The EuroVelo Management Team is proud to present the 2023 edition of the EuroVelo Overview Map and two route extensions. The map is the main printed tool to promote and get to know the network, which is constantly expanding with two extensions of EuroVelo 3 – Pilgrims Route and EuroVelo 14 – Waters of Central Europe. The map and route extensions have been showcased at ITB Berlin, one of the largest travel trade shows in the world.

The 2023 EuroVelo Overview Map includes the new extensions of two routes: EuroVelo 3 – Pilgrims Route and EuroVelo 14 – Waters of Central Europe.
EuroVelo 3 extension from Santiago de Compostela to Cape Fisterra in Spain
The EuroVelo 3 extension is a 90km cycle route following the ancient pilgrimage path to the end of the world, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Following successful development led by Galicia Tourism since 2019, the route is now ready to join the EuroVelo network and will certainly make a valuable addition to the route.
EuroVelo 3 – Pilgrims Route is 5,600 km long and stretches from Trondheim (Norway) to Cape Fisterra (Spain), crossing 7 countries. The route connects the Norwegian fjords to the Spanish Atlantic Coast passing through some of the continent’s most impressive religious buildings, including the magnificent cathedrals of Cologne, Aachen and Santiago de Compostela.
EuroVelo 14 extension in Hungary through Budapest
The extension of EuroVelo 14 follows the launch of the route in 2020, crossing Austria and Balaton Lake in Hungary. It adds 400km to the Waters of Central Europe route along important Hungarian rivers, lakes, thermal baths and going through Budapest. The route is now signed and of good quality thanks to the joint efforts of two Hungarian coordinating national partners (Centre for Development of Active and Ecotourism state agency and the Hungarian Cycling Tourism Association NGO).
EuroVelo 14 – Waters of Central Europe is 1,100 km long from Zell am See (Austria) to Debrecen (Hungary) through two countries and connects several important waterways – rivers, lakes and spas. With this extension, the Hungarian capital will now be the crossing point for two major cycling corridors: the new section of EuroVelo 14 and the popular EuroVelo 6 – Atlantic-Black Sea, which follows the Danube River.
