Discover new paths – e-bike Tours in Franconian Switzerland
© Fränkische Schweiz | Florian_Trykowski
Bicycles are perfect for exploring new paths and unfamiliar areas. You roll silently through beautiful landscapes – just fast enough to make good progress and yet slow enough to enjoy the beauty of nature and all the wonderful little details in peace. A bike holiday is ideal for slow travel. Each day brings a new wonderful mix of enjoyment and adventure.
There’s only one small downer. Despite the freedom that a bicycle gives you, your range of motion is of course somewhat limited. The distance and altitude is bound to tire you out at some point. This means that you often ride the same routes again and again and you probably know them like the back of your hand by now.
This is where an e-bike comes in. It gives you the extra power you need to get off the beaten track. The mighty climb you've never dared before suddenly loses its terror and the extra long Tour is no longer a problem. Thanks to e-bikes, you can leave familiar terrain and discover your surroundings in a whole new way. With this Collection, we want to give you inspiration for new adventures. Forget ‘too long’, ‘too far’ or ‘too steep’ and look forward to great bike Tours that you hardly dared to dream of!
With this Collection, we whisk you away to Franconian Switzerland. Choose between eight varied day Tours that offer something for everyone. Whether you’re a pleasure seeker and like to cycle from beer garden to beer garden, are interested in architecture and history, or simply want to immerse yourself in nature, you can get anywhere with an e-bike. With a little electric help, you cruise through the hilly landscape of Franconian Switzerland, enjoying endless views, completely relaxed.
In addition to the day Tours, we also present two long-distance bike routes in this Collection. You can divide these into several stages as you wish and choose your starting point freely. The 195-kilometre (121 mi) Brewery and Beer Cellar Tour takes you to the region’s cosiest beer gardens. On thing is guaranteed – you won’t go hungry or thirsty on this Tour. On the Casanova Tour, you dive into Franconian Switzerland’s history as you visit old markets and ride through green valleys and past fairytale castles – 192 kilometres (119 mi) of pure cycling fun!

A real pleasure tour is this 40 kilometer long circuit that takes you past countless cozy breweries and beer gardens. It is really not easy to make a choice. It's best if you bring a lot of thirst and hunger with you for the many worthwhile stops. You start at the train station in Graefenberg and can therefore travel comfortably by train.
Picturesque landscapes, historical places and stately castles await you on this 192-kilometer round tour that transports you back to Casanova's times. You cycle over the heights of Franconian Switzerland, through the Wiesent and Trubach valleys and the cities of Creußen and Bayreuth. Since this is a lap, you can hop on at any point and divide it into as many stages as is best for you.
