Neuschwanstein - Plansee - Oberammergau 2009
Castles and lakes, big forests, also some wide fields with cows and horses -- mostly avoiding high-traffic roads. We did this as one section of a single-day loop ride of 111 km (or less), but some riders might want to use it as a stage of a longer multi-day tour. Though it starts and ends in Germany, much of the middle goes thru Austria.

Visits two famous castles with remarkable exterior looks: Neuschwanstein and Linderhof - (recommend planning an extra 45 minutes off the bike to walk around the exterior of Linderhof). A long section beside a mountain lake and thru a forest with very little human development. Oberammergau is famous for its "passion play", and this route goes past the playhouse, but apart from that the town is pretty and pleasant to visit.
All on reasonably good asphalt except for one short section on dirt (which could be avoided). Some long gentle sections, some long moderate climbs, some short steep climbs.
For the other two sections of the loop, search on Bikely for [denpob], [denpoc].
We've done it once so far: the track given is from our GPS. We thought the full loop was a great ride so we're sharing it, but it's possible there are some mistakes or problems we didn't notice. This route not checked by us since 2009.
