Long-distance routes and tour tips
The Danube-Lake Constance Route through Upper Swabia and the Württemberg Allgäu region takes cyclists through gentle hills and sweeping upland plains.
This link between the Danube and Lake Constance cycle routes runs from Ulm on the Danube to Kressbronn on Lake Constance. After stopping for a break on the market square in Biberach, you continue through meadows and woodland to Bad Waldsee. The route then heads down into the valley of the Wolfegger Ach river, after which villages, flower-filled meadows and copses begin to line the path. Kisslegg with its historical buildings and Wangen with its old town both merit a visit. The final stage is a downhill section to Kressbronn through conservation areas, apple and cherry orchards and fields of hops.
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 long-distance cycle route that passes through orchards and hop fields and the foothills of the Alps; skirts the Upper Swabian Baroque Route. Lots of swimming lakes, spa resorts and thermal baths.
