Cycling tour in Swabia & Bavaria - Neuschwanstein

This bike tour leads along the language border between Swabia and Bavaria, across the gently hilly landscape of the foothills of the alps. Augsburg, a city made famous by Martin Luther and the Fugger family is the largest and most impressive city of this tour, whereas the Muranauer Moos offers a welcome “natural” counterpoint. The castles of Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau are certainly two of the highlights of this tour. The Lech cycling path follows the Roman road Via Claudia Augusta and allows for easy pedalling - but there are also some hilly sections on this tour.
