Day-by-Day Cycling Holiday Itinerary


1st day: Arrival in Munich

Personal tour information and bike fitting. The capital city of the Free State of Bavaria invites you to stay in one of its many beer gardens and get into the mood for the bike tour by drinking a “Radlermaß” (a glass of beer and lemonade).

2nd day: Munich – Bad Tölz approx. 60 km

The Isar cycle path will lead you through green forests, via Wolfratshausen and Geretsried, to Bad Tölz. The town, located 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. The Tölzer Market Street invites you to learn more about the famous television series “Der Bulle von Tölz”.

3rd day: Bad Tölz – Lake Schliersee approx. 35 km

Today, you will cycle through the scenic landscape of Lake Tegernsee, over gently rolling hills, to Lake Tegernsee. In Gmund you will be able to enjoy a magnificent panoramic view of the lake. We recommend taking a boat trip or going for a swim! Later, you will continue on the Bodensee-Königssee bike path to Lake Schliersee.

4th day: Lake Schliersee – Bad Feilnbach/Surroundings approx. 35/50 km

First, you will cycle directly along the lake shore and on slightly hilly roads to Bad Feilnbach. Because of the mild climate and more than 30,000 fruit trees, the moor spa area is also called the “Bavarian Merano”. And your today’s destination is a colourfully decorated town too.

5th day: Bad Feilnbach/Surroundings – Lake Chiemsee approx. 30/45 km

You will ride your bike through the largest peat mining area of Bavaria, the Kollerfilze, and soon you will reach Neubeuern. All over the town, you will see two crossed ship hooks, the emblem of Neubeuern and a sign of the shipbuilding industry, which once was the residents’ main source of income. Then, you will cycle via Frasdorf at the foot of the Chiemgau Mountains to Lake Chiemsee. Today’s destination is located on the southern lakeshore of the “Bavarian sea”. We recommend taking a boat trip to the islands Herrenchiemsee and Frauenchiemsee.

6th day: Lake Chiemsee – Inzell approx. 50 km

The mountains are getting higher and higher, but the bike path stays almost flat. You will cycle through the “Bergener Moos” on the foot of Mount Hochfelln (1,674 metres), via Bad Adelholzen (healing spring), to Siegsdorf (natural history museum). From there, you will continue your journey along the river Rote Traun to the idyllic town of Inzell. The famous Lüftlmalerei paintings on the beautifully decorated town houses are typical for the climatic health resort.

7th day: Inzell – Salzburg approx. 55 km

Today’s stage will take you on narrow paths between the mountains, along the German Alpine Road via Schneitzlreuth and along the river Saalach to Bad Reichenhall (saline building, cathedral St. Zeno, spa park). On your way back, you will cycle across the border between Bavaria and Austria to Salzburg.

8th day: Departure or Extension of Trip
