Secluded cycle paths lead between fragrant meadows and orchards; vineyards hug the sides of river valleys and fields are painted with poppies – cycling in Baden-Württemberg is beautiful, especially when you have the cycle path all to yourself.
In this Collection, we would like to introduce you to a small selection of insider tips that take you off-the-beaten-track through the beautiful landscape near the valleys of the Kocher, Jagst and Neckar rivers. These six varied cycling Tours help you to rediscover Baden-Württemberg on almost unknown paths.
If you have some time to spare or are looking for a short cycling Tour, the Odenwald-Madonnen-Radweg (Forest of Odes Madonna Cycle Route) from the town of Tauberbischofsheim to Speyer has a wealth of things to discover. Ambitious cyclists can complete the trail over a weekend. The Sculpture Cycle Path on the edge of the Neckartal-Odenwald Nature Park is just as exciting. Here, the constant ups and downs alternate with impressive artworks en route. On the Literary Cycle Path near the Stromberg-Heuchelberg Nature Park, you can look forward to an enjoyable wine Tour. The small side valleys of the Kocher and Jahst rivers near the town of Möckmühl are also wonderful. Finally, in the Swabian-Franconian Forest near the city of Schwäbisch Hall, you can compete with a few mountains again.
As you can see, there’s a wonderfully wide range of Tours here that couldn’t be more different and follow cycle paths that are relatively unknown. By the way, you can also easily reach all the Tours with public transport, although you spare yourself the return journey on the circular routes.
