URSPRUNG & VERLAUF

Die ca. 110 km lange Loisach entspringt in einem Sumpfgebiet in der Gemeinde Biberwier und fließt von dort durch Ehrwald, vorbei an der Zugspitze zur deutschen Grenze und weiter durch Grainau und Garmisch-Partenkirchen, bis sie bei Wolfratshausen in die Isar mündet. Das Wasser der Loisach ist außerdem ein wichtiger Lieferant zur Energieerzeugung in unserer Region.

DIE LOISACHQUELLEN

Die Loisachquellen in Biberwier, nahe Blind-, Mitter- und Weißensee, sind durch einen riesigen Felssturz vor knapp 4.000 Jahren entstanden. Das weitläufige Quellgebiet der Loisach besteht aus einem flachen See. Das Wasser sprudelt hier aus vielen einzelnen Quellen direkt aus der Erde und leuchtet durch die kräftige Färbung von Algen und Wasser besonders intensiv.

Hier kannst Du bei einer Wanderung oder erfrischenden Kneippkur perfekt entspannen.

Eine ausführliche Wanderbeschreibung findest du in unserem Tourenportal.

THE BIKE PATH ALONG THE LOISACH

You can cycle on this ca. 115 kilometers long bike path - passing the border between Germany and Austria - from the Loisach sources at Biberwier up to the mouth into the river Isar at Wolfratshausen.

You can ride this tour leisurely with several breaks or you finish sportsmanlike in just one day. It does not really matter, this patch leads anyway you through an extremely impressive mountain area offering different splendid views to the Zugspitze. Many sources, lakes and moors provide varied scenery with their unique fauna during your ride. Just try it - it’s worth the effort.

KAYAK, CANOE & RAFTING

Kajak Loisach | Grainau

If you want to have extraordinary and fascinating adventures in nature, you can ride on the Loisach with a kayak or a canoe. But caution: the way between the national border at the hamlet Griessen and Garmisch-Partenkirchen is also the solely approved route for kayak world championships in Germany. It features very difficult parts. Only very experienced canoeists should try it. For beginners, we highly recommend to be accompanied by a certified trainer in this canoeing area. Alternatively, you can also join a group rafting tour organized by the instructors.
