Welcome to Lake Constance, the Swabian Sea. The labyrinthine Old Town of Lindau is home to beautiful shops and the Cathedral of Our Lady, which dates back to the year 810. It impresses with its ceiling murals as well as its Rococo-style interior. Stroll along the town fortifications from the 12th century or through the narrow laneways past the old town hall.
After a short stretch on the lakeshore, follow the Bodensee-Königssee cycle path, which takes you up to the Allgäu. Up to your stage destination, the Schroth-Heilbad Oberstaufen, you cycle past lush green meadows and enjoy the fantastic view of the Allgäu Alps. In the evening, enjoy a tipical meal in one of the traditional restaurants in Oberstaufen.
Enjoy a wonderful day in the Allgäu, in the beautifully situated Oberstaufen, directly in the Nagelfluhkette. Whether you want to do a little lap on foot, take the train to one of the many peaks and enjoy the fantastic view from there, or just want to spend a relaxing day in the outdoor pool. The Allgäu is pure vacation!
You will cycle past Lake Großer Alpsee and through stunning valleys to Immenstadt. Green cow meadows, magnificent Baroque churches and crystal blue water characterise the landscape. After Lake Grüntensee you will reach Nesselwang. You can take the cable railway up to the peak of the Alpspitze. Alternatively, you can marvel at the more than 2500 painted and decorated eggs at the easter museum.
You will soon arrive at Forggensee lake, Germany's biggest reservoir. In Füssen you can visit Hohe Schloss castle, the former summer residence of the Augsburg bishops. Today, it accommodates a gallery. Alternatively you can go on a trip to the fairytale castle of Neuschwanstein, the famous castle that belonged to Ludwig II.
Idyllic Allgäu treasures lie on your route to Kempten, one of the oldest towns in Bavaria. Underneath the Erasmus chapel is a unique museum that tells the history of the town in a room that has been rediscovered. A unique museum. In this residence magnificent rooms await you – some decorated in brilliant colours and others quite simply designed. The various decorative elements give the rooms a special flair.
Today you will cycle in the Württembergian Allgäu region. From Kempten you will cycle past the Raggenhorn mountain towards Isny. Here the Old Town is a tempting place to spend some time. You will then continue on to Wangen, which in earlier times was famous throughout the entire region for its farmers’ market. The Old Town of Wangen is a picturesque self-contained ensemble of buildings spanning from the Early Middle Ages to the Late Baroque period.
After you have left Wangen, your cycling tour through the Allgäu Region leads you back towards Lake Constance. At Tettnang the second largest hop growing area in Germany begins. The warm climate and the many hours of sunshine between the Allgäu and Lake Constance allow the climbing plants to grow very well. Past Kressbronn you cycle back to Lindau along the shores of the lake. Enjoy the view of the Austrian and Swiss mountains.
After breakfast your tour through the Allgäu region comeas to an end. We would be more than happy to extend your stay on Lake Constance.
