Munich - Salzburg

River Isar, Mozart, mountains & lakes.

Beer, mountains and Mozart, this is the theme of the tour from Munich to Salzburg. Glittering lake landscapes and culinary highlights frame the tour. Each city has its own charm and history. One thing they both have in common is the love of festivities. Munich presents its well-known Oktoberfest in Autumn and the city of Mozart shines in the summer with the world-famous ‘Festspiele’.

Bavarian and Salzburg customs, regional delicacies and fantastic natural scenery await you on the bike saddle between Munich and the festival city.

Details about the cycle tour from Munich to Salzburg

For a cool jug of ‘Radler’ to fuel the cycle ride, you can’t go wrong in Munich. The Bavarian capital impresses not only with its beer culture, but also with its unmistakable cityscape. Century-old buildings and historic museums characterise the city of culture. The Marienplatz with the town hall, English Garden, Hofbräuhaus and the Viktualienmarkt show the many faces of Munich.

On day two of four you cycle from Munich via Bad Tölz and the Schliersee to Bad Feilnbach. On the Isar cycle path, enjoyment in the saddle is forefront. Lovely forests, marvellous lake panoramas and charming towns line the routes. Bad Feilnbach is colourfully decorated. Over 30,000 fruit trees adorn the place and because of its climate, it is also called the ‘Bavarian Merano’.

Continue the cycle tour from Chiemsee to Inzell. Along the red Traun and between the higher and higher mountains you come closer and closer to the gates of Salzburg. Once in the city of Mozart you can put the wheels down. Now, for a grand finale, you can focus on indulgence!

Highlights of the cycle tour at a glance

  • Schliersee: The inspiring blue beauty invites you to relax. No matter whether it’s right on the shore, in one of the surrounding restaurants or seeing the sights, the Schliersee offers plenty of space to enjoy yourself.
  • The city of Mozart: Pure happiness comes on arrival in Salzburg. You stroll through the lovely old town with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Hearty delicacies and culinary delights will make your heart beat faster. Stroll through the charming alleyways of the festival city and end your cycle tour in style.

Useful information about the tour

For the most part, the route runs on flat terrain. But you will also build up a sweat! During the stage from Bad Tölz to Bad Feilnbach, the hills require a bit of muscle. After the effort, a well-deserved break is guaranteed!

Itinerary

Personal tour information and bike fitting. The capital city of the Free State of Bavaria invites you to stay in one of its many beer gardens and get into the mood for the bike tour by drinking a “Radlermaß” (a glass of beer and lemonade).

Hotel (example):Sheraton Westpark

The Isar cycle path will lead you through green forests, via Wolfratshausen and Geretsried, to Bad Tölz. The town, located 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. The Tölzer Market Street invites you to learn more about the famous television series “Der Bulle von Tölz”.

Hotel (example) Hotel am Wald

Today, you will cycle through the scenic landscape of Lake Tegernsee, over gently rolling hills, to Lake Tegernsee. In Gmund you will be able to enjoy a magnificent panoramic view of the lake. We recommend taking a boat trip or going for a swim! Later, you will continue on the Bodensee-Königssee bike path to Lake Schliersee.

Hotel (example) Terofal

First, you will cycle directly along the lake shore and on slightly hilly roads to Bad Feilnbach. Because of the mild climate and more than 30,000 fruit trees, the moor spa area is also called the “Bavarian Merano”. And today’s destination is a colourfully decorated town too.

Hotel (example) Kistlerwirt

You will ride your bike through the largest peat mining area of Bavaria, the Kollerfilze and soon you will reach Neubeuern. All over the town, you will see two crossed ship hooks, the emblem of Neubeuern and a sign of the shipbuilding industry, which once was the residents’ main source of income.  Then, you will cycle via Frasdorf at the foot of the Chiemgau Mountains to Lake Chiemsee. Today’s destination is located on the southern lakeshore of the “Bavarian sea”. We recommend taking a boat trip to the islands Herrenchiemsee and Frauenchiemsee.

Hotel (example) Alter Wirt

The mountains are getting higher and higher but the bike path stays almost flat. You will cycle through the “Bergener Moos” on the foot of Mount Hochfelln (1,674 metres), via Bad Adelholzen (healing spring), to Siegsdorf (natural history museum). From there, you will continue your journey along the river Rote Traun to the idyllic town of Inzell. The famous Lüftlmalerei paintings on the beautifully decorated town houses are typical for the climatic health resort.

Hotel (example) Alpinhotel INzeller

Today’s stage will take you on narrow paths between the mountains, along the German Alpine Road via Schneitzlreuth and along the river Saalach to Bad Reichenhall (saline building, cathedral St. Zeno, spa park). On your way back, you will cycle across the border between Bavaria and Austria to Salzburg.

Hotel (example) Achat Plaza zum Hirsch

Tour character

In general, this is a rather easy, partly hilly tour. Especially the stages from Bad Tölz to Bad Feilenbach, some climbs have to be cycled. You will find yourself partly on bicycle paths, and mostly on service roads and minor roads. Only some short sections have to be cycled on roads with more traffic.

Sehr schöne Radtour
Sehr gut organisierte Radtour. Unser Gepäck war immer vor uns im nächsten Hotel, was bei Regenwetter natürlich sehr von Vorteil war.
