From the Tyrolean mountains through Bavaria to Upper Austria

As the name suggests, the Inn Cycle Path follows the river of the same name through the Tyrolean mountains, on to Bavaria and Upper Austria and ends in the three-river city of Passau. Most of the time you cycle comfortably along flat cycle paths. Numerous highlights await you along the way: Landscape, nature, culture and cities are lined up one after the other and offer plenty of variety. In addition to the Alpine town of Innsbruck, the fortified towns of Kufstein and Burghausen, the picturesque Baroque towns of Obernberg and Schärding are also on your route. Another impressive natural spectacle awaits you in Passau: the confluence of the Inn, Danube and Ilz rivers.


Innsbruck, Kaiserliche Hofburg
At the end of the 15th century, when Emperor Maximilian I filled the castle with magnificent court life, the building already had the extension of the Imperial Palace to Innsbruck.

Innsbruck, Nordkessenbahn

With the Innsbrucker Nordkettenbahnen you can travel in a few minutes from the city center to the spectacular landscape of the Nordkette with a breathtaking view of Innsbruck, the unofficial capital of the Alps on the one hand and the Karwendel Nature Park on the other.


Drei Flüsse aus drei Himmelsrichtungen – aus dem Westen die Donau, dem Süden der Inn und dem Norden die Ilz – machen die Landschaft am Dreiflüsseeck zu einer einzigartigen Schönheit. Dazu die barocke Altstadt, die von italienischen Meistern im 17. Jahrhundert geschaffen wurde und in deren Zentrum sich majestätisch der Dom St. Stephan mit der größten Domorgel der Welt erhebt. Hier paaren sich Charme und Schönheit, Geschichte und Kultur, Kunst und Erlebnis. 


St. Stephen's Cathedral Passau
St. Stephen's Cathedral is a baroque church built in 1688. Since 730, there have been many churches built on the site of the current cathedral. The current church, a baroque building around 100 metres long, was built from 1668 to 1693 after a fire in 1662 destroyed its predecessor, of which only the late gothic eastern side remains. The cathedral's overall plan was made by Carlo Lurago, its interior decoration by Giovanni Battista Carlone, and its frescos by Carpoforo Tencalla.

Individual arrival in Innsbruck, start the day early to experience as much as possible of your first day in Innsbruck. Take a walk through Innsbruck's beautiful old town with its famous Golden Roof and discover everything Innsbruck has to offer.

You leave the Tyrolean capital behind you and cycle through picturesque towns and villages to Strass at the entrance to the Zillertal. Enjoy the breathtaking mountain panorama and take time to visit the old town of Hall and the Swarovski Crystal Worlds in Wattens. Take the train from Brixlegg to Kufstein, where you will spend the night today.

Leaving the mighty castle complex of Kufstein behind you, you now cycle into the Bavarian Alpine foothills. Mostly on the embankment and partly in alluvial forests, you cycle leisurely to Wasserburg. The special location in the river bend creates a unique townscape. With its historic old town, beautiful facades and narrow alleyways, Wasserburg is certainly one of the most beautiful towns on the Inn.

The route to Mühldorf leads through pleasant farmland, slightly away from the Inn, through small villages and beautiful hills. Enjoy the landscape and the wonderful views that await you. Your destination for today is Mühldorf am Innn. The long town square with its beautiful town houses is typical of Mühldorf.

Two special pilgrimage sites await you on this stage: Altötting, Bavaria's most important place of pilgrimage, and Marktl am Inn. The former Pope Benedict XVI comes from Marktl. Your journey continues along the Inn to Burghausen. Burghausen is home to the longest castle complex in Europe. After an extensive tour, you cycle on to Kirchdorf am Inn.

This section leads through the Lower Inn European nature reserve. The floodplain landscape with its extraordinary variety of plants is a breeding ground for numerous water birds. Pure nature as far as the eye can see. A little away from the river, you finally reach Bad Füssing. Enjoy the huge range of health and wellness facilities and bring your day of cycling to a relaxing close.

The journey to Passau is lined with picturesque Baroque towns: Obernberg with its beautiful market square, the magnificent Reichersberg Abbey and the Baroque town of Schärding with its Silberzeile. At the confluence of the Inn and Danube rivers, you have reached the destination of your journey: Passau. Passau is one of the most beautiful cities in Germany and numerous sights are waiting to be discovered and visited by you.

Unfortunately, your wonderful cycle tour along the River Inn ends here and it is time for your journey home. Take the train back to Innsbruck (train travel for passengers is included, own bikes are not included in the price). Would you like to extend your vacation? Then we will be happy to book additional nights for you.
