Itinerary

Your cycling holiday starts in pretty Schwäbisch Hall. The lovely timber-framed houses give Schwäbisch Hall its own special charm. Visit the town marketplace where architectural styles from all kinds of eras are united. Here you'll see impressive buildings, such as the Baroque town hall and the Roman-Gothic Church of St. Michael.

Your first section takes you to Mulfingen. On the way you pass the town of Langenburg. Langenburg Castle rises here over the Jagst Valley on a ridge. The cycle path takes you right along the Jagst to Mulfingen. The Jagst winds its way through the town in harmony with its time-honoured houses. First and foremost, in Mulfingen comes enjoyment of the peace and the friendliness of the people.

Today, the Jagst takes you to Jagsthausen. You cycle right along the green banks of the riverside. A typical characteristics of the river are the many turns and bends it takes through the limestone countryside. Jagsthausen was once the home of Knight Götz von Berlichingen. There are two more castles in Jagsthausen, the red and the white castle. In the red castle today, you'll find a country guesthouse and beer garden. Enjoy the historic atmosphere of this rustic castle cuisine.

After breakfast, you cycle along the Jagst to the much bigger river Neckar. Already from afar you'll see the impressive silhouette of the town of Bad Wimpfen. The town is home to many historic buildings. Especially striking are the blue tower, stone house and palatine church. It's now just a short section to cycle until today's destination. In Bad Friedrichshall, visit the salt mine and go on a tour to learn all about the history of salt.

You pedal right along the Kocher back to Jagsthausen. The river landscape features expansive meadows, fields, farmland and green woods. The Kocher Valley is not quite as windy as the Jagst Valley, but the flora and fauna are very similar. Once again you are a guest in Jagsthausen. Visit the Roman bath, a small open-air museum which shows the reconstructed foundations of a Roman bath. In Götzenburg Castle Hotel, modern day and Medieval times merge to produce a very special atmosphere.

The last section of your cycling holiday takes you back to Schwäbisch Hall. Most of the time you'll be cycling along wooded valley slopes of the deeply cut Kocher Valley. On your way you pass Braunsbach with Castle Braunsbach. In Schwäbisch Hall pretty timber framed houses line the streets up the hill. You won't forget this lovely town.

Your bike tour ends after breakfast.

Tour character

Along the rivers mostly flat, when you change from one valley to the other you always cross a chain of hills. There are some climbs to overcome.
