The Geo-Naturpark Bergstraße-Odenwald is a real insider tip for mountain bikers, a little paradise in the middle of Germany. Crisp trails, rapid descents, steep climbs and enjoyable routes each with varied topography – the Odenwald offers great mountain bike experiences for every rider. In this Collection, we show you twelve varied tours that are just as suitable for experienced bikers as for hobby bikers or families with kids.
A dense network of trails meanders through the landscape and leads you through ancient forests, across wide meadows and up to panoramic hilltops often crowned by an old castle. In between, you will stop in idyllic villages and ancient half-timbered towns which offer an almost Mediterranean flair due to the mild climate. All routes lie along the Bergstrasse between Darmstadt and Heidelberg and are easy to reach, especially from the Rhine-Main area, but also from all other parts of Germany. Warm hosts offer you cosy accommodation and down-to-earth, regional cuisine, so that the pleasure after biking is far from over when you finish the trail. So what are you waiting for? Your mountain bike holiday in the Geo-Naturpark Bergstraße-Odenwald is just around the corner!
