A magnificent gravel path meanders through the idyllic valley of the Iller. On one side the splashing water, on the other the fresh green alpine meadows. Again and again you cross the river over various bridges on which you stop to enjoy the particularly good view of the river and the impressive mountain panorama in the background. What a setting for a bicycle tour!

Far away from the traffic and the hectic pace of civilization, the Illerradweg leads you from the origin of the Iller near Oberstdorf to the mouth of the Danube in Ulm. 150 kilometres of pure nature, where you can take a deep breath. Garnished with just the right amount of culture and entertainment that you will experience in the villages and towns worth seeing on the route. Between river bends and cow pastures you can stop again and again at picturesque farms, churches with typical onion towers and towns with historic buildings. Visit the region's monasteries and enjoy the silence. Find out about the history of the Allgäu in its exciting museums. And enjoy the comfort that the many cosy accommodations on the route offer especially for cyclists.

In this collection we present the Illerradweg in three stages. The cycle path was chosen by the ADFC as a quality four-star cycle route and praised especially for its great, low-traffic route guidance and its good tourist infrastructure. So you'll find plenty of bed+bike accommodation on the way — hosts who have specially adapted to the needs of cyclists and who welcome you especially. So the perfect night's rest at the end of a stage is guaranteed. If you'd rather ride the stages individually, that's no problem either, as all stage locations are well connected to the railway network. Every day you can expect around 50 kilometres and thanks to the mostly flat (or slightly sloping) route, they are also absolutely feasible for occasional cyclists. If it gets a bit strenuous, there are always nice opportunities to rest and rest at the edge of the track — from a simple bench to a bathing lake with sunbathing lawn. The route mainly leads over gravel and gravel roads, only very rarely over asphalt. This means that some passages may have to be bypassed after thunderstorms or during floods. A real nature experience cycle path — we wish you lots of fun exploring it!
