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)

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.

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.
