Itinerary

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

Hotel (example)

Hotel Sheraton Westpark

From Munich, the tour starts with a bike ride through Forstenrieder Park to Lake Starnberg. Then you will cycle on the lakeside road to Ambach or Bernried.

Hotel (example)

Landhotel Huber am See

You will continue on wonderful ways through rustic Bavarian towns, past the Osterseen lakes and Lake Riegsee to Murnau am Staffelsee.

Hotel (example)

Hotel Griesbräu

First, you will cycle through the natural reserve called Murnauer Moos (largest swamp area of Central Europe). Later, you will continue your tour through unspoiled nature following the River Loisach to Garmisch-Partenkirchen. The stage is intentionally brief. Therefore, there is still enough time for an individual trip with the Zugspitzbahn, a mountain railway. At an altitude of 2962 meters, you will have a wonderful view of the Alps.

Hotel (example)

Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten

You will take the train to Scharnitz to bridge an altitude of 300 meters. 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)

Hotel Gasthof Post Wallgau

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. The location 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)

Hotel Kolberbräu/Kolbergarten

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 valley Gaißbach, 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 way leads you from Bad Tölz over Geretsried and Wolfratshausen directly 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)

Hotel Sheraton Westpark

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.

Es war eine sehr schöne Reise mit guten hotels aber die strecke ist nicht für untrainierte radfahrer oder mit kinder zu empfehlen! Am sonsten war alles sehr gut organisiert und wir werden diese Reise gerne weiter empfehlen.

Alles super
Den Starnberger See muss man gesehen haben. Auch die gesamte Tour, die Organisation inkl. Essen+ Unterkünfte waren super. Ein paar Hinweisschilder sind schon sehr erblasst. Mein Vorschlag evtl. den Tourteilnehmern ein paar Hinweisaufkleber mitzugeben, wir hätten sie dann erneuert.
Sabine Steinleitner
Sabine Steinleitner answered:
Lieber Herr Minten! Vielen Dank für Ihre freundlichen Worte! Es freut mich, dass die Tour bei Ihnen so gut ankam! Und vielen Dank für Ihren Hinweis mit den verblassten E-Pfeilen. Es kann schon mal sein, dass die Sonne die Aufkleber etwas ausbleicht. Wir versuchen sie aber so oft wie möglich zu erneuern. Hoffentlich dürfen wir Sie auch nächstes Jahr wieder zu unseren Gästen zählen!

A great holiday!
This circular tour is beautiful in many different ways - it starts with a short ride in the city, then you are in parkland then you cycle along a big beautiful lake, followed by rolling hilly land - and that's just the first day! For us the most beautiful parts were the Murnau Moos wetlands and the alpine meadows near the Alps. The last half of the trip follows the Isar river, starting at its source in the Austrian Alps and ending in the streets of Munich, This is a beautiful transition - you really get to love the river as it grows. The "E" arrows on the route are extremely helpful but in one or two places they have either fallen off or something else has been put over them. This sometimes made navigation difficult, particularly in Starnberg and Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Apart from that, everything went perfectly. Lastly, thanks very much to Thomas, who was always enthusiastic, informative and helpful.

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.

Ein perfekter Aktivurlaub
Wir haben diese Reise zum ersten Mal gemacht. Es hat alles sehr gut geklappt, von der Fahradübergabe bis zum Gepäcktransport. Die Reise- und Tourunterlagen waren ausgezeichnet. Man sollte sie aber auch vor jeder Etappe ordentlich lesen. Die Hotels waren sehr gut, bis auf Hotel Beer zur Gesundheit, müsste mal überprüft werden hinsichtlich Qualität (etwas enttäuschend nach den vorangegangenen Hotels)! Alles in allem war der Urlaub perfekt für uns Hobbyfahrradfahrer.
