Lakes of Southern Bavaria

Hotel & Bike 7 nights


Why we love this tour

"We loved the variety of cycling along rivers, lakes, through woods and open fields. A great way to see the Bavarian Alps on a leisurely cycling tour. We recommend spending an extra night in Munich to explore and relax in one of the famous beer gardens."

Tour between the sparkling freshwater lakes of southern Bavaria, cycling with a backdrop of the forested slopes and snow-dusted peaks of the Bavarian Alps. You’ll ride along quiet country roads, scenic lanes and riverside paths – the cycling is mostly undemanding with a few gentle inclines. As you pedal through green forests, marshlands and alpine foothills, you’ll pass lakeside market towns and traditional Bavarian villages.

After following the River Isar through quiet valleys and green gorges, a short train ride will help you gain altitude and the view from Germany’s highest mountain makes a magnificent halfway highlight. The palaces and vibrant streets of Munich are a wonderful place to start and finish, and when you arrive back into the city after six days of cycling, look forward to a local beer.
