Tour description:

Salzburg - Eugendorf - Köstendorf - Laufen - Waging - Chieming - Breitbrunn - Amerang - Wasserburg am Inn - Rosenheim - Niederndorf Kössen - Lofer - Bad Reichenhall - Berchtesgaden

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart also stayed in the Chiemgau. The cycle path follows in his footsteps through the Schönramer Filz , one of the largest high moors in Bavaria , to the Waginger See , the warmest lake in Upper Bavaria. Mozart stayed in Waging with his mother during a concert tour and reported that they lived like princes. From the popular holiday resort at Waginger See we drive to the Chiemsee , the "Bavarian Sea" with numerous lidos, cafes and boat harbors. In Chieming , on the eastern shore of Lake Chiemsee, you can enjoy the sunset on the promenade. From there you have the option of cycling along the lake via Breitbrunn to Amerang or taking the new variant via Seeon and Obing to Amerang.

As a child, Mozart spent a lot of time in the well-known Seeon Monastery, which is well worth seeing. He composed two offertories (parts of a mass) for the monastery. The cycle path continues to Obing . It is said that Mozart's father Leopold often drove there with his children from Salzburg in a carriage and spent the night in the tavern or in the post office in Frabertsham and drank the good Seeoner beer with the fathers in the vicarage.
