The Kögelweiher is almost an insider tip for nature lovers. Not far away is the Attlesee with swimming.
The castles and palaces - rarely has a tour earned its name as much as this one. Again and again you will pass impressive castles and palaces or enjoy a fantastic view from the bike path.

From here, the path leads you to the famous royal palaces Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein - a backdrop, as from the fairy tale.

For example, the Oggenrieder Weiher or the Bärensee invite you to take a bath, while in the old town of Kaufbeuren you can take a break for a stroll.
The Oberdorfer Radlrunde leads from the northern Marktoberdorf first direction Loretto Chapel, from where you have a beautiful view of the mountains.

Back in Marktoberdorf, a detour to the Kurfürstenallee with a wonderful mountain view is worthwhile.
