View of Hohenschwangau with a bicycle in the foreground

Truly magical sights await you in the picturesque Allgäu. There’s a reason the fairytale King Ludwig chose the beautiful Allgäu as the location and home for his stunning fairytale castles. And if there had been such good rental bikes back then, he would certainly have been an enthusiastic guest on our Allgäu lakes tour. Let yourself drift through the fantastic landscape, guided by the wonderful weather, marvel at the royal palaces and historic castles and enjoy the tranquillity of the beautiful lakes. The cosy boutique hotel DreiMädlerhaus will take care of your well-being and pamper you.

Immerse yourself in a wonderful cycling holiday full of magical sights, perfect cycle paths, beautiful landscapes and regional specialties. With every kilometre you cycle, notice how the everyday stress melts away in the Allgäu sun and you can fully devote yourself to relaxation.

The slightly hilly terrain will challenge you on the one hand and reward you with wonderful views on the other. But please also expect some steeper climbs. Most of the time you cycle on perfectly kept cycle paths and farm roads and sometimes on easily navigable natural paths. The perfect mix of relaxation, sporting activity, culture and cuisine.

  • Neuschwanstein Castle: Probably the most famous castle of the fairytale King Ludwig II is not only on the UNESCO World Heritage list, but is also one of the most popular sights in Germany! Don’t miss out on this piece of culture.
  • The Allgäu Lakes: There’s a reason why this rally is called the Allgäu Lakes. Use the wonderfully cool lakes of Bavaria as an opportunity for a refreshing dip, as a beautiful photo backdrop or simply as a uniquely beautiful resting place during your cycle tour.
  • The famous Allgäu cheese: Wonderfully flavoursome, gently aromatic, nutty-mild, or would you prefer smelly? The Allgäu is known and loved all over Germany for its cheese. Look forward to delicious tastings in one of the many cheese dairies.

Whether on your own bike or a perfectly maintained rental bike -  enjoy the seven-day tour through the wonderful Allgäu over varied stages between 30 and 55 kilometres. The level of difficulty and the feel-good factor are tailored to the needs of leisure cyc.ists – there is still enough time to visit and enjoy warm days by the lake.

Itinerary at a glance

Allgäu and Neuschwanstein Castle simply belong together! Your residence, the boutique hotel DreiMäderlhaus, is also enchanting. The Allgäu lakes invite you to swim on hot days, they are a feast for the eyes at any time.

Enjoy initial rays of sunshine either on the terrace of the hotel or during a stroll along the lakeside.

Bavaria’s fifth largest lake is on the agenda today. With the best view onto the surrounding mountains you leisurely cycle along Lake Forggensee. You enjoy the most stunning mountain view at the ‚Panoramastadel‘ located shortly before Lake Illasbergsee. Again and again you have wonderful opportunities to swim in the lake. Particularly idyllic is swimming in Lake Hegratsrieder See before you cycle via Füssen back to your accommodation.

On the tour you are accompanied by the impressive and wild-romantic Allgäu pre-alpine valleys. From Lake Weißensee you initially proceed to Pfronten and from there via dirt- and forest paths into the Vilstal-valley. Past the Kälberhofalpe-alp you reach the Tannheim valley, which is considered one of the most stunning high-alpine valleys of the Northern Alps. After that a comfortable long descent leads you through the Enge- and Achtal-valleys back to Pfronten and Lake Weißensee.

Along the lakeside of Lake Weißensee you cycle initially to Lake Alatsee and along the Faulenbach-stream to Füssen with its fascinating historic centre. You proceed along the trail of the Bavarian fairytale king to Hohenschwangau. Here Louis‘ most spectacular building, Neuschwanstein Castle, is towering located on a ledge over the valley. You will be no less impressed by Hohenschwangau Castle en route to Lake Alpsee, which features a marvellous location.

The Allgäu region is world-renowned for its cheese specialities. Today’s cycle tour connects five small cheese factories, which still make the Allgäu Emmentale- cheese and the Bergkäse-cheese from regional milk sources  in a traditional manner. A tasting of these culinary specialities is of course a must. The cycle path leads you past cow pastures and through farming hamlets to Seeg with its lovely Rococo-church. In addition to cuisine and culture another beautiful bathing spot awaits at the Schwaltenweiher-pond.

From Lake Weißensee you initially cycle to Lake Hopfensee with its castle ruin. The next highlights await with the castle at Hopferau and the pilgrimage church Mariahilf. With a view onto Germany’s highest situated castle grounds, Falkenstein castle ruin, you proceed through the Tyrolean Vilstal-valley past Vilsegg castle ruin. On your return journey you cycle along the Lech-cycle path towards Füssen and back to your hotel.
