Mountain Biking Highlight
Fränkische Schweiz planned a mountain bike ride.
October 28, 2019
After the short warm-up stage, it really starts today. Around 32 kilometers through the Franconian Switzerland are waiting for you. As is typical of the area, it goes steadily up and down - flat passages are rather rare. The distance is manageable, so you can take your time and stop over and over again. There are good reasons for this.For example, the beautiful and extraordinary dry valley of the upper Leinleiter. In summer, it is dust-dry here, while in the wet season, the water gushes out of the rock openings with a big clamor. It is beautiful all year round and the enjoyment is complete, if you use one of the cozy rest stops and treat yourself to a delicious drink or a small refreshment.A special feature of the region are the numerous Easter Fountains. The inhabitants of the different places decorate their wells at Easter time to pay homage to the water as a life-giving element. And so you will find beautifully decorated water dispensers in many town centers - in Heiligenstadt our route takes you past just such an Easter Fountain. Then it is quiet and idyllic again. And a bit exhausting: high to the pavilion Heiligenstadt the trail is really steep and it is no shame, if you push a piece here. As a reward, there's a really nice view at the top.At the end of the stage you do not need to set up a tent today. Because our route takes you to the Naturfreundehaus Veilbronn, where you can spend a rustic and cozy night. At dinner with a view of Leinleitertal, you can look back on the beautiful journey.Tip: If you are traveling fast and still have time and energy, you could exhaust yourself in the climbing forest Veilbronn after the tour. Around the Naturfreundehaus there are also some natural climbing walls.
