February 11, 2018
With a view of the shimmering Lake Constance and the mighty Alpine chain behind it, you pass historically grown cities that shine with all kinds of sights.Following the river Obere Argen you cycle from Wangen back out into the rural hill country. The first worthwhile stop is Neukirch, from where you can take a detour to Achberg Castle. From Oberrussenried the landscape changes: The forest strips loosen up and make space for fruit growing. Apples are primarily harvested between the charming villages, which benefit from the mild maritime climate and the sun-drenched southern exposure. In addition, pears, plums and also hops, which are grown in the region on around 1,200 hectares, ripen.The city of Tettnang spreads out in this romantic corner of the world, with the deep blue Lake Constance shimmering towards you. The silhouette of the New Palace, built between 1712 and 1720, is very impressive. Behind the old walls, the splendid Bacchus Hall, the imposing staircase and the palace chapel underline the splendid court rulings of the Counts Montfort-Tettnang.The "Hop City" welcomes its guests with magnificent town houses from the 17th and 18th centuries, which crowd close to the gate lock. In the Tettnang Hop Museum you can experience how much the region has dedicated itself to the cultivation of this plant, which is so important for beer brewing.In a scenic drive, it goes via Meckenbeuren to the stage destination Markdorf, which spreads out at the foot of the wooded, 754 meter high Gehrenberg. The “Pearl of Linzgau” can best be explored on foot. The church of St. Nikolaus, the bishop's castle and the historic wall towers are particularly attractive. We recommend the Hotel Wirthshof and the Gasthaus Bürgerstuben to stay overnight.You can find more information about the fourth stage atoberschwaben-tourismus.de/touren/oberschwaben-allgaeu-radweg-etappe-4-von-wangen-ueber-tettnang-nach-markdorf-d522ea647d.
