Cycling holidays in Upper Bavaria

Cycling tours in Upper Bavaria, Isar Valley

Cycling holidays in Upper Bavaria are synonymous with cycling through picturesque landscape panoramas. You will feel like you are in a travel guide for Bavaria. Well-known long-distance cycle routes wind between the Wetterstein and Mangfall mountains and the Chiemgau and Berchtesgaden Alps in the south and the foothills of the Alps with numerous lakes in the north.

Parts of the Danube Cycle Path, the German section of the Inn Cycle Path, the Isar Cycle Path, and the Lake Constance-Königssee Cycle Path are worth mentioning here. The region of Upper Bavaria is not only blessed with scenic beauty but also with sights that are famous beyond the state's borders.

So it is difficult to decide where to even start your cycling holiday in Upper Bavaria. If you have not seen the fairytale castles of King Ludwig II, Herrenchiemsee, Neuschwanstein, or Hohenschwangau during your visit, you have not experienced Upper Bavaria. If you have not been to the Bavarian capital Munich, you do not know Upper Bavaria. If you haven't seen the glittering lakes like Ammersee, Chiemsee, Königssee, or Starnberger See, you've missed out. If you haven't stopped at a beer garden at least once, you absolutely must come back.

Our bike tour around the Munich Lakes in Bavaria takes you deep into Upper Bavaria. You cycle along stretches of the rushing Isar, over meadows and through forests, past Staffelsee, Kochelsee, and Starnberger See. The cozy village of Bad Tölz is on the way, as is the famous monastery village of Benediktbeuren. The start and finish of this cycle tour through Upper Bavaria is the cosmopolitan city of Munich. The onion domes of the Frauenkirche (Church of Our Lady), the Marienplatz with its famous bells and figurines, the Olympic Park or the Viktualienmarkt (Victuals Market) make the stay very entertaining.

Our cycle tour around  Munich Lakes also starts from Munich. Here you will get to know Lake Kochel, Lake Riegsee, Lake Ammersee and Lake Starnberg from the saddle during the one-week cycle tour. Andechs Monastery, Bavaria's oldest place of pilgrimage, beckons, as does Weilheim, the center of Upper Bavaria's Pfaffenwinkel region, and Benediktbeuren Abbey with its secluded beer garden. The beer is still brewed in the baroque monastery complex in the old beer tradition.

And because Munich is so beautiful, the cycle tour through Upper Bavaria also begins and ends in Munich. For ten days you cycle past Lake Starnberg and Lake Staffelsee and arrive in the beautiful towns of Bad Tölz and Murnau. A day of relaxation in Garmisch-Partenkirchen allows you to conquer the Zugspitze with the suspension railway and the double overnight stay in Bad Tölz allows you to visit Lake Tegernsee or the Alpamare spa.

Lake Chiemsee is the third largest lake in Germany. This is where you will spend your holidays during your cycling holiday at Lake Chiemsee. There is no need to pack your suitcase every day because your base is in Pelham am See. From there, you will undertake excursions in all directions and explore the cycling region around Lake Chiemsee day after day against a unique natural backdrop. Look forward to numerous treasures such as Herreninsel and Fraueninsel, the beautiful old town of Rosenheim, or Seeon Monastery, a former Benedictine abbey.

You can take your time for a fortnight on the cycling tour from Lake Constance to Königssee. From the largest city on Lake Constance, the council city of Constance, you cycle along the Lake Constance-Königssee cycle path through the hilly Alpine foothills to Salzburg. Past important and impressive cultural and natural monuments such as Neuschwanstein Castle, Lake Chiemsee with Herrenchiemsee Castle or Lake Königssee: you always have the summit world of the Allgäu, Bavarian, and Berchtesgaden Alps in view. Another highlight awaits you in Salzburg at the end of the tour.

On our cycle tour from Augsburg to Neuschwanstein Castle, you can look forward to lots of unspoiled nature, Andechs Monastery, and, of course, Neuschwanstein Castle. King Ludwig II's dream castle welcomes 7,000 visitors every day! The Lech cycle path is especially popular with families and partly follows the historic Via Claudia Augusta, one of the most important Roman roads in southern Germany.

Our bike tour from Munich to Salzburg takes you along the Alps from the Weisswurst capital to the Mozart and festival city. Via Bad Tölz you cycle through the alpine country with its many lakes. Stately townhouses and idyllic squares in medieval towns enchant just as much as the intact nature of the

Our bike tour along the Romantic Road is not only something for romantics but for all cycling enthusiasts who want to experience the charm of Rothenburg ob der Tauber, the Fugger city of Augsburg, Neuschwanstein Castle, and the magnificent Dinkelsbühl. You will be amazed by the density of medieval half-timbered houses, baroque churches, and magnificent castles. You cycle through various natural landscapes with vineyards, beech forests, torrents, and floodplain forests.

The bike tour from Lake Chiemsee to Lake Königssee is sure to make you slow down. Lake Chiemsee, Bavaria's third largest lake, is nestled in the breathtaking nature of the foothills of the Alps. Without a doubt, Herrenchiemsee Castle is one of the biggest magnets. And Lake Königssee is in no way inferior. The rocks of the Berchtesgaden Alps seem to drop almost vertically into the lake. The baroque pilgrimage church of St Bartholomew with its wine-red onion domes can only be reached by boat. Good thing, because this way you can also enjoy the spectacular scenery from a new perspective.
