Lionheart Stage 1 - Venice - Neuschwanstein Castle

15 Days 1199 Km

Richard the Lionheart is remembered as an iconic hero of the English speaking world. It is little known, however, that he didn’t speak English, hated living in England and at one stage said “I would sell London if I could find a buyer!” Our Lionheart tour promises to provide us with some of the best riding and history yet.

Start in Venice, Europe's most famous city of canals.
Skirt the Marmolada, the Dolomites highest peak, whilst crossing through some of its most spectacular passes.
Ride the lesser known but equally epic Austrian Alps including the Grossglockner, one of Europe's best climbs!
Take in a palace or cathedral on your rest day in the gorgeous city of Vienna.
Ride out of Vienna along the magnificent Danube River to the ruins of Durnstein Castle, where Lionheart was held prisoner.
Soak in the thermal springs of Bad Ischl (Baths) before taking on the big climb up to medieval Hohenwarfen castle.
Enter into Germany through the beautiful rolling landscape of Bavaria, following Lionheart's shackled route homewards.
Explore Europe's number 1 best castle - Neuschwanstein.
