Do you like riding a bicycle? Are you keen enough to hire one from many of the stations around Munich? If so, I commend you! Munich is so much more fun to discover on a bicycle!
There is a lot of freedom that comes with riding through Munich – you see the city from a different point of view, reach different corners, go longer distances. Of course, you can walk as well, but today I will write as if I am on my bicycle.
I am going to suggest Harlaching Way, a stretch which lies to the East of the city. It begins close to an area where I have already written about: Gans Woanders. If you go just behind Gans Woanders, you will find a beautiful area known in Munich as little Venice. Have a look around, it’s a very sweet area.
From here, you will come to the beginning of a bike path (Lohstraße 60) which heads south and is slightly elevated over the city. It begins with some bridges and graffiti, then you ascend to a shady bike/footpath. From here you have really beautiful views of the city centre as you ride along, regardless of the season. There are little spots to have a picnic break if need be. You can follow this path for 10 minutes, and turn back, or you can keep going along the Hochleite which will bring you to the well-known Großhesseloher Bridge, where you can cross the Isar and eventually make your way home.
