Day-by-Day Cycling Holiday Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival in Munich

Welcome briefing and bike fitting. Bavaria’s capital is waiting for you with its many attractions (English gardens, town hall, Hofbräuhaus…)

Day 2: Munich – Bad Tölz approx. 60 km

The Isar bike path will take you through lush alluvial forests via Wolfratshausen and Geretsried to Bad Tölz, which is the intersection point of two trade routes – the Isar and the old salt road from Reichenhall to Allgäu. Bad Tölz therefore developed very fast into a cargo transfer site.

The richly ornamented town houses are a testimony to Bad Tölz’ heyday.

Day 3: Trip to lake Tegernsee approx. 45 km

You cycle through the charming Tegernsee landscape until you get to Gmund Tegernsee with its beautiful panoramic view. Cycle along the Gaißbachtal back to Bad Tölz. The thermal water in the famous spa resorts “Alpamare” revitalises tired muscles. The Tölzer market road invites you to go for a walk in the traces of the well-known German TV series “Der Bulle von Tölz”.

Day 4: Bad Tölz – Strass/Zillertal approx. 50 – 75 km

The bike path runs along the length of the river Isar via Lengries to the impressive lake Sylvenstein. Like a fjord, the reservoir is rimmed by high mountains on the way to Austria.

Soon after the border. You cycle past the well-known lake Achensee. You cycle along the river bank, whilst on either side of you, the mountains raise steeply upwards. You then head down into the Inn valley and then you have several kilometres until you get to Strass and the Zillertal valley.

Day 5: Trip to the Zillertal valley approx. 40-70 km

You cycle easily along the Zillertal cycle path until you get to Mayrhofen.

You will have a view of the fascinating Zillertal main ridge with its over 3000m tall mountains as your mountain backdrop. You can visit the glaciers by taking the cable car. You then cycle downhill along the river Ziller out of the valley.

Day 6: Strass/Zillertal – Innsbruck approx. 45 km

You cycle along the Inn cycle path past Schwaz (Silberschaubergwerk) and then to Wattens. Our recommendation: pay a visit to the delightful Swarovski crystal world! You then continue via the saline city hall with its historical Münzerturm accompanied by the steep Nordkette mountain chain.

The historic old town with its “Golden Roof” and its modern hybrid funicular railway (the Hungerburgbahn) are the last set of contrasts that you will see on this tour.

Day 7: Departure or extension
