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. From Greding it goes upstream on the Schwarzach and then along the Thalach. After leaving the creek, you will cycle across wide meadows and through quiet forests to the Swabian Rezat. At the end of the stage Ramsberg awaits you on the shore of the Great Brombach.
From Wörnitzhofen there is a long, but very varied ride on the German Limes Cycle Route waiting for you. In steady ups and downs you cycle through the wonderful landscape and first follow the beautiful Wörnitz. On the way you can expect great views as well as a lot of nature in quiet forests, idyllic lakes in which you can swim, and of course Limes towers and other Roman relics.
From Weißenburg, right at the beginning of this tour on the German Limes Cycle Path, a crisp ascent leads you to a hill in the Raitenbucher Forest. Up here you will find several information boards about the Limes, a fort and a watchtower. The route runs up and down here and is very varied before the forest opens up again. Over wide fields, it continues on a gently sloping route before you dive into the next forest area.
This tour on the German Limes Cycle Path begins in an idyllic way with a relaxed change from refreshing forest and wide fields. In steady ups and downs you cycle through a wonderful landscape with forests, meadows and fields as well as pretty villages to Altmannstein. Here you have already reached half of the tour and you absolutely deserve a little break including a stop.
