Cycling holiday in an abbey

Find peace and quiet cycling from abbey to abbey

 
How about some time out in a monastery? Clear your head, exercise your calves and after every overnight stay in the abbey you’ll feel a load off your mind. Don’t believe me? Then simply cycle there and see for yourself. The Upper Bavarian churches and abbeys hold a special power inside. On these cycle paths through Upper Bavaria you’ll feel it!

Life coaching in the Benedictine Abbey on the Fraueninsel or calmness and serenity of the Seeon Abbey

Listen to your heart at the start of the tour in Grafing. Are you ready for the island? Great then make the Abbey on the Fraueninsel your destination. You can reach it by cycling along the Sempt-Mangfall cycle route, which later joins the Isar-Inn panoramic route. Follow these towards Wasserburg. Then choose between the Benedictine route or the Mozart cycle route to take you to Gstadt. Then get off your bike and onto the boat to the island, Fraueninsel, on Lake Chiemsee. If you like the island and the abbey, then you should visit one of the seminars offered by the abbey. As seminar participants may also stay overnight in the abbey. If you prefer to stay on dry land then cycle directly to the abbey in Seeon. The former abbey is now a hotel, cultural and training centre.
