Getting there

Individual arrival in Sillian and moving into accommodation. The day is at leisure. If you arrive earlier, we recommend a detour to the source of the Drau in Toblach in South Tyrol / Italy (about 33 km there and back).

Sillian in East Tyrol

Sillian - Berg im Drautal (A) / Oberdrauburg (B), approx. 64/51 km

Accompanied by the panorama of the Dolomites, you cycle to the largest city in East Tyrol, to Lienz. Take some time to rest in the charming city and enjoy the hustle and bustle. You drive on strengthened and shortly after Nikolsdorf pass the border to Carinthia.

Berg im Drautal (A) / Oberdrauburg (B) - Spittal an der Drau (A / B), approx. 45/55 km

Following the Upper Drautal you always cycle along the Drau to Spittal / Drau. Partly along the river bank, partly a little further away through smaller villages, the cycle path takes you through the Drautal to the next district capital. In Spittal / Drau you should take time to tour the city. The renaissance castle Porcia is especially worth a visit

Spittal an der Drau (A / B) - Rosegg / Latschach (A / B), approx. 57 km

Today you cycle down the river to Villach, the city with southern flair. Take a break in Villach and experience the lively city up close with a cozy coffee on the main square. Now it goes past the small bathing lake Silbersee further along the Drau to Rosegg.
