For many, the legendary term of “Transalp” stands for the ultimate outdoor experience. One could think that this is only something for well-trained endurance bikers. Sure, there are the most demanding routes with 2000 meters of altitude difference per day and energy-sapping stretchers.

But Slow Alps also offers gentler routes, for example on ancient Roman paths such as the Via Claudia Augusta, which can even be mastered by touring bike. Not to mention the use of the e-bike.

So you may rave about “Munich – Venice”, or more beautifully: from Marienplatz to St. Mark’s Square. This awakens a longing for faraway places and combines Bavarian beer bliss with passed Venetian charm.

But it doesn’t have to be over 500 km. How about from Garmisch to Lake Garda or in just 3 day stages from Lake Tegernsee in Bavaria to Val Pusteria in South Tyrol?

In any case, a Transalp always turns into a culinary journey from beer, bacon, cheese and Kaiserschmarrn on the north side of the Alps to delicious antipasti, red wine, pasta, and Tiramisu in the sunny south – that much is certain!
