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 ‘kidnap’ you to the Franconian Lake District. Located in the southern part of Franconia in the north of Bavaria in Germany, the Great Brombach Lake is the beating heart of the Franconian Lake District.

In the surrounding area, there are other lakes, some of which are important water reservoirs for the relatively dry Franconian landscapes. You can look forward to the beautiful 460-kilometre (285-mi) Franconian Water Cycle Path which takes you through stunning landscapes and past numerous cultural highlights along the banks of rivers and lakes.

The German Limes Cycle Path is another great route in the area which follows the former course of the Upper Germanic-Rhaetian Limes. It’s one of the most important archaeological monuments in Central Europe and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You can ride both the Franconian Water Cycle Route and the German Limes Cycle Route in several stages. Both routes offer a diverse adventure in the Franconian Lake District.

If you are limited on time, we also have two great day Tours up our sleeves for you. The 61 kilometre (38-mi) ‘Jura-E-Bike-Tour’ was specially designed for e-bikes and takes you to picturesque villages, interesting sights and idyllic swimming spots. The ‘Gates-Towers-Castles’ circular route covers almost 100 kilometres (60 mi) through beautiful landscapes between Wieseth, Altmühl and Fränkischer Rezat. You explore towns, markets and villages and don’t forget to pack your swimsuit for this loop either!

    As the name implies, on the third day of the Franconian water cycle path, large and small bodies of water are also on the program.

Over wide fields, it continues on a gently sloping route before you dive into the next forest area.
