On the Mostindien Tour you can drive with perfect panoramic view along the Apple Path - across Thurgau. There is a lot to discover. The offer ranges from culinary pleasures to interesting experience paths, museums and castles.

The tour starts in Arbon where the company Saurer once wrote industrial history. Today these interesting stories can be explored in the museum of the same name. Then it goes further to Wiedehorn, where you can relax in the country inn Seelust or in the local seaside resort and in Romanshorn technic fans enjoy the Locorama Railway Experience World .

The tour leads further along Bodensee past the seaside resort, the lake restaurant Schiff in Kesswil and the Sunnehüsli. All three will offer a wonderful cool down. A short trip to the Show and Teaching Garden in Güttingen and the Apple Path in Altnau are worthwhile, as both offer a lot of information about apples and fruit growing.

The route continues at the Cultural Trail in Münsterlingen further to Kreuzlingen, where many cultural highlights can be explored as well. The Seemuseum in Seeburgpark shows the history of fishing and navigation and in the monastery church of St. Ulrich a replica of the Passion of Christ with 250 Swiss stone pine wood statues can be viewed. Finally the rented bicycles can be returned at the train station.
