"Ismaninger Speichersee": Cycling mostly along the embankment of the Ismaning water storage reservoir.
The reservoir is one of 35 sites in Germany designated as Wetlands of International Importance (Ramsar Sites).
Along the northern shoreline, part of the embankment is closed to the public from Mondays to Fridays since a BMW test drive range borders the northern shoreline.

A former peat bog designed for the biological treatment of waste water from Munich. The site consists of an artificial reservoir formed by the damming of the Isar River and 30 adjacent fishponds used for carp breeding and is surrounded by agricultural land. It supports breeding birds and is internationally important for wintering and staging waterbirds. The banks of the reservoir are mostly devoid of vegetation, although part of the southern shoreline is composed of a succession from reedbeds to woodland. Human activities include seasonal hunting and fishing. Ramsar site no. 92.
