Illerradweg cycle trail
The Illerradweg cycle trail is 146 km of nature experience. A quality cycle route with a 4-star classification.
This has long been a hidden gem among Germany’s riverside cycle paths. Now the Illerradweg cycle trail from Oberstdorf to Ulm has been granted a 4-star classification as an ADFC quality route.
The trail begins against the magnificent backdrop of the Allgäu high alps, passes through the foothills and crosses the western part of Bavarian Swabia before the Iller joins the Bavarian Danube near Neu-Ulm. Along the way lie such popular destinations as the historic cities of Kempten and Memmingen, the Schwäbische Bauernhofmuseum (Swabian Farm Museum) at Illerbeuren, Castle Vöhlin in Illertissen and the two archaeological parks in Kempten and Kellmünz. Fresh beer and hearty regional dishes entice visitors into the many inns and Biergärten along the way. The advantage of a culinary Biergarten visit is that cyclists can tuck into their own snacks while keeping an eye on their bicycles and luggage at all times.
The standard signposting, 31 new information panels and rest areas with new furniture along the new main route of the Illerradweg cycle trail impressed the ADFC and raised it to 4-star cycle way status. The website www.illerradweg.de provides more detailed information of the highlights and places along the route.
