A wonderful cycling holiday that links the cities of Munich and Salzburg with a spectacular ride through some of Bavaria’s most awe-inspiring scenery. Spend a night in the exciting city of Munich before riding into a world of charming villages, clear alpine lakes, rolling hills and soaring mountains. The charming, historic city of Salzburg is the perfect finale.
Munich is the starting point for this fascinating journey through Bavaria. Drink in the atmosphere as well as a frothy stein of beer at one of many splendid beer gardens. If art and museums are your thing then head for the city’s “Kunstareal”. This art quarter houses a number of galleries and museums with high quality collections to peruse at your leisure.
Your cycle route leads you south out of the city into the green countryside of Bavaria. Small rivers and streams will lead you through forests to clear alpine lakes and the alps create a stunning backdrop to your ride.
Highlights of the route include the charming market town of Bad Tölz, the scenic perfection of Lake Schliersee and idyllic Bavarian villages such as Inzell and Bad Feilnbach.
Finally you enter the Baroque city of Salzburg in Austria – birthplace of the world-renowned composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and a beautiful setting to celebrate your achievement.
This is a leisurely tour with a few hilly sections. Hills occur most particularly between Bad Tölz and Bad Feilenbach, where there will be some climbs to contend with but nothing too steep. The route follows bicycle paths, service roads and minor roads with a couple of unavoidable, short sections on busy roads.
