For chocolate lovers, don't miss a tour of the Suchard chocolate factory where the famous "Milka" (the purple chocolate you find in every Austrian store) is produced.

The bike trail follows the Ill river to Feldkirch with its medieval town center and the majestic Schattenburg castle. Following the Rhine river north, you will eventually get into Bregenz, known for ist summer music festival perfomances on a floating stage on Lake Constance. From Bregenz you will connect to the international Lake Constance Loop, allowing you to visit Germany and Switzerland as well.
