Your cycle tour takes you to the most famous Bavarian lakes, you will marvel at majestic mountain ranges and stroll through picturesque little towns. The stage towns on this circular tour are colourful and baroque, but at the same time you can expect unspoilt nature and Bavarian traditions. The shorter daily stages give you time to take it easy, take breaks whenever the view fascinates you or go for a walk by one of the lakes. Enjoy the white-blue freedom and experience Bavarian hospitality. Simply let yourself be enchanted by Bavaria!

Highlights

Starnberger See
The Lake Starnberg has a surface area of approximately 56 square kilometres (22 sq mi) which makes it to the fourth largest lake in Germany and a great place for sightseeing. The lake Starnberger See is located in the southwest of Bavarians capital, the beautiful Munich.

Murnau
Murnau rises above the nature reserve Murnauer Moos and the three warmest bathing lakes of Upper Bavaria.

Garmisch Partenkirchen
Equally as endearing: the historic district of Partenkirchen. It’s jam-packed with fascinating history as well.

Zugspitze
You are at the top of the Zugspitze, at the golden summit cross, almost 3,000 metres above sea level. The air is clear, the view is almost endless and the panorama is magnificent. All distracting thoughts have stayed down in the valley. All around you is sky, mighty peaks and vastness, vastness, vastness.

Tegernsee - GmundUnadulterated, down-to-earth and tradition-conscious, Gmund presents itself to its guests. Do you want to get to know and enjoy the original Bavarian way of life? Then you are in good hands here.

Bad Tölz
Bad Tölz is a city with about 18,000 inhabitants: tranquil and yet versatile, with urban infrastructure and yet characterized by the rural idyll. And best of all, if you like, you can easily explore the sights of the town on foot.

Tour

After your arrival, you should use the time for a first walk around Lake Starnberg. If the weather is favourable, you can take your first refreshing dip in Lake Starnberg.

Today you get on your bikes for the first time. First you cycle to the southern shore of Lake Starnberg to Seeshaupt. From there, you cycle along beautiful paths through unspoilt Bavarian villages to the Osterseen lakes and the Riegsee lake. Take a short break there and enjoy the marvellous nature before you make your way to Murnau am Staffelsee, where you will spend the night today.

Today, the cycle path first takes you through the largest moorland area in central Europe, the Murnauer Moos nature reserve. As the stage progresses, you reach the Loisach, which you then follow to your overnight stay in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Today's stage is deliberately kept short, you should make the most of the time and take the Zugspitze railway up to Germany's highest mountain, the Zugspitze (2962 m) (on your own). From up there you have a fantastic view over the foothills of the Alps as far as Munich in the north and the Alps in the south, a highlight of your journey.

After breakfast, you make your way to Klais and on to the picturesque Barmsee lake, which reflects the white-blue sky and the Alps. Here you decide for yourself: Cycle directly to Wallgau, your overnight stay today (approx. 20 km) or take a detour via MIttenwald and Scharnitz to Isaquelle (approx. 70 km). From Barmsee to Scharnitz you have to climb around 300 metres in altitude. From Scharnitz, the route continues gently uphill through wild and romantic gorges and lush alpine meadows to the source of the Isar. On the way back, you can enjoy the marvellous panorama of the Karwendel and Wetterstein mountains before reaching Mittenwald. From there you continue to Wallgau, where Bavarian customs are still alive and well.

On your way to Bad Tölz today, you cycle through the Isarwinkel and follow the crystal-clear, turquoise-blue waters of the Isar to the impressive Sylvensteinsee lake. The route continues through the picturesque Bavarian countryside to Bad Tölz. Two trade routes crossed here - the Isar and the old salt route from Bad Reichenhall to the Allgäu, which quickly turned Bad Tölz into a flourishing trading centre. Even today you can still admire the richly decorated town houses, which bear witness to the heyday of trade in Bad Tölz.

Lake Tegernsee awaits you today: from Bad Tölz you cycle through the picturesque Tegernsee countryside to Gmund am Tegernsee. Enjoy the marvellous lake panorama and treat yourself in one of the beer gardens. Return to Bad Tölz through the Gaißbach valley. Back in Bad Tölz, the Tölzer Marktstraße (market street) invites you to follow in the footsteps of the well-known German TV series "Der Bulle von Tölz".

Your cycle tour of the Bavarian lakes ends with a leisurely stage over gentle hills and through lush meadows, which takes you back to the starting point at Lake Starnberg. Enjoy the views of the Alps along the way, soak up the panorama across the lake and bring your journey to a cosy end in a beer garden on Lake Starnberg. Perhaps the weather will allow you to take a refreshing dip in the lake.

After breakfast, your time at the Bavarian lakes will unfortunately come to an end and you will be travelling home. If you would like to spend a little more time at Lake Starnberg, we will be happy to book extra nights for you.
