1. Day: Salzburg

Individual arrival and accommodation.

2. Day: Salzburg - Waginger See (approx. 47 km)

At first we cycle part of the way along the Salzach and from Laufen in western direction to the Waginger See, the warmest lake of Upper Bavaria. With a view of the beautiful greenish-blue shimmering water we enjoy the picturesque region and numerous outdoor dining areas invite us for a hearty snack with regional delicacies. Accommodation in Waging am See.

3. Day: Waginger See - Chiemsee (approx. 22 - 34 km)

We quickly reach Lake Chiemsee, the famous „Bavarian Sea“. The afternoon passes by pleasantly on the lake in direct view of the Chiemgau chain of Alps. Accommodation either in Chieming/surroundings or in Übersee.

4. Day: Tour of the "Bavarian Sea" (approx. 51 km)

Today we discover Lake Chiemsee in all its facets. Equally enjoyable is a boat trip to the Chiemsee Islands of Herreninsel and Fraueninsel. Alternatively, we may offer you a bicycle trip to the famous Seeon with its monastery lake. Accommodation the same as yesterday (in Chieming/surroundings or in Übersee).

5. Day: Chiemsee - Inzell (approx. 34 - 46 km)

We cycle through fragrant woods and past lush meadows and rustic farms via Siegsdorf into the popular air health resort of Inzell with the famous Inzeller Moor (nature protection area).

6. Day: Inzell - Berchtesgaden (approx. 45 km)

Via Schneitzlreuth we head along the Saalach to Bad Reichenhall, which has earned international reputation through its salt production. On we go to Berchtesgarden, where the impressive panorama of the Watzmann Mountain rises high above the city.

7. Day: Berchtesgaden - Königssee - Salzburg (approx. 28 - 40 km)

Today lends itself to a trip to Lake Königssee with the well-known pilgrimage church of St. Bartholomew (all in all, the distance between Bertchesgarden – Königssee – Berchtesgarden is about 12 km). Electric boats glide across the emerald green water amidst a craggy rocky landscape and we can listen to the echo of the Königssee. Once again, we have reached the city of Mozart, Salzburg, in almost no time.

8. Day: Salzburg

Individual departure or extension of trip.
