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. You should have a good level of fitness for this cycling tour in the Allgäu. Alternatively, you can use an e-bike.
