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.

Tolle Tour
Interessante Tour mit Orten voller Sehenswürdigkeiten. Angenehme Tagesetappen mit ausreichend Zeit, die Orte zu erkunden. Ausführliche Reiseunterlagen und sehr gute Fahrräder.

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.
