At river Tauber and Altmühl

Nature park and valley Altmühl

From Rothenburg o. d. Tauber to Regensburg

From the springs of river Altmühl across the nature park Altmühl, past fortresses and castles you cycle to Regensburg. In former times Altmühl was a flourishing cultural and economical centre, preserved in a kind of “Sleeping-Beauty” sleep until tourists and hydro-electricity remembered the secluded and idyllic countryside… The earlier “sleep” preserved many architectonic gems, the new life brought tourist comfort and marvellous cycle paths.

Individual arrival in Rothenburg od T. Late afternoon found the information meeting and the distribution of bicycles (if booked) instead. We recommend an initial tour of the historic old town of Rothenburg with its medieval streets and timbered houses.

Bike ride through the park Frankenhöhe to Altmühl source and to Colmberg. Either directly or after Herrieden Lehrberg to Ansbach. (approx. 50 km)

At the present stage the valley narrows, the Altmühl cuts deep into the Jurassic rocks. Castles line the heights, while presented as a former bishop of Eichstätt in the lovely baroque city. (approx. 45 km)

Passing Walting Arnsberg and you can reach the resort Kipfenberg with its stunning castle and the charming center. Follow the romantic Altmühl and reach the quiet town Beilngries. (approx. 50 km)

Passing Dietfurt reach Riedenburg. Along the Main-Danube Canal with modern sluices you cycle to the mouth of the Danube at Kelheim Altmühl. Soon the Liberation Hall on Michelsberg be seen. (approx. 50 km)

By boat it comes to Weltenburg. Besides the famous monastery, see one of the best beer gardens in Bavaria with the home-brewed beer burger world. Follow cycling the Danube past the Danube Gorge in the city of Regensburg, with its magnificent cathedral and a charming old town. (approx. 40 km)

100% tolles Erlebnis
Wir haben die Reise von A bis Z geniessen können, obwohl wir z.T. sehr heisses Wetter hatten. Die Organisation hat einwandfrei geklappt. Schade, dass es schon vorbei ist.Beim nächsten Mal würden wir vielleicht keine Halbpension mehr buchen, da wir vor Ort doch das eine oder andere Mal lieber à la Carte gegessen hätten. Das Essen war aber ausnahmslos sehr gut und auch immer genügend.

Wunderbar, dass es Ihnen so gut gefallen hat und vielen Dank, dass Sie uns das auch mitteilen. Wir sind auch der Meinung, dass die zauberhafte Gegend und die ausgewogene Route unseren Kunden gefallen sollte. Wenn dann das Wetter noch mitspielt, ist es die perfekte Radreise.
