Day 1: Arrival in Murnau
The arrival point with our car was Bad Tölz. There we were picked up by the station manager from Munich and taken to the starting point in Murnau. Our first accommodation – Hotel Griesbräu – is located in the middle of the beautiful pedestrian zone of Murnau. We received a friendly welcome and our room with a view of the Obermarkt was very spacious.
Since we arrived in the early afternoon, we still had enough time to explore Murnau. After a short refreshment in the hotel’s own beer garden, we set off towards Lake Staffelsee. You walk about 15 minutes from the village to the ‘Staffelsee outdoor pool’. There is a possibility to do a round tour by ship. After we had enjoyed the sun for a bit, we went back to the village to say ‘hello’ briefly at the Hotel Angerbräu. Then it was time for dinner at the hotel. Since we had a few days of cycling ahead of us, we chose roast beef and ‘Tafelspitz’ to build our strength. We ended the day with a glass of wine in a nice café in the pedestrian zone.
