The Ammer-Amper cycle path leads you across the beautiful Bavarian Alpine foothills. Starting in the Graswang Valley near Oberammergau, the Ammer river rises towards the Alps and flows through the Pfaffenwinkel, a region home to many cultural monuments. You will find yourself surrounded by gentle hills and fragrant forests as you follow the Ammer river until it flows into Amersee lake.

From south to north, the cycle path follows the western shore of the river before reaching the Amersee. From here, the path runs along the Amper river. Quiet meadows and beautiful nature hug this river as it gently winds through the countryside. It also passes through exciting cities such as Fürstenfeldbruck, Dachau, and Freising.

In this Collection, we present you the 134 miles (216 kilometers) of the Ammer-Amper cycle path divided into five routes of varying lengths. All of the stages have various accommodation options. The route takes you from Oberammergau to Moosburg an der Isar which are both easily accessible by train. As you follow the river, the path stays relatively flat: there are only a few short hilly stretches. In addition, you mostly ride on paved bike paths or small side roads, making the Collection suitable for families.

The ADFC rates the Ammer-Amper-Radweg as a quality bike route with 4 stars.
