Allgäu Royal Rides Weekend (Füssen)

Your break in the Alps – 29/04-1/05/2017

Long ago, King Ludwig II saw the merits of the placid Allgäu countryside in the Füssen area, so he built his world-famous castles with these stunning mountain backdrops. Neuschwanstein Castle, Linderhof and Hohenschwangau are highly popular with visitors to the area. This wonderful landscape is a winner with road cyclists, too, providing the attractions that you, as a biker, love. Climbs both gentle and tough, tranquil roads with picturesque scenery and views way off into the surrounding distance, e.g. from Ussenburg on the Forggensee and the mountains beyond.

In spring 2017, when Mother Nature is beginning to clothe herself in green, we shall experience the Allgäu from its attractive side. We shall show you the beautiful side of the area, including rides into the Pfaffenwinkel with its popular ascents of the Hohenpeißenberg and the Auerberg, a pleasant spin to the Pilgrim Church of Wies and the Ammer Saddle with the popular Plansee or a ride in the western Allgäu with the Königssträßchen. And, once we are back in our hotel in the centre of Füssen, we can relax with good food and some pampering.

A flying start - or building on the early season.
