  • Day 1

    Arrival at Ambach/Bernried on Lake Starnberg

    Your first walk along Lake Starnberg or even a refreshing swim already awaits today.

  • Day 2

    Ambach/Bernried – Murnau on Lake Staffelsee approx. 30 km

    Initially the cycle path leads you to the southern shores of Lake Starnberg until Seeshaupt. You cycle along marvellous paths through original Bavarian villages, past the Osterseen lakes and Lake Riegsee until you reach Murnau on Lake Staffelsee.

  • Day 3

    Murnau – Garmisch Partenkirchen approx. 40 km

    You start the tour by cycling through the nature reserve ‚Murnauer Moos’ (biggest moor area in Central Europe). Onwards through unspoilt nature following the river Loisach to Garmisch Partenkirchen. This stage is deliberately kept short, which means you have time for a ride up by the ‚Zugspitzbahn’-railway to a height of 2962 metres (autonomously). From there you have a fantastic view over the Alps.

  • Day 4

    Garmisch Partenkirchen – Mittenwald – Wallgau approx. 45 km

    You take a train ride to Scharnitz and cover 300 metres in altitude. From there you continue slightly uphill through wild-romantic gorges and lush alpine pastures to the Isar river source. Back through the sunny high-altitude valley with marvellous panoramic views onto the Karwendel and the Wetterstein mountain ranges via Mittenwald to Wallgau – a village where Bavarian traditions are still alive today.

  • Day 5

    Wallgau – Bad Tolz approx. 50 km

    Past the ‚Isarwinkel’, following the crystal clear, turquoise-blue water to the impressive lake Sylvensteinsee and via Lenggries through atmospheric scenery to Bad Tolz. This village is situated at the intersection point of two trading routes – the river Isar and the old salt route from Reichenhall into the Allgau region – it quickly developed into a booming handling spot. The ornate houses are still testimony to this area.

  • Day 6

    Bad Tolz – Lake Tegernsee – Bad Tolz approx. 45 km

    Through the charming scenery around Lake Tegernsee until Gmund on Lake Tegernsee with a fabulous lake panorama. Then you return along the Gaissbach valley to Bad Tolz. Follow the traces of the well-known TV-series ‚Der Bulle von Tolz’ along the high road of Bad Tolz.

  • Day 7

    Bad Tolz – Ambach/Bernried approx. 30 km

    For the finale, another casual stage via soft rolling hills and through lush meadows back to the starting point of this round trip. If you have not done it already, we recommend a swim in the crystal clear waters of Lake Starnberg as a final highlight of this tour.

  • Day 8

    Departure or extension of your stay
