Main, Spessart and Tauber Valley

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.

Itinerary

Rothenburg ob der Tauber is regarded as the epitome of German Romanticism and abroad as a prototype of a medieval German town. Take a stroll through the old town guided by an „original“ night watchman.

You follow the Tauber river and cross a mountain range on an old railway line. Down to the Main valley to Ochsenfurt which is enclosed by a well-preserved medieval fortification.

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.

Upstream along the Tauber you cycle through more vineyards, passing Tauberbischofsheim and the romantic city of Bad Mergentheim before you get to Weikersheim.

In Creglingen you can visit the „Lindleinturm“, an example for rural life in the 18th century. Another very specialmuseum on you way is the thimble museum.

Tour character

On the second, fifth and sixth day the route is slightly hillier.
