The Inn Cycle Path Heading to Innsbruck
Without stopping, the journey from Radfeld to Innsbruck takes an average of 4 hours. However, you do not need to ride that far as there are a number of landmarks along the way that are well worth a visit. The first section of the Inn cycle path leads you directly along the banks of the River Inn to Silberstadt Schwaz.
The town flourished trough mining and is still excellently-preserved. A journey by train into the tunnels of the old mine cools you down in summer and is a real thrill.
A little way past Schwaz, the cycle path winds through meadows and fields until it reaches Wattens and brings you directly to the "giant". Here, you find a giant created by André Heller for Swarovski with an enchanting sparkling crystal world inside. Afterwards, you pass several villages and cross the surrounding vegetable fields of the rural growing areas. You can also enjoy these products at the surrounding farmers' markets and in restaurants.
You thus arrive at Hall, once a rich town thanks to salt mining and the minting business. Hall is a particularly charming town for it is built on a hill side. The small alleys and passages interweave in such a bizarre way that you feel like you are strolling through an ancient fairy tale.
The Inn cycle path leads you directly along the River Inn away from the traffic into the city centre of the regional capital and university city of Innsbruck.
