Today you have the choice: Picturesque runs the 80-kilometres-long valley route of Regnitz bike path through cities and small villages and follows in doing so on side roads and farm roads the loops of river Regnitz. Parallel to that the 70-kilometres-long canal route heads you directly along Main-Danube-canal. Both routes can be combined and shortened by train. Aim of your stage is Bamberg, one of the “capital cities of beer”.

The first part of today’s stage leads you then primal a part along yesterday’s tour course. Until Hirschhaid the route can be shortened by train (not included). After Hirschhaid you follow the valley of stream Aisch to Neustadt.
