E-bike for relaxed bike tours

From lake to lake, over gentle hills, always with a view of the mountains - a bike tour in Bavaria’s Allgau region is pure fun.

Thanks to the central location of the Altstadthotel "Zum Hechten" you have rental facilities almost on your doorstep.

E-bikes don’t exactly pedal themselves, but assist pedaling with an environmentally-friendly electric motor that provides up to three times the power compared to physical pedaling alone. This is the perfect way for leisure cyclists to take on long trails and steep mountain paths without much effort or strain on joints. E-bikes transform your vacation in Bavaria into a modern cycling vacation in Germany.

A trip on an e-bike is an experience for everyone, no matter your age or condition. E-bikes make it possible to take on longer stretches and trails or conquer steep paths without getting winded or exhausted. Plus, e-bikes are good for the environment. However, riders still have to pedal, ensuring that an e-bike ride is, in fact, healthy and good for the body. They are easy to operate and you just need a little instruction before you can hop on and pedal away. The batteries last for a tour of 25-37 miles.

But please consider the higher weight of an e-bike, especially on downhill passages, as well as the tendency to faster speeds. Always plan enough reserves, choose the trips according to your skill level, increase moderately and be considerate of others. Safety is always the top priority!
