There are hardly any metres to climb on the entire tour. With a few exceptions, the trail runs almost always on level ground along the Iller and ends at the Illersprung, where the Iller forms from the Breitach, Stillach and Trettach rivers.
From Kempten station you can reach the water in five minutes, which is where you will be cycling most of the time. The Iller cycle path is particularly nice to cycle on sunny days, as you can even swim in the river in many places. There are also many barbecue areas where you can make a campfire.
Right next to Fischen is the oak forest. There you can watch and feed squirrels at any time of the year. In winter, if you are lucky, you can see them foraging in the snow. The animals are very used to humans and eat from your hand. If you hold the food a little higher, they even climb up your leg. It is worth visiting, especially with children.
