The tour takes us from Kempten through the hills of the Adelegg, which reach far into the Alpine foothills. Lively ups and downs, beautiful views and nice places to stop for a bite to eat, even the option of an optional ride, make the tour entertaining and varied. The tour mostly leads along scenic forest paths, only the beginning is more traily. At the end of the tour, many kilometres of descent await us through the varied pre-Alpine landscape of the Allgäu.

Single trails as far as the eye can see

For experienced and demanding mountain bikers, the Oberallgäu is the perfect region. Thick tyres and large suspension travel are recommended on the Falkenstein freeride trail route. The pre-Alpine Rottachberg mountain range hides several trails that allow different downhill variations from the Falkenstein, making the mountain ridge a great playground for mountain bikers. Other challenging trails can be found, for example, on the Kuhgehren Trail or the Palmweg.

Routes along cool mountain streams and with beautiful views

Mountain biking routes in the Oberallgäu often lead along cool mountain streams. The Panorama trail, for example, repeatedly encounters smaller streams on the descent from the World Cup hut in Ofterschwang.

Another route leads along the Ostrach river into the romantic Hinterstein valley and up to the Bärgündlealpe. On this tour, the Allgäu High Alps nature reserve shows its most beautiful side.

Beautiful views on varied trails are offered by the routes from Kempten through the Adelegg and over the Wirlingser Wald.

Biking around the mountain

On the long round trip around the Ifen, easy trails predominate, the panorama and the alpine meadows between Oberstdorf and the Kleinwalsertal valley inspire every passionate biker - as does the flowing and challenging trail from the Gerlachsattel down to the Alpe Melköde.

On the loop around the Grünten we also ride around a mountain. During the ride via the Dreiangelhütte and the Bildstöckle, bikers enjoy a magnificent view of the Oberallgäu Alps. For the way back, the freeride descent from the Bildstöckle is worthwhile. The way back down to the valley is full of verve via so-called "Hohlgassen", old Allgäu cart paths.

In the Upper Allgäu, the Nagelfluhkette Nature Park should not be forgotten. The mountain range of the same name is circumnavigated on various routes.
