Lakes and Mountains of Bavaria Cycling

  • Cycle through pretty Bavarian villages, along lakes and rivers and enjoy alpine views
  • Enjoy swimming opportunities in the lakes
  • King Ludwig's Neuschwanstein Castle

The Upper Bavarian alpine upland is a region of pastures and lakes, traditions and lederhosen, beer and dumplings - and you'll find them all on our 7 night round trip. Starting from the Fugger city of Augsburg you'll cycle through beautiful landscapes of lush meadows, deep blue lakes and an alpine backdrop and discover the long history of the region from Baroque churches, King Ludwig II's castles of Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau and traces of the Romans along the Via Claudia Augusta.

You'll ride on a mixture of cycle paths and side roads with little traffic, passing through traditional Bavarian villages to reach the first of many lakes along your route, Lake Ammersee where you can enjoy a boat trip on a paddle steamer. Your first few days will take you uphill to the foothills of the Bavarian Alps to King Ludwig's fairytale castles. The return to Augsburg, takes you along the river Lech, and along parts of one of the oldest tourist routes in the world, the Romantic Road, mainly on flat terrain.

Hotel Opera, Munich

Hair dryer iconNEARBY:

The Hotel Opera is situated in the Lehel district of Munich, the area has a village feel to it, but is just a 15 minute walk to the main centre of Munich and a 20 minute walk to the Englischer Garten, Munich's huge leafy park.

The hotel has a wonderful Romanesque facade, and the building itself dates back to the 19th century, damaged in the war the building was bought in 1968 by the present owners who took 8 years to painstakingly restore and renovate the building.

Today's hotel is a nice mix of modern and old, with lovely airy rooms and and a relaxing tranquil garden patio. Rooms have all mod cons and some come with balconies, the hotel also owns a couple of superb restaurants close by.

Breakfast is served at your table with a choice of cold meats and cheeses or croissants and fruit and the option to order freshly cooked eggs.
