Thematic trail from Roman times
Almost 2,000 years ago, the Romans built the only imperial road across the Alps - the Via Claudia Augusta. It stretched from the Adriatic town of Altinum near Venice over the Reschen and Fernpass to the Danube and for centuries formed the most important link between the Roman motherland and the rich provinces in the north. Today the Via Claudia Augusta is an interesting themed trail with a high cultural value.
Starting from Donauwörth (D), the varied route leads over the Fernpass and the Reschenpass to Ostiglia (I). In Fliess is the documentation center Via Claudia Augusta with all finds of the Tyrolean section. All sections of the Via Claudia Augusta and many other beautiful cycling tours of the holiday region Tyrol West can be found on the interactive map.
ATTENTION: Inform yourself about current barriers at the Fernapass. It is generally advisable to cross the Fern Pass to Fernstein, for example, by bus , as the road is very narrow and dangerous by trucks. It is forbidden to ride the bike over the road on the Austrian side from Kajetansbrücke towards Nauders.
If you want to cycle the route, you have to drive via Martina (Switzerland) - to the route.
