Lake Constance-Königssee Cycle Path – a cycling adventure with a picture-perfect backdrop

This long-distance cycle path from the Swabian Lake to Lake Königssee offers stunning views of the Alps and the Alpine foothills. However, this route will make you work hard to discover its many beautiful highlights.

With panoramic Alpine views from start to finish, picturesque lakes, villages and towns, and the fairytale castles of King Ludwig II, the Lake Constance-Königssee Cycle Path is not to be missed. But these temptations need to be earned by tackling the many climbs that this route has to offer. The route starts in Lindau and makes a detour to Sonthofen shortly after Immenstadt, before getting cyclists back on the original track near Rettenberg.

Passing through the rolling hills of the Allgäu, the route leads nicely past the Bad Tölz Brewery, Lake Tegernsee and Lake Schliersee. Cyclists are also sure to be tempted to stop off at Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein Castles before they ultimately end up at the beautiful spots of Berchtesgaden and Lake Königssee, where the route finishes.
