  • GO cycle to 7 of Bavaria's best breweries

  • GO  enjoy routes away from heavy traffic, that take advantage of Germany's great network of cycling paths

  • GO  enjoy two nights on an island on the "Bavarian Sea"

Bavaria is famous for beer, but we think Bavaria should be famous for bike touring as well. We combine the best of both worlds by taking advantage of the great bicycle route infrastructure to get our customers to the best brews. In addition to making a visit to Augustiner and Paulaner in Munich, this route leads to breweries in monasteries, and in a convent located on an island in what the locals call, the Bavarian Sea.

This bike tour leads to 7 breweries altogether, and we will arrange tours of those breweries whenever possible. In some cases, as is the case for both Paulaner and Augustiner, there is no public access to the breweries, and the tour instead goes to the restaurant officially associated with that brewery. 

This tour is only available for cyclists aged 18 and older. 

Cyclists interested in getting as many brewery tours as possible, should aim toward building a group of 10 or 15, which will allow us to arrange private tours at many of the breweries.

Day 1: Arrive in Munich, pick up rental bikes (if applicable). Enjoy a beer (or two) in the historic Augustiner Beer Hall, where your beer will be served direct from a genuine wood barrel. Overnight in a nearby hotel (not applicable for the Ultralight Package) Day 2: Cycle 49 km. (30 miles) gaining only 3 m. (10 ft.) of elevation to Erding, just on the outskirts of Munich, and do a brewery tour (when available - 15€ additional). Enjoy an evening in a hotel, centrally located in the charming and traditional downtown district. If time allows, we recommend a visit to Therme Erding Day 3: Cycle 52 km. (33 miles) gaining 220 m. (722 ft.) of elevation Day 4: Cycle 72 km. (45 miles) gaining 383 m. (1,257 ft.) of elevation, taking a boat (11€ not included) to your finally destination. Enjoy a tour of this brewery, which is located in a convent (when available) Day 5: Enjoy a free day at the lake to relax, take a boat tour around the lake, or participate in other activities Day 6: Cycle 32 km. (20 miles) gaining 118 m. (387 ft.) of elevation Day 7: Cycle 61 km. (38 miles) gaining 629 m. (2,064 ft.) of elevation to the next brewery, also located at a lake. Although it is not possible to visit the actual brewery for a tour, an evening in the traditional beer hall just next to the lake should will certainly be a great reward after a long day of cycling. There is a distillery nearby to visit as well Day 8: Cycle 28 km. (18 miles) gaining 227 m. (745 ft.) of elevation to a historic and charming medieval town, famous for its spas Day 9: Cycle 81 km.

If not, enjoy a beer or two, and take a walk around the beautiful natural surroundings. This brewery is our personal favorite in all of Germany Day 10: Cycle 45 km. (28 miles) gaining 201 m. (660 ft.) of elevation to a brewery in a small bavarian village Day 11: Cycle 53 km. (33 miles) gaining 240 m. (787 ft.) to another monastery brewery. Depending on the timing of the tour, it may be possible to arrange a tour of this brewery Day 12: Cycle 53 km. (33 miles) back to Munich with 239 m.
