MUNICH BIKE TOUR
Explore the History, Architecture, and Culture of Munich
TOUR DESCRIPTION

Our Munich Bike Tour is the best way to discover Bavaria's capital!  Cruise through town on a comfortable city bike while learning about the history of this beautiful city.  See the building where the the Nazi party originated and learn about the resistance that built up to them.  Check out the famous Munich surfers on the Isar River, ride through Odeonsplatz, see the Bavarian Parliament building, and learn about how Oktoberfest came to be. Craving a cold pint after all that riding? We got you.  We will enjoy a leisurely ride through the beautifully manicured English Gardens and enjoy a break at the city's most traditional and best-loved beer garden.  Drinks and food are available, but it's also a great time to get to know your group. Munich's brewing history is central to the city, and your guide will happily explain the joyous beer culture that abounds here in Bavaria."Zum Wohl!"

How intense is the cycling on this tour?

We categorize our Munich Bike Tour as leisurely cycling. We want everyone to be safe and have fun, so confidence in yourself is paramount. There are plenty of bike lanes in Munich and vehicles and pedestrians are accustomed to cyclists. We ask that all riders be comfortable riding in a group, starting and stopping, and using hand brakes. We will give plenty of directions before and throughout the tour to ensure everyone's safety.

What's included in the tour?

We provide the bike, a helmet (available for free but not mandatory), a local, knowledgable guide, and plenty of opportunities to stop for photos and ask questions. We will also include a stop at traditional Bavarian beer garden in the English Garden. The cost of any food or drink during the tour is at your discretion, as are gratuities. We will not enter any of the museums or monuments that we see during this tour, as that would extend it to a full day event. We will, however, provide you with plenty of information to circle back to the sites that interest you most and equip you with the know-how to make the most of your visit.
