For those who do not want to or are unable to take as much time to cycle the whole Munich Lakes Tour, we have created this tour. Starting from the Bavarian capital, you will cycle to Lake Starnberg, the Osterseen lakes, Lake Riegsee, and Lake Staffelsee. Connected by scenic routes you will get from one baroque town to another. Treat yourself to a long weekend and enjoy it in a really Bavarian way!

To the online version


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,…)


From Munich, the tour starts with a bike ride through Forstenrieder Park to Lake Starnberg. From Starnberg, you will continue your tour on the bike path next to the lake to Ambach or even further to Bernried. Enjoy some time at the lake with its crystal clear waters and wonderful views of the surrounding mountains.


Today, you will cycle on scenic trails through unspoilt Bavarian villages, past the Osterseen lakes and Lake Riegsee to Murnau am Staffelsee. On the way, there are many lakes which invite you to swim. In Murnau not only the Münterhaus is worth a visit. The connection between art and music in this town has always characterized the people and architecture.


On the fourth day you will pass Lake Kochlsee and Benediktbeuern and cycle through charming landscapes to Bad Tölz. The location at the crossroads of two trade routes - the river Isar and the old salt route from Reichenhall to Allgäu - quickly became a thriving trading centre. The ornate mansions testify the golden age.


The Isar bike way leads you from Bad Tölz over Geretsried and Wolfratshausen directly to Grünwald. After a few short climbs you will arrive back in Bavaria’s state capital Munich. Individual departure or an additional night in Munich or the surrounding area.

Tour character

Overall, this is a rather easy tour. A few short climbs can be conquered easily by pushing the bike. You will cycle on beautiful bike ways and minor roads. Main roads will only be used for short distances. The route is mostly paved; some longer passages are on natural roads which are in good condition.
