Our journey starts from down town Munich. Munich International Airport is a convenient airport with many services from all over the world. We recommend that you arrive in Munich a day or two before. Take time to settle into your hotel and sort through your riding gear and or hired gear and spend some time exploring the old city at your leisure.
We will be staying in smaller, more traditional, guest houses and pensions. Often dinner is provided at the guest houses and the food is usually home cooked and the menu changes with the seasons. After riding and/or in the evening we will head to the local tavern where Lukas will give you an introduction to the regional wines and beers.
We anticipate that many of you will incorporate this bike trip into other travelling plans you may have while you are in Europe, but for the indecisive or for those who want to have a short 5 day tour of the region with a local, join Lukas as he introduces you to his favourite spots in Austria.
