From San Candido to Lienz: enjoy the landscape by bike

The most popular cycle path in South Tyrol, the cross-border Drau Cycle Path from San Candido to Lienz follows a well-marked trail and is suitable for all kinds of bikes. With a length of 44 km and an elevation loss of 500 m over the descent, the route is easily manageable by all lovers of the outdoors. When you reach Lienz, the capital of East Tyrol, you’ll find it’s a lovely place to take a stroll. And the easy way to get back is to let the train take the strain!
Because it’s easy to get to by train, starting the tour in Versciaco is recommended and there’s also a large free car park there. The PUNKA Service Center is located right next to the railway station and by the cycle path. It’s a bike hire and shop with the latest bike models, as well as services with bar.
