Hotel Boutique Dreimäderlhaus



Individual travel to Weissensee. Enjoy the first rays of sunshine on the hotel terrace or take a walk on the lake shore.

Today the Forggensee and thus Bavaria's fifth largest lake is on your program. With a view of the surrounding mountains, you cycle comfortably along the Forggensee to the Illasbergsee. On your varied bike tour, there are always beautiful bathing opportunities. The one at Hegratsrieder lake with its wide reed belt is particularly idyllic. A romantic little chapel stands on a grassy hill on the north bank of the Hegratsried lake. The chapel, painted white, stands out from the green grass and blue sky when the weather is nice and is a great photo opportunity. Afterwards Füssen is quickly reached again. Take a boat tour in the afternoon, because you can enjoy an exclusive and unique view of Neuschwanstein Castle, the mountains of the Ammergau, Lechtal and Tannheim Alps and the silhouette of the city of Füssen.

Impressive and wildly romantic you will cycle through the Allgäu foothills of the Alps today. From the Weissensee, you first go to Pfronten, from there on forest paths into the wild and romantic Vilstal valley. Take a break (June to September) at the Kalbelehof Alpe and treat yourself to a snack with a unique view of the beautiful Vilstal. Enjoy the Allgäu cows roaming around freely here before you get back on your bikes and cycle into the Tannheimer Tal. Between the rugged peaks of the Allgäu Alps, the blue sky stretches over the high valley. Some even say that the Tannheimer Tal is the most beautiful alpine high valley in Europe! A leisurely long descent then takes you through the Engetal and Achtal back to Pfronten and the Weissensee.

You cycle along the lakeside of the Weißensee to the Alatsee before you follow the Faulenbach stream to Füssen with its fascinating old town. Now you cycle in the footsteps of the Bavarian fairytale king directly to the spectacular and world-famous Neuschwanstein Castle, which towers on a rocky ledge above the valley. Today Neuschwanstein is one of the most visited palaces and castles in Europe! The nearby Hohenschwangau Castle is no less impressive. Take your time and visit at least one of the two castles, you will be amazed (your own early online reservation required).

Who doesn't know him? The Emmental cheese. The Allgäu is world-famous for its delicious cheese specialties. On today's bike tour you will discover five small cheese dairies that still produce Allgäu Emmental and mountain cheese in the traditional way. Look forward to a tasting of this delicacy, which of course should not be missing. Today you cycle past cow pastures and through several farming hamlets which seem to be taken straight from the pages of a picture book. Make sure you take a break in Seeg at the beautiful rococo church of Ortisei and admire this little art jewel. Around 1730 the Rococo replaced the opulent, splendid style of the Baroque in European art and contrasted it with a light, almost imaginative decorative elegance, which Ortisei proudly presents to this day. In addition to all this culinary art and culture, beautiful bathing areas await you on your bike path.

You cycle from Weissensee to Hopfensee, where the ruins of Hopfen Castle lie 100 meters above the lake. The complex, built in the 11th century, is the oldest stone castle in the Alläu! Some remains of the wall that are worth seeing are still preserved. However, the highlight is the magnificent view from the castle over the Hopfensee and into the Ammergau Alps. The next must-sees are Hopferau Castle and the Mariahilf pilgrimage church. Germany's highest situated castle complex, the Falkenstein castle ruins, will always be in your sight while you cycle through the Vilstal past the Vilsegg castle ruins. Vilsegg Castle was built on a steep rock around 1225, directly on the previously well-traveled trade route, Via Claudia Augusta, which ran along the northern edge of the Vils Valley. You then cycle back to Füssen and to the Hotel am Weißensee on the Lech cycle path.

The good times in the Allgäu passed far too quickly. If you want to discover even more and stay longer, you are welcome to book additional nights.
