Gentle hills, rippling streams, cozy villages, and exciting sights - cycling in Birkenfeld Land is like a treasure hunt for pleasure cyclists. The charming residential town of Birkenfeld is the perfect starting point for the seven unforgettable cycling tours that we would like to present to you in this collection.

Special highlights for cyclists are the three RadLust loops, which you can start directly in Birkenfeld. The perfectly prepared and well-marked round tours are each dedicated to their own themes so that you not only get to know the beautiful landscape but also the cultural features of the region. You will learn everything about ore processing in the region, enjoy heavenly views and refreshing waters. And you will follow in the footsteps of the Celts and Romans who once populated the Birkenfeld countryside.

In addition to the three marked tours, there is much more material for wonderful cyclists' dreams - if you like, you can even embark on stage trips lasting several days along the Nahe Cycle Path or the National Park Cycle Route. At the latest then the adventure in Birkenfelder Land is perfect.

Nevertheless, you don't have to do without comfort or service. In the Birkenfelder Land, there are several bike shops that will help you with a defect and all kinds of cyclist-friendly hosts. If you want to travel environmentally friendly by train, you will find very good connections to the National Park railway station Neubrücke/Nahe, for example, from the Rhine-Main area. From here it is only a few kilometers to Birkenfeld, where your adventure in Birkenfeld Land begins.
