With rolling hills extending for miles, the Kraichgau-Stomberg region in south-west Germany is a dream for cyclists who enjoy gentle climbs. A network of excellent bike paths takes you through the magical hilly landscape, passing rivers and glistening lakes along the way. Time and time again, you can enjoy impressive panoramas over the sweeping scenery. Thanks to the region’s pleasant climate, you can also taste fine wines as you ride. The hillsides are flanked by picturesque vineyards and delicious grape varieties. Rustic wine bars and traditional taverns offer plenty of opportunities to try out regional delicacies whilst farm shops offer products from field to plate.

In this Collection, I present six of the 28 signposted routes in the land of 1000 hills. Each Tour has been carefully selected to include something for everyone whether you are a climbing fanatic, a family of cyclists, or a relaxed rider. You can easily reach these enchanting routes by train; the region is close to Mannheim, Heidelberg, Heilbronn, Ludwigsburg, Stuttgart, Pforzheim, and Karlsruhe. In the region, you’ll find plenty of restaurants to keep you energised as you ride. With a full stomach, you can concentrate on the wonderful scenery as you ride through vineyards, along sloping valleys and winding rivers, into charming half-timbered villages.
