Munich's Surrounding Lakes

On Lake Ammer, Lake Starnberger See and Lake Kochelsee.

You will come across famous names during this cycle tour. On television you hear a lot about celebrities on Lake Starnberger See, about one of Bavaria’s most stunning beergardens at Andechs monastery, about the ‚Blaue Reiter’-group, who paved the way for modern art and about the popular German TV series ‚der Bulle von Tölz’. Experience stories and the history about and behind it at first hand, while you move on your cycle tour from one glittering lake to the next. Without doubt you will have your own little anecdote ready to tell about this phenomenal region...

Itinerary

Welcome briefing and bike fitting. Bavaria’s state capital has countless sights in store for all visitors (English Gardens, town hall, Hofbräuhaus,…).

Hotel (example)

Hotel Sheraton Westpark

From Munich, first you cycle through the Forstenrieder park. A former hunting ground of the Wittelsbacher and with an area of 2100 hectars, it is a paradise for nature enthusiasts. Via Gauting along the ‚Königlich-Bayerischen’- cycle path on a slightly hilly terrain towards lake Ammer. Before that however you come across the regal Andechs monastery. Then a well-earned break, a so-called ‚Brotzeit’ with a ‚Maß’ (1 litre) beer (inclusive) in a shady beer garden before you are back on your bike, enjoying a roaring descent towards the lakeside. Your accommodation will either be in Herrsching or Dießen.

Hotel (example)

Hotel Seefelder Hof

Today you start with a relaxing boat trip from Herrsching to Dießen (season from 01.05. until 21.09.). By bike, you continue towards along the river Ammer to Weilheim in ‘Pfaffenwinkel’. This name is due to the numerous monasteries and 159 churches in this area. Via lush meadows and through deep green forests, the route takes you all the way to the banks of lake Starnberger See. Journey by boat from Herrsching to Dießen (season 01/05 till 21/09) Your accommodations are either in Bernried or Ambach.

Hotel (example)

Landhotel Huber am See

Today you cycle all the way around possibly the best-known lake in Bavaria. The cycle path takes you from one lakeside resort to the next, past villas of Bavarian celebrities, quaint shady beer gardens and picturesque swimming bays.

Straight away you cycle past the idyllic lakes ’Osterseen’. They form a chain of 19 little lakes and are certainly always pleasant to swim in. Then through unspoilt Bavarian villages and along lake Riegsee and from there it is not far to Murnau with its beautiful town square. After that you cycle past the ’Murnauer Moos’ and the well-known stud farm Schwaiganger until you see lake Kochel in the distance. We especially recommend visiting the amazing Franz Marc museum!

Hotel (example)

Alpenhof Postillion

This is a short tour with tons of time left over to enjoy and relax. Already after a few cycling kilometres through the Kocheler Moos, the shady beer garden of the Benediktbeuern monastery invites you for a first break. Once you have reached today’s destination, Bad Tölz, there is a lot to see! Two ancient trading routes brought all the wealth to this town, of which the elaborately decorated houses in the market road are still living testimony. If you feel more like relaxing, then you have the perfect spot in the thermal waters of the spa ‚Alpamare’ at your disposal.

Hotel (example)

Hotel Kolberbräu / Kolbergarten

The Isar cycle path leads you via Geretsried and Wolfratshausen to Grünwald. There are still a few little ascents to overcome before you reach the state capital Munich, where countless tourist attractions are waiting to be explored.

Hotel (example)

Hotel Sheraton Westpark

Tour character

Overall easy terrain. There are a few short ascents which can also easily be tackled by pushing the bike uphill. You cycle on marvellous cycle paths and little side roads, only on short sections on main roads. The route is mainly asphalted, a few longer sections are on well-maintained dirt or gravel roads.

Empfehlenswerte Rundreise, aber "Nicht-E-Biker" sollten Kondition mitbringen
Fahrt durch eine abwechslungsreiche Landschaft mit vielen schönen Blicken auf die großen Seen, aber auch Fahrten durch hügeliges Alpenvorland Was könnte (noch) besser sein? Wunsch nach Reiseunterlagen mit mehr Infos zu Geographie, Kultur, Geschichte an der Fahrstrecke, so wie bei den käuflich zu erwerbenden bikeline-Führern. Wir hätten die Tour doch eher in die Kategorie"Urlaubsradler" eingeordnet, also auch "Tagesetappen mit welligem Profil".

insgesamt eine Hintergrundorganisation durch Eurobike für einen erlebnisreichen Radurlaub
Einen besonderen Tag erlebten wir in Kochel am See mit der Besichtigung des Franz Marc Museums. Ich würde empfehlen, dieses wunderbare Museum mit in die Tourenbeschreibung aufzunehmen. Vielleicht haben Sie das auch schon gemacht und ich habe es nur übersehen, auch möglich. Die Tourenplanung hatte uns für den Besuch Zeit gelassen, was sehr passend war. An jenem heißen Tag war das kalte Wasser des Kochelsees beim Baden sehr erfrischend. Insgesamt war die Route abwechslungsreich. Die Streckenführung des ersten Tages war erst ab Gauting einigermaßen erfreulich und steigerte sich dann eindeutig ab Andechs. Sehr erheiternd war die Einkehr in Andechs mit späterer Schifffahrt über den Ammersee! Tolle Idee mit den Gutscheinen!
