The cycling holiday along the Danube river starts in Donaueschingen, characterized by the baronial Fürstenbergische residence.
The cycle route along the Danube river leads along flat paths through a region called Baar. After Tuttlingen, the valley slowly narrows and you will enjoy cycling to Beuron in Baden-Württemberg for its famous Benedictine monastery.
The bike route leads through the Danube breakthrough, where the Danube river and the cycle path lead to Sigmaringen. Enjoy an interesting guided tour of the residence palace which still is inhabited today.
Cycle along the Danube river to Zwiefaltendorf where OO TOURISTIK recommends a side trip to the Benedictine monastery with its beautiful baroque and rococo architecture.
Today, you will be leaving the river cycling through the Danube Valley to Blaubeuren to today's final destination, Ulm, with the world highest church tower. For a short version, you can also cycle directly along the Danube river to Ulm.
The bike tour today passes between Ulm and Dillingen through well-kept villages. You can visit the pilgrimage church in Elchingen and the rococo-style Church of Our Lady in Günzburg.
The villages are mainly located somewhat off the beaten track on hills protected from the river floodwaters. Those who wish can take a break from cycling in one of the well-maintained villages.
