Bike Touring Highlight (Segment)
Bicycle tour on asphalt road to the origins of Ostrach. An ideal bike tour as a starting point for ambitious outdoor enthusiasts or to work out after work.
We start our 16 km bike tour through the Ostrachtal in the middle of the manageable 600-person village of Hinterstein at the local bus stop. We first follow the Giebelstrasse with a view of the Allgäu Alps downhill briefly, then we continue to the Ostrachtal without any noteworthy height difference. After a first climb, we pass the Konstanzer Jägerhaus, which also offers a first stop.
We follow the steadily rising asphalt road, which infallibly brings us closer to our goal, the gable house, until we finally pass the so-called "Auelekraftwerk". Now the most strenuous and steepest climb is waiting for us, namely the Eisenbreche. Once at the top we can enjoy a breathtaking view of the stream bed of the Ostrach, which has meandered through the mountain for thousands of years.We have already done most of the things and leave a small chapel on our right hand side until we finally see the gable house on the tar road - always following the Ostrach. Once there, a rustic stop for refreshments awaits us.We cycle back to Hinterstein on the asphalt road.Author TipsThe gabled house is an excellent starting point for various tours in the Allgäu Alps. With a little luck, the eagles can also be admired in their nearby nest.

In Hinterstein, the parking fees are now quite high (€ 10). It is much cheaper a little before Hinterstein on the left at the mill / saw for 3, - €. Before that, on the right-hand side of the bridge, € 5 is due. Anyone who travels with the e-bike and still has 40% battery power should still enjoy the gable house up to the Schwarzenberghütte and enjoy the wonderful view. The food is also good up there, everything fresh and homemade.
