Munich Lakes

Tradition, Idyll and Metropolitan Flair



Tour profile: Level 2

You cycle on well-marked and paved cycle paths (Isar-, Lake Constance-Königssee- and Via Bavarica Tyrolensis-cycle paths) as well as on quiet side roads (only on short sectors on main roads) and a few unpaved but well drivable distances. A few short climbs can be overcome easily sliding.

Day 1: Munich

Individual arrival in the Bavarian capital, which lure visitors from around the world with many attractions. Especially worth seeing is the English garden with its Chinese tower, the church Frauenkirche, the Nymphenburg Palace and the square Marienplatz. Let’s visit one of the many Bavarian beer gardens and enjoy the hospitality and the Bavarian flair while drinking a beer in a 1l-mug (so called “Maß”).

Day 2: Munich – Lake Starnberg, approx. 35 - 60 km

Your first bike stage takes you south west of Munich via the lakes Weßlinger and Pilsensee to lake Ammersee, the third largest lake in Bavaria. Allow yourselves a little break in Herrsching to enjoy the fantastic view over the lake. Past the Abbey Andechs you reach Lake Starnberg. For those who would like to start the trip more comfortable can cycle directly to Lake Starnberg.

Day 3: Lake Starnberg – Staffelsee/Kochelsee, approx. 45-65 km

Along the east side of Lake Starnberg you cycle till Seeshaupt. Shortly before, there is a nice swimming area where you can cool off on hot days. A real insider tip is the fantastic view over the romantic Riegsee, before you reach the Staffelsee.

Day 4: Staffelsee/Kochelsee – Bad Tölz, approx. 45-65 km

Your today’s stage leads you along the Lake Constance-Königssee cycle path to the Kochelsee. From here you follow the cycle path further to Benediktbeuern and Bad Heilbrunn to Bad Tölz. The health resort, well known for the German crime movie „Der Bulle von Tölz“, has a lot to offer. The love to tradition and homeland is still an everyday life here.

Day 5: Bad Tölz – Tegernsee, approx. 20 - 60 km

Let’s take time and take absolutely a look at the Tölzer market street or on the baroque double church with the two slender towers (“crown and Tölz”) on the Kalvarienberg, befor you cycle along the glacier green Isar towards Munich. Directly on the Isar cycle path goes through Geretsried and Wolfratshausen through the “Grünwalder” forest to Grünwald. The white pebbles benches invites you to stay. Today’s stage to Munich is rich in tourist attractions (monastery Schäftlarn, movie city Geiselgasteig, Hellabrunn Zoo,...). Alternatively there is the possibility to go from Bad Tölz to Holzkirchen per Oberlandbahnd (on your own) and from there to cycle to Munich (approx. 35 km).

Day 6: Tegernsee – Munich, approx. 25 - 65 km

The bike path Via Bavarica Tyrolensis brings you directly from Tegernsee back to the Bavarian capital. Anyone who wants can shorten the stage per Oberlandbahn to about 25 km (has to be organized by yourself).
