Properties

The fine cycle route from the previous day continues. The signposting and marking (with yellow arrows on the tarmac) is so good that no help to keep the track is needed.

Remarks

Short stage that allowed a visit at a water park and once again to Constance, respectively plus a game of minigolf. After 37 km our bike holiday ended at the station of Stein on the Rhine after a short visit to the town centre on the other side of the Rhine.

From there a train ride to Basel Bad railway station with an interchange at Schaffhausen, followed by 4 km cycling to Weil on the Rhine. The next day we went by car home to Odense.
