After the lunch break in Biberach I cycle through a beautiful valley to Reute. There I follow a cycle path to Ingoldingen.

view

Once again it goes over a mountain. From the hill one has a beautiful view into the valley and on Ingoldingen. Two cyclists I meet there tell me that in clear weather you can see the Bernese Alps.


Steinhausen

In Steinhausen I rejoin the Way of St. James and admire the largest village church in Germany, a magnificent baroque building with rococo decorations.

Inside, the oval building impresses with its opulent interior and colorful frescoes, on which there is much to discover.


I follow the Way of St. James, which is also the bike path. But then the Jakobsweg turns into the forest on a stony path uphill and I stay on the bike path. This is suddenly over and I have to drive on the main road to Bad Waldsee.

Collegiate Church

Baroque Collegiate Church of St. Peter

Bad Waldsee is a charming town with medieval houses in the town center. I stay at the Garni Hotel 'Altes Tor' (Bett & Bike).

After the shower there is still time for a walk around the town and to the (somewhat small) lake.


Hl. Geist Hospital Hl. Geist Hospital Gate

The Hospital of the Holy Spirit is one of the oldest institutions in the city. Since 1300 it was a hospital, old people's home, orphanage and poorhouse.

The neo-Gothic facade with the bell tower was built in the 19th century.

In 1586, 17 women from Waldsee were sentenced to death here and burned as witches.
