Day-by-Day Cycling Holiday Itinerary


1st day: Arrival in Munich

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).

2nd day: Munich – Lake Starnberg approx. 45-60 k/m

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.

3rd day: Lake Starnberg – Murnau am Staffelsee approx. 35 km

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.

4th day: Murnau – Bad Tölz approx. 50 km

On the fourth day you will pass Lake Kochlsee and Benediktbeuern and cycle through charming landscapes to 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.

5th day: Bad Tölz – Munich approx. 65 km

Departure after breakfast.

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. Individual departure or an additional night in Munich or the surrounding area.
