Details about the cycling tour from Chiemsee to Königssee

Itinerary

After arrival, you have time to take a nice walk along the lake. In the evening you will receive the tour information and if you have reserved rental bikes, they will be adjusted to size.

The Chiemsee ring road is beautifully landscaped. It leads you along lonely coves and lively shores. Beautiful view of the lake while cycling leisurely. The shady beer gardens on the banks are ideal for long breaks. You can shorten parts of this stage by using a special bicycle bus (not included).

The "Bavarian Lake" offers many possibilities for completing a wonderful day. The ship will take you to the island of Herrenchiemsee with the König-Ludwig castle and the island of Frauenchiemsee. Several villages and seaside resorts along the lake also make for a relaxing day.

The mountains are getting higher and higher, but the cycling route remains almost flat. Via the nature reserve "Bergener Moos" you reach the foot of the Chiemgau mountain, the Hochfelln (1674 m), the route leads you via Bad Adelholzen with its healing spring to Siegsdorf. From there you cycle along the river Rote Traun to the idyllic climatic health resort of Inzell. The mansions decorated with flowers are an eye-catcher of the climatic spa.

The route runs through the mountains of the German Alpine Road via Schneitzlreuth along the Saalach River to the spa town of Bad Reichenhall. Bad Reichenhall has been a recognized spa town since 1890 and is known for its brine wells. Alte Saline in Bad Reichenhall sells the salt of the Reichenhall brand, which is sold throughout Germany and far beyond. Here you will find the salt caves and you can follow the process of how salt is extracted. There is ample opportunity for a "wellness day" or a ride to the 1,600 m high Predigtstuhl with the legendary oldest cable car in the world.

A short bike ride to Berchtesgaden. Opportunity to visit the Obersalzberg and the Kehlsteinhaus. A few cycling kilometres away you will find the Königssee, you can take a boat trip on the famous lake with a visit to the famous pilgrimage chapel, the Bartholomä Monastery or the Saint Bartholomew's Church at the foot of the mighty Watzmann Mountains.

Unfortunately, after breakfast, your cycling tour at Lake Königssee ends. We are happy to extend your stay with an extra night if you wish.

Route information

The cycle route is considered easy. Short stages and few climbs ensure that cycling with pleasure is central. Sometimes you need a little more muscle power on the slightly hilly cycle paths, but it never takes long before you will continue on the road relaxed! Apart from some slight differences in elevation, the route mainly takes you on flat, cobbled roads, sometimes short sections on busy roads.
