Fancy a bike ride away from the crowds? Do you love the experience of nature as much as the Franconian cosiness? Then get in the saddle and discover the different facets of the tourist region Obermain∙Jura on your bike. Get to know the cultural diversity of the region on the way, rest in quiet places and find out where the home-brewed beer tastes best. Our ten favourite routes will take you to the most beautiful natural places and you will also visit venerable monasteries, churches and chapels.

Speaking of Franconian: the Franconian cuisine will also show you from its best side, because in many places local beers and local specialties are on the menu. With the right refreshment on the bike tour, the altitude difference that comes together on our tours on the Albrand is even less demanding. Especially if you can enjoy the panoramic view of the Staffelberg after the next ascent.
