Via Claudia Augusta

The only imperial state road over the Alps – the Via Claudia Augusta – was built almost 2000 years ago by the Romans.

After two thousand years of history, the Via Claudia Augusta, the ancient Roman road, which led from the Po River lowlands and the Adriatic Sea all the way to the Danube, is enjoying a renaissance. With the end of the conflicts and a finally united Europe, the Via Claudia Augusta has become a bridge to unify and mixed cultures, living spaces and emotions. It is a symbolic route that spans three nations, each with its own varied landscape and traditions, artistic treasures and culinary delights, marked by more approachable, youthful and ecologically sustainable tourism. This tour is ideal to leave your watch at home and to admire places and landscapes from a new perspective.

Cycling on historic routes

Today, the Via Claudia Augusta has become an interesting theme path with lots of cultural value and over 500 km of cycling tracks. Starting in Donauwörth/Bavaria (D), this varied route leads via Augsburg and Landsberg, the Fernpass and the Resia mountain passes to Verona, Venice and Ostiglia (I). For centuries this has been the most important connection between the Roman motherland and the rich provinces in the north.
