Rhine & Vines with Charm

‚Settle down where good quality vines grow ...‘ After this holiday you will absolutely agree with this saying. Since cherished vineyards are also indicative of a mild climate, culinary delicacies and lots of cultural highlights. And consequently during this tour you cycle through vineyards, along idyllic rivers, through medieval alleyways and past splendid castles and palaces. And then after an adventurous, active day you look forward to a new, charming accommodation daily ... A perfect match to this marvellous region!

Itinerary

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‘.

Tour character

Mostly on level terrain. Only in the vineyards will you come across smaller ascents.
