Six Bavarian orienteering clubs organized the "Bavarian Orienteering Tour" in the week before WMOC as a warm-up event. About 100 participants from all over the world (e.g. Australia, Brazil, Russia and Japan) experienced a great sportive and cultural journey through Bavaria with best weather conditions.

Orienteering in the morning, sightseeing in the afternoon - that was the concept of the tour. Besides six orienteering stages in interesting forest and park terrains plus a prologue, the runners were offered sightseeing tours in Munich, Landshut, Regensburg, Bamberg and Coburg. A boat trip on the Danube river with a sociable "Bavarian Evening" and the final "Franconian Evening" an a traditional brewery inn completed the exciting week.
