The Heidelberg-Schwarzwald-Bodensee-Radweg takes you from beautiful Heidelberg am Neckar over the gentle hills of the Kraichgau and through the unique Black Forest with its romantic valleys and heights. Past the Neckar Spring, the Danube Spring and Hohentwiel Castle, you will reach the shores of the picturesque Lake Constance in Radolfzell. From north to south you cycle through Baden-Württemberg and experience its diversity.
In this collection we present the six stages of the 305 kilometre Heidelberg-Schwarzwald-Bodensee-Radweg, which was awarded three stars by the ADFC.
The starting point is in Heidelberg, which you can reach easily by train or via the Neckar Valley Cycle Route. On the way south, there are six stages, which are between 30 and 60 kilometers long, with several climbs waiting for you. So take your time and take breaks again and again. The cosy places to stop along the cycle path or in the villages you cycle through offer you many opportunities to do so. If you want to shorten the stages, that's no problem, because there are many accommodations and some stations along the route, even outside the stage towns. In Radolfzell, at the end of the tour, the Mediterranean ambience of Lake Constance awaits you. Here you can finish your cycle tour with pleasure, before you take the train back home or even continue your journey on the Lake Constance cycle path.
At the beginning of the second stage, behind Bretten, a long climb will lead you through a sparse deciduous forest. Surrounded by pristine nature, you cycle leisurely uphill. Just before you reach the highest point, you drive out of the forest in an open field and meadow landscape and can enjoy the beautiful view. In moderate up and down pass you some pretty places and then roll in a rapid descent to Pforzheim, where you can take a well-deserved break.
