You will be at the foot of the Martinswand and you will cycle through small villages and market towns to Stams where there is a baroque monastary (Zisterzienserstift). You continue cycling via Haiming to Imst. It is well worth going for a walk here as there are many fountains to see as well as a magnificent mountainous scenery.
Imst – Füssen/Schwangau approx. 55km
Bus transfer up to the Hahntenjoch situated at 2000m above sea level. If there is snow, the transfer will be via the Fernpass. Afterwards you have a wonderful descent to Elmen in the Lech valley. The wonderful mountainous landscape, the river and the town of Reutte all combine to make for a dream trip. Füssen, which is boxed in by great Alpine peaks and turquoise mountain lakes, promises you an entertaining stay.
Tour of the lakes approx. 30 km
It is possible to do a small cycle tour to Lake Bannwald and Lake Forggen. However, make sure you leave enough time to visit King Louis’ castles. Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau attract visitors from all over the world!
Füssen/Schwangau – Schongau approx. 50km
Both King Louis’ fairytale castles (situated within the Königswinkel) and the excavated Roman baths (at the valley station of the Tegelberg) are definitely worth a visit. The world famous Wies church is also highly worth a visit. In addition, you will also have great scenery whilst cycling to Schongau via Steingaden and Peiting.
Schongau – Landsberg am Lech approx. 35km
Today you get spectacular views of the Lech valley thanks to the slightly undulating route that you shall take. You can discover traces from the Roman times in Altenstadt, Hochenfurch and Epfach. The cycle path is great and runs all the way into Landsberg’s medieval centre. The historical town hall and the Bavarian gothic gate are must-sees for every visitor in this area.
Landsberg am Lech – Augsburg approx. 45 km
You cycle along the River Lech via Kaufering to Königsbrunn (lasting 11km this is the best retained section of the Via Claudia) and then you continue further on to the Fugger town of Augsburg with its famous Fuggerei dating back to the year 1516. There are also many memorials from all eras.
