To experience the diverse Nuremberg landscape in the truest sense of the word, this Collection of cycle rides showcases ten different day routes between 14 and 28 Miles (23 and 46 kilometers) in length. All of the routes begin from the same starting point, the medieval town of Lauf an der Pegnitz. Six of the routes start directly in Lauf, whilst four begin nearby in the surrounding area and can be reached either by bike or by train from Lauf.

On the cycle routes, you will experience the Nuremberg countryside anew again and again as each leg shows you a very special side of the region. Besides the numerous scenic beauties such as Pegnitz, Moritzberg or Lorenzer Reichswald, you will also learn a lot about the region’s history. On the cycle path "Industrial History", for example, you pass industrial monuments and museums and on the cycle tour "Cultural Landscape of the Middle Ages" you cycle through ancient towns and villages.

In the region of Nuremberg, there are more than 620 miles (1,000 kilometers) of marked cycle paths waiting for you to explore. They will lead you through the fascinating Northern Franconian Jura and the picturesque Pegnitz Valley. Here, you will experience enchanted pine forests and peaceful lakes. In addition to the incredible nature, there are also many cultural highlights such as castles, palaces, manor houses, and museums that you can discover whilst cycling in the Nuremberg countryside.

Although the cycling routes are very varied, they all have one thing in common: the wide range of restaurants along the routes. No matter whether you choose a sporty, natural or cultural route, enjoyable breaks and delicious Franconian cuisine are guaranteed - the perfect fuel for an unforgettable cycling experience in Nuremberg.
