Self-guided Cycling Tour from Munich to Salzburg

River Isar, Mozart, mountains and lakes

Even though there is this new connection between Munich and Salzburg, you might not be able to cycle from the Oktoberfest to the Salzburg Festival, since both events take place during different times of the year. However, the cities also have a lot of other things to offer; just like the countryside with its many lakes between the cities. Everyone knows the names of the famous Bavarian lakes, but only you will have the pleasure of discovering them by bike. Get to know the history and the stories about the deep blue lakes and the high mountains, about Bavaria and Salzburg, about traditions and the typical cuisine. Enjoy magnificent panoramic views while cycling along the lakes – you will be enchanted by both, the landscape and the culture.

Tour character: Level 3

Holiday cyclist: In general, this is a rather easy, partly hilly tour. Especially the stages from Bad Tölz to Bad Feilenbach, some climbs have to be cycled. You will find yourself partly on bicycle paths, and mostly on service roads and minor roads. Only some short sections have to be cycled on roads with more traffic

  • Day 1

    Arrival in Munich

    Personal tour information and bike fitting. The capital city of the Free State of Bavaria invites you to stay in one of its many beer gardens and get into the mood for the bike tour by drinking a “Radlermaß” (a glass of beer and lemonade).

  • Day 2

    Munich – Bad Tölz approx. 60km

    The Isar cycle path will lead you through green forests, via Wolfratshausen and Geretsried, to Bad Tölz. The town, located 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. The Tölzer Market Street invites you to learn more about the famous television series “Der Bulle von Tölz”.

  • Day 3

    Bad Tölz – Lake Schliersee approx. 35km

    Today, you will cycle through the scenic landscape of Lake Tegernsee, over gently rolling hills, to Lake Tegernsee. In Gmund you will be able to enjoy a magnificent panoramic view of the lake. We recommend taking a boat trip or going for a swim! Later, you will continue on the Bodensee-Königssee bike path to Lake Schliersee.

  • Day 4

    Lake Schliersee - Bad Feilnbach approx. 35/50km

    First, you will cycle directly along the lake shore and on slightly hilly roads to Bad Feilnbach. Because of the mild climate and more than 30,000 fruit trees, the moor spa area is also called the “Bavarian Merano”. And today’s destination is a colourfully decorated town too.

  • Day 5

    Bad Feilnbach – Lake Chiemsee approx. 30/45km

    You will ride your bike through the largest peat mining area of Bavaria, the Kollerfilze and soon you will reach Neubeuern. All over the town, you will see two crossed ship hooks, the emblem of Neubeuern and a sign of the shipbuilding industry, which once was the residents’ main source of income. Then, you will cycle via Frasdorf at the foot of the Chiemgau Mountains to Lake Chiemsee. Today’s destination is located on the southern lakeshore of the “Bavarian sea”. We recommend taking a boat trip to the islands Herrenchiemsee and Frauenchiemsee.

  • Day 6

    Lake Chiemsee – Inzell approx. 50km

    The mountains are getting higher and higher but the bike path stays almost flat. You will cycle through the “Bergener Moos” on the foot of Mount Hochfelln (1,674 metres), via Bad Adelholzen (healing spring), to Siegsdorf (natural history museum). From there, you will continue your journey along the river Rote Traun to the idyllic town of Inzell. The famous Lüftlmalerei paintings on the beautifully decorated town houses are typical for the climatic health resort.

  • Day 7

    Inzell – Salzburg approx. 55km

    Today’s stage will take you on narrow paths between the mountains, along the German Alpine Road via Schneitzlreuth and along the river Saalach to Bad Reichenhall (saline building, cathedral St. Zeno, spa park). On your way back, you will cycle across the border between Bavaria and Austria to Salzburg.

  • Day 8
