Itinerary

The city is the embodiment of medieval city romance and was perpetuated from artists as Spitzweg and Richter. Make a tour through Rothenburg with the nightwatchman.

You cycle from valley Taubertal to the Altmühl origin in the former residence city Ansbach with precious rococo palace. (Cat.A) or directly from Colmberg to Herrieden (Cat.B)

Through meadows and range land to Gunzenhausen, the centre of the Franconia lake area. In Graben you will find the leftover of a canal project which was planned from Charlemagne. Afterwards you continue to Weißenburg, famous for its roman excavations.

On your today’s bike tour the valley get narrower, river Altmühl cuts deeply into the Jura Mountain. Fortresses seem the way and Eichstätt presents itself as former bishop’s city in lovely baroque style.

Within a few kilometres you reach the reconstructed roman castle Vetoniana. You continue through a picturesque nature park which is coined through cedar heathland. Along imposing fortress Kipfenberg to the well preserved medieval city Beilngries.

First goal is Dietfurt, here you reach the Rhine-Main-Danube canal. Fortress Prunn and the stalactite cave Schulerloch are interesting places of interest, before you reach the Danube in Kelheim. Already from afar you can see the Liberation Hall high above. .

Today the route is short, but very interesting. You go by boat through the romantic Danube opening to monastery Weltenburg, which is located picturesque on a sandbank. You continue unhurried to Regensburg which applies as best preserved big city.

Excellent route with lovely places for stopovers
The start and end towns are beautiful and I would recommend at least one extra night in both. All the other towns we stayed in were pleasant places for an after dinner stroll. All the hotels we stayed in were excellent with helpful staff. Overall we had a great holiday.

Kompliment
eine sehr schöne Radreise in weitgehend ländlichem Gebiet (jeden Tag irgendwo Kuckuksruf, das ist heute doch selten), aber auch mit viel unbefestigten Rad- Feldwegen, für uns war es kein Problem da wir nur trockenes Wetter hatten. Durchwegs gute Unterkünfte mit sehr gutem Frühstück. Rothenburg wunderschön mit spannender Nachtwächterführung, Belingries Hotel Milip äusserst rustikal, sehr schön und gut, insgesamt eine gelungene Reise zum weiter empfehlen

Sehr geehrter Herr Eggenberger, vielen Dank für das Kompliment! Wir freuen uns sehr, dass ihnen die Tour so gut gefallen hat. Der Vorteil der unbefestigten Radwege ist, dass man direkt durch die schöne Natur fahren kann. Anders müsste man auf Straßen mit mehr oder weniger viel Verkehr ausweichen. Wir würden uns sehr freuen ihnen auch im nächsten Jahr wieder bei ihrer Reiseplanung behilflich sein zu dürfen.
