Munich - Lake Constance

From Hofbräuhaus in Munich to the „Bavarian Harbour“.

The cycle tour form Munich to Lake Constance will see you travel alongside flower-filled meadows, peaceful forests and harvest-ready fields. Smaller lakes such as the Ammersee or Lake Starnberg invite you to stop and take a break. Dip your tired feed into crystal-clear lakes and enjoy the imposing mountains. Culture lovers take note: it won’t only be the Bavarian landscape that sticks in your mind, but also the cultural highlights of the region, which will make your heart beat faster.

Details about the cycle tour from Munich to Lake Constance

The seven-day cycle tour in southern Germany offers a perfect duet of nature and culture. Alps, lakes, blooming fields and rustic forests make cycling easy as you travel from Munich via Füssen, Schwangau, Nesselwang, Oberstaufen to and finally to Lindau. In the largest moorland in central Europe, the Murnauer Moors, a patch of earth with untouched nature and lush meadows and forests opens out before you. At the same time you can experience the epitome of ‘Romantic Eclecticism’ on the bike tour such as the Wieskirche in Steingaden or the royal palaces in Neuschwanstein.

Highlights at a glance:

  • From lake to lake, through quaint Bavarian villages: Living tradition, warm hospitality and delicious, hearty food await you in the Bavarian villages. You will cycle past the Osterseen, the Riegsee to the Staffelsee in Murnau.
  • Lindau, the pearl of Lake Constance: The town on Lake Constance contains so many treasures. A visit to the island, the old town hall and the impressive mansions with their murals should not be missed!

Useful information about the cycle tour from Munich to Lake Constance

‘O’zapft is’ is not just the name of the Munich Oktoberfest! Throughout the year the custom of drinking beer in a shaded public garden is a priority. See it for yourself on the cycle tour from Munich to Lake Constance. The tour character speaks more to the experienced holiday cyclist. Hilly sections with short ascents and descents on wonderfully developed cycle paths await you in the south of Germany. On the seven-day cycle tour you cycle an average of between 25 and 65 kilometres per day, and sometimes work up a good sweat. But the ‘kühle Blonde’ in the beer garden will taste so much better!

Itinerary

Welcome briefing and bike fitting. The capital city of Bavaria is awaiting you and invites you to visit its many attractions (English Garden, Town Hall, Hofbräuhaus,…)

Today’s tour starts with a ride through the Forstenrieder park until you get to Lake Starnberg. Then the bike path runs directly along the lakeside edge until you get to Seeshaupt. You will cycle along beautiful paths running through quaint, Bavarian villages and past the Osterseen lakes, lake Riegsee and then finally to Murnau am Staffelsee.

The third day on the bike will at first take you through the nature reserve Murnauer Moos (the largest marshland in Central Europe) and the “Altenauer Moor”. After the impressions of this pristine nature, you will get to know the essence of Bavarian Rococo – the Wieskirche church. However, the highlights of the day are the royal castles of Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau.

From the former site of Bavarian majesty, you will cycle further along Lake Forggensee to Hopfen am See. This area impresses with its seven major and numerous other smaller lakes. You will continue your tour through fields and meadows and get a stunning view of the Allgäu Alps, Mount Zugspitze and the Tannheimer mountains until you reach Nesselwang.

At the beginning of today’s stage, the route is a little bit hilly. However, the beautiful Alpine panorama makes up for the little effort you have to make. You will pass Lake Rottachsee and relax when cycling downhill to Immenstadt (nice town with good restaurants) and continue along Lake Großer Alpensee until you reach today’s destination, the spa town of Oberstaufen.

On your last day of cycling, you will cycle through typical Allgäu landscape with scattered farms and villages to the beautiful Lake Constance (or in German, Bodensee). After arriving at the lakeside of the pretty town of Lindau, we recommend a visit to the island, the Old Town Hall and the proud patrician houses with their impressive frescoes. Overnight stay in Lindau or in Nonnenhorn, approx. 8 km from Lindau.

Tour character

You will enjoy some slight climbs and descents cycling through the gently rolling alpine foothills, where you can admire a beautiful panoramic view of the Alps and the idyllic lakes on the way. You will cycle on beautiful bike ways and minor roads. Main roads will only be used for short distances. Most roads are paved; some longer passages are on natural roads which are in good condition.
