Enjoy your first few hours in the breathtaking mountains and marvel at the surrounding peaks surrounding Lech am Arlberg.
In the morning, set out for Formarinsee, the source of the Lech River, and revel in the breathtaking view of the sparkling mountain lake. Your journey will take you through picturesque farmlands and lush mountain meadows, leading to the charming Walser village of Warth and onward to the picturesque village of Steeg in Tyrol.
Don't miss the opportunity for a side trip to Holzgau, where you can admire the historic Lüftl paintings on the facades of buildings. The first leg of your cycling adventure concludes at the heart of the Lech Valley, known as a bastion of traditional woodcarving.
Making a brief stop in Häselgehr is highly recommended, where you'll find a captivating parish church with remarkable furnishings that are sure to leave you in awe. Continue your journey, passing the Lechzopf, and arrive in Forchach, where a daring suspension bridge awaits those seeking an adrenaline rush.
As you cycle further, you'll cross the border into Bavaria. Your route leads you to the stunning Lech Falls in Füssen, a town famous for its royal castles, Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau, both of which are absolute must-see attractions.
Depart from the serene town of Füssen, tracing the shores of the picturesque Forggensee, its shimmering blue waters guiding your way through the breathtaking Alpine foothills.
As you glance back, the mountains gradually recede into the horizon. A perfect opportunity awaits at the tranquil Lechsee lake near Lechbruck, inviting you to pause and refresh by its shore. In Schongau, explore the remarkable historic old town, and conclude your day in a delightful beer garden.
Schongau, a former Bavarian border fortress, offers a glimpse into history with its walkable battlements along the town wall. This charming town bears witness to a rich past. Epfach, known for its Roman museum, and the splendid baroque pilgrimage church in Vilgertshofen beckon as enticing stops before you venture further toward the medieval heart of Landsberg.
Tucked along the wildly romantic riverbed, the historic town hall and the Gothic Bayerntor serve as the primary attractions of this picturesque town centre.
Embarking on a journey from Landsberg, your path unfolds over an 11 km stretch, traversing the finest-preserved segment of the renowned Via Claudia. En route, you'll pass through Königsbrunn and the historic Bavarian ducal town of Friedberg before arriving in Augsburg.
This cityscape is a captivating tapestry of architectural wonders spanning centuries. A must-visit is the Fuggerei, the world's oldest extant social settlement—a city within a city—offering a truly enriching experience
