Mountain Biking Highlight

  • Rombea

    The Moritzberg is 603 meters high, forms the gateway to Franconian Switzerland and is known as Röthenbacher and Nuremberg's local mountain. The mountain is a very popular destination for hikers and cyclists. The Moritzberg has only one asphalt driveway, which drivers can only drive up to the official parking lot about 300 m below the summit.

    Awesome view especially from the tower. The key you get in the cozy economy right next door where you also like to hiss after the rise of a beer.

    A visit to the Moritzberg is worthwhile, just be careful: If there is a lot going on, you can wait longer for your drink.

    The selection of trails and trails the Moritzberg down to Haimendorf is great and offers challenges for beginners to advanced MTB riders. If necessary, you just drop off.

    The non plus ultra of Hersbrucker Switzerland. The paved road brings you to the summit with an average of 10%. The ramps just before the end put you right with about 25%. In the season you have to be careful both up and down!

    After a refreshment in the restaurant on the Moritzberg, many MTB trail descents lead down again, where you can hone his technique.

    After sweaty ascent you can rest here great. The price-performance ratio is not right here but unfortunately.

    Uphill some decent ramps, but the descent is rewarding.

    Nice beer garden on the highest point of the route

    With the gravel bike the ascent has to be made from Leinburg, the descent is then very technical!
