Head outside, switch off, enjoy nature and let off steam – your mountain bike is your ticket to microadventures after work or on the weekend. You don't need a lot of time, nor do you have to travel far. Once you're out of the city, the fun begins.

To reach your adventure even more easily, you can catch a VGN bus or train to the trails. This Collection of seven wonderful MTB Tours in the greater Nuremberg area will challenge and amaze you, letting you forget your everyday life for a while.

All the Tours start and end at VGN public transport stops such as train stations that are connected to the S-Bahn or regional rail services and bus stops that are served by VGN’s leisure lines. You hop on, relax, enjoy the short journey, and, as soon as you get off, your MTB adventure begins.

Our Tour selection is very diverse, so there’s something for everyone. The short one-way routes from station to station are perfect as an after-work ride, whilst the challenging circular Tours are ideal for a longer ride at the weekend. We show you the most beautiful Tours in Franconian Switzerland, take you to the Fichtelgebirge, the Steigerwald Nature Park and the beautiful Altmühl Valley on the edge of the Franconian Alb.

If you travel by bus and train instead of by car, there's another advantage: some Tours take you to rustic beer gardens that are perfect for winding down at the end of the day. Why not take a break, enjoy a cool drink, watch the sunset and then be chauffeured home?

    Short, but mighty - that's how you could describe this crisp enduro tour from Henfenfeld to Pommelsbrunn. Both places are only three S-Bahn stations apart. But of course you don't drive dead straight like on rails. You can look forward to the finest trails and typical Franconian ups and downs, which
