Cyclists on the bridge to Seeon Monastery

Lake Chiemsee – based in one hotel

Picturesque Alpine Foothills and “The Bavarian Sea”

7 Days / 6 Nights
Cyclists on the bridge to Seeon Monastery

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!

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.

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!

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!
