Specifically, the five different experience worlds covered on the individual stages. The Bavarian part of the route features idyllic waterways and lakes, the treasures of Tyrol enchant bikers during the second stage and in South Tyrol, a charming combination of alpine and Mediterranean lifestyle awaits. Riders then pass the impressive Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage site, before reaching the final stage across the Venetian Plain, past grand villas, small Italian towns and historic locations. A tempting diversion: taking a dip in the sea in Jesolo before venturing into the hustle and bustle of the lagoon city of Venice. Stage 2: The treasures of Tyrol The route leads from the sparkling green waters of Lake Achensee, through the Inn Valley to the city of Innsbruck. There are plenty of places to visit along the way, for example the famous Swarovski Crystal Worlds in Wattens. This sparkling attraction features a shimmering crystal forest, as well as many other carefully designed and impressively staged crystal creations. If rhinestones are not your scene, you can simply continue the ride past the old silver-mining town of Schwaz and the idyllic town of Hall to Innsbruck. If you have the time, the Capital of the Alps is perfect for a quick stopover. Delicious traditional meals such as the "Tiroler Gröstl" potato dish or "Kaspressknödel" cheese dumplings feature on the many restaurant menus and you can take a trip up to 2,000 metres above sea level on the Nordkettenbahnen lifts and cable cars to enjoy breathtaking alpine views. For culture lovers, the city has scores of museums to visit, guided city tours to enjoy and sights to admire. Click here to view the PDF brochure
