By bike
  • For cyclists, many ways lead to the Youth Hostel. Coming from Tutzing, just continue along the lake. From Starnberg, it is easiest to find your way to the Hostel if you turn into the residential area, then continue to Niederpöcking and then through Moritz-von-Schwindt-Weg into the forest, in the direction of Possenhofen Badegelände (bathing area). Those who have already been to Andechs simply ride down the hill to Possenhofen via Pöcking.
  • We recommend even cyclists use the footpath in the direction of the Youth Hostel at Possenhofen, as the main road is very narrow and dangerous.
  • There are a a large number of cycling routes around lake Starnberg. Bikes are a suitable and popular means of transport and piece of leisure equipment in our area. Should you have any questions regarding cycling routes, we are happy to help. We can also provide you with cycling maps.
