As you roll comfortably through beautiful country lanes, the sound of the splashing river gushing through the valley never quite leaves your side. Or at least until you hit those inclines. At this point, as you crank your way ever-uphill, you begin to wonder where all of these mountains came from. Then, once you arrive at the top of the hill, you see for the first time the majesty of the landscape you were comfortably rolling through not that long ago. As you gaze out over the land, you spot fascinating caves, impressive rock formations, the remnants of a once-mighty castle and a horizon steeped in history.
Here, in this gorgeous part of the world, no matter which of our seven mountain bike rides you choose, a beautiful beer awaits you at the end of each day out on the trails. That's what the region is known for — and that's why we've dedicated this Collection to this specialty of the region. Follow in the footsteps of hops and malt on your mountain bike. Discover a few of the 69 family-run breweries, which cultivate a traditional craft here and produce delicious Franconian beer specialties by hand. Many breweries also offer guided tours around their premises, so that you can not only taste but also learn everything about their delicious brew. With this in mind, cheers!
