Beginning and ending in Ulm, it takes you to Ochsenhausen, Wangen, Aulendorf and Bad Buchau. Culture fans will delight in the many places of interest along the way. Enjoyable hours can be whiled away in the restaurants and inns serving Swabian cuisine, the little cheese dairies in the Allgäu and the numerous local, traditional breweries. During the tour you can ease your aching muscles in the many spas. The long tradition of Upper Swabia's spas owes its origins to a natural remedy – the peat mud of the moorlands that you'll encounter on your trip. The cycle route leads through the middle of the Wurzacher Ried and to the Federsee Ried marshes. Those who also combine the Upper Swabia-Allgäu Route with the Danube-Lake Constance Route will find so many possibilities that one cycle tour will definitely not suffice to explore them all.
