Individual arrival in the Bavarian capital. Take some time to visit the numerous attractions such as the English Garden or the townhall, or just enjoy the hustle and bustle with a delicious beer at the Hofbräuhaus.
For the first part of your journey, you will follow the course of the Isar river. Dreamy flooded forests and the calming rush of the river will accompany you for the whole day. Today’s goal is the old diocesan town of Freising. Its 1300 years of history are clearly demonstrated by the impressive monuments and historic buildings.
Soon you leave the Isar behind to join the Abens bicycle path. Today you will pass through the lovely Hallertau, the world’s largest continuous hop-growing region. This leg of the journey is characterised by rolling hills, lush meadows and idyllic villages. Via Abensberg, you will quickly reach the health and spa resort of Bad Gögging on the Danube.
Following the course of the Danube, you will soon reach Kelheim. The Danube gorge between Weltenburg and Kelheim offers a magnificent view. At the Weltenburg Abbey, you can hop on a ship and observe the cliffs up close from the water (not included; price: approx. € 11 per person with bike ticket included). The UNESCO World Heritage Site Regensburg is your finishing point today. Make sure to take the time to visit the venerable constructions such as the cathedral and the Stone Bridge.
Make some time for a long stroll through the city. Today you will follow the beautiful course of the river Regen and pass by gorgeous deciduous forests, floodplains and natural landscapes. Roding is the ideal place for a midday pause, known far and wide as the gate to the Bavarian forest. Continuing along the many meanders of the river Regen, you will soon reach today’s goal - Cham.
A tour of the over 1000-year-old Cham will enchant you before you hop on your bike for the next part of the tour. At first, you will follow the banks of the river Chamb, which will quickly lead you to the “Drachenstich” town Furth im Wald. The “Drachenstich” is Germany’s oldest folk theatre piece and re-enacts the slaying of a dragon, drawing tens of thousands of visitors each year. On a tour through the dragon caves, you will find out all about the story of the Furth im Wald dragon, the theatre piece as well as the technology behind the world’s largest 4-legged walking robot. The Czech border is just a few kilometres away from Furth. Once across the border and on the Bohemian side, the road will lead you straight to Domazlice.
The charming Domazlice is sure to delight you. Nestled in untouched nature, the town has a lively folklore tradition. In the centre, there are numerous colourful Renaissance houses with pergolas. You will pass through splendid landscapes and visit lots of small villages on your bicycle. A good Pils is the perfect end to the day and makes up for any exertions along the way.
For large parts of today’s route, you will pedal your way through tranquil landscapes and nature parks. Small, idyllic villages like Dobřív are scattered along the way. Your goal, Beroun, invites one to linger a while, and its mediaeval city walls can easily be explored on foot.
The last step starts off by following the river Berounka. Soon you will reach Karlštejn. The High Gothic castle there was built in 1348 and is known far and wide. Shortly before Prague, the Berounka joins the Vltava, and this river will then lead you right into the city centre of Prague. The Czech metropolis is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. An evening stroll is the perfect end to this impression-filled bicycle tour.
Your tour ends after breakfast. Then you can either decide to extend your stay, or avail of our comfortable transfer service with the bicycle transport van.
The road quality varies widely. The route follows both well-paved cycle paths and bumpy, unsurfaced dirt tracks and forest trails. For the most part, you will cycle along separate cycle paths and secondary roads, with only a few sections featuring heavier traffic. Please note that the Czech part of the route includes some steep climbs and requires a good level of fitness. The signposting of the route is generally good.
