In this Collection, we present seven of Nuremberg’s best e-biking routes. Our wonderful region is a great place to cycle and, thanks to the electric motor, you don't even have to sweat.

We'll take you into the region’s picturesque hilly landscape, past babbling brooks and lush green meadows. We'll show you the fairytale castles we're so proud of and invite you to stretch your legs in historic towns or cool off in conveniently placed Kneipp pools. These pools alternate hot and cold water and align with the hydrotherapy ideas of 19th-century priest, Sebastian Kneipp.

Of course, the most important thing on an enjoyable bike adventure is a stop at a local inn. Luckily, a number of them await you along the way: from coffee and cake to a cool beer and an extended lunch, our hosts are always happy to spoil you in typical Franconian style.

Hopefully you've already loaded up your bike, because when you take a look at the following Tours, you won’t want to wait. Welcome to the wonderful Nuremberg region!
