Take your time where the good wine grows…something you’ll fully agree with after taking this tour. Excellent vineyards as well as a mild climate, culinary delights and a number of cultural highlights. On this tour you cycle through vineyards, along idyllic rivers, through medieval streets and past magnificent castles and palaces. And after an eventful day of activity, you can look forward to a new, charming place every day…perfect for this wonderful area!

The tour starts in the dreamy wine town of Bad Dürkheim, home of the largest wine barrel in the world. Start your journey with a good glass of Riesling, which you will find in abundance here. After all, the Palatinate is the most important wine-growing region in Germany and is especially known for its fine Riesling. This fact follows you along the entire cycle tour. You cycle past the imperial cathedral Speyer, to the university town of Heidelberg and on to the imperial city of Worms, before arriving back in Bad Dürkheim after an enjoyable week.

Wild and romantic vineyards, dreamy landscapes, historical cultural sites and excellent wine await you wherever you go. Cycle with pleasure from stage to stage and enjoy the exotic flair of the Palatinate to the full. The best thing about this tour? Arriving at one of our carefully selected Charm-Hotels! Let yourself be pampered!

  • Heidelberg: In the middle of the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region lies the so-called ‘City of Science’, which is not only known for its universities, but also because of its enchanting cityscape.
  • Kaiserdom Speyer: This cycle tour is something special, because it is the only tour that includes an overnight stay in the beautiful city of Speyer with its breathtaking Kaiserdom.
  • Foodie tip: If you are planning your cycle tour in September, you must plan a detour to the world’s largest wine festival, the Dürkheimer Wurstmarkt.

Fantastic cycle paths, flat side streets and only a few climbs in the vineyards form the tour character of the cycle tour Rhine & Vines with Charm. Overall, the seven-day cycle tour through the Palatinate is considered a tour with a medium level of difficulty and is perfect for leisure cyclists and guests who value unique hotels and good wine!

Itinerary at a glance

Mediterranean climate and winemaking characterize the Palatinate. During the day, you will explore the university city of Heidelberg, the imperial cathedral of Speyer and the Nibelungen Bridge in Worms. Whether wine festival or commerce - the stop at the stage destination is well deserved.

Welcome briefing and bike fitting. Enjoy the marvellous view over the vines and the town.

Romantic wine-growing towns are dotted along the way of today’s tour. Picture- perfect Sankt Martin and Edenkoben, former summer residence of the Bavarian kings! Romantic in this area is also the wine route leading to the former French fortress Landau.

The Queichtal-cycle path leads you from Landau through shaded forests all the way to Germersheim. Here the walls of the former fortress are impressive. From here you follow the well-developed Rhine-cycle path into the imperial town of Speyer with its spectacular cathedral, which is also an UNESCO-World Cultural Heritage site. 

A short tour which leaves you with lots of time for the cultural highlights located en route. We highly recommend visiting the famous ensemble of palace and gardens in Schwetzingen. The striking palace complex of Heidelberg is already visible from afar before you finally cycle into the unique old part of town located directly at the Neckar-riverside.

You follow the river Neckar until Ladenburg. The many half-timber houses create an exceptional ambience. Through extensive wooded areas in the Rhine Valley you follow the route all the way into the old imperial city of Worms with its amazing cathedral.

Today from the Rhine Valley you proceed into the second largest German wine-growing area, to the German Wine Route. Experience wine culture in the small and large wine-growing communities, lots of history and stories dating all the way back to Roman times. Finally you sample the excellent Palatine wine in the renowned vineyard estate ‚Weingut Fitz Ritter‘.
