Palatinate round tour sporty

Through grapevines and the Rhine plain – SPORTY.

Where do the almond trees, cherry trees, and apple trees bloom while elsewhere there is still snow on the fields? Where do kiwis, figs, grapes and tobacco grow on the roadside? Where do people feel so comfortable that their hospitality even became legendary? By the Rhine and Neckar rivers and by the German wine road! Enjoy the mild Mediterranean climate and the varied bike routes, good food and many cultural highlights along the rivers Rhine and Neckar and along the German wine route.

Itinerary

Your holiday starts with a tour information meeting and bike fitting in the secret wine capital of Germany, where you can visit the city’s winding alleyways, mighty abbey church and the Elwedritschenbrunnen fountain.

Sample hotel: Panorama

The route will lead you through romantic wine villages with unique atmospheres. In the historic fortified city, Landau, you can visit the medieval market hall (Altes Kaufhaus) on the large main square (Rathausplatz) and enjoy the view of the Rhine Valley from the castle Landeck. At the end of today’s stage, we recommend visiting the Baroque palace, the historic Inn “Engel”, and the Westwall museum.

Sample hotel:

Pfälzer Wald

 

Today, you will pass the wine gate in Schweigen and get to the Alsace city of Wissembourg with its former Benedictine abbey. You will enjoy a leisurely bike ride through the forest Bienwald and the valley Lautertal to the river Rhine. At the end of your tour, you will get to the impressive baroque residence in Rastatt.

Sample hotel: Ibis Styles

After cycling a very nice part of the route along the river Rhine, you will get to the residential city of Karlsruhe with its castle and pyramid. Then, you will cycle through the largest nature reserve of the Pfalz region – the Hördter Rheinauen – and get to the former fortified city Germersheim. The river Rhine will then take you to the imperial city of Speyer and its impressive cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Sample hotel: Am Wartturm

The famous ensemble of palace and palace gardens in Schwetzingen is just a few kilometers away and is certainly another highlight of the tour. The tour continues through the Rhine plain to Heidelberg, the seat of the oldest German university. Visit the famous palace complex and the unique old town directly on the Neckar. Follow the Neckar to Ladenburg. The many half-timbered houses create a unique ambience. Through extensive forest areas in the Rhine plain, you follow the route to the old imperial city of Worms (legendary cathedral).

Sample hotel: Asgard

Today, you will cycle along the river Neckar to Ladenburg, where you can trace two millennia of cultural history. In the old imperial city of Worms, you can visit the imperial cathedral of St Peter, the Luther memorial, or the largest Jewish cemetery in Europe. Then, you will cycle via the region called “Balcony of the Pfalz” to the city where you started your tour - Neustadt an der Weinstraße.

Sample hotel: Panorama

Tour character

In the vineyards hilly terrain with mostly short climbs, here the stage lengths have been chosen to be a little shorter. Flat route with longer stages in the Rhine plain. Mainly you are on cycle paths and farm roads, mostly asphalted or easily navigable natural paths, shorter sections sometimes on gravel.

Radtour Pfalz
Schöne Tour mit sehr guter Beschilderung. Nur wenig auf viel befahren Straßen. Streckenlänge ist gut gewählt. Am Anfang sehr flach die letzte Etappe hat einige Hügel. Bis auf das Hotel in Heidelberg waren Alle anderen Hotels und Leistungen gut bis sehr gut. Der Gepäcktransport hat reibungslos geklappt. Fazit: empfehlenswert

Pfälzer Radrundfahrt
Radeln durch wunderschöne Weingärten, große Gastfreundschaftlichkeit, strahlend blauer Himmel, toller Service (Gebäcktransfer, Toureninfo, Reiseunterlagen,…) all dies sind meine Erinnerung an eine sportliche Woche in der Pfalz. Auf Grund der langen Etappe am 4. u. 5. Tag ist die Tour nur für sportliche Radfahrer geeignet. Großes Lob an die Veranstalter!
