Your cycling tour in Bavaria

The joy of life, clean air, the blue-white freedom. Take some time for yourself and free your body and spirit. Cycle past famous Bavarian lakes with excellent water quality, marvel at the majestic mountain ranges, and stroll through flowery, ornate old towns. The towns along this tour are colourful and baroque. Enjoy unspoiled nature and Bavarian tradition. Bavaria gives vitality, Bavaria is enchanting!

Day 1 : Arrival in Munich

The starting point of the tour is the beautiful Munich in Bavaria! Settle in to your hotel, 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,…).

Day 2 : Munich – Murnau am Staffelsee | 65 km

From Munich, the tour starts with a bike ride through Forstenrieder Park to Lake Starnberg. Then you will cycle on the lakeside road to Seeshaupt. You will continue on wonderful ways through rustic Bavarian towns, past the Osterseen lakes and Lake Riegsee to Murnau am Staffelsee.

Day 3 : Murnau – Garmisch Partenkirchen | 40 km

First, you will cycle through the nature reserve called Murnauer Moos (largest swamp area of Central Europe). Later, you will continue your tour through unspoiled nature following the River Loisach to Garmisch Partenkirchen. The stage is intentionally brief. Therefore, there is still enough time for an individual trip with the Zugspitzbahn, a mountain railway. At an altitude of 2962 meters, you will have a wonderful view of the Alps.

Day 4 : Garmisch Partenkirchen – Wallgau | 45 km

You will take the train to Scharnitz to bridge an altitude of 300 meters. From there, you will cycle uphill through wildly romantic gorges and lush meadows to the spring of the River Isar. Afterwards, you will cycle back through a sunny valley where you will have a marvellous panoramic view of the mountains of Karwendel and Wettersteingebirge, passing Mittenwald and finally arriving in Wallgau – a place where the Bavarian tradition is still a part of everyday life.

Day 5 : Wallgau – Bad Tölz | 50 km

Passing the Isarwinkel, you will follow the crystal-clear, turquoise waters of the impressive Lake Sylvenstein. Cycling through charming landscapes, you will pass Lenggries and finally arrive in 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.

Day 6 : Bad Tölz – Tegernsee - Bad Tölz | 45 km

You will cycle through the scenic Tegernsee countryside to Gmund at Lake Tegernsee where you will have a beautiful panoramic view of the lake. Following the valley Gaißbach, you will come back to Bad Tölz. The Tölzer Market Street invites you to learn more about the famous television series “Der Bulle von Tölz”.

Day 7 : Bad Tölz – Munich | 60 km

The Isar bike path 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, where you can explore its countless sights and attractions.
