Bavarian Castles & Villages

Bavarian Castles & Villages Overview

Featuring hotels of character, and framed by mountains, this beautiful route reveals the best of southern Bavaria, a paradise for cyclists.

  • self-guided hotel-to-hotel cycling, luggage transported
  • visit castles, frescoed villages and the famous Wieskirche
  • high-quality hotels of character
  • ideal cycling terrain
  • follow part of the Romantic Strasse

Dotted with fairy-tale castles and opulent churches, the picturesque landscapes north-east of Füssen, the starting point for the long-distance Romantic Strasse cycling route, embody the romance of the Bavarian Alps. Sparkling lakes and idyllic villages of ornately frescoed houses are set against a backdrop of wooded slopes and craggy limestone peaks, and lush meadows are filled with flowers in early summer.



With plenty of designated trails and ever-changing panoramas, the cycling here is excellent, and there is great variety in the places of interest you can visit along the way. Featuring high-quality hotels of great character, our route takes in the UNESCO-protected Wieskirche, a important centre of pilgrimage; the picturesque lakes around Murnau, which have inspired many artists; the exquisite village of Oberammergau, whose houses are decorated with religious frescoes; and the most famous – and most romantic – of King Ludwig II’s castles, whimsical Neuschwanstein, set dramatically atop a cliff above a gorge.
