We start our tour at the Birkenallee car park and can cycle the first 14 km via Burgberg and Sonthofen to Bad Hindelang. Then we cycle on a steady incline over the Jochpass to Oberjoch. The road has numerous hairpin bends, which is why the entire ascent has no too steep passages and we have quickly mastered the 360 metres of altitude. At the end of the pass is the lookout pulpit, to which we can make a short detour. There we have a wonderful view of Bad Hindelang and the Allgäu Alps.
Then we continue our tour via Oberjoch and Unterjoch to Wertach. During the rapid descent, we have the opportunity to let the Allgäu landscape take its effect on us.
We then cycle uphill for another stretch in the direction of Adelharz and catch sight of the 1738 m high Grünten. This view remains with us until the end of the tour.
We continue downhill to Kranzegg and cycle along the cycle path to Rettenberg. In the village we cycle right past the Gasthof Engel, where we can take a leisurely break.
Finally we arrive at the Gasthof Engel.
Finally, we return in the direction of Immenstadt to our starting point at the Birkenallee car park.
