Vilstal Cycle Path
On the former route of the railway line Dorfen - Taufkirchen (Vils) - Velden, which was closed in 1993, one of the most beautiful cycle paths in Bavaria was built in 1999/2000. After the three municipalities involved had acquired the land in a long-standing negotiation poker with the Deutsche Bundesbahn in 1998, progress was made quickly, especially in Taufkirchen (Vils). In October 1999, the Taufkirchen (Vils) – Velden section was opened. A year later, the line to Dorfen followed.
Since the route has only slight inclines, many families with children take a cycling trip here. The route, which is paved throughout, is shared by cyclists, walkers and skaters.
If you want to enjoy nature, you can make the most of it: The route leads past fields, pastures and wooded areas. Between Taufkirchen (Vils) and Dorfen you have a magnificent view over the Isental. Numerous rest areas with benches invite you to linger. For a snack, there are also several refreshment stops along the route.
Sempt-Isen Cycle Path
The Sempt-Isen cycle path runs through the agricultural district of Erding. It crosses the moss landscapes between Ismaning and Erding and the tertiary hill country with beautiful views between Erding and Schwindegg. Mainly low-traffic roads with good pavement are used. At Babing, the cycle path leads to a former railway line. Here you can also change to the Vilstal cycle path.
