Glistening rivers flowing through wild valleys, thick forests blanketing pretty hills and wide, open countryside offering unforgettable views – the Alb-Neckar Cycleway takes you through wonderful landscapes in the south-west of Germany. As well as unique and varied nature, you can look forward to sleepy villages, cosy towns, and charming cities brimming with historical half-timbered houses.
The Alb Neckar CycleWay winds its way through Baden-Württemberg from Ulm to Heilbronn for just over 200 kilometres (124 miles). It takes you across the Swabian Jura mountain range and along picturesque valleys of the river Neckar, Rems and Bottwart. In this Collection, I guide you along the cycle path in five stages, which average about 40 kilometres (24.8 miles) in length.
This five-day Tour sets off from Ulm, which is easy to reach with regional and long-distance trains. Of course, you could also cycle there! The Danube Cycle Path runs through Ulm (komoot.de/collection/359). In Heilbronn, where the Alb-Neckar Cycleway concludes, you also have the option to take the train home or continue your adventure on the Neckar Valley Cycle Path.
You will find plenty of accommodation options in the stage destinations. There are also plenty of restaurants, cafés and cosy beer gardens en route where you can indulge to your heart’s content. On the Alb-Neckar Cycleway, you can enjoy the combination of beautiful landscape, idyllic nature, and Swabian cuisine to the fullest.
