Nature lovers and fans of peace and quiet will love this cycle path along the River Iller. With the Alps in view, the route takes riders through the Allgäu with its stunning scenery, farms, onion-dome churches and quaint towns.
The quality cycle route begins at Ulm Minster, the highest church tower in the world, or in the Fishermen’s Quarter in Ulm’s old town, and ends in the famous winter sports resort of Oberstdorf in the Alps. The slightly hilly trail heads south through riparian forests and romantic landscapes. With the Alps in the distance, the route continues through picturesque pastures and courtyards. In Unterallgäu, keep to the left of the river to visit Kronburg Castle and Bad Grönenbach Castle. On the right-hand side of the Iller, Memmingen and the pilgrimage churches of Maria Schnee and Maria Steinbach are only a short trip away. After crossing the Iller dam in the picturesque town of Kempten, which has two town centres, the route continues along the mountain river through the tranquil Allgäu region. In the crystal-clear air of Oberstdorf, it is worth taking a look at the ski jumps and the surrounding mountains, which are up to 2,600 metres in height. The River Iller Cycle Path is a truly natural experience with stunning views!
