Upper Swabia with its beautiful landscape is perfectly suited to this cycling tour. Those cyclists who are interested in a sporty and challenging tour, can explore the hilly landscape of Lake Constance hinterland, between the Danube and the Lake, crossing over the Württembergian Allgäu. The contrast between the buzz of Lake Constance with its impressive Alpine panorama and the peaceful landscapes of the Wurzer Ried and Federsee Lake is particularly attractive.

Day 1: Individual arrival in Constance

You start your tour in Constance, Lake Constance’s biggest town. 600 years ago this was where the Council of Constance took place, the only council to elect a pope that was held north of the Alps. The Rhine leaves Lake Constance here: 0 kilometres on its way to the North Sea. Only a few minutes by foot from the medieval town centre is the Swiss town of Kreuzlingen with its lively harbour.

Day 2: Constance – Bad Saulgau, approx. 95 km + ferry trip

Take the ferry from Constance to the northern shore of Lake Constance and enjoy the view of the Alpine panorama. The Lake Constance Cycle Path takes you to Immenstaad. Here you leave the Lake for now and discover the countryside further inland on your way to Markdorf. From Markdorf you cycle along the Danube – Lake Constance Cycle Path and follow it through Aulendorf and Bad Schussenried until you reach your destination Bad Saulgau.

Day 3: Bad Saulgau – Ulm, approx. 85 / 95 km

The Federsee basin is an ancient region full of culture ‒ archaeologists have made significant discoveries here from the Old Stone Age up to lake-dwellings of the Bronze Age. In the beautiful town of Rottenacker you reach the Danube which you follow to Ulm. The former Austrian town Ehingen and the renaissance-castle in Erbach are worth a visit.

Day 4: Ulm – Bad Wurzach, approx. 80 km

Soft, rolling hills, moors and silted-up lakes characterise this route in Northern Swabia. However, culture is also represented; Ochsenhausen is home to an impressive Benedictine Abbey. Your destination for the day is most well-known for its healing moor waters. Why not relax with a moor treatment or in the thermal baths.

Day 5: Bad Wurzach – Wangen im Allgäu, approx. 60 km

Today’s route is shorter, however as you are exploring the Württembergian Allgäu, it is still challenging. The Renaissance building of Zeil Castle is impressively located above Leutkirch; the winter sport and climatic health-resort of Isny is worth a visit and you are able to enjoy a relaxing evening in the well-preserved Old Town of Wangen.

Day 6: Wangen im Allgäu – Bregenz, approx. 55 km

To start off you cycle through one of the most important hop-growing regions in Germany, before orchards begin to take over the landscape. In Kressbronn you come to Lake Constance, the banks of which you follow along through Lindau until coming to the capital of Vorarlberg; Bregenz. Along the route you have the opportunity to marvel at the fascinating Alpine panorama.

Day 7: Bregenz – Constance, approx. 70 km

The start of today’s tour leads you through the Rhine delta, an important nature conservation area. Near Altenrhein you cross over the border to Switzerland, where you find the market hall; the last building of the artist Friedrich Hundertwasser. You cycle to Constance mainly through orchards and the small towns of Arbon and Romanshorn.
