Itinerary

Your cycling holiday should get off to a start with a tour of Emperor Heinrich II's town. He was the one with the vision, who built and loved Bamberg, and lies here, buried in in the cathedral in a sarcophagus by Tilman Riemenschneider. It is with reason that the entire Bamberg historic quarter was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Maybe a short tour of this town of seven hills and a last look at the stunning view from the look-out tower of graceful Geyerwörth Castle before you leave Bamberg. Friends of a good brew will enjoy today especially. You cycle through Hauptsmoorwald Forest and while you're on the Beer Cellar Tour you'll get to know up to 15 beer cellars, guesthouses and breweries. A beautiful-countryside-beautiful-beer fusion!

The Main cycle path takes you from "Beer Franconia" through vineyards to "Wine Franconia" Look forward to a good drop! Via Zeil am Main, a small town of half-timber-framed houses and wine - your route takes you along the edge of the Hassberg mountains to Hassfurt to the parish church of St. Kilian with works by Tilman Riemenschneider. Also visit the impressive Kreuztal Mariaburghausen Monastery before cycling back to Bamberg!

Today, the train (ticket not included) takes you to the basket-making town of Lichtenfels, where the Main slowly starts to twist and turn. Banz Abbey greets you from the mountain as does the the world-famous Basilica of the Fourteen Holy Helpers. Via Bad Staffelstein with its lovely marketplace and elegant town houses, you cycle back to Bamberg.

Your last day covers quite a distance! First, you cycle to Burgebrach with its historic town centre and then to the Baroque Weissenstein Castle in Steigerwald, which you get to know in more detail on a tour. Cycling through Rauhen and Reichen Ebrach valleys to pedal back to Bamberg.

After breakfast, you start your individual return journey home.

Tour character

The routes along the rivers are flat, so there are hardly any gradients to overcome. In the hinterland the topography is slightly hilly. You cycle mostly on asphalted paths, partly on natural surfaces as well as little used side roads.
