The Alp Boden­see Hero


The chal­len­ge of your life starts in Schei­degg, one of the sun­niest pla­ces in Ger­ma­ny. The Alp Boden­see Hero rou­te takes you from Ger­ma­ny on Lake Con­stance to Aus­tria across the Rhi­ne to the foot of the migh­ty Sän­tis in Switz­er­land. Depen­ding on the rou­te (100 km, 200 km, 300 km) you make a detour to the Princi­pa­li­ty of Liech­ten­stein, you will mas­ter the steep turns of the Faschi­na­joch. You will return through the mys­ti­cal Bre­gen­zer­wald and the pic­tures­que All­gäu back to Scheidegg.

Uni­que pan­ora­mas, the Alps, chal­len­ging clim­bs, and spec­ta­cu­lar descents past lakes and rivers await you.

Chal­len­ge yourself and sup­port the Boden­see Children‘s Foun­da­ti­on with the Leisu­re pro­ject.

Cycle the Alp Boden­see Hero Chal­len­ge accord­ing to the GPS spe­ci­fi­ca­ti­ons. Upload your data to komoot and beco­me an Alp Boden­see Hero Finisher.
