Details about cycling holidays on the Rhine cycle path

With more than 1,230 kilometres by bike, the Rhine Cycle Path is one of the longest cycle paths. Explore 295 kilometres of it on a cycling holiday with Eurobike! Most of the time you enjoy the idyllic view of the banks of the Rhine, but sometimes you find yourself in the tributaries, where nature is untouched. Tip: Be sure to taste the fruity Riesling in Nierstein am Rhein – it is one of the best in the world!

Highlights of the Rhine Cycle Path to Mainz at a glance:

  • Suitable for families and beginners: The Rhine Cycle Path mostly runs on good cycle paths directly on the river or on gravel paths in the Rhine countryside. This cycle path can really be mastered by everyone, so it is ideal for families and children or for the first cycling holiday.
  • Mild climate: The mild climate in Alsace, Baden and the Palatinate ensures even more cycling fun. The mild temperatures are not only good for the grape vines that thrive in these regions, they also mean your cycling holiday can start in early April.
  • Rich culture: Strasbourg, Heidelberg, Worms, Mainz – these cities offer cultural highlights that make your cycling holiday even more beautiful.

Itinerary

Tour information and bike fitting. You will spend a wonderful evening in the Alsatian capital with its many canals and a unique atmosphere.

Hotel (example):

Cat. A: Best Western Monopole
Cat. B: Ibis Styles

A wonderfully made cycle path takes you through the town to the Rhine’s river bank. You will cycle comfortably along the Rhine through the gentle Rhine valley. In Drusenheim, you will take a ferry to the other side of the Rhine river bank and then you will continue through the charming meadow landscape until you get to Rastatt with its baroque old town.

Hotel (example):

Cat. A: Schwert
Cat. B: Ibis Styles

Today you cycle idyllically along the old Rhine arms through what seems like untouched nature. Then you head through the biggest nature protection area in the Palatinate, the Hördter Rheinauen until you get to the former fortress city of Germersheim. The newly formed Rhine river bank and the unhurried centre of Germersheim provide some amusement.

Hotel (example):

Cat. A: Germersheimer Hof
Cat. B: Kurfürst

The Old Father Rhine brings you to the Imperial city of Speyer and its impressive and UNESCO world heritage cathedral. The famous ensemble of the palace and palace gardens in Schwetzingen are further highlights of the tour before your day comes to an end in the oldest German university town in Heidelberg.

Hotel (example):

Cat. A: Bayrischer Hof
Cat. B: Ibis

You will cycle along the river Neckar to the old Roman town of Ladenburg with its beautiful medieval inner city. Then you will continue your tour through the Rhine valley to the imperial city of Worms with its cathedral built in the 12th century, the Martin Luther monument and the oldest Jewish cemetery in Europe.

Hotel (example):

Cat. A: Dom-Hotel
Cat. B: Asgard

You will comfortably cycle along the river Rhine. Lots of agriculture will accompany you on this stage. Everything that tastes good gets grown here! At times you will cycle along the old Rhine arms today and then soon afterwards you will end up on the other side of the river bank where you will see the first vines. Afterwards there are only a few more kilometres and then one more crossing over the river Rhine until you get to the charming wine-making village, Nierstein. You should definitely try a glass of Riesling in the evening!

Hotel (example):

Kat. A: Best Western Wein- und Parkhotel
Kat. B: Schwibinger

Today’s stage is short giving you lots of free time to enjoy. Shortly after Nierstein the cycle path goes through the vineyards. Take a view across the Rhine valley – the impressive steep wine-growing slopes and the large river are the lifelines for this region. The cycle path runs along the Rhine’s river bank and then into the centre of Mainz. The imperial cathedral as well as many other attractions are the magnets attracting many visitors here from both close and far away.

Hotel (example):

Cat. A und B: InterCity

Tour character

You mainly cycle on well-built cycle paths along the Rhine cycle path. A predominantly flat route that is an easy cycle for everybody. Through the Rhine flood plains there are longer sections on gravel paths.

Nice flat route wit charming historical cities
Most beautiful places: Strasbourg, Speyer, Worms, Oppenheim, Nierstein. You go directly along the Rhine quite rarely, but the cycle routes are very quiet.

Well organised and great tour
We did Basel to Strasbourg in 3 days, which is not the typical tour. It was well organised and the hotels and food were excellent.

Zwischen Rhein und Reben die Pfalz erleben!
Alle gebuchten Hotels waren ok. Zimmer, Frühstück und Lage waren durchweg gut. Eine Streckenführung war teilweise nur unzureichend ausgeschildert(Heidelberg-Worms) und verbessserungswürdig. Unterm Strich ist die Tour empfehlenswert.
Eurofun Touristik GmbH answered:
Hallo Rudolf, vielen Dank für Ihre Bewertung. Wir aktualisieren regelmäßig die Streckenausschilderung und hoffen, dass Sie keine größeren Probleme hatten die richtige Strecke zu finden! Natürlich schauen wir uns vor der neuen Saison die Streckenabschnitt nochmal an und bessern diesen ggf. nochmal aus. Wir würden uns sehr freuen, Sie wieder als Gast auf unseren Touren begrüßen zu dürfen! Schöne Grüße, Joscha

Durch die Rheinauen
Die Leihräder wurden von der ersten Teilreise übernommen. Die Organisation war reibungslos. Wechselweise Rheinaue oder alte Städte. Die 4 Tage aussetzende Rheinfähre war eine Überraschung, aber kein Problem, weil kein Umweg.
Eurofun Touristik GmbH answered:
Hallo Herr Harlos, vielen Dank für die positive Rückmeldung. Wir freuen uns sehr, dass Ihnen die Radreise gut gefallen hat und begrüßen Sie gerne wieder auf unseren Radtouren! Schöne Grüße, Joscha
