Isar Cycle Route - River meadows and Alpine peaks

The Isar river passes through Switzerland and Austria en route to Germany where it offers panoramic views of the Alps and picture-book villages.

The Isar is Austrian by birth: it rises in the mighty Karwendel mountains before flowing through the craggy peaks, mountain pastures and farmhouses of the Alpenpark Karwendel conservation area. The towns and villages along the Isar are the epitome of Upper Bavarian charm with their beer gardens and beautifully painted houses. Medieval old quarters and the wooden relief in St. John’s Church in Fischbach are among the cultural highlights to be found along the way. Munich more than merits a longer stay, and is followed by a series of riverside meadows that extend from Plattling to where the Isar meets the Danube.

Terrain: the paths sometimes run on asphalt; otherwise they are paved, on gravel or surfaced with gravel and sand. The route has only a few climbs and is mostly free of traffic.

Scenery: family-friendly river route characterised by views of the Karwendel mountains and by riverside meadows in the Alpine foothills, plus typical Upper Bavarian towns and beautifully decorated farmhouses.
