50 lakes country?
The 5 lakes region has more to offer than the 5 eponymous lakes. The last ice age shaped the country and left many other smaller lakes and ponds. So live out a little thirst for adventure in the mixed weather and visit the many lakes west of Lake Starnberg. In the undergrowth, I ended up in a riding stable, which is better to avoid driving.
Then back in better weather on the east bank of Lake Starnberg.

I once wanted to circle the Simetsberg by bike, but the action turned into a bike and hike tour. The area around the Neulägeralm is fantastically beautiful and, apart from the annoying bike, a great hike. You should also be careful with the navigation here. With a little thirst for adventure a nice tour, preferably in dry conditions (not like today 🛀)

"Um den Herzogstand" is also an old classic that was already described in the "Moser Bike Guides".
From Eschenlohe today clockwise, which has the advantage of being able to comfortably roll down the last km.
There was a lot going on on the trails, and of course a lot more on Lake Walchensee. Bikers, hikers, bathers, surfers, sailors - everyone enjoyed the almost surreal turquoise color of the lake.
Then back through the Eschenlainetal to Eschenlohe.

Today there was a lap from the parking lot of the Wankbahn first towards Partnachklamm, then very steeply up to Graseck and further towards Elmau. Then roll past the Ferchensee and Lautersee to Mittenwald. On the humpback meadows between Mittenwald and Klais you have uninterrupted great views of the Wetterstein, Karwendel and Ester Mountains.
Then another strenuous ascent along the Finzbach to finally the Esterbergalm.
Check the brakes there again, because it's back to the Wankbahn with a 30% gradient.

The round from Eschenlohe to the Estergebirge is an old classic that was described in the "Moser Bike Guides" over 25 years ago. That was when I did the tour for the first time.
Through the beautiful Eschenlainetal with a few steep ramps and a ford. Then steeply up to the vantage point and briskly down again towards Wallgau. From here there are always fantastic views of the Karwendel and the Wetterstein Mountains.
Leave out the driver at the Pfeifferalm or enjoy the ingenious panoramic view.
Then back along the Loisach to Eschenlohe.

On Sunday I was too full of cyclists, so I'd rather spend Mother's Day with coffee and cake and go out on Monday evening. The sun doesn't set until a quarter to nine.
So go ahead and use the many driveways in the area to get a few vertical meters in the legs.

A tour to the 5 lake region. At Mamhofen I ended up in the middle of nowhere, because because of the reconstruction of the country roads, the dirt roads here end in nothing - drive around a wide area!
But then beautiful dirt roads and side streets to Seefeld Castle and Pilsensee. The sailors are already out and about on the Ammersee. At the Wörthsee it was very full (parking spaces occupied), so better continue. Back home via the Wesslinger See. Nevertheless, there were always great panoramic views.
