Lake Chiemsee - Lake Königssee

Cosy atmosphere in Upper Bavaria!

In the land of ‘Maibaume’ (similar to a maypole) and 1000 beers, cycling is a top priority. Do you know the beautiful lake landscape in Bavaria? No? Then discover the blue beauties on the Eurobike tour from Chiemsee to Königssee. Immerse yourself in historical anecdotes, Bavarian customs and special natural scenery.

Passing historic sights and idyllic landscapes you cycle from the Chiemsee towards the Königssee. As you cycle you have enough time to take in the natural landscape. And don’t forget to enjoy the culinary delights during breaks.

Details about the cycle tour from Chiemsee to Königssee

The cycle tour starts at the Chiemsee, the largest lake in Bavaria. A first walk to the lakeside gives the holiday a relaxing start. The first three days focus on exploring this natural blue beauty. You cycle about 60 kilometres comfortably on the circular path on the shores of the Chiemsee. From bustling lakeside villages to untouched bays, you’ll see it all!

Tip: Dare to take a dip in the lake during the extensive breaks. You will find the refreshment does you good! Those who prefer cool drinks to splashing, will also be happy! On the shore you will discover numerous shady beer gardens, which invite you in to sit back and enjoy.

From the ‘Bavarian Sea’ you continue on the bike saddle over Inzell and Bad Reichenhall to Berchtesgaden in the next three stages. You pedal hard, because the route runs between the mountains along the Saalach river. Once in Berchtesgaden, enjoy the lake and mountain landscape and the traditional village.

The highlights of the cycle tour at a glance

  • Chiemsee islands: The diverse lake has some treasures to offer. Do you know the islands of the Bavarian Sea? The Eurobike team recommends a boat trip to the Herreninsel and and Fraueninsel. Picturesque fishing villages, artists’ colonies and the magnificent palace of King Ludwig II await you.
  • Bad Reichenhall: The spa town of Bad Reichenhall lies in the midst of the Bavarian Alps and impresses with its special flair. Wellbeing, culture and hospitality are of prime importance, be it a spa day or a ride on the Predigstuhl, the oldest cable car in the world. Need a holiday souvenir? The Reichenhall brand salt is the perfect as a small souvenir.

Useful information about the bike tour in beautiful Bavaria

The tour is considered easy. Short stages and few gradients ensure that enjoyment is the focus. For some sections you need slightly more muscle power on the slightly hilly bike paths. There is always time to recover though!

Itinerary

In the evening welcome briefing and rental bike fitting. We recommend a first stroll along the lake.

Hotel (example): Jägerhof Bernau

The Chiemsee circular path is beautifully designed. It leads you to secluded swimming bays as well as to densely populated lakeside resorts. Whilst cycling comfortably along the lakeside, marvel at the stunning views onto the lake. For extensive breaks along the way you come acorss many shady beergardens along the lakeside. You also have the option of shortening part of the daily tours by a special bike-bus (optional).

There are countless possibilities to spend an enjoyable day at the ‚Bavarian Sea’. For example take a boat ride to the islands ‚Herrenchiemsee’ (King Ludwig palace) and ‚Frauenchiemsee’. Naturally there are numerous bathing spots for a relaxing day on the lakeside. 

Gradually the mountains become higher and higher. The terrain of the cycling route however stays nearly flat. Through the ‚Bergener moor’ at the foot of the Chiemgauer local mountain, called ‚Hochfelln’ (1674m), the path leads you via Bad Adelholzen with its mineral spring to Siegsdorf. From there along the river red Traun onwards into the idyllic Inzell. Special artwork, called ‚Lüftlmalerei’ on the flower-embellished houses are typical for this climatic health-resort.

Hotel (example): Alpinhotel Inzeller

The route of the German Alpine road snakes tightly between mountains via Schneitzlreuth along the river  Saalach to Bad Reichenhall. Since 1890 Bad Reichenhall is an approved health resort and ‚spa town’. The saline Bad Reichenhall markets its branded salt as ‚Reichenhaller Markensalz’ in all of Germany and beyond.  Opportunity for a ‚wellness day’ or for a ride up to the 1600m high ‚Predigtstuhl’ with the world’s oldest and legendary cable car.

Hotel (example): Wyndham Grand Axelmannstein

Short tour to Berchtesgaden. Opporturnity for a visit to the salt mine Obersalzberg as well as the  Kehlstein house. Alternatively cycle a few more kilometres to Lake Königssee with the option of a boat ride on this well-known lake and a visit of the monastery Bartholomä, situated at the foot of the phenomenal  Watzmann massif.

Hotel (example): Alpina Ros Demming

Tour character

Overall an easy tour with short daily stages and only a few ascents. The terrain is only in parts slighly hilly. Tremendous route on cycle and rural paths as well as side roads. Only very short sections on roads with moderate traffic.

Schöne Tour
Alles sehr gut nur die Beschilderung war teilweise verblichen und schwer zu finden.

Vielen lieben Dank für Ihre freundliche Bewertung und Ihre Anregungen, Herr Hasselhorn. Wir versuchen natürlich stets die E-Pfeile so aktuell wie möglich zu halten, leider fallen fehlende Pfeile dann aber unseren Gästen zuerst auf. Wir sind für solche Tipps dann immer sehr dankbar. Oft werden die Pfeile überklebt oder sie verbleichen einfach in der Sonne etwas.

Beautiful scenery
Beautiful scenery, good bike trails, and some challenging hills that make you feel good at the end. With the Eurobike app, and the supplied gpx route, there was no need to consult the guide map. We depended entirely on the Eurobike navigation guidance on our cell phones which made navigation a breeze. Great pre-travel service by Ms. Sabine Steinleitner. We highly recommend this trip.

Fabulous! The route was fun and beautiful, the hotels (and the service at the hotels) excellent, the bikes were very good. We loved it.
The Chiemsee is beautiful with easy cycling through lovely towns around the lake, with many opportunities to swim in the lake. “Willy,” the owner of the Hotel Garni Jagerhof, is a delightful, helpful man who always takes extra steps to enhance the stay of his guests. The rides to Inzell, Bad Reichenhall, and Berchtesgaden are stunningly beautiful. (Only the ride downhill on the road through the canyon to Bad Reichenhall is on a busy road, but the canyon is too steep for a separate bike path.) The Alpininzell Hotel was very nice. Berchestesgaden is a lovely place to end the trip and the Hotel Bavaria is warm and inviting, with a open snack bar included. We really felt comfortable on the bikes provided, which were very well maintained and worked perfectly. Going up gravelly hills, knobby wheels would have been better as the wheels slipped in the gravel—but there were not many hills gravelly hills.
