Itinerary

Welcome briefing and bike fitting. Bavaria’s state capital has countless sights in store for all visitors (English Gardens, town hall, Hofbräuhaus,…).

Hotel (example) Sheraton Westpark

From Munich, first you cycle through the Forstenrieder park. A former hunting ground of the Wittelsbacher and with an area of 2100 hectars, it is a paradise for nature enthusiasts. Via Gauting along the ‚Königlich-Bayerischen’- cycle path on a slightly hilly terrain towards lake Ammer. Before that however you come across the regal Andechs monastery. Then a well-earned break, a so-called ‚Brotzeit’ with a ‚Maß’ (1 litre) beer (inclusive) in a shady beer garden before you are back on your bike, enjoying a roaring descent towards the lakeside. Your accommodation will either be in Herrsching or Dießen.

Hotel (example) Hotel Seefelder Hof

Today you start with a relaxing boat trip from Herrsching to Dießen (season from 01.05. until 21.09.). By bike, you continue towards along the river Ammer to Weilheim in ‘Pfaffenwinkel’. This name is due to the numerous monasteries and 159 churches in this area. Via lush meadows and through deep green forests, the route takes you all the way to the banks of lake Starnberger See. Journey by boat from Herrsching to Dießen (season 01/05 till 21/09) Your accommodations are either in Bernried or Ambach.

Hotel (example) Landhotel Huber am See

Today you cycle all the way around possibly the best-known lake in Bavaria. The cycle path takes you from one lakeside resort to the next, past villas of Bavarian celebrities, quaint shady beer gardens and picturesque swimming bays.

Straight away you cycle past the idyllic lakes ’Osterseen’. They form a chain of 19 little lakes and are certainly always pleasant to swim in. Then through unspoilt Bavarian villages and along lake Riegsee and from there it is not far to Murnau with its beautiful town square. After that you cycle past the ’Murnauer Moos’ and the well-known stud farm Schwaiganger until you see lake Kochel in the distance. We especially recommend visiting the amazing Franz Marc museum!

Hotel (example) Alpenhof Postillion

This is a short tour with tons of time left over to enjoy and relax. Already after a few cycling kilometres through the Kocheler Moos, the shady beer garden of the Benediktbeuern monastery invites you for a first break. Once you have reached today’s destination, Bad Tölz, there is a lot to see! Two ancient trading routes brought all the wealth to this town, of which the elaborately decorated houses in the market road are still living testimony. If you feel more like relaxing, then you have the perfect spot in the thermal waters of the spa ‚Alpamare’ at your disposal.

Hotel (example) Hotel Kolberbräu / Kolbergarten

The Isar cycle path leads you via Geretsried and Wolfratshausen to Grünwald. There are still a few little ascents to overcome before you reach the state capital Munich, where countless tourist attractions are waiting to be explored.

Hotel (example) Sheraton Westpark

Tour character

Overall easy terrain. There are a few short ascents which can also easily be tackled by pushing the bike uphill. You cycle on marvellous cycle paths and little side roads, only on short sections on main roads. The route is mainly asphalted, a few longer sections are on well-maintained dirt or gravel roads.
