    Unique history of the old canal, built 1836 to 1846. Almost completely preserved, but no longer navigable.

    Beautiful section on the old canal. From Wendelstein to the White House.
    There you can fortify yourself with snacks and beer

    The path along the canal is unfortunately very dusty. Wheels and luggage are pretty dirty after a short time. With fully packed touring bikes you have to be very careful in some places, so you do not end up on the nose due to ruts or slippery ramps.

    Beautiful tour, one does not suspect this idyll in the middle of Nuremberg. Mostly it is dirt road and not tarred, so we recommend a suitable tires.

    Very nice natural road. Sometimes tight. The river idyll is terrific. A gigantic achievement for the work equipment at that time.

    Beautiful sections of forest. The "passage" under the highway and the tracks is very narrow (especially with a bicycle) and overgrown towards Faberhof. The best way to cross the motorway is via the St2225.
