Head to your nearest VAUDE store to pick up a voucher to unlock a komoot region and start pedalling away. The countless trails in and around the cities of Nuremberg, Fürth, and Erlangen are no secret. Indeed, the region has more than a few routes up its sleeve for mountain bikers. In this Collection, we’ve put together a few relaxed panoramic routes that focus on nature, culture, and spectacular views. Of course, you also can’t leave out the most essential part of Franconian MTB culture – rocking some filthy trails!
All of the routes here can be ridden on your hardtail. The trail lap behind Nuremberg Zoo might be a bit more comfortable with full suspension, but otherwise, a hardtail is fine. We recommend taking enough drinks and snacks with you on all routes as many restaurants are currently closed. You don’t want to have to shorten your ride due to a growling stomach.
Please also remember to bring a repair kit and some tools in case of an emergency. If you have a major breakdown, the ADFC offers a bicycle towing service.
The VAUDE stores in Nuremberg and Erlangen are ideal starting points for these routes.
This gourmet tour takes you along the Nuremberg waterways. It is not a major technical challenge and is therefore also perfectly suitable for MTB beginners or for a leisurely afternoon lap. The only MTB element is the Föhrenbruck Trail, which can also be left out. Otherwise, it is very relaxed with a moderate height of 150 meters over 30 kilometers and you can also ride the tour with a gravel or trekking bike without any problems.
Would you like a bit of a jungle feeling without a long-haul flight? Then this tour is for you. With your mountain bike you can explore the jungle in the Reichswald with its overgrown trees.You start in the center and first drive northeast out of the city. The tour takes you over a few simple single trails, but mostly it is about forest trails.

This leisurely half-day tour takes you over the clay pit Marloffstein to the Waldschänke Streitbaum and over the Atzelsberger Trails back to Erlangen. Ideal to lift your head a little and get out into nature.On this tour, the focus is less on trail balls than on the route and nature experience.
