Your cycling tour

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.

Day 1 : Arrival in Munich


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

Day 2 : Munich – Murnau am Staffelsee | 65 km


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.

Day 3 : Murnau – Füssen/Schwangau | 60 km


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.

Day 4 : Füssen/Schwangau – Nesselwang | 25 km


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.

Day 5 : Nesselwang – Oberstaufen | 50 km


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.

Day 6 : Oberstaufen – Lindau/Nonnenhorn | 50 km


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.
