Tour information and bike fitting. We recommend taking a stroll through the romantic inner city with its Max Josef square and through the park of the former Provincial Garden Show at the Inn meadows.

2nd day: Rosenheim – Wasserburg approx. 35 km

Taking the cycle path along the river Inn, you will get to Wasserburg. On your way, you should visit the famous rococo church in Rott am Inn. Wasserburg, the town at the loop of the river Inn, is absolutely worth seeing.

The vibrant historic old town impresses with its colourful Gothic houses and you can discover many hidden gems in the city.

3rd day: Wasserburg – Mühldorf approx. 50 km

Today, you will cycle comfortably along the beautiful Inn cycle path to Gars with its Redemptorist monastery and then further to Jettenbach. Here, you should definitely taste the traditional Bavarian beer of the royal brewery of the Counts of Toerring.

At the end of today’s stage, you will get to the historic city centre of Mühldorf with its typical buildings in the typical Inn-Salzach style.

4th day: Mühldorf – Trostberg/Altenmarkt approx. 55 km

The river Inn’s meanders will lead you to Altötting, which has been the most important place of pilgrimage in Germany for more than 500 years.

Do not miss the “Black Madonna” in the famous chapel “Gnadenkapelle” on the Kapellplatz square. Then, you will continue your journey along the river Alz to Trostberg/Altenmarkt. We recommend a visit to the former monastery Baumburg of the Augustinian canons.

5th day: Trostberg/Altenmarkt – Lake Chiemsee approx. 40 km

The former Benedictine monastery Seeon is one of the most beautiful historic buildings in the Chiemgau region and is now used as a cultural and educational centre.

Soon, you will have reached the nature reserve Eggstätter Seenplatte. 18 lakes and forests form a unique landscape, which make hikers and bikers particularly happy.

On wonderful paths, you will continue your trip to Lake Chiemsee. Tonight, you will stay in a pretty town such as Prien, Bernau, and Übersee, among others.

6th day: Lake Chiemsee. approx. 60km

The “Bavarian Sea” offers many opportunities for a beautiful day. You can take a boat to the islands Herrenchiemsee (Kind Ludwig’s Castle) and Frauenchiemsee (optional). Or you can ride your bike around the entire lake.

Parts of this stage can also be done by boat or by taking a special bike bus (optional). And, of course, you can also relax at one of the many bathing facilities at the lake.

7th day: Lake Chiemsee – Rosenheim approx. 40 km

Via Rimsting, you will cycle on scenic trails from Lake Chiemsee to Lake Simsee, the favourite lake of the people in Rosenheim.

Idyllically embedded in a gently rolling landscape, this lake possesses largely pristine riparian zones full of reed. From here, it is not far to Rosenheim, where you first started your tour.
