Lake Constance to Lake Königssee Cycle Path Classic Tour
The point of departure for the Lake Constance to Lake Königssee cycle path is the town of Lindau. From here on, the cycle path leads you through the hilly landscape of the Allgäu region. After a spectacular view of the Allgäu Alps, the Tannheimer Mountains and the highest peak of Germany, the Zugspitze, you will reach Hohenschwangau and get a glimpse of Neuschwanstein castle, which is one of Bavaria’s most famous postcard motifs and was built by King Ludwig II. It served as the inspiration for the Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty castle. Situated only a stone’s throw away from the picturesque castle you should not miss the opportunity to visit the Pilgrimage Church of Wies. The church has been added to the UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983 and is located near Steingaden. Further on, in Benediktbeuern the Benedictine Order with its over 1250 years of history invites you for a visit. The cycle path guides you to Bad Tölz through the Upper Bavarian picture book scenery until you reach the lakes Tegernsee, Schliersee and Chiemsee. Lake Chiemsee is the largest lake in the region and therefore known as the ‘Bavarian sea’. The island Frauenchiemsee is easy reachable by boat and invites you to take a stroll. You can continue by boat to the larger island Herrenchiemsee where another magnificent castle of King Ludwig II awaits you. Passing Traunstein the cycle path leads to Bad Reichenhall and Berchtesgaden. The final destination of the journey lies in the alpine scenery of the Berchtesgaden National Park. Finally, Lake Königssee, which literally means “king’s lake”, is indeed a crowning finale to a kinglike cycle tour.

Yellow, red, blue, dotted, small, large, round and oblong, waxy and floury anyway – potato varieties are like stars in the sky. For Hans Moser and Andrea, this is always an incentive to cultivate unusual “newcomers” in addition to popular standard varieties here in Salzburg’s Lungau region every year.

The region’s biggest and sweetest treat is the Wiesener “strawberry”. The wonderful scent of the sun-ripened fruits and the sparkling Rosalia Frizzante rosé make your mouth water. If it were not a strawberry, you would have to address it like royalty.

The whitefish innkeepers at Lake Millstatt do what their ancestors used to do: Every day they take the whitefish from the floating nets and process it straightaway. What the emperor used to enjoyed is still considered a delicacy today.
