This trip is particularly rewarding in spring because that’s the time that the Unterried presents itself as a bright blue sea of blossoms with millions of flowering irises. It’s a place in summer to cool down and enjoy a swim in the ‘Alte Rüttenen’ quarry lakes at the end of the trip.  The Illspitz, where the River Ill flows into the River Rhine, is impressive at any time of the year.
