On this trip you will cycle through the beautiful scenery in southern Bavaria, always accompanied by a breathtaking view of the Alps.

You will use well-known bike paths and get a chance to admire famous royal palaces, illustrious churches, historical squares, and interesting museums, as well as many lesser-known attractions of the region. Thus, this tour not only offers you the charm of pure nature, but also the highest Bavarian culture.
