Itinerary

Your first walk along Lake Starnberg or even a refreshing swim already awaits today.

Hotel (example) Hotel Seeblick

Initially the cycle path leads you to the southern shores of Lake Starnberg until Seeshaupt. You cycle along marvellous paths through original Bavarian villages, past the Osterseen lakes and Lake Riegsee until you reach Murnau on Lake Staffelsee.

Hotel (example) Hotel Griesbräu Murnau

You start the tour by cycling through the nature reserve ‚Murnauer Moos’ (biggest moor area in Central  Europe). Onwards through unspoilt nature following the river Loisach to Garmisch Partenkirchen. This stage is deliberately kept short, which means you have time for a ride up by the ‚Zugspitzbahn’-railway to a height of 2962 metres (autonomously). From there you have a fantastic view over the Alps.

Hotel (example) Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten

You take a train ride to Scharnitz and cover 300 metres in altitude. From there you continue slightly uphill through wild-romantic gorges and lush alpine pastures to the Isar river source. Back through the sunny high-altitude valley with marvellous panoramic views onto the Karwendel and the Wetterstein mountain ranges via Mittenwald to Wallgau – a village where Bavarian traditions are still alive today.

Hotel (example) Hotel Gasthof Post Wallgau

Past the ‚Isarwinkel’, following the crystal clear, turquoise-blue water to the impressive lake Sylvensteinsee and via Lenggries through atmospheric scenery to Bad Tölz. This village is situated at the intersection point of two trading routes – the river Isar and the old salt route from Reichenhall into the Allgäu region – it quickly developed into a booming handling spot. The ornate houses are still testimony to this area.

Hotel (example) Hotel Kolberbräu / Kolbergarten

Through the charming scenery around Lake Tegernsee until Gmund on Lake Tegernsee with a fabulous lake panorama. Then you return along the Gaißbach valley to Bad Tölz. The thermal springs of the spa ‚Alpamare’ will rejuvenate any sore muscles. Follow the traces of the well-known TV-series ‚Der Bulle von Tölz’ along the high road of Bad Tölz.

For the finale, another casual stage via soft rolling hills and through lush meadows back to the starting point of this round trip. If you have not done it already, we recommend a swim in the crystal clear waters of Lake Starnberg as a final highlight of this tour.

Tour character

Overall easy tour. There are just a few short ascents which can also be mastered by pushing the bike up. You cycle on marvellous cycle paths and on little side road, on main roads only for short sections. The route is mainly asphalted, several longer segments also on well-maintained dirt roads.
