Rothenburg ob der Tauber is a romantic medieval town, surrounded by the original landscape in the Tauber Valley. Here begins the second part of the Tauber Altmühl cycle path, which follows the course of the Altmühltal cycle path. On this stage you cycle today through the Romantic Franconia to Herrieden.After a short climb at the beginning, it goes largely downhill past one of the three sources of Altmühl. From here on you drive along the river through beautiful nature far away from traffic and roads.Halfway around about you come through the small town Colmberg. Here you can make a detour to the castle Colmberg, which towers high above the town. In the castle there is a hotel with restaurant, where you can stop and enjoy good Franconian cuisine.Freshly fortified, you cycle comfortably downhill to the finish in Herrieden. Here you can stay in one of the hotels, pensions or apartments. If you only want to enjoy this one stage, you can simply take a bicycle or bus to the train station in Ansbach, about ten kilometers away. From here you can leave by train.
