Of course, Bavaria has much more to offer than the clichés of romantic royal castles, Oktoberfest, and white-blue coziness. And what better way to discover the culture, the country, and its people than on a cycling tour through Bavaria?

It's true that you can't discover Bavaria's highest point by bike. After all, the summit of the Zugspitze is at 2962 m. But on a cycling holiday through Upper Bavaria, you can get very close to the highest mountain in Germany and perhaps take the Zugspitzbahn from Garmisch-Partenkirchen for a leisurely ride to the summit.

But instead, you can reach the lowest point in Bavaria on a cycling tour along the Main: Kahl am Main, located between Aschaffenburg and Frankfurt, is at 100 m.

Between these two places, a diverse destination awaits you with classic cycling regions such as the Altmühl, Inns, and Danube. But also the hillier regions in the Allgäu or Franconia, through whose valleys you can cycle in a surprisingly relaxed way. Or you can cycle – perhaps supported by an e-bike – on the insider tips Romantic Road or Lake Constance-Königssee Cycle Path.

In the south-east of Germany, we have a suitable cycling tour in Bavaria for every taste.
