Inn Cycle Route - Tiroler Unterland

This cycle route runs almost flatly through the lower Inntal valley. Spruce villages and townlets are located along the route and behind the Tyrolean alpine world rises up to the sky. No matter if from west to east (as described here) or from east to west – to enjoy a comfortable bicycle touring this cycle route along the green Inn river is ideal.

Starting at the Ottoburg in the centre of Innsbruck, the R2 Cycle Route runs towards east through the parks on the bank for the Inn. Past the Olympic Village we cycle through the field scenery towards Hall in Tirol. Here the cycle path changes to the southern bank of the Inn until Wattens past the Swarovski Kristallwelten where we cycle on the northern bank of the river again. We continue our tour until Schwaz and Jenbach, where a cycle path branches off towards Lake Achensee. However the Inn Cycle Route proceeds further towards east, after the village of Strass, the Zillertal Cycle Route branches off there.

The next villages along the Inn river are Brixlegg and shortly afterwards Rattenberg – this small medieval townlet is really worth visiting! Past Kundl, Wörgl (junction to the Brixental Cycle Route) and Kirchbichl we cycle through a landscape of meadows and fields until Kufstein. The town with its impressive fortifications is the last major town along the Inn Cycle Route. Just about 15 km further downstream, at Erl, the territory of Tyrol ends and the Inn Cycle Route continues on Bavarian territory. After another 175 kilometres, near Passau, the cycle route finally joins the Danube Cycle Path.
