Itinerary

Kinding is a small, dreamy village, where the rivers Anlauter, Schwarzach and Altmühl meet. If you arrive early enough you will have time to visit the Rumburg ruin. According to legend, those who manage to climb up to the ruin without saying a word on the night of May 1st, will be rewarded with treasure. Booked rental bikes will be available at the hotel

Today you will cycle to Weißenburg by following the river Anlauter. The town was founded because of the Limes, the former fortified border of the Roman Empire. Today, countless Baroque and half-timbered buildings adorn the historical town centre. Your destination Wettelsheim is located just outside of the gates of the thermal bath town Treuchtlingen.

The lake was created as part of an ambitious engineering project to balance Bavaria’s water resources. Along its 12 km long shore you will find countless inviting spots to go for a refreshing swim. In neighbouring Gunzenhausen, the only town in Bavaria located directly on the Limes, Roman history comes to life at every corner.

The valley gets noticeably narrower beginning in Wettelsheim. Here, the river has carved its way deep through the Jurassic rock. Towering castles protect the Altmühl, while you get closer to your next destination – the episcopal see Eichstätt. The field of figures in the Hessen Valley, where over 78 larger than life stone sculptures move, is impressive and definitely worth a visit.

Today´s stage is relaxing and doesn’t take a lot of effort, so that you will keep the Altmühl Valley Nature Park in good memory. At the halfway point you will reach Kipfenberg, close to Bavaria’s geographical centre, which is protected by an impressive castle. The river Altmühl will lead you back to Kinding

Let your cycling tour come to a relaxing close over breakfast. In case you want to spend another few days in the Altmühl Valley, we would be happy to extend your stay in Kinding.

The route

Mainly along separate cycling paths, a few of them are asphalted. There are a few hills on the first stage of the trip.

Sehr schöne Tour
Die Altmühltaltour hat uns sehr gut gefallen. 3 gute Hotels, Frühstück jeweils super. Besonders das "Goldene Lamm" in Wettelsheim / Treuchtlingen gefiel uns. Die Organisation des Koffertransports war hervorragend. Auch wurden unsere Fahrräder immer gut und sicher untergebracht. Am ersten Tourtag, dem Anstieg auf dem Anlauter-Radweg nach Weißenburg, freuten wir uns über unsere Pedelecs. Es war aber auch der schönste Teil der Tour da man fast alleine unterwegs war und viel "Natur" genoß. Die eigentliche Altmühltalradweg stellt keine großen Herausforderungen an die Kondition. Die Länge der Tagestouren ist moderat. Unterwegs gibt es etliches zu sehen, wir hatten auch das Glück, dass die Rapsfelder und die Wiesen in voller Blüte standen. Die Radtour wurde zu einem Genuß.

Bestens organisierte Radtour
Bereits bei der Anreise klappte alles super. Räder waren vor Ort - inklusive Radtaschen, Verbandsmaterial und Werzeug. Die im breitgestellten Material beschriebenen Wegstrecken waren sehr gut beschrieben. Insgesamt ein rundum Sorglospaket, was wir jederzeit wieder buchen würden.

wunderschöne Radreise rund ums Altmühtal
Die Teilstrecke am ersten Tag durchs Anlautertal war landschaftlich wunderschön. In der Tourbeschreibung sollte unserer Meinung nach auf den für Flachländer doch beachtlichen Anstieg von ca. 300 Hm hingewiesen werden. Die vorgebuchten Unterkünfte waren durchweg prima, der Gepäcktransport hat wunderbar geklappt.
