Explore the striking countryside of the Tyrolean Alps by bike with Drau Cycle Route. Visitors can cross from Italy to Austria on this international cycling path. The paved 44 km (27 mi) trail passes villages, meadows, and mountains. Because San Candido is 500 m (1,640 ft) higher than the endpoint in Austria, even novices can complete the ride in two to three hours. Admire the Austrian town of Lienz's traditional Tyrolean architecture, then make the return trip by bike or catch a bike-friendly train back to San Candido.
