Arrival at Lake Chiemsee
In the evening you have a welcome briefing and rental bike fitting. We recommend a first stroll along the lake.
Around lake Chiemsee approx. 60km
The Chiemsee circular path is beautifully designed. It leads you to secluded swimming bays as well as to densely populated lakeside resorts. Whilst cycling comfortably along the lakeside, marvel at the stunning views across the lake. For extensive breaks along the way you come across many shady beer gardens along the lakeside. You also have the option of shortening part of the daily tours with a special bike-bus (optional).
There are countless possibilities to spend an enjoyable day at the ‚Bavarian Sea’. For example, take a boat ride to the islands ‚Herrenchiemsee’ (King Ludwig palace) and ‚Frauenchiemsee’. Naturally there are numerous bathing spots for a relaxing day on the lakeside.
Chiemsee – Inzell approx. 45km
Gradually the mountains become higher and higher. The terrain of the cycling route however stays nearly flat. Through the ‚Bergener moor’ at the foot of the Chiemgauer local mountain, called ‚Hochfelln’ (1674m), the path leads you via Bad Adelholzen with its mineral spring to Siegsdorf. From there along the river Traun onwards into the idyllic Inzell. Special artwork, called ‚Lüftlmalerei’ on the flower-embellished houses are typical for this climatic health-resort.
Inzell – Bad Reichenhall approx. 30km
The route of the German Alpine road snakes tightly between mountains via Schneitzlreuth along the river Saalach to Bad Reichenhall. Since 1890 Bad Reichenhall has been an approved health resort and ‚spa town’. The saline Bad Reichenhall markets its branded salt as ‚Reichenhaller Markensalz’ in all of Germany and beyond. Opportunity for a ‚wellness day’ or for a ride up to the 1600m high ‚Predigtstuhl’ with the world’s oldest and legendary cable car.
Bad Reichenhall – Berchtesgaden/Lake Königssee approx. 20/30km
Short tour to Berchtesgaden. Opportunity for a visit to the salt mine Obersalzberg as well as the Kehlstein house. Alternatively cycle a few more kilometres to Lake Königssee with the option of a boat ride on this well-known lake and a visit of the Bartholomew monastery, situated at the foot of the phenomenal Watzmann massif.
