The Iller Cycling Route- skirting the Iller river
Enjoy the enchanting natural landscape on your bike tour between Oberstdorf and Ulm. As you cycle uphill towards the Alps you can enjoy the impressive Alpine panorama or cycle downhill towards Ulm, with the aim of seeing and perhaps even climbing the highest church tower in the world.
No matter which direction you take, the four-star ADFC Quality Route promises top-class cycling pleasure.
The Iller cycling route has a feeder route to Memmingen city centre, so you can reach the city quickly and easily.
The highlights of this route, in addition to lively Memmingen with its charming old town and colourful cultural offerings, are Ulm, for example, whose Gothic cathedral tower rises almost 162 metres into the sky. Maria Steinbach will surprise you with its magnificent pilgrimage church.
Where the Iller breaks through near Oberkotten, the river has carved a bend in the bare rock.
You can admire this spectacle from the specially built lookout point. Kempten beckons visitors with its fantastic Alpine panorama and the well-preserved 2,000-year-old town. The end of the route at Oberstdorf will impress you with the mighty peaks of the Allgäu Alps, and of course, the ski jumps, which offer regular guided tours.
The Iller Cycling Route can also be used to connect the Danube Cycling Route to the Alps or the Lake Constance-Königssee Cycling Route.
