Your adventure on the Drau Cycle Path begins in Toblach, a small town in South Tyrol and thus in Italy. Italy is one of four countries that you will get to know by bike on your way along the Drava. The backdrop of your start could hardly be more spectacular: in the middle of the Dolomites, not far from the world-famous Drei Zinnen, you roll on fabulously developed bike paths through the Puster Valley.The aorta of your entire journey, the Drau, is still very original on the first stage. Torrents soon allow the Drau to grow into a stately body of water and there are alluvial forests, gravel banks and islands on the banks.The first stage is also full of cultural highlights. A detour to the towns along which the Drau Cycle Path leads is always worthwhile. In Toblach, Innichen, Sillian and Lienz, Mediterranean flair meets alpine culture, not least culinary.After almost 50 kilometers you have reached your destination Lienz. The city with the medieval center is the capital of East Tyrol and an excellent place to relax after the first stage.
