In Chiemgau, you ride along well-developed, mostly flat cycle paths through wonderful landscapes and nature. As you cycle, you marvel at unforgettable views of the lofty Alps which rise majestically in the distance. Deep blue lakes glisten in the sun and rivers wind through the spectacular scenery. With delicious food, fascinating history, and rich culture, the Chiemgau is a great destination for cycling.

In this Collection, we guide you along the ten most beautiful adventure and themed Tours through Chiemgau, a beautiful area in Bavaria in Southern Germany. The varied routes are between 17 and 29 miles (27 and 47 km) long, so you’ll find the right adventure for you.

Many of the routes take you close to water. You can get to know the region’s rivers and lakes on the ‘water adventure Tour’, or cycling around Chiemsee, Waginger See, or Tachinger See. On hot days, you can take a dip in one of the lakes or relax on a beach cafe terrace overlooking the Alps.

You can learn about the region’s history and culture at rustic farms, impressive monasteries, and open-air museums en route. If you love to try new foods, you can indulge in regional specialties on the ‘Schmankerltour’.

All of the Tours in this Collection make use of the region’s wonderful infrastructure. As well as bicycle-friendly accommodation, you will find countless places to stop for refreshments en route.

The starting points of the Tours are easy to reach with public transport. Most regional trains allow you to travel with your bike, too. The Südostbayernbahn trains even let you bring your bike for free and Achental Line buses also transport bicycles. If you prefer to travel light without your bike, you can easily rent one when you arrive.
