Start in the centre of Tannheim to Grän, then downhill to Pfronten in Ostallgäu and back to Tyrol. Through Vils and Musau, further in the middle of the Lechauen to Lechaschau on the B198 turn right to Weißenbach am Lech. Before the Johannes Bridge turn right into Schwarzwasser and continue to Vorderhornbach to the first refreshment station. In Martinau turn right onto the cycle path, continue over the Klimmbrücke bridge in Elmen to Häselgehr and through Elbigenalp on the B198 towards Bach, continue to Holzgau and at the end of the village you will reach the turning point. Follow the cycle path until you reach the second refreshment station at Stockacher Hof. Back on the B198 the route leads to Bach, there turn right onto the cycle path towards Untergrünau, past Elbigenalp to the Grießauer bridge. From there back on the B198 through Häselgehr to Weißenbach to the third refreshment stop. Then enter the roundabout, exit in the direction of Tannheimer Tal and via the Gaichtpaß along the B199 back to Tannheim.

Start in Tannheim, in the village centre to the church through the village and at the exit Berg in the direction of Innergschwend to Grän/Lumberg. There turn left onto the L261 through the Engetal downhill to Pfronten until the main road, in Pfronten Steinach. There turn right and follow the sign Vils/Reutte. After the border crossing through the small town of Vils and further on to Stegen and turn right onto the L69 towards Musau, after Roßschläg/Bärenfalle onto the cycle path towards Oberletzten (motor vehicle ban) and in the middle of the Lechauen to Lechaschau.

There, at the roundabout, go straight on into the Lech Valley, before turning right just before the Johannis Bridge onto the cycle path into the Schwarzwasser (no motor vehicles allowed). The single-lane road rises slightly there and leads into the forest, where the cycle path runs along the Lech river. Scenically wonderful impressions and a diversified road until Stanzach, where the cycle path is left again and the village Vorderhornbach (1st refreshment stop after 54 km) is passed. Continue to Martinau, where you turn right onto the cycle path towards Klimmbrücke near Elmen and continue along the cycle path to Häselgehr. There the route continues for one kilometre on the B198 before the village of Häselgehr is bypassed on a very nice cycle path and is then returned to the B198.
