    At 6:50 am from Besigheim by train and changing three times, I arrived in Furth im Wald at 1:38 pm. Rain when getting off the train and continuously while driving the tour. It only stopped raining when we arrived at our overnight accommodation.

    From Furth im Wald we went to the Drachensee and there over

    At least 800 meters in altitude are ahead of me today. From where I stayed, I reached my first destination, the Eschlkamer Kunstwanderweg, fairly quickly. Its motto is: "Border encounters - paths between East and West". Czech and German artists have placed their works of art in this place. In Leming

    Yesterday's route should have been a good preparatory exercise for today's section. From my overnight stay at the Blaibacher See, I first drove the first few kilometers on the Regental cycle route. Then my preliminary planning led me through a larger piece of forest - uphill, of course. The effort was

    Today I can expect a relaxed stretch along the Danube, mostly on the famous Danube Cycle Path. From Wörth an der Donau to the other side of the motorway and westwards to Kiefenholz. From there it goes on for a while on the north bank of the Danube on level, paved bike paths to Donaustauf. Although it

    Only easy 43 km today from Bad Abbach to Altmannstein. I expect a relaxed tour to Weltenburg Monastery on or along the Danube. At Poikam, the cycle path changes to the northern side of the Danube. The sky is overcast and I hope that at least it will stay dry today. After about an hour I reach Kelheimwinzer

    I decide to refrain from using the pilgrimage route and suffer a similar bankruptcy as yesterday. The first part of the Schambachtal cycle path, a former railway line between Ingolstadt and Riedenburg in the Altmühltal, is also too tempting. Despite the darkly overcast sky, it was a pleasure to cycle

    On the Altmühltal cycle path out of Eichstätt, if the weather is moderate, it goes west towards Dollnstein. Contrary to my plan to follow the pilgrimage route of the East Bavarian St. It is a grandiose landscape with sometimes bizarre rock formations. I am making a detour via the town of Bergen with

    The last stage of my project is imminent. From Rennertshofen via Bertoldsheim and on the Jurahochweg along the foot pilgrimage route of the East Bavarian Way of St. James to Kaisheim with its huge Cistercian monastery. The Franconian Jakobusweg, which comes from Nuremberg via Oettingen, and the East
