Cycle tour along Bavarians Rivers

Let’s go to Bavaria – the land of comfortableness and hospitality, the land of breweries, the land of history and of the Baroque. This tour leads you along the banks of the rivers – Vils, Naab, Danube, Altmühl, Pegnitz – through a special part of Bavaria. Take your time for the raw kindness of Upper Palatinate and the Franconian charm. Enjoy the titbits of the Bavarian cuisine in a real beer garden.

Itinerary

Individual arrival in Amberg.

You bike on the old railway route along the Vils to Kallmünz. Upper Palatinate occupied the position of an European iron centre in the late Middle Ages (hammer manor Theuern with a mining and industry museum). From Kallmünz you bike on the Naab Valley Bicycle Path to Regensburg.

You should have a look at the former imperial city Regensburg with its cathedral, city fortresses, dynasty towers, and last but not least, rock bridges. The Danube leads the way to Kelheim.

The Liberation Hall of Kelheim is famous. Also a worth experiencing is a boat journey on the Danube bursting and a visit to the monastery Weltenburg. The riverbed of the Altmühl is substituted by a 55 m broad Main-Danube-Channel between Kelheim and Dietfurt.

With its city wall and thirteen towers is Berching a gem of the Middle Ages. Cycle along the Main-Danube-Channel to Nuremberg. At Pierheim you will reach the European watershed and with it the catchment area of the Main. “Ambitious” bikers may choose to bike through Neumarkt in Upper Palatine along the old Main-Ludwig-Channel to Nuremberg (approx. 85 km).

Commerce and trade were at the heart of Nuremberg as it was the “Metropolis of the Middle Ages”. This short stage makes it possible to enjoy Nuremberg in peace. The Pegnitz accompanies you to Hersbruck.

To Hersbruck – young life in old walls – you bike again in the catchment’s area of the Danube. Your tour ends in the early afternoon at the starting point of the journey – Amberg. Departure or extension!

The route

Except for slightly hilly at the last and the day before last the route is mostly flat; you bike on bicycle paths and side roads with little or no traffic.

Manuela Wagner DE | 10.08.2019
Es waren sonnige,entspannte erholsame Tage!!
Touren waren sehr gut ausgesucht mit viel Natur und Ruhe, Streckenlänge angemessen, Hotels sehr gut mit optimaler Lage und freundlichem Personal, man konnte nach einer entspannten Tour schnell die Innerstädte erreichen, gute und sichere Unterstellmöglichkeiten für die Räder
4 stars

Radtour zum Geniesen
Reizvolle Landschaft und tolles Wetter (natürlich Glücksache). Streckenführung machte ein entspanntes Radeln möglich. Etappenlänge ließ genügend Zeit für Pausen und Besichtigungen.

Hallo Frau Fetz, danke für Ihre positive Rückmeldung. Wir freuen uns, dass Sie so zufrieden waren. Die Zubuchung der Halbpension geschieht meistens, wenn die Kunden sich nach dem Radeln kein Restaurant mehr suchen sondern im Etappenhotel essen möchten. Jetzt ist es aber oft so, dass auch Gasthöfe und Pensionen dabei sind und diese kein Restaurant haben, so dass die die Kunden dann doch woanders Ihr Abendessen einnehmen müssen. Eine Spreisekarte in einem Restaurant ist natürlich immer vielfltiger als eine Hotelkarte, so dass einem das Essen irgendwann überall gleich vorkommt. Also beim nächsten Mal dann nur mit Frühstück!
