Cycle route munich - verona or vice versa

Hello from australia, my wife and I will be visiting Munich on a cycling tour next year and have read about a route that travels from munich (germany) to verona (italy) that we would like to travel. - I know there is one guidebook published but it is only available in german language. Does anyone have any information on this trail and do you know where and if we can get maps when we arrive in germany? It appears that the bavarica tyrolensis route - (munich to lake achensee in austria which I found on the german tourism website) is the begining of this trail but I am not sure. I would appreciate any information that anyone has on this route. Thanks

Hi from Italy, I used the Esterbauer guides for the EuroTour 2008 travel of my signature, and I will use them for EuroTour 2009 too. These guides are in German, I understand zero words, but their maps are simply perfect.

So I suggest this:

http://www.esterbauer.com

then Bikeline -> Deutschland -> map

then you need these 3 guides, to go from Munich to Verona:

1) Isar-Radweg
2) Bodensee-Konigsee-Radweg
3) Via Claudia Augusta

Surely good bookstores in Germany have them, but sometimes you have to search in several shops because some of them are out of stock. It would be better an online purchase before the departure.

i'm living in munich for a limited time, and i really want to make this trip (but maybe end in venice) unfortunately, i'll have to do it in the end of february. I have enough clothes to be warm, but will it be safe or icey? snow and rain don't matter too much.
I don't want to stay in the valleys the whole time. Of course, i can't make every mountain pass, but i want to make as many as my legs can handle. Will those maps give enough information to plan my climbing? Or will everything just appear flat?

I'm sorry ridefastfun, I'm replying a bit late...
Anyway, those guides contain a good profile of altitudes, useful to plan the cycling day by day.

We found 4C, icy rain and a wind storm; and just few meters above our road, the mountain was white cause of fresh snow. Resia Pass, July 2009
