Cycling Lake Constance to Bavaria

Day 1: Individual arrival in Constance

You begin your trip in Constance, which is the largest town on Lake Constance, and is still quite Medieval in character to this day. In 1414, the town hosted the only church council ever to take place north of the Alps. A small museum is dedicated to the Czech reformer Jan Hus, who was burnt at the stake here. The symbol of the city is the statue of Imperia, which is a memorial to the prostitutes of the council time. The aquariums of the Sea Life Center are also worth a visit, as is the Archaeological Museum.

Day 2: Constance – Lindau, approx. 50 km + ferry trip

Take the car ferry to Meersburg and explore the historical town centre. When you have mastered the steep ascent to the picturesque castle, you are rewarded with a fabulous view. You cycle further along the lake, through Friedrichshafen, the birthplace of the Zeppelin and onwards to Lindau, the town located on an in island. The famous lighthouse and the harbour are a great destination for an evening stroll.

Day 3: Lindau – Oberstaufen, approx. 55 km

You leave Lake Constance behind you and with a little luck you have a beautiful panoramic view of the Alps. Your destination for the day is Oberstaufen which is a market town in Upper Allgäu. In the show dairy, you can see not only how the tasty cheese are made, but you get to try them to. Enjoy the quiet atmosphere in these traditional places of the Alpine foothills in Bavaria.

Day 4: Oberstaufen – Nesselwang, approx. 50 km

You cycle past Lake Großer Alpsee and through stunning valleys to Immenstadt. Green cow meadows, magnificent Baroque churches and crystal blue water characterise the landscape. After Lake Grüntensee you reach Nesselwang. You can take the cable railway up to the peak of the Alpspitze. Alternatively, you can marvel at the more than 2500 painted and decorated eggs at the easter museum.

Day 5: Nesselwang – Füssen / Schwangau, approx. 25 – 60 km

An impressive mountain backdrop accompanies you to Füssen near Lake Forggensee. The picturesque landscape is crowned by the Hohes Schloss, an impressive late Gothic castle. You cycle further along the Romantic Road to Schwangau and soon you feel like you’re in a fairy tale: The picturesque Royal Palaces Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau are visible from afar. If you want to cycle a longer distance, just go around the Forggensee, Germany’s largest reservoir, with beautiful bathing places.

Day 6: Füssen – Murnau am Staffelsee, approx. 50 / 45 km

You leave the castles of Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau behind you. En route to Murnau on Lake Staffelsee you cycle through idyllic meadows filled with the romance of alpen meadows. You pass the world famous Wieskirche, the church which embodies the Bavarian Rococo style. Set in a magnificent lake and moor landscape, Lake Staffelsee with its seven islands set against the backdrop of the Upper Bavarian Alps, comes into view.

Day 7: Murnau – Lake Starnberg, approx. 60 km

You leave Murnau, the biggest parish with its castle museum and Münter house and cycle through traditional old Bavarian villages on wonderful cycle paths. On the way, delightful bathing places tempt you to go for a dip. Riegsee Lake and the Ostersee Lakes prepare you for today's destination, Starnberg Lake.

Day 8: Individual departure or extension of stay

After breakfast your tour from Lake Constance to Upper Bavaria comes to an end. We would be more than happy to extend your stay.
