Details of the leisurely cycle tour with Eurobike

Take in the vibrancy of city life as soon as you arrive in Munich, because there is plenty to see and discover. The first stop is the elegant Lake Starnberg, which has always been a popular holiday destination for the rich and famous - after all, Empress Sissi also came from Possenhofen.

With Murnau, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Mittenwald, Wallgau and Bad Tölz, you will pass Bavarian gems, where one is more charming and picturesque than the last. Get to know the locals and their traditions and don't miss the excellent cuisine. On day 5, a bike-free day awaits you in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. More known for winter sports, the town is also a highlight in summer. Speaking of highlights, how about a ride up to the Zugspitze - at 2,962 metres, wonderful views await. Via a detour to Lake Tegernsee, the tour finally returns to Munich.

Highlights of the 10-day cycling tour "Munich Lakes"

  • The English Garden in Munich invites you to linger. Sun worshippers at the Schwabinger Bach, surfers at the Eisbachwelle, sportsmen and musicians on every corner - the green part of Munich spreads a great atmosphere.
  • Plenty of swimming opportunities in the lakes: Splash! A skilful jump and the refreshment is perfect. Whether Tegernsee, Riegsee or Osterseen - hardly any region offers as many wonderful bathing spots as the Munich area.
  • Magnificent views of the Zugspitze: A constant companion, it will always catch your eye - it has the size to do so! From numerous points on the tour you can enjoy wonderful views of Germany's highest mountain in the Wetterstein range.
  • Bavarian customs in Bad Tölz: Festivals, markets and events characterise the living traditions of the town, above all the Leonhardi ride out, which is famous far beyond the borders. Take a look at the typical traditional costume and try the traditional delicacies, because all this is part of the customs.

Useful information about the tour through the Munich Lake District.

You cycle between 30 and 60 km on the different days of the tour. A rest day is planned at the halfway point, during which you can do as you please. A complementary train ride and a Weißwurst breakfast are included during the tour.

Itinerary

The capital city of Bavaria is awaiting you and invites you to visit its many attractions (English Garden, Town Hall, Hofbräuhaus,…)

Hotel (example): NYX Hotel Munich

From Munich, the tour starts with a bike ride through Forstenrieder Park to Lake Starnberg. From Starnberg, you will continue your tour on the bike path next to the lake to Ambach or even further to Bernried. Enjoy some time at the lake with its crystal clear waters and wonderful views of the surrounding mountains.

Hotel (example) Landhotel Huber am See

Today, you will cycle on scenic trails through unspoilt Bavarian villages, past the Osterseen lakes and Lake Riegsee to Murnau am Staffelsee. On the way, there are many lakes which invite you to swim. In Murnau not only the Münterhaus is worth a visit. The connection between art and music in this town has always characterized the people and architecture.

Hotel (example): Angerbräu

First, you will cycle through the nature reserve called Murnauer Moos (largest swamp area in Central Europe). Later, you will continue your tour through unspoilt nature following the river Loisach to Garmisch Partenkirchen. Take some time and stroll through the town centre with its world famous Ludwig Street (Ludwigstraße).

Hotel (example): Vier Jahreszeiten

Today you can take a ride on the cog railway up Germany’s highest mountain, the Zugspitze. You are to organise this yourself if you want to do so.

You will take the train to Scharnitz to bridge an altitude of 300 metres. From there, you will cycle uphill through wildly romantic gorges and lush meadows to the spring of the river Isar. Afterwards, you will cycle back through a sunny valley where you will have a marvellous panoramic view of the mountains of Karwendel and Wettersteingebirge, passing Mittenwald and finally arriving in Wallgau – a place where the Bavarian tradition is still a part of everyday life.

Hotel (example): Gasthof Post

Passing the Isarwinkel, you will follow the crystal-clear, turquoise waters of the impressive Lake Sylvenstein. Cycling through charming landscapes, you will pass Lenggries and finally arrive in Bad Tölz. Bad Tölz is situated at the crossroads of two trade routes - the river Isar and the old salt route from Reichenhall to Allgäu - quickly became a thriving trading centre. The ornate mansions testify the golden age.

Hotel (example): Kolberbräu

You will cycle through the scenic Tegernsee countryside to Gmund at Lake Tegernsee where you will have a beautiful panoramic view of the lake. Following the Gaißbach valley, you will come back to Bad Tölz. The thermal waters of the famous spa “Alpamare” will help you to refresh your tired muscles. The Tölzer Market Street invites you to learn more about the famous television series “Der Bulle von Tölz”.

