Wild rivers, mysterious moors, colourful blooming meadows and an impressive backdrop of jagged mountains – the Ammergau Alps Nature Park is a true idyll on the edge of the Upper Bavarian Alps. With flat cycle paths through the Ammertal valley and challenging MTB routes in the Ammergau Alps, the region is perfect for exploring on two wheels, no matter what kind of bike you prefer. You can even enjoy a ‘bike & hike’ Tour which combines pedalling with a last push to the top of a mountain on foot. In this Collection, we’ve put together nine great adventures in the Ammergau Alps. You’re sure to find the right adventure for you.

Located in the very south of Germany, around 100 kilometres (62 miles) southwest of Munich, the Ammergau Alps are surrounded by other famous holiday destinations such as Garmisch-Partenkirchen and the Zugspitze to the southeast and the fairytale Neuschwanstein castle to the west.

Whether you travel by car or choose to arrive by train, the more sustainable option, the nature park is easy to reach. You can already leave behind the stress of everyday life on the journey there. When you arrive, the enchanting mountains with their varied landscape as well as a special gift await. If you stay more than three nights in the region, you receive a half-day ticket for the Bikepark Oberammergau as a present. Here, you find endless well-kept trails and tunnels. That’s not all that is free-of-charge. You can also use the ‘Königscard’ electronic guest card on regional buses and DB-region trains within the Ammergau Alps, making it even more convenient to leave your car at home.

If our ‘bike & hike’ adventures inspire you to explore even more of the mountains on foot then check out great hikes through the nature park, here: komoot.de/collection/1041393. The Ammergau Alps really is a true paradise, both on foot and on two wheels.

    "Short and sweet" - that describes this hike perfectly. After you've parked your bike (tour to get there by bike: komoot.de/tour/269611061), things get straight to the point. You make your way over a steep path towards the two peaks of Friederspitz and Frieder. The path is mostly steep, but has a very good surface. A sunrise on one of the two peaks is particularly recommended.
