Starting point of your journey is the university city Tübingen

You leave the lively city and cycle along the valley. On your way are some beautiful lakes where you can take a bath. You pass Nürtingen where poetry Hölderlin went to school. In Plochingen the Hundertwasser tower is well-worth seeing. Esslingen is one of the cities which was not destroyed during war – enjoy the especial historic flair.

Today you can try the health resort in Stuttgart-Canstatt. You follow river Neckar through a lovely landscape and pass emperors summer residence Ludwigsburg. Neckar valley is the birth place of poets and thinkers – you will feel this especially in Marbach, birth place of Friedrich Schiller. In the museum you can learn more about the poet.

Through picturesque vineyards along the river loops to Lauffen where you can taste a gulp of Katzenbeißer. Another centre of winegrowing and wine-trade is Heilbronn. The big city offers a mixture of historic and modern buildings. You continue along romantic Burgenstraße to Neckarsulm.

Well-worth seeing is NSU-museum with its historic two-wheelers and cars. Enjoy the amazing views while cycling to Bad Wimpfen with its numerous towers. While passing vineyards and forests you see fortress Hornberg where once Götz of Berlichingen lived. Eberbach was coined through handicraft, a special feature was the mining of sand.

Sehr schöner Radweg
Betreuung haben wir vor Ort nicht gebraucht deshalb hier keine Bewertung.Ausgesprochen freundliches und nettes Personal in allen Unterkünften. Die Strecke hatte doch insgesamt mehr Steigungen als vermutet - aber mit Ebike gut zu bewältigen. In den größeren Städten Stuttgart Heilbronn etwas spärliche Ausschilderung der Radwege zum Teil auch wegen aktueller Baumaßnahmen bzw Bundesgartenschau. Eteas betrüblich war die Tatsache,daß in fast allen kleineren Städtchen oder Dörfern kein Cafe o.ä. offen oder vorhandes war, deshalb vorher eindecken. Warum so viele Gasthäuser geschlossen waren , war nicht feststellbar evtl. noch keine Saison oder Personalmangel ? Insgesamt sehr schöne Radtour .

Vielen lieben Dank für Ihre freundliche Bewertung! Wie schön, dass Sie so begeistert von unserer Radtour waren. Es tut mir leid, dass die Beschilderung an manchen Stellen etwas karg war. Wie Sie richtig bemerkt haben, kann das mit Baustellen zu tun haben. Wir bemühen uns zwar, die Beschilderungen immer so aktuell wie möglich zu halten, oft sind aber unsere Gäste vor uns da um gewisse Mängel bemerken. Diese werden aber natürlich so schnell wie möglich behoben. Vielen Dank für Ihre Anregung!

Hochwasser-Tour-Neckar
Aufgrund von tagelangen Regentagen waren einige Radwege nicht befahrbar. Aber die angefahrenen Orte waren alle sehr interessant. Die Etappen von Neckarsulm bis nach Heidelberg sind landschaftlich sehr schön. Zu den sehenswerten Orten zählt natürlich Heidelberg, aber auch Bad Wimpfen und Ludwigsburg.
