Bike Touring Highlight (Segment)
Includes segments in which cycling is forbidden
You will have to dismount and push your bike.
Two things in advance, there are two cycle paths around the Chiemsee, the Chiemsee cycle path and the Chiemsee circular path.
The blue Chiemsee circular route is 57 km long, it is intended for slow cyclists and the route is shared by cyclists, families, Nordic walkers and pedestrians.
And there is the 55km long and orange Chiemsee cycle path for sporty and fast cyclists, this cycle path is paved.
However, in some cases these paths also overlap. I drove a combination of both.
It doesn't really matter where you start on the Chiemsee circuit, the cycle path is very well signposted in both directions.
I drove clockwise on the circuit around the Chiemsee.
So if you are on holiday near the Chiemsee, you should definitely cycle around the Chiemsee.
You are never alone on this wonderful tour, if you decide to do this round tour when the weather is nice.
Since the circular route is completely flat, the circumnavigation is not too much of a challenge.
If you pedal without a break, you can circle the Chiemsee in three hours, there are locals who do this regularly for training.
As a holidaymaker, however, I took my time, and for good reason: There is a lot to discover plus side trips.

I drove overseas and along the west bank, unfortunately the description of comoot stopped about 20 km before reaching my destination and I had to find a way myself, which was not that easy, road, reeds and dirt roads without description.
Otherwise, the bike path leads a lot away from the lake, you don't see as much as I hoped.
