Three Imperial Cathedrals on Rhine

Speyer - Worms - Mainz

The mighty imperial cathedrals in Speyer, Worms, and Mainz are impressive witnesses of the 1,000-year-long history along the largest European river. They were built in a very scenic environment at the crossroads of important trade routes. The special charm of nature and culture still exists. On this varied and interesting tour you can enjoy riding your bike along the romantic ancient Rhine channels, passing many cultural highlights in the largest wine-producing regions of Germany - Rhine-Hessen and Pfalz.

Itinerary

Tour information and bike fitting. You will spend a wonderful evening in the unique atmosphere of Germany’s oldest university town.  

Hotel (example):

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

Enjoy a ride along the river Rhine, partly on the idyllic paths at the ancient Rhine channels, to Oppenheim, “the city of Gothic style and wine”. Here you can discover the city beneath the city, the labyrinth of Oppenheim, and follow the footsteps of Martin Luther.

The second imperial cathedral of this tour is in the capital of Rheinland-Pfalz, the city of Mainz. Here you will cross the river Main and visit the Gutenberg museum. In the romantic town of Rüdesheim you can take the cable car to enjoy a splendid view of the Middle Rhine Valley (not included in the tour package price).

Hotel (example):

Cat. A and B: Central

After crossing the river Rhein, you will get to Bingen, where the river Nahe joins the Rhein and where four wine growing regions meet. We recommend visiting the bridge Drususbrücke, which was built in the 10th century, next to the Mäuseturm tower as well as the bridge chapel (Brückenkapelle). The “Volker City” Alzey still feels close to its fiddler from the Song of the Nibelungs.

Hotel (example):

Cat. A and B: Am Schloss

On this short stage, you will have a lot of time to enjoy some wine on your way. In Bobenheim, you will get to the beginning of the German wine road and finish your tour in the tranquil city of Grünstadt.

Hotel (example):

Cat. A: Pfalzhotel
Cat. B: Weingut & Gästehaus Friedrichshof

The cultural highlights of the day are the beautiful wine villages you will find along your way. In Bad Dürkheim, you will see the biggest wine barrel in the world and if you travel in September you might also be able to visit the world’s largest wine festival. In Deidesheim, we recommend visiting the wine museum in the medieval town hall. Then, you will cycle via the region called “Balcony of the Pfalz” to the secret wine capital of Germany.

Hotel (example):

Cat. A: Achat Premium
Cat. B: Panorama

On the eighth day, you will visit the third imperial cathedral in Speyer. Enjoy the atmosphere of the beautiful medieval inner city of Speyer and visit the marvelous castle and park in Schwetzingen.

Tolle Radtour mit gut abgestimmten Tagesetappen; zuerst entlang des Rhein mit vielen Sehenswürdigkeiten und zurück durch das Weinanbaugebiet der Pfalz
Natur und Kultur bieten viele Highlights auf der ebenen Strecke entlang des Rhein. Auf dem leicht hügeligen Rückweg entlang der deutschen Weinstraße dominieren wunderschöne Altstädte in den Weinbauorten, wie Alzey, Bad Dürkheim, Wachenheim, Forst, Deidesheim und Neustadt an der Weinstraße. Weinreben soweit das Auge reicht! Die Radstrecke führt teilweise über ländliche Zufahrtswege der Winzer durch das Weinanbaugebiet und ist daher nicht durchgehend asphaltiert. Gepflasterte und geschotterte Wege sowie holperige Betonplatten kommen manchmal vor. Tipp: Eurobike-Räder mieten! Bei einer Zusatznacht in Heidelberg sollte auch das nahegelegene Weinheim mit der Straßenbahn Linie 5 besucht werden: Schöne Altstadt mit Schloß und Burgen.

Schöne Radreise
Insgesamt hat uns die Radtour gut gefallen. Gute Beschreibung der Strecke. Die täglichen Entfernungen waren gut zu schaffen, man hatte genug Zeit sich etwas anzuschauen. Die Übernachtung beim Weingut Friedrichshof in Nierstein hat uns gut gefallen.
