Traverse the Bavarian Alpine Foothills
Get to know the best of Bavaria's countryside on your daily rides. You'll be particularly impressed by what the Ammergau Alps have to offer. It is, after all, important to refuel while biking, and the local cuisine is an important highlight.
The popular bike route through the Alps is graced with countless cultural sights. Along the route, you will climb 5,359 meters (17,582 ft.). The tour starts in the town of Lindau on Lake Constance. From there, the route moves into the hilly Allgäu and then on to the spa town of Oberstaufen -undulating alongside picturesque lakes, blooming alpine meadows, and taking in cultural attractions such as the world-famous Wieskirche church (in the Pfaffenwinkel region).
A detour to the artist community of Murnau is a must-see on the Lake Constance-Königsee Bike Route. From here, you will make your way to Bad Tölz and Gmund on the Tegernsee lake and on to Aschau in the Chiemgau region to see the famous Herreninsel island. Then, it is only a few more day rides to Berchtesgaden, where the view across the crystal clear, blue Königsee will make it all worth it.
