Sehr schöne Radtour, besonders der Pfälzer Teil
Besonders gut haben uns die Etappen in der Pfalz gefallen. Immer durch die wunderbaren Weinberge und die schönen Winzerorte! Diese Etappen waren zwar sehr hügelig, aber dank unserer Pedelecs hat uns das nichts ausgemacht. Die Hotels waren alle gut, die kleinen, individuellen Häuser gefielen uns am Besten. Lobend ist die trotz Coronsa sehr unkomplizierte und schelle Buchung zu erwähnen. Die schriftliche Tourenbeschreibung war nicht immer ganz eindeutig. Da wir zusätzlich die App genutzt haben, sind wir aber immer gut zurecht gekommen.

wunderschöne Radtour durch die Pfalz mit leckeren Weinen
Wir haben eine sehr schöne Woche mit unseren Fahrrädern (für etwas geübte Radfahrer auch ohne E-Bike machbar) erlebt und können diese Radtour nur weiterempfehlen. Die Tour führte uns durch viele Weinberge entlang der Weinstraße, urige Dörfer und auch sehenswerte Städte wie Speyer, Heidelberg und Worms. Die Reservierung in den Hotels und auch der Gepäcktransport erfolgten reibungslos. Wir konnten uns somit voll und ganz auf das Radfahren und die schöne Landschaft konzentrieren und unseren Urlaub genießen. Es bleiben uns unzählige schöne Momente und Eindrücke in Erinnerung.
