A 200-meter step in altitude brings us to the Gastein Valley. We follow the bike path to the chic spa town of Bad Gastein. The waterfall and the venerable hotels have real cult status. With the help of the Tauern lock, we reach our destination for the day, Mallnitz.

A brisk descent brings us down into the valley of the Möll. Here we turn onto the Drau cycle path and follow it until shortly before Spittal. However, we don't miss out on a detour to Lake Millstatt. There is even an amusing boat ride before we reach our destination for the day in Spittal. Overnight stay in the city hotel.
Fourth day – From Spittal to Villach – 62 km, 780 m elevation gain
We leave the comfort zone of the Drau cycle path and head for a small Carinthian village. Lake Egelsee should not be missing from any of Austria's advertising brochures. Further on, four Carinthian lakes line up like a string of pearls along our stage. Our destination is a venerable and comfortable city hotel in the historic center of Villach.

Ciclopista Alpe Adria is the name of today's royal stage. Before we reach the spectacular bike path, we have to climb a bit to the border to Italy. Over old bridges and long tunnels we reach Bella Italia. Overnight stay close to Venzone.
Sixth day – From Venzone to Fagana – 62 km, 600 m elevation gain
In Venzone the narrow valley opens up. The old town on the mighty Tagliamento River is worth the trip. Via small paths we reach our destination for the day, San Daniele. It is not only the ham that has made this ancient town famous all over the world. Overnight stay in a wellness resort in the middle of the cultural landscape.
Seventh day – From Fagagna nach Lignano – 84 km, 100 m elevation gain
Italy all over. With the last mountains of the Alps behind us, we start off into a lush landscape. We cycle past magnificent palazzos and lavish farms. The rich Venice shaped this country. But even the Romans appreciated the local specialties. We also enjoy the Italian cuisine and hospitality. After a long day of cycling we reach our destination on the Adriatic Sea. The wide sandy beach of Lignano is simply magnificent.

„Acrossing the Alps and arriving the wide sandy beach of Lignano. The Transalp Trekking Alpe Adria has something special. The start in the Gastein Valley in the middle of the mighty Tauern, the lovely Carinthian lake landscape with the gem Lake Millstatt and then, of course, the sensational Ciclovia Alpe Adria.
