Cycling holidays in Germany

Whether as a standalone centrepiece or a lynchpin of an unforgettable journey between Austria and Switzerland, your time spent cycling in Germany will let you in on some of the country's most beautiful secrets.

Whether you're meandering along the crystalline rivers and deep valleys that intersect the Alpine beauty of Bavaria, beginning a cross-country adventure along the Danube or taking on 250km of gliding trails that surround Lake Constance, our handpicked cycling tours of Germany will help you see the absolute best the region has to offer.

Take cycling trips of Germany to a new level with Headwater

Among the fierce competition of the many postcard-perfect countries of central Europe, Germany isn't perhaps the first name that springs to mind when thinking of the region's best scenery. Take one of our cycling trips across Germany, however, and you'll see that its contrasting dark forests, pretty towns and lush green meadows more than belong in the conversation. Discover a variety of breathtakingly scenic tours around the landlocked Bavarian region, an area that encapsulates all of Germany's best aesthetics. Take your choice from a wider tour of the region's lakes and mountains or undertake a more in depth visit around Chiemsee - otherwise known as the 'Bavarian Sea'. Set at a slower pace than many of our other tours, we'll give you the chance to see Bavaria in a suitably relaxing tone.

You can also experience cycling in Germany as part of a wider exploration of the continent's central delights, with a tour of the baroque, gothic and palatial architecture around the shoreline of Lake Constance highly recommended. A body of water at the northerly edge of the Alps, Lake Constance borders Austria, Germany and Switzerland, providing riders with a taste of all three countries across a calm and flat 250km route.

Alternatively, our cycling holidays in Germany can begin in Passau, with a winding and mystical exploration of the Danube River that concludes in one of Europe's true cultural epicentres in Vienna, Austria. Whatever route you opt for, we'll ensure the magic of cycling in Germany is interjected with some of the most charming stayover spots your chosen region has to offer, as well as access to a variety of package upgrade options and a high-quality bike to accompany you along the way.

Book our cycling tours of Germany in absolute confidence

Just as our cycling trips of Germany are carefully crafted to offer you the ultimate relaxing getaway adventure, we also want you to feel at absolute ease with the booking process amid the uncertain times we're currently living in. While the nature and pacing of our cycling holidays in Germany naturally lend themselves to social distancing, it's important that we reassure you that you and your booking group are suitably protected both before and during your chosen tour.

We guarantee you a full refund of your trip if it needs to be cancelled on either end due to changes in COVID-19 restrictions via our market-leading booking protection scheme. If you need to adjust dates of the trip, we'll offer you the flexibility to do so at no extra cost anywhere up to 31 days before your trip's start date.

We also include COVID-related cover as standard in our Headwater travel insurance policies, while our travel safety promise means we are committed to only providing access to safe destinations and the highest standard of health and safety protocols across all of our cycling tours of Germany.
