The journey from the Ammer springs south of Oberammergau via the Ammerlake to Moosburg on the Isar totals approximately 200 km. The route faithfully follows the Ammer and Amper rivers. The distance may be comfortably covered in 3-4 days time if you choose to enjoy the beautiful villages and sights along the way.

The route is particularly attractive when travelled in reverse starting in the Munich vicinity and riding towards the Ammer springs near Oberammergau.

Travelling towards Oberammergau means taking on a slight incline for the entire tour- however, the view of the mountains on the horizon, your final destination, will encourage you. You will be riding from the foothills of the Alps into the scenic mountains of the Bavarian Alps. And if you still have energy to burn upon reaching the springs of the Ammer, continue on to the Benedictine monastery in Ettal or King Ludwig's II Castle Linderhof.

Coming from Munich it is also possible to start your ride at the Ammerlake. The distance from Herrsching am Ammersee (train/S-Bahn connection from Munich) to the Ammer springs is approximately 90 km. You will join the Ammer-Amper Cycleway between Raisting and Pähl as it approaches from the westerly chores of the Ammerlake.
