Winery tour on the Rhine

Through Vineyards to the Imperial Cathedrals.

Do you know there are three imperial cathedrals on the Rhine? If not, no problem! With the Eurobike cycle tour you can explore the romantic Rhine and learn more about the charm of the region. The impressive imperial cathedrals in Speyer, Worms and Mainz line the cycle paths along the largest German river.

Enjoy the southern flair and warm wind on two wheels. Blossoming almond trees and exotic fruit enchant with their wonderful scent. Between historical cities, extensive vineyards and southern atmosphere you will experience the region with all your senses.

But that’s not all: The university city of Heidelberg, Nierstein and Neustadt form further fantastic highlights! Wine lovers take note! Oppenheim is considered a Gothic city of wine. So if you are looking for a slam dunk, you will definitely find it in this region.

Details about the cycle tour ‘Winery tour on the rhine’

The journey begins with a leisurely evening in the oldest German university city, Heidelberg. The next day, you will travel on two wheels to Worms, where you will be able to admire the 12th-century cathedral and the Martin Luther Monument.

While you enjoy cycling along the idyllic paths along the Rhine, the city of wine will already be on your mind. In the region around Nierstein you can enjoy a glass of the best Riesling and let enjoyment of the landscape run wild.

There are four stages in front of you on days four to seven. From Rüdesheim via Alzey and Grünstadt to Neustadt an der Weinstraße. Beautiful wine-producing villages and cultural highlights make the region a great place to live. You’ll find the third cathedral in Speyer on the route.

Itinerary

Your holiday starts with a tour information meeting and bike fitting in the secret German Wine capital, with contorted alleys, impressive abbey church and the famous fountain „Elwedritschenbrunnen“.

Hotel (example):

 

You will leave the wine growing region and cycle on pleasant paths through the Rhine plain until you reach the cathedral city of Speyer with its medieval inner-city. The famous ensemble of palace and palace-garden in Schwetzingen is a further highlight of the tour before your day will end in the oldest German university town Heidelberg.

Hotel (example):

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):

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”. During a short ferry ride across the Rhine you can already enjoy the view of Nierstein embedded of countless vineyards. Corresponding we have organized a wine tasting for you.

Hotel (example):

Through the vineyards you will cycle to the second imperial cathedral of this tour in the capital of Rheinland-Pfalz, the city of Mainz. Here you will cross the river Rhein and visit the Gutenberg museum. In the romantic town of Rüdesheim you can take the cable car to enjoy a splendid view over the vineyards, a very recommendable experience.

Hotel (example):

 

After crossing the river Rhine again, you will get to Bingen, where the river Nahe joins the Rhine 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). Up and down the vineyards you will cycle to the “Volker City” Alzey, which still feels close to its fiddler from the Song of the Nibelungs. In the wine hotel a sommelier will explain you the diversity of the wine for you.

Hotel (example):

 

The short stage will allow you to spend lots of time to explore and enjoy the wine culture in this area. You will reach in Bobenheim, the beginning of the German Wine Road and your day will end in the small wine growers town of Grünstadt.

Hotel (example):

Wonderful wine grower villages are the cultural highlights of this day. In Bad Dürkheim, you will see the biggest wine barrel in the world and for sure you will have another wine tasting in this town. 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.

Unser Feedback
Insgesamt eine sehr schöne Reise mit tollen Strecken. Mit einer Ausnahme waren alle Hotels sehr schön. Etwas betrüblich war, dass das Leihrad (Pedelec) nicht in Ordnung war, aber es wurde schnell ausgetauscht. Auf keinen Fall zu empfehlen ist das Hotel ibis am Hauptbahnhof Heidelberg.

Vielen Dank für Ihre Bewertung. Wir bedauern, dass das gemietete E-Bike erst nicht funktionierte. In solchen Fällen tauschen wir selbstverständlich das Rad in kürzester Zeit um. Schön, dass Ihnen die Tour sonst gut gefallen hat.

Abwechslungsreiche Radtour durch die Rheinebene und die Weinberge der deutschen Weinstrasse
Mit Start und Ziel in Heidelberg kann man diese herrliche Stadt an 2 Abenden geniessen: ein touristisches Highlight. Worms kann da natürlich nicht mithalten, der Dom und das Lutrherdenkmal sind natürlich sehenswert, aber sonst wenig Attraktives. Unbedingt muss man den kurzen Abstecher nach Mainz machen, nicht nur wegen des Doms. Danach Nierstein am Rhein und Rüdesheim, aussergewöhnlich ruhig in dieser Zeit: die Drosselgasse fast menschenleer, trotzdem haben wir uns das eine oder andere Glas Wein gut schmecken lassen. An der deutschen Weinstrasse sind wir durch viele gemütliche Weinorte geradelt, auch dort ging es sehr gemächlich zu. wegen Corona. Ein letztes Highlight der Reise ist Speyer mit seinem romanischem Dom. Die Tour ist unbedingt empfehlenswert, mit e-Bike ist das Radeln ein Genuss.

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.
