Gemona, Undine and Aquileia on your way to Gardo on the Adriatic shore. Idyllic spots, beautiful tourist sights and impressive landscapes will accompany you on your trip to the South. One thing is for certain: every cyclist deserves a delicious gelato at the end of their trip, as well as a refreshing jump into the Adriatic Sea.
