Main, Spessart & Tauber valley

individual cycle tour | 7 days / 6 nights

The most beautiful tour in Franken.

Start and destination of this circular tour is the highlight: Rothenburg ob der Tauber. You cycle from the gentle Tauber Valley on the romantic Main river and pass the impressive residential town of Wurzburg and many small timber-frame towns, forts, castles and monasteries. Wine-makers produce excellent wines here and lovers of beer will also find what they are looking for. Discover Francian hospitality here in this border area between Bavaria and Baden-Wurttemberg. Mostly along cycle paths and quiet farm paths. A few sections are along quiet roads.

Take a stroll through Wurzburg and visit the majestic Residence. Cycle through vineyards to Gemunden or Rieneck.

Follow the Main to Wertheim, located at the confluence of the Main and Tauber rivers. Enjoy the view over the landscape you have crossed from the remains of an old castle.
