From Werfenweng to Bad Gastein
The journey continues through the tranquil Gastein Valley. Until the 20th century, it was only accessible via mountain paths and narrow roads. Framed by the peaks of the Hohe Tauern, you cycle along the Gasteiner Ache. The Montecarlo of the Alps, as Bad Gastein is often called, is known for its many magnificent hotels from the Bel Époque period, which dominate the townscape. The main attraction is the Gastein Waterfall, which is fed by a total of 17 springs and provides an extra dose of health.

From Bad Gastein to Lake Millstätter
Instead of following the original Alpe Adria cycle path, we suggest an alternative through the tranquil Dösental valley. On the old railway line, an 8 km long descent leads down to the Glockner Cycle Path and along the Möll River. The varied landscape will not allow you to get bored. The stage destination of todays journey is Millstatt, situated on the lake of the same name. At around 141 m, Lake Millstatt is the deepest lake in Carinthia.

From lake Millstätter to Tarvisio
Along the lake with its crystal-clear water, which is even of drinking water quality, you cycle around the lake for a while and then overcome a small ridge that brings you into the Drau valley. After this detour, the Alpe-Adria route leads along the leisurely flowing Drava, where surprises await you time and again. Soon the direction of travel changes and you head off to the south. First along the Gail, which is ideal for cooling off on hot summer days, you cross the border to Bella Italia. In the border triangle between Austria, Slovenia and Italy lies the small town of Tarvisio..
