The Spessart Nature Park is Germany's largest contiguous deciduous forest area and a distinctive, marked trail network - partly built by the locals - makes this a true paradise for mountain bikers. Complete with narrow alleys and romantic half-timbered houses, lush meadows, and high mountain summits, the Spessart is a real jewel and an incredibly beautiful idyll in the middle of Germany.

In this Collection, we present seven awesome rides in the North Spessart around Bad Orb. The small spa town, famous for its brine springs, is a perfect starting point for your next mtb adventure—and the perfect place to sample some serious culinary highlights. As soon as you hop on your bike, you are in the middle of a trail paradise, with the main Highlights being the new "Flowtrail" network just outside the town. Here, beginners and experienced bikers alike can have fun and let off some steam—the perfect place to learn a new trick or two, or to polish your pre-existing bike skills.

Each ride presented here is doable for riders of all fitness levels and abilities. Here, in the Spessart, basking in the spectacle of the beautiful mountain surroundings is priority number one—technically demanding mountain biking comes second.

    This tour takes you along beautiful streams and idyllic wetlands east out of Bad Orb. Along the hazel you reach the end of the Bad Orber Flow Trail at "half mountain height", which you briefly brush to get an impression of it. If you like that, there's nothing wrong with scouting the rest of the Flowtrail

    Today, you're walking pretty much every hill and mountain around Bad Orb: the Eisenberg, the Großer Kuppe, the Haselberg, the Markberg, the Rosskopf and the Wintersberg. That may sound wild, but in reality this round is quite tame. Because as I said: she just brushes the mountains. Actually, she somehow

    This nearly 40-kilometer long circuit northeast of Bad Orb has a lot of nice ups and downs to offer and is technically a bit more demanding, as time and again a nice trail loosens the gravel and forest trails. This time the tour starts without "Vorgeplänkel" on the Orb directly on the Münsterberg, which
