individual cycle tour | 7 days / 6 nightsMunich Lakes
Isar Cycle Path and Bavarian Lakes.
The joy of life, clean air, the blue-white freedom. Take some time for yourself and free your body and spirit. Cycle past famous Bavarian lakes with excellent water quality, marvel at the majestic mountain ranges, and stroll through flowery, ornate old towns. The towns along this tour are colourful and baroque. Enjoy unspoiled nature and Bavarian tradition. Bavaria gives vitality, Bavaria is enchanting!
Day 1: Arrival in Munich
Welcome briefing and bike fitting. The capital city of Bavaria is awaiting you and invites you to visit its many attractions (English Garden, Town Hall, Hofbräuhaus,…).
Day 2: Munich – Murnau am Staffelsee approx. 65 km
From Munich, the tour starts with a bike ride through Forstenrieder Park to Lake Starnberg. Then you will cycle on the lakeside road to Seeshaupt. You will continue on wonderful ways through rustic Bavarian towns, past the Osterseen lakes and Lake Riegsee to Murnau am Staffelsee.
Day 3: Murnau – Garmisch-Partenkirchen approx. 40 km
First, you will cycle through the natural reserve called Murnauer Moos (largest swamp area of Central Europe). Later, you will continue your tour through unspoiled nature following the River Loisach to Garmisch-Partenkirchen. The stage is intentionally brief. Therefore, there is still enough time for an individual trip with the Zugspitzbahn, a mountain railway. At an altitude of 2962 meters, you will have a wonderful view of the Alps.
Day 4: Garmisch-Partenkirchen – Wallgau approx. 45 km
You will take the train to Scharnitz to bridge an altitude of 300 meters. From there, you will cycle uphill through wildly romantic gorges and lush meadows to the spring of the River Isar. Afterwards, you will cycle back through a sunny valley where you will have a marvellous panoramic view of the mountains of Karwendel and Wettersteingebirge, passing Mittenwald and finally arriving in Wallgau – a place where the Bavarian tradition is still a part of everyday life.
Day 5: Wallgau – Bad Tölz approx. 50 km
Passing the Isarwinkel, you will follow the crystal-clear, turquoise waters of the impressive Lake Sylvenstein. Cycling through charming landscapes, you will pass Lenggries and finally arrive in Bad Tölz. The location at the crossroads of two trade routes - the River Isar and the old salt route from Reichenhall to Allgäu - quickly became a thriving trading centre. The ornate mansions testify the golden age.
Day 6: Bad Tölz – Munich approx. 60 km
The Isar bike way leads you from Bad Tölz over Geretsried and Wolfratshausen directly to Grünwald. After a few short climbs you will arrive back in Bavaria’s state capital Munich, where you can explore its countless sights and attractions.
Day 7: Departure or extension
The routeOverall, this is a rather easy tour. A few short climbs can be conquered easily by pushing the bike. You will cycle on beautiful bike ways and minor roads. Main roads will only be used for short distances. The route is mostly paved; some longer passages are on natural roads which are in good condition.

Great routevon Alastair Kerr | Jun 26, 2016
A very nice route and great scenery.
Ian's Munich Lakes 2016von Ian Retson | Jun 1, 2016
Excellent varied route of lakes, mountains and river. Mostly good surfaces but a mountain bike would be better for a good proportion of tracks. Maps and directions mostly easy to follow; distances not wholly accurate in places. Need to keep careful eye out for signs as easy to miss in places. Only a few places not signed e.g. last day in forest entering Munich choice of steep uphill or downhill with no arrow. 21 gear model essential for this tour as some steep climbs - one very steep cobbled climb on Lake Tegernsee day not even mentioned.
Great landscapes!von Guadalupe Fernández Porto | May 29, 2016
Great and amazing landscapes. Very good hotels and staff members. Some paths were challenging, but at the end of the day it was worth the effort!
An Experiencevon Donald Paterson | May 2, 2016
Unfortunately our Munich Lakes tour coincided with a blast of Arctic weather with snow blizzards and freezing temperatures for the 1st 5 days. Strangely enough it actually added something to the trip and some of the winter scenery we came across will long live in the memory. We found the first day very long and hard (partly due to the weather) and, in hindsight, we wish we had broken the journey up by staying at Lake Starnberg. Apart from this the planning, route choice and accommodation provided were all first class. Certainly a trip we will never forget!
Highly recommendedvon Thora Hirst | Sep 24, 2015
The Bavarian Lakes tour was one of the best holidays I have ever experienced. Everything was very well organised and it was easy to follow the route. We where 10 people on a self-guided tour and we really enjoyed the land, the nature, the food and the good company we had.
