Cycling in the Chiemgau

Shining water as far as the eye can see

 

 

A Cycle Tour in the Chiemgau Lake District is a Cultural Delight

You don’t have to cycle very far in Chiemgau in order to be able to see the water. The region in south-east Bavaria has a dense water network consisting of rivers, lakes and other bodies of water too. The largest body of water in Bavaria and also the region’s trademark feature is the expansive Lake Chiemsee. Don’t be surprised if there is a constant slight babble that seems to be following you on your bike tour in Southern Germany.

 

 

Enjoyment that just keeps on going kilometre after kilometre: Bike Holidays in Chiemgau

Push hard against those peddles because the Chiemgau delicacies are widely available. A “Brotzeit” (bread time) with cheese, ham and black bread provides you with enough energy for each stage. A meal in Chiemgau is of course not complete without fish though. In all of the guesthouses around the lakes and rivers you will be cooked different dishes. You sure should try a “Steckerlfisch”, which is a fish grilled on a stick in the traditional way a fisherman would do so. A vendace (Renke in German), grilled over a charcoal fire is one of the most popular delicacies in the region.

Traditions meet Fairy Tales in Chiemgau and complement each other perfectly

Rural tradition is to be seen all over Chiemgau. Discover true tradition on your bike tour with Eurobike. The traditional dress is in no way only dragged out of the wardrobe for particular festive events here; instead it is actually worn because they enjoy wearing it and therefore they wear it often. With a bit of luck, you will see a couple of fine examples of people in traditional dress in the town centre when in Rosenheim, Altötting and Wasserburg. In Chiemgau, it is not only the “Lederhosen” (leather shorts) and the “Dirndl” (a traditional style dress) that belongs to the traditional dress but also hats, and shoes as well as plaited hair and make-up for the ladies. All of this is an important part of the tradition!

Lake Chiemsee – based in one hotel

7 Days | Self-guided tour
Everywhere you look is fantastic mountain scenery, blooming meadows and always a view of the blue beauty. The ‘Bavarian Sea’, the Chiemsee, is your constant companion on your tour, and is always on hand to cool off tired feet. The route also boasts ancient castles and monasteries. In the evenings you spend the night in a beautiful area right on the lake. The best place to sit is on a lakeside terrace while toasting the day’s bike trip with a glass of wine! Details of the bike tour at Lake Chiemsee The nice thing about a centre-based tour: you come back ‘home’ every evening and can simply relax. On the bike tour you spend the nights in two first-class hotels that impress with their Bavarian style and warm hospitality. On two wheels you cycle for seven or eight days through the Alpine foothills. On day two, a real highlight awaits you: the Eggstätter Seenplatte. It consists of 17 lakes and is full of picturesque corners. It is also the oldest nature reserve in Bavaria. Highlight of the cycle tour in the Chiemsee region: Visit the Herreninsel and Fraueninsel:  A ship takes you to two islands. Once there, we recommend a visit to the famous castle Herrenchiemsee of King Ludwig II. On Fraueninsel you will find the oldest German-speaking nunnery north of the Alps. Blooming gardens, pottery and fish smokehouses await you! Important information about the cycle tour at Lake Chiemsee Foodies take note! The tour on the Chiemsee is the ideal mixture of landscape, culture and culinary delights. The Bavarian hospitality and the traditional inns with living customs create an unmistakable feel-good atmosphere. Over seven or eight days you will experience the southernmost state of Germany from its most beautiful angle. On flat paths you cycle between 40 and 65 kilometres per day. From time to time a short climb awaits you. Longer distances lead through the passable natural paths and on side roads. The landscape and the Bavarians will enchant you, promise!
