sehr schöne Tour rund ums "schwäbische Meer"
Wunderschöne Gegend mit vielen hübschen Ortschaften unterwegs. Strecke fast ausschliesslich auf Radwegen. Gutes Equipment mit Sattel- und Lenkertasche. Sehr ausführliche Tourenbeschreibung mit Tipps zu den Sehenswürdigkeiten.

Documents et gpx à recevoir avant le départ. Un bravo pour l'organisation en plein coronavirus.
Le voyage a été très bien, les hôtels conformes à notre attente et le transport des bagages sans faille. Mais nous aurions aimé recevoir tous les documents bien avant notre départ. Le dossier imprimé pourrait aussi être plus simple, car il comporte des pages qui ne concernent pas notre voyage. Un bravo pour l'organisation en plein coronavirus!

Séverine P. CH | 06.10.2019
Très belle région côté Allemagne
Le début de semaine et la partie allemande du séjour étaient top. Le retour entre Bregenz et Staad (partie suisse) est décevante. Rarement au bord du lac, la piste cyclable côté Suisse se trouve souvent entre grandes routes/autoroutes et voies de chemin de fer. Le bord du lac est ultra bétonné ce qui n'est le cas ni en Autriche, ni en Allemagne, dont les villages et itinéraires cyclables sont superbes.

Schöne und abwechlungsreiche Rundfahrt mit dem Fahrrad
Die Rund tour um den Bodensee hat uns sehr gefallen. Sie ist nicht zu anstrengend und doch muss man immer weiter radeln um nach ca. 50 km am Ziel zu sein. In den grösseren Städten wie Schaffhausen hat man nicht so viel Zeit um sich umzuschauen. Vielleicht wäre ein Rad freier Tag gut. Besten Dank für die gute Organisation

Dommage d'aller dormir à 10kms de Stein am Rhein...Par contre très bon hôtel, nourriture excellente et très bon service!

Stein am Rhein est très populaire et quelque fois tout la village est complet. C’est pourquoi nous publions « Region Stein am Rhein » dans l’itinéraire de la voyage. Heureusement vous avez aimé votre hébergement dans ce endroit.

Gute Radweg-Markierung. Angenehm zu bewältigende Tagesetappen. Landschaftlich abwechslungsreich und kulturell sehr bereichernd.

Markus Weibel CH | 01.07.2016
Abwechslungsreich (Strecke/Hotels)
Etappenort Gailingen (Hotel Rheingold) zu weit vom Bodensee entfernt. Hotelzimmer sauber und zweckmässig eingerichtet. Hotelzimmer auf Strassenseite können leider nicht immer umgangen werden.Halbpension in den Etappenorten ist vielseitig und gut. Zum Wohl des Velofahrers wurde von A - Z alles getan. Für die Fitness ist der Fahrer aber selber zuständig.
