      If you want a tour where every day is different, the scenery stunning and the distances long enough that you have earned that extra piece of apple strudel then this is the tour for you!

      What an incredible romp through Bavaria and along the Danube!
      An amazing journey of changing sights and sounds, whether biking through meadows accompanied to the sound of cow bells, past castle ruins, under historic Abbeys, through vineyards, or alongside the mighty Danube it was never a dull moment.

      So many special experiences with lots of "Firsts" ie. 141kms in one day!!!! Klaus and Sabine's dedication to us, making it such an awesome experience with their ongoing help in explaining and interpreting local customs and language.

      If you could hand pick your group you would never come up with a team like this one. The biking is the catalyst but it was so much fun that some days, the face and the sides hurt more than the legs.
      It seemed that most of the time there was a thrilling view or a surprise around every corner.
      The inclusion of some iconic cultural and heritage sites into the program is a highlight.

      Welcome to Germany! Please make your own way to Oberstdorf which is just 2.5 hours by train from Munich, the capital of Bavaria.

      We begin our ride through the beautiful lower Bavarian Alps, stopping for lunch just before we reach the lakeside resort town of Füssen. There will be some free time in Füssen before our scheduled visit to Schloss Neuschwanstein Castle.

      Today we gently descend to 500m, then continue to the Pilgrimage Church of Wies which has been miraculously preserved in the beautiful setting of an Alpine valley. Designed in the 1740’s, its the work of architect Dominikus Zimmermann and is a masterpiece of Bavarian Rococo – exuberant, colourful and joyful. We continue riding, past idyllic Bavarian lakes which are a popular summer and winter holiday destination, especially for people from Munich.
