Vom Wald das Beste. – Nationalparkregion Bayerischer Wald


in the Bavarian Forest

Almost endless forest panoramas, mountain peaks and vantage points with magnificent views, plateaus, romantic streams, glacial lakes and moorlands. The Bavarian Forest National Park and its Czech neighbor, the Sumava National Park, are a unique natural area. The dense network of trails and paths makes the region a paradise for mountain bikers. The touring options on both sides of the border seem endless - biking fun becomes a boundless pleasure.


Whether you are a real pleasure cyclist or an ambitious mountain biker who likes challenging tours: Here in the vacation region, you'll find both easy-to-ride trails and challenging tours.

Trans Bavarian Forest (northern route)

The Trans Bayerwald mountain bike route, which runs extensively and wildly through our region, has won several awards. Challenging, with great views and, above all, linked to nature!

One request: Stay on the marked cycle paths and respect the refuges for valuable nature. Then nothing stands in the way of an untroubled cycling experience.

The pleasure cycle path

Experience and enjoy without limits

A special experience for all cyclists is offered by the Pleasure Cycle Trail, which connects the two national parks on a fantastic circular route. The word "enjoyment" is certainly not too much of a promise here: This cycle trail allows you to experience the beauty and peculiarities of the national parks. Despite the close proximity, the outstanding natural beauty is often very different due to the relief. While the Bavarian side is dominated by deep, mysterious forests, the Czech Sumava National Park is characterized by vast plateaus with moors and mountain meadows. Anyone who has cycled the entire 140 kilometers of the route will have experienced all facets of the low mountain region of the Bavarian Forest and the Bohemian Forest.


Of course, you can also cycle only sections of the Pleasure Cycle Trail. From the towns in the vacation region, shuttle buses take you to the most beautiful sections of the trail. The Großer Arber or Falkenstein are worthwhile detours, but also require a good level of fitness. For trained mountain bikers or with electronic support, however, the mountain destinations are still easy to reach.

And the same applies here: please stay on the marked paths and respect the retreat areas for valuable nature.

Take care of nature and the environment!
Please do not damage any plants such as trees or bushes and always treat others with respect.
