The Südbahn railway connects Ulm with Lake Constance, a lake shared with neighbouring Switzerland, opening up a beautiful region that invites you to enjoy extensive cycle rides. Along the main artery of the Upper Swabian rail network, you can immerse yourself in picturesque river valleys, cycle through quiet forests and discover enchanted moors. At Lake Constance, you can enjoy unforgettable moments on wonderful cycle paths with unique views. Historic towns with charming half-timbered houses, magnificent monasteries and pretty churches give the Tours along one of Württemberg's oldest railway lines that certain something extra.

In this Collection, we’ve put together seven varied Tours along the Ulm-Lindau route. The starting points of the circular Tours are all located at railway stations, so you can travel comfortably by rail. To take your bike with you on the train, it's best to buy a day ticket for local transport. If you’d rather leave your bike at home, simply hire one locally. To make sure you always find your way from the station to the saddle quickly, we show you where the nearest bike hire is in each Tour.

The starting points of the Tours are in Ulm, Biberach an der Riß, Aulendorf, Ravensburg, Meckenbeuren (or Friedrichshafen) and Lindau. From Ulm, you explore the river valleys of the Danube, Iller, Nau and Lone. From Biberach, you set off into the enchanted worlds of the Wilden Ried and the Federseemoor with its UNESCO World Heritage thatched wooden dwellings. Further south, near Aulendorf, you can explore the Wurzacher Ried and near Ravensburg you can immerse yourself in wild, romantic forests through which wild rivers like the Schussen rush. In the far south, you can explore the beautiful shores of Lake Constance from Meckenbeuren or Friedrichshafen, and Lindau.

At the end of the day, after your expedition, you can jump back on the Südbahn, to head back home on its climate-friendly, electric trains.
