Bike Touring Highlight (Segment)
The cycle track between Lauffen and Talheim was inaugurated in autumn 2018. Where previously gravel road was now a veritable bike highway emerged. Partly right along the river Neckar, which is very nice. The fact that the cycle path was also built along the cement works saves a lot of detours and gradients.

the bike path was opened for traffic on 5.10.2018. It leads over the cement plant along the Neckar towards Heilbronn (and back). The way had to be secured very costly, separation from the factory traffic at the cement works, slope protection rock and a railing along the Neckar along (still in places under construction - so beware!)

The new bike path between Lauffen am Neckar and Talheim was opened in 2018. It leads right next to the cement plant in Lauffen a.N. past. The advantage of this bike path is that you no longer have to drive the steep climb towards Nordheim. But over the vineyards to Nordheim is for those who have no problem with gradients, still a nice alternative, as it releases a very nice view over the Neckar direction Talheim.
The new bike path is very well done. Super surface, since the wheel rolls almost alone and there are no more gradients.
A big thank you to the communities that made this bike path possible.

The bike path is now completely paved, where previously many gravel paths were. The special thing is that you can now (after many years) drive past the cement works again. This has made the way from Heilbronn to Lauffen much easier. Very nice to drive and often directly on the Neckar.

The cycle path from Heilbronn to Lauffen was completely tarred in 2018 and in Lauffen am Kieswerk there is now a separate passage. Thus, he is also good to ride on the RR. But will be highly frequented in the high season. The path is almost flat and leads uphill in only two places. So ideal for family trips, as the way leads away from the road and mostly directly along the Neckar. In Lauffen, two playgrounds await you at the Zabermündung - ideal for a picnic - or various refreshments. And if the force for the way back is not enough, you can also use the train.
More ambitious riders can take the loop along the L 1105, but then with some altitude, back on Nordheim and then on the left Neckarseite. Great for a little evening outing. The rise is also worthwhile because of the beautiful view of the Neckar valley in the direction Neckarsulm. If everything fits you can also experience beautiful sunsets here. For families, this section is not suitable: too steep and the bike path is right on the road. In addition, there are no playgrounds or rest stops on the left bank of the Neckar near the river. The city of Heilbronn has unfortunately designated the site for the Federal Garden Show in the middle of the city, so the (existing) Neckar meadows in the south and north of the city will remain more or less fallow. Too bad, but new parking garages are being built so that the visitors of the Federal Garden Show can arrive with their cars and park. Will the parking garages continue to be fully used from 2020?
