Whether in summer, to visit the famous Tollwood Festival, which takes place annually on the Olympic grounds, or simply to enjoy the view over Munich from the Olympic Mountain. No matter for what reason you want to go on this beautiful and spectacular bike tour, it will definitely be an experience and will bring you closer to some natural and quiet corners of the city of Munich, in addition to extensive grassland and cool forests.

If you are living outside of Munich in the district of Fürstenfeldbruck, you will probably be frequently drawn to the mountains or to the Fünfseenland south-west of the city on many weekends. But there are also plenty of beautiful things to discover and see between Fürstenfeldbruck and the Olympic Park in the west of the city. Explore great places on this route, from wide open views over the fields with an alpine panorama, to architectural masterpieces of the Schloss Blutenburg and Nymphenburg, as well as a cycle path that leads past agricultural fields in the middle of the city.

 

Information about the tour:

This tour can be taken as a round trip following the tour "On the trail of the 1972 Olympic assassination attempt" or as an individual tour.

Start your bike tour at the Maisach train station and drive south towards Airfield Fliegerhorst Fürstenfeldbruck out of the community.

After about one kilometer you will reach a traffic light and a double bend priority road, which you follow both times and which leads to the main square in Fürstenfeldruck. Follow the road beyond the bridge and turn right immediately after the bridge onto Bullachstraße. After about 200 meters turn right onto a small path and then left again at the next opportunity.

You are now in the city park of Fürstenfeldbruck and are riding the Amper-Ammer-Radweg. Follow it over Fürstenfelder Straße until you get between the railroad line and the monastery Fürstenfeld. Turn right behind the monastery grounds onto Am Engelsberg and follow the path under the railroad line up the hill to the village Gelbenholzen.

When you reach Hoflacher Straße, turn left and drive past the Bürgerhaus until you can turn right over a bridge. Follow Parsbergstraße until it makes a right turn. Continue uphill on Parsbergstraße, which will take you out of the community of Alling. Follow the road across the field until you reach the Waldgasthof Schusterhäusl on a hill in the forest. Here you have the opportunity to take a break and enjoy a cool drink in the beer garden.

Follow the road further downhill until you reach the outskirts of the town of Germering. Here you turn left onto Burgweg and take the first possible right turn in an open field. (If you continue straight ahead here, you will meet the Germeringer See, which invites you to take a refreshing). Follow the road and after about 500 meters turn onto Sandgrubenweg and then after about 20 meters turn right onto Triebstraße.

As soon as you reach Schmiedstraße turn left and the nextturn right again (Bärenweg) . Now you will meet Augsburger Straße, which you follow (while turning right).

As soon as you see a McDonald's restaurant on your right, go straight across the large crossing and follow the road, which is now called Augsburger Weg. The way leads you along the Bundesstraße 2, underneath it and then across the Autobahn A99.

Follow the road until you cross the suburban railroad line at a railroad crossing.

(You have to move your bike by hand while you are in the park) Now drive over a small river and keep left at the following fork in the road. You will now reach the Schlossgartenkanal, which you follow until you reach Nymphenburg Castle.

Behind the castle, continue along the canal until you reach Waisenhausstraße. Turn left here and follow Waisenhausstraße until you can turn right into Hohenlohestraße. From here, follow the cycle path along the water until you reach the Olympic Park.

Turn right after the bridge and follow the cycle path up to the Olympic hill. From there you can enjoy a breathtaking view over Munich and with a little luck over the mountains in the south.

Now drive down the mountain again and turn right onto the bridge. Follow the road to the right and drive to Coubertin Square. Cross the square and drive between the Olympic Stadium (left) and the Olympic Hall (right).
