Long-distance routes and tour tips
Tailor-made for cyclists to discover the Upper Swabia-Allgäu region, the people who live there and the local attractions and scenery – there’s no better way to get to know the region.
This amazing route features everything that makes Upper Swabia and the Württemberg Allgäu so popular: you’ll visit historical buildings and museums, relax at spa resorts and thermal baths, and enjoy a warm Swabian welcome as well as local food and drink. The tour begins and ends in Ulm, and takes you through pretty little towns and villages such as Laupheim, Wangen, Markdorf and Aulendorf. Very hilly at times, but with lots of easier sections too, the route runs through the various landscapes of an idyllic region with so much to see.
Terrain: the route runs mainly on asphalt paths, is otherwise surfaced with crushed brick/stone and is usually traffic-free. Hilly in parts with occasional challenging climbs.
Scenery: beautiful orchards and hop fields and the foothills of the Alps. Lots of swimming lakes, spa resorts and thermal paths; skirts the Upper Swabian Baroque Route.
