You leave Donauwörth/Rain and cycle to the market in Biberbach. Worth seeing is the pilgrimage church with its rococo style. The last part of today's distance brings you to the memorial stone "Via Claudia Augusta" at Langweid in the independent university town Augsburg. The puppet theater museum, where the marionette theatre in the "Augsburger Puppenkiste" is located, is worth visiting.Go for astroll and discoverthe charming corners and the many cultural highlights, as the Schaezlerpalais with its exceptionalart collection (incl.).
Today you firstlycycle to Königsbrunn, one of the youngest settlements in Bavaria. The archeological museum Königsbrunn presents regional findings of the pre-and early history till the modern time. In the centre of the city you can admire "Mercateum", the biggest walkin globe of the world. In Landsberg am Lech you will notice the well preserved townscape with its colourful row of houses.
Leaving Landsberg am Lech you will encounter Pfaffenwinkel and the flat country Lechfeld passes slowly to the hilly foothills of the Alps. We recommend you to cycle west of the Lech through the places Asch, Leeder and Denklingen. From a great distance you can see the 34 metres high tower of the katholic village church Denklingen from the 18thcentury. You will spend the night in Schongau. The beautiful old town disposes of an almost entirely preserved city wall.
You will cross the Lech and cycle to Peiting. Now you can choose between two variants. We recommend the route through Rottenbuch and Wildsteig, because the other route goes through small roads and hilly terrain. Through Wies with its magnificent pilgrimage church you will arrive in Schwangau. It is worth to make a detour over the castles Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau. The last destination of the bike tour along the Romantic Road is the city Füssen. Up on a hill of the old town dominates the gotic "Hohe Schloss" once the summer residence of the prince bishops of Augsburg. The big castle is one of the best preserved medieval castles in Bavaria.
For the most part, the route runs on small, quiet, paved roads, sometimes on paved bike paths or sandblasted. Between Würzburg and the Tauber Valley, you have the reckon with gradients. The Tauber Valley itself is again flat, with slight inclines. From Landsberg onwards the path is mostly asphaltic. Through the moraine landscape you come closer to the Alps.
