Overview

Bavaria may be most famous for its mountains, baroque and beer, but thanks to the Benedictines there’s also a spiritual appeal. With magnificent churches and places of worship for an array of religions along this route, communities of all faiths come together in a stunning setting.

Your journey begins in medieval Wasserburg am Inn, as you make your way along the riverbank towards Au – home of the stunning church of the Augustine Canons of St. Maria and its adjoining monastery – home to many Franciscan monks.

Bavaria may be most famous for its mountains, baroque and beer, but thanks to the Benedictines there’s also a spiritual appeal. With magnificent churches and places of worship for an array of religions along this route, communities of all faiths come together in a stunning setting.

Your journey begins in medieval Wasserburg am Inn, as you make your way along the riverbank towards Au – home of the stunning church of the Augustine Canons of St. Maria and its adjoining monastery – home to many Franciscan monks.

Bavaria’s oldest, and most important, pilgrimage destination awaits you on your travels, as you encounter the incredible wood-carved, soot-stained Black Madonna in Altötting. You’ll also have the chance to see the birthplace of a former pope, and the world’s longest castle, in this culturally-enriching ride.

Travelling through Hufschlag to Traunstein – a historic centre of the Chiemgau, thanks to its array of churches and museums – there’s plenty of interesting architecture to whet your whistle as you near the end of this scenic route. Seeon, with its former Benedictine monastery, awaits those with the energy to get there as you head towards Wasserburg, but those who don’t make it can take a shortcut to Gstadt and ride beside Lake Chiemsee instead. In Gstadt, you’ll have the opportunity to take a trip to Frauenchiemsee or Herrenchiemsee, before heading onwards to Wasserburg.

Covering up to 240km over the course of the week, this is a leisurely ride that sticks mostly to flat roads and bike paths, although there are occasional gradients along the way.
