Through lovely pastures you cycle around Lake Tegernsee to Gmund on Tegernsee with marvellous panorama view. Then you cycle past green meadows and Lake Schliersee on gently undulating roads to Bad Feilnbach. The mild climate and more than 30.000 fruit trees contribute to the nickname “Bavarian Merano”. 

Day 4: Bad Feilnbach / surroundings – Lake Chiemsee approx. 45 km
Today you cycle through the largest peat plot of Bavaria, Kollerfilze. Soon you reach Neubeuern – a place having two crossed boat-hooks as symbol.

Tonight you stay on the south-bank of the Bavarian Sea. Enjoy a boat trip to the islands Herren - and Frauenchiemsee.

Day 5: Lake Chiemsee – Inzell approx. 35 km

Then you keep along the river Rote Traun to idyllic Inzell. So called “Lüftlmalerei” decorative paintings on the houses as well as rich flower decoration please the eyes.

Day 6: Inzell – Berchtesgaden / Lake Koenigssee approx. 45 km
Mountains to the right and to the left and squeezed in a green valley, here you cycle on Deutsche Alpenstraße via Schneitzelreuth along river Saalach to Bad Reichenhall (salt spring, Munster St. Zeno, health spa park).
