Reason 1: Simple route guidance without big hills.
Particularly on the trip from Strasbourg to Mainz, pleasure cyclists will get their money’s worth. The routes are easier to master and lead through charming places. Numerous places to stop offer opportunities for sightseeing. In addition, the mild climate in Alsace, Baden and the Palatinate is ideal for a cycling holiday. In this way, the rich culture of the French and German cities can be better experienced.
Reason 2: The Imperial City of Worms
The city of Worms is not only well known for the medieval Nibelung legend, but also as a Lutherstadt. The two queens Kriemhild and Brünhild once had a bitter argument about who should enter the cathedral first. Today the city has become a tourist magnet. In addition to the Martin Luther monument, the oldest Jewish cemetery in Europe and the cathedral from the 12th Century, the old houses and market square are also worth seeing. The best thing is to see the historic city for yourself.
Reason 3: An unmistakable amount of castles and palaces
Between Bingen and Rüdesheim in the south and the Siebengebirge in the north there are an incredible 60 medieval castles, baroque castles and fortresses. And you are right in the middle of this landscape, always passing by bike. Above all, the diversity of the buildings from different eras makes every art-loving heart beat faster.
Reason 4: The Cologne – Dusseldorf section
In addition to the sophisticated Rheinauhafen, the cosy old town and the magnificent cathedral in the south, this stage of the Rhine Cycle Path is a highlight. It starts off green and lush on the right-hand side bank of the Rhine, north of Monheim in the middle of the Urdenbach Kämpe. In Neuss the museum on the island of Hombroch is waiting. If you go down the stairs at the end of the ticket booth, you will enter the floodplain landscape of the Erft, one of the most charming locations in Europe. Art is a thread through vibrant Düsseldorf, you will find a vibrant art scene there.
