Holiday Information

A gently paced cycling holiday in Germany exploring the lakes of Bavaria. Enjoy your time cycling through tranquil secluded valleys, lush Alpine scenery with the ever-present dramatic backdrop of the Karwendel massif.
This holiday starts and finishes in Munich, which is easily accessed from airports throughout the UK and Europe. On this Bavarian cycling holiday there are only a few short climbs where you can walk if you wish, after all, there’s no rush!
On a combination of cycle paths and quiet roads you'll meander along lake shores and through valleys with unspoilt natural beauty. Cycling through various ancient, picturesque Bavarian villages and towns, such as the richly decorated town of Bad Tolz and village of Wallgau, will give you an insight into the local, traditional way of life. This is altogether a charming landscape.
Our cycling holiday takes you along the River Loisach through the Murnauer Moos nature reserve to the Winter Olympic Games town of Garmisch Partenkirchen. Here you can leave your bikes behind and take a cable car up Germany’s highest mountain, Zugspitze, from where there are breath-taking views of the surrounding Alps.
Contact us with your preferred dates and and let Skedaddle show you the best way to enjoy a cycling holiday in Germany. If you're interested in doing this holiday with children, do check out the family version of this trip, where you may find the information more relevant to your needs.
