Up and down it goes as you ride through the heart of enchanting hills, vineyards and idyllic forests and past tranquil lakes, with gravel crunching under your tyres. You take a break in a charming half-timbered village and stop to catch your breath and admire the beautiful view. The land of 1,000 hills in Germany offers gravel bike Tours for all your senses.
In this Collection, we show you six varied Tours through the Stromberg-Heuchelberg Nature Park. Lonely roads lead through rolling hills, flanked by vineyards and orchards, and gravel roads carve through peaceful forests. A gravel bike is the perfect companion for Tours in Kraichgau-Stromberg, allowing you to really get to know the region from your saddle.
The routes are physically challenging but they’re also rewarding, with lots of cultural and culinary highlights en route. You pass by fairytale castle ruins, roll through medieval-looking villages and explore monasteries. If you get hungry, you can indulge in regional dishes such as asparagus, Maultaschen ravioli and Grumbir Wurscht croquettes washed down with a glass of wine. There are lots of cosy traditional Besenwirtschaften taverns en route.
Most of the Tours in this Collection are easily accessible by train. The routes work well as day rides on a weekend or as an epic biking holiday. The region is made for cycling adventures. In central Germany, there are numerous bed & bike hotels, inns and rustic taverns that cater to cyclists.
