The Allgäu region stretches between Lake Constance and Munich. It is an impressive landscape in the Alpine foothills and your tour will be characterised by lush green meadows, brown cows, delicious cheeses, typical houses and Baroque churches. There have been excellent hiking trails in the region for a while, but now new cycle paths enable a stunning round trip that starts and ends at Lake Constance. For the sporty tour in the Allgäu you should have a good level of fitness for this tour. Alternatively, you can use an e-bike.
Day 1 Arrival in Kressbronn
Enjoy a first refreshing swim in Lake Constance or take off for a short trip to Friedrichshafen to the Zeppelin Museum, where you can learn all about the history of aviation.
Day 2 Kressbronn - Oberstaufen, approx. 65 km/ 40 mi
A short stretch takes you along the lake to Lindau. Shortly after the island town you leave the lake, it goes uphill – there the typical landscape of lush green meadows and brown cows awaits you.

Today you will explore this traditional region in a relaxed manner. How about a trip with the mountain railway to Oberstaufen's local mountain, the Hochgrath?
Day 4 Oberstaufen - Füssen, approx. 75 km/ 34 mi
Clear lakes, impressive mountains and Baroque church towers – this awaits you on today’s stage. At your destination you will visit the castle Hohes Schloss. Alternatively, you can take a detour and see the fairytale castle Neuschwanstein.