The Isar bike path leads you from Bad Tölz, via Geretsriedand then to Grünwald. After a few short climbs you will arrive back in Bavaria’s state capital Munich, where you can explore its countless sights and attractions.

Hotel (example): NYX Hotel Munich

Tour character

Overall, this is a rather easy tour. A few short climbs can be conquered easily by pushing the bike. You will cycle on beautiful bike ways and minor roads. Main roads will only be used for short distances. The route is mostly paved; some longer passages are on natural roads which are in good condition.

Blau-weißes Land
Es war insgesamt eine sehr schöne, abwechslungsreiche Reise bei (fast immer) bestem Wetter. Wir waren ganz froh, daß wir unsere eBikes mitgenommen haben, denn einige Strecken waren so schon entspannter zu fahren. Bahnfahrt Garmisch-Scharnitz war aufgrund von Streckensperrungen nicht möglich. Die Busse vom Schienenersatzverkehr nehmen keine Räder mit. Wir sind also die Strecke geradelt, was auch sehr schön war. Die Wegbeschaffenheit zur Isarquelle wurde in den Unterlagen als sehr schlecht beschrieben, was wir so nicht bestätigen können. Bis zu den Quellen lässt es sich gut radeln. Der Weg wird erst danach sehr steinig - auf dem Weg zur Almhütte. Dagegen fanden wir den Isarradweg zurück nach München (nach Grünwald, km 44,2) im ersten Teil sehr ruppig und schwer befahrbar ( die Strecke durch den Wald). Da taten uns die Räder leid…. Eine kleine Information vom Gasthof Jäger von Fall: Weißwurstfrühstück gibt es bis 14 Uhr ( nicht nur bis 12 Uhr). Am Fahrtag Bad Tölz - Tegernsee sind wir nicht nur nach Gmund gefahren, sondern haben den See einmal umrundet, was gut zu schaffen ist und besonders auf der Bad Wiesseer Seite sehr schön ist. Eine kleine Anfrage: Wir konnten die ÖBB- Tickets Garmisch-Scharnitz ja nicht nutzen. Gibt es da die Möglichkeit einer Rückerstattung bzw. Gutschrift für unsere nächste Tour mit Eurobike ? Es würde uns freuen….

Vielen Dank für das schöne und ausführliche Feedback zu unserer Tour in München. Vielen Dank auch für die Informationen bezüglich der Wegbeschaffenheit und des Weißwurstfrühstückes. Wir radeln unsere Touren im Frühjahr zwar immer ab, aber vorallem die Beschaffenheit der Wege kann sich immer mal wieder ändern (Unwetter, Starkregen) Natürlich werden wir Ihnen die nichtgenutzten Bahntickets rückerstattten.

Schöne Hügel, leider recht hügelig
Entlang der Autobahn aus München raus war es eher so mittel, aber danach konnte man die Landschaft schon genießen. Einmal ganz eng am Starnberger See entlang, die Alpen fast immer im Blick. Auf den höchsten Berg - da blieb das Fahrrad natürlich im Tal. Lange an der wilden Isar entlang und noch ein paar Tage in Münchens Biergärten. Passt scho. Als "Selbstfahrer" ohne Motorkraft hätten wir schon gern weniger Anstiege gesehen, aber so sieht es halt in Bayern aus. Vielleicht nächstes Mal Ostfriesland ...

Vielen Dank für das schöne Feedback! Die Aufahrten aus großen Städten sind leider meistens nicht sehr attraktiv. Schön, dass ihnen die Tour in Bayern aber ansonsten so gut gefallen hat! Gerne können wir ihnen für ihre nächste Reise auch eine Tour in Ostfriesland anbieten ;)

Tolles Naturerlebnis
Die Strecken verliefen überwiegend abseits der Straße, durch Wald, Felder und an wunderschönen Seen entlang. Die Hotels waren sehr gut.

Sportliche Variante der Münchner Seenrunde
Wir radelten im Spätsommer. Eine landschaftlich sehr vielfältige (Berge, Seen, Flüsse, ...), aber fordernde Tour mit schönen Streckenetappen. Perfekt für einen sportlichen Urlaub!

Bayern auf dem Fahrrad entdecken
Auf dieser Tour kann man wirklich tolle Eindrücke von Bayern gewinnen. Die schönen Seen, die idyllischen kleinen Dörfer und natürlich jede Menge gemütliche Biergärten. Man sollte ein gewisse Grundkondition haben, vorallem wenn man zur Isarquelle radeln möchte. Bei schönen Wetter ein absolutes Muss! Ich kann die Tour nur weiterempfehlen.
