    On this bikepacking tour you cross the Franconian Switzerland from Forchheim to Pegnitz. From west to east - more or less - with some dodges to the north and south, always following the beautiful trails. You will come through cozy, typical villages of the region, get to know crisp climbs and flowing descents and enjoy wonderful views and the local brewing art. Along the Wiesent you drive through the heart of the Franconian Switzerland. You pedal along gravel roads and trails, but the real challenge will be the many steep climbs. The three stages of this weekend's adventure, however, are designed so that you can easily make it in one day and still have enough time for the pleasures off the beaten track.Since this is a one-way tour, the arrival / departure is by train. Both Forchheim and Pegnitz are well connected to the railway network. The two campsites that we picked out for you provide a true bikepacking feeling. So you are close to nature, but still enjoy the comfort of showers, toilets and cooking facilities. Just remember to register in time. Especially at the campsite of the scout house Lindersberg, the overnight accommodation for this first stage, you should clarify everything organizational in advance, just by calling. Then you can prepare well and calmly and get to know Franconian Switzerland in a very special way. Have lots of fun with it!
