On todays cycling stage you will literally immerse yourself in the Karwendel Alpine Park. Hardly any other region has been able to preserve its wildness and diversity in such an unadulterated way. The Isar with its natural river gravel banks accompanies you for a short distance.

A visit to the Fugger town of Sterzing with its proud patrician houses and the historic Zwölferturm is well worth it before you continue your cycling day through the slender Upper Eisack Valley. The mighty Sarntal and Zillertal Alps border the valley and you cycle mostly along the young, impetuous Eisack River, up hill and down dale, through pictur... weiterlesenesque villages, passing remote hamlets until the Brixen valley floor opens up and you roll directly into Brixen, the oldest city in South Tyrol.
