October 28, 2019
After a wonderfully quiet night and a delicious breakfast in the Naturfreundehaus, you are ready for the third and final stage of your bikepacking tour from Bamberg to Buttenheim. Today, about 35 kilometers and about 600 meters of altitude are waiting for you - that's a proper mountain bike tour. But you have time all day, so you can take it easy and take a break every now and then.In addition to magnificent panoramic views, a very special cultural highlight awaits you again today: the Fachwerkensemble Frankendorf. No wonder that the small town has already been chosen as the gold village of the competition "Our village should be more beautiful"! 31 partly listed historic farmhouses create a unique atmosphere. In the rustic inn of the village, you can fortify yourself with hearty home-style cooking. Or you drive a bit further to the Senftenberg beer cellar: Here's delicious wood-fired bread and of course real Franconian beer.In Buttenheim you have reached the goal of your stage trip. If you still have time, you can make a very special cultural detour here. Did you know that the "father" of jeans, Levi Strauss, was born here? In the Levi Strauss Museum you will learn all about him and his world-famous invention. After that, the S-Bahn takes you back to Bamberg in a few minutes, from where you can start your journey home.
