Day Tour

Through the Würmtal

The Würm, 35km long, is not only a river between the Lake Starnberg and the river Amper but is also an eponym for the last major glacial period in the Alpine forelands: The Würm glacial period ended around 10.000 years ago and left behind the Lake Starnberg, the lake Ammer (Ammersee) and the wild and romantic Würmtal (the Würm valley).

Until 10.000 years ago, the glacier tongues reached from the Alps to the foreland. An extraordinary moraine landscape, full of lakes, rivers and streams, remained after the melting of the glacier tongues. In addition to more information about the geological history of the area, there will also be architectural highlights provided on our cycle tour following the Würm.

We will travel from the centre of Munich heading west, passing the Hirschgarten and Nymphenburg Castle and finally reaching the Blutenburg. The Würm circles around the baroque former hunting chateau and the attached castle chapel.

Of course you will hear several anecdotes about Sissi and Possenhofen Castle as well as the so-called Fairy Tale King Ludwig II and his mysterious death in Lake Starnberg.
