If you love riding your mountain bike through picturesque landscapes with wide views, panoramic summits and delicious refreshments, then our 23 bike Tours in the beautiful Allgäu are ideal for you.

These Tours follow technically undemanding trails that are easy for all ability levels as long as you have a good basic fitness level. It’s best to take a close look at the distance and elevation gain of your favourite Tours to select the right trail for you. Some routes have gentle undulating terrain, whilst others include steep climbs and long uphill sections.

Even on easier Tours, you don’t have to worry about missing out – all routes have incredible panoramic views over the Allgäu and wonderful places to stop for refreshment, usually after a climb. In addition, some Tours lead by idyllic ponds, typical Allgäu villages and river meadows.

One thing is for sure: nature biking means you avoid main roads on all Tours and spend your time between lush meadows and shaded forests. So choose the Tours that suit you best and enjoy your time in the beautiful Allgäu.

If you want to spend several days cycling, the main nature biking route is ideal. In four stages, it takes you from Wangen in the Allgäu to Tyrol. You can find more information in our Collection: komoot.de/collection/1143898.
