Chiemgau Highlights

Between lake Chiemsee and mountains

From Lake Chiemsee through the Berchtesgadener Land

The Chiemsee is the largest lake in Bavaria and, with its 80 square metres, is considered the "Bavarian sea". But it's not just the imposing body of water that's worth a visit, the Chiemgau is simply worth a (cycling) trip! Discover with us refreshing lakes, picturesque villages and the unique warmth of the region.

Details of the cycle tour Chiemgau Highlights

Even the first stage to nature-orientated Reit im Winkl is perfectly complemented by a detour to the Austrian Walchsee. Dive into one of the warmest bathing lakes in Tyrol. On day 3, the highlights come thick and fast: Explore the famous winter sports resort of Ruhpolding, enjoy the local culinary delights in Inzell and float in the thermal spa in Bad Reichenhall.

Via Berchtesgaden you cycle along the most beautiful paths to the Mozart city of Salzburg. Here you should plan enough time to explore the world-famous corners of the old town. You will not be disappointed, because Salzburg is simply magnificent! On the way back to the Chiemsee, you will pass two more beautiful, smaller lakes in the region - the Waginger See and Tüttensee.

Itinerary

In the evening welcome meeting and rental bike fitting. We recommend a first stroll along the lakeside

The mountains will get higher and higher, but the cycling route continues to be nearly flat when you get closer to them. You will cycle through Aschau with its palace which can be seen from far away lying at the foot of the Chiemau mountains, and past the Kampenwand on Priental cycle path towards Tyrol. In Austria you can take a break at idyllic Lake Walchsee, before you will pass the german-austrian border again to reach the climatic spa town of Reit im Winkl with its typical Bavarian alpine atmosphere.

Narrow between the mountains the routing will take you along the German Alpine Road. On Mozart Cycle Path you will get past Lake Weitsee and with a little luck you can see a famous biathlon athlete in Ruhpolding during their summer trainings. You can have a lunch break in Inzell, another famous climatic spa town with its famous Lüftlmalerei, before you cycle via Schneitzlreuth along river Saalach to famous spa town Bad Reichenhall. What about a bit of „wellness“ in thermal bath or a ride with the legendary and oldest cable car of the world to the Predigtstuhl, 1.600m above sealevel.

Today a short stage with lots of time to enjoy the fantastic views on Watzmann mountain on your way to Berchtesgaden. The Obersalzberg or famous Kehlsteinhaus is definitely worth a visit. Or you can cycle a couple of kilometres more along Königssee ache to reach famous Lake Königssee with the possibility to have a boat ride and the visit of Bartholomä monastery on the foothills of Watzmann.

Along Königssee ache you will pass the Bavarian-austrian border again and then you only have some pedal rotations more to reach Salzburg with its many attractions. After an extensive visit of Salzburg you will cycle relaxed on the Tauern Cycle Path along river Salzach until you reach charming Laufen and Oberndorf with its famous „Silent Night Chapel“. Have a nice stroll in the evening at the riverside to end your day.

The first part of the cycle tour will lead you through small villages and farms to Lake Waginger See and further along river Traun and to Traunstein. The town is famous for its small Hofbrauhaus. Romantic Lake Tüttensee is on your way to the lakeside of Chiemsee. You will follow the way around Lake Chiemsee back to the start of your tour.

The route

Overall a slightly hilly route with few steep ascents. Beautiful routing on cycle paths and calm side roads. Very short sections on streets with more traffic.
