Mountain biking is pure freedom. It gets you out in nature enjoying the fresh air and also encourages you to explore places that you wouldn't reach on foot. The cool thing about mountain biking is that you can do it almost anywhere. Whether on alpine trails in the south of Germany, on sandy paths through heathlands in the north of the country or on exciting secret paths in the middle of the Ruhr region: your bike knows no boundaries. Instead, you can be sure of fun and action, and that's exactly what this Collection offers across nine different Tours!

Are these the most beautiful nature trails in Germany? Perhaps, but either way, we’re sure that you’ll enjoy the routes and trails in this Collection if you like mountain biking.

So if you've got a taste for it, you'll find a link to a Collection in each Tour that promises you even more inspiration for exciting bike action.
