This outstanding cycle tour leads you along the Inn River from Tyrol in Austria to Bavaria in Germany. The name of the Tyrolean capital Innsbruck originates from the River Inn, which gushes from there still like a mountain stream. You can enjoy the best view onto the lovely city on a trip up to the top of the Nordkette range with the Hungerburg funicular railway. Well worth seeing is the golden roof “Goldene Dachl”, in the center of Innsbruck before you start your tour along the River Inn.
