Fuessen north along the Lech River

Neuschwanstein was about the most southern point reached on the bike trip. We turned north along the Lech River from Fuessen. This turned out to be a major route for cycling, with several national routes on the bike sign below.
One is the Via Claudia Augusta, which follows the Roman trading road that followed the River Lech. There were signs explaining that archeological excavations had uncovered Roman factories! The route also brought the early church missionaries, such as seen below.
Some lovely managed forests...
A jeweled church from the 1700's on a side road.
Many farms had extensive solar panels on their barns.
