Full description
Starting from the Hauptbahnhof (Central Train Station), this half-day bicycle tour is a great way to see the city of Munich. Guides are local Munich residents who know the best routes, the best stories, and the best spots to stop for a quick drink. The first stop of the tour is the Neoclassical square, Königsplatz, often called Munich's Acropolis. A few minutes away is the impressive Odeonsplatz. Both are the legacy of King Ludwig I of Bavaria, a 19th-century monarch who wanted to make a grand city for kings. He actually succeeded in making Munich a great city for cyclists. From Odeonsplatz, you'll cycle through the picturesque royal gardens to the Englischer Garten, Europe's largest city park, where nudity happens to be legal. Then the tour stops at the famous Chinese Tower beer garden for refreshments. Cruise along the lovely banks of the river Isar, which leads back into the heart of Munich's beautiful Old Town. The charming pedestrianized Medieval streets around Marienplatz feature churches, markets, and cafes, and are a cyclist's heaven.

    Nice tour - but unfortunately without a break

    Unfortunately the tour started with our guide "Elisabeth" transferring us so that our tour only started 1 hour later. That's why you rushed yourself so hard in the morning. We then cycled across Munich and saw a lot. We got off our bikes at the prominent points and were told a few things about the buildings, etc. With over 3 hours of driving, it would have been nice to have been able to take a (toilet) break. Then one of our bikes lost air on the way and Elisabeth was quite at a loss, as not a single bike was equipped with an air pump. There is still room for improvement

    Great way to get an overview of the city

    I am so pleased we booked this guided tour for the day after we arrived in Munich. Our guide (Austin) was very knowledgable, and a very nice bloke. The pace of the tour was just right, and we covered the essential sights. As Austin said, we cover more than is possible on a walking tour. The day we arrived, we had taken a ride on the hop-on-hop-off bus, which was a waste of time. Doing a cycle tour is much better, since you can get to all the places a bus cannot. Austin also gave us a number of helpful hints about places to eat and drink, and what tio try out, which we did over the next couple of days. We would not have enjoyed the next two days as much if it had not been for these helpful hints, Great way to see Munich.
