Lakes and waterfalls
Plenty of small lakes and waterfalls – formed centuries ago by glaciers – are waiting to be discovered on your bicycle tour in the beautiful Allgäu region, which lies in both Baden-Württemberg and the neighboring province of Bavaria. The town of Kempten is the starting point of many routes, some leading all the way to Lake Constance or to the city of Augsburg. The landscape is dominated by gentle hills with the promise of easy climbs and speedy descents.

Along the route, you’ll see Lake Constance, Basel, Strasbourg, Cologne, Utrecht and Rotterdam. Those are all the arguments you’ll ever need to convince any bike lover to agree to cycling this route with you.
