The starting point of the circular tour is the Baumburg monastery brewery in Altenmarkt ad Alz . The former Augustinian monastery in Baumburg now functions as a Catholic deanery. The Collegiate Church of St. Margareta , which is considered the " Rococo pearl of Chiemgau " and is enthroned on the wooded steep slope of the monastery hill, is particularly worth seeing. The historic Bräustüberl of the Baumburg monastery brewery is idyllically located in the courtyard of the monastery complex and offers a wonderfully beautiful spot to strengthen yourself for the round tour or just to relax. Along the designated themed bike tour you will discover the foothills of the Alps in the north of the Chiemgau . From Altenmarkt ad Alz we continue north, past Trostberg to Weissbräu Schwendl . The brewery with its brewery inn is located south of Tacherting in the district of Lengloh. The extensive menu and the diverse wheat beer specialties invite you to take a short break.

From here the path continues past Reit and Oberfeldkirchen via Biburg to Emertsham. From Oed you follow the signs to Schnaitsee. This is where the small Baderbräu brewery is located, where you can enjoy handcrafted beers in striking one-liter bottles. Passing the Weitsee we continue to Gallertsham. From there you cycle via Frabertsham, Allertsham and Ilzham to Obing. In Obing, the Obinger See provides welcome refreshment.

You continue cycling through the Seeoner Seen nature reserve past Landertsham to Seeon, where a visit to the Camba Bavaria brewery is a must. The Seeon monastery is wonderfully situated on the edge of the deep blue monastery lake. Originally a Benedictine monastery and today an internationally renowned day center and seminar hotel. It is rightly one of the most beautiful sights in the Chiemgau. From Seeon, the bike tour leads past the small Eglsee back to Altenmarkt ad Alz.

The “Seeoner Seen” nature reserve is in the immediate vicinity of the bike tour. The small lake district north of Lake Chiemsee offers pure enjoyment of nature. Explore the lake landscape and the surrounding diverse landscape on a walk or hike. Some of the lakes are also suitable for swimming and offer cooling off in the water in summer.

Alternatively, you can start your bike tour in Stein an der Traun . You should definitely pay a visit to the Stein Castle Brewery and the Steiner Höhlenburg . The cave castle of the legendary robber baron Heinz vom Stein, which is considered the most important cave castle in Germany, can be visited with a castle guide. Next to it is the Stein Castle Brewery, which seduces with excellent beer that is brewed in a harmonious combination of the latest technology and traditional craftsmanship. If you start your bike tour here, the round trip will be extended by around five kilometers.
