The Main cycle path – from the spring to the estuary

Bike Touring Collection by

Picturesque small towns, nature reserves, monasteries, meadows and forests - the Main Cycle Path, which leads through Franconia and Hesse, is justifiably one of the most beautiful long-distance cycle paths. Along the route, there is so much to discover that it is worth taking some time for the tour. You can start at the Weißen Main in Bischofsgrün or at the Red Main in Creussen. Then, from the confluence near Kulmbach, there are just under 500 kilometers (310 miles) to go. And with the well-developed cycling path being impressively sign-posted throughout, we guarantee the stretch is going to be a good one. A touring bike will help you make the most out of this journey, although you won't run into any major difficulties with a road bike if you'd rather move a little faster.
