Cycling along the Inn River

Last updated on April 22nd, 2022 at 07:07 am

The Innradweg (Inn River Cycle Trail) follows the banks of the river from its source in the Swiss Engadine region to where it flows into the Danube near Passau. It is one of the longest cycling trails in Europe with a length of 520 kilometres.

Nearly half of the route runs through Tyrol – from town to town and from one attraction to the next. Cyclists master 211 kilometres, 1170 metres of downhill and 600 metres of uphill during the five stages.

The maximum journey time of just under four hours per stage leaves enough time for sightseeing. The historic old town of Innsbruck with the “Goldenes Dachl” (Golden Roof) is ideal for a tour.

In Hall and Rattenberg, visitors can stroll through the medieval town centres. The traditional glass-blowing workshop in the centre of Rattenberg offers insights into a special craft.

In between are sights such as the Swarovski Crystal Worlds in Wattens and the Tyrolean Farmhouse Museum in Kramsach. At the end of the Tyrolean section of the route, cyclists have a great view across the countryside and the River Inn from Kufstein fortress.
