Lake Chiemsee – based in one hotel

Picturesque Alpine Foothills and “The Bavarian Sea”

8 Days / 7 Nights
View of Seeon Monastery

The primary highlight of this based in one hotel cycling tour is Lake Chiemsee, known as the "Bavarian Sea," and it's the largest lake in Bavaria. The Romans were quick to appreciate the region's natural splendor. Over the course of your vacation, you'll embark on numerous cycling expeditions and boat voyages, affording you the opportunity to relish the breathtaking scenery. This area is renowned for its pristine lakes and rivers, framed by a majestic mountain panorama. You'll also have the privilege of exploring intriguing attractions, such as the Roman Museum in Seebruck and the Horse Museum in Arlaching. A scenic boat ride will transport you to both the Herreninsel (Men's Island) and the Fraueninsel (Women's Island) before you pedal your way to the Simsee, known for its unspoiled reed-covered areas. For those with a penchant for panoramic views, an ascent via cable car to the Kampenwand is an enticing option.

This based in one hotel tour kicks off in Prien am Chiemsee or Pelham am See. Your journey begins with an exploration of the Eggstätt Lakes Plateau, with the option of a visit to Amerang. The following day, your route encompasses the picturesque Lake Chiemsee. Another highlight is a boat trip (without your bike) to the Herren- and Fraueninsel (Men's and Women's Islands). Afterward, you'll follow the Achental cycle route and traverse the Rottauer Filze marshland. On the subsequent day, your itinerary includes visits to the Simsee and Rosenheim. A delightful boat excursion to Seebruck awaits, followed by a bike tour along the Alz river. Finally, you'll cap off your adventure by exploring the scenic hills of the Chiemgau region on your way to Aschau and Bernau.

  • Eggstätt Lakes Plateau: In Bavaria's oldest nature reserve, 17 lakes and a paradisiacal atmosphere await you.
  • Herreninsel: You can visit Neue Schloss Herrenchiemsee, also known as Herrenwörth Palace. It was built by the Fairy Tale King Ludwig II, modeled after the Palace of Versailles.
  • Fraueninsel: You'll find a monastery of German-speaking nuns on the island. Furthermore, you can appreciate creative artworks at the island's pottery and leisurely wander through its romantic gardens. Your culinary cravings can be satisfied at the fish smokehouse. 
  • Rosenheim: In this picturesque town, cozy beer gardens invite you to relax. A walk through the historic city center is also rewarding. 

This cycling tour is of moderate difficulty, with predominantly easy-to-navigate routes and only a few hilly sections. You'll primarily follow cycling paths, rural roads, or quieter side streets, though there may be occasional challenges posed by busier roads. The longer segments on well-kept natural paths are particularly enjoyable.
