Franken Tourismus planned a bike ride.
November 20, 2019
Today you can relax a bit on a slightly shorter stage. In the immediate vicinity of the river you cycle through fresh forests, past green meadows and pass spectacular rock formations. The nature on this route is simply breathtaking.At the beginning of the tour you will pass the Weidenkirche in Pappenheim. A natural, open church covered with green plants. This natural structure is a nice place to take a little break.A few kilometers further on, about halfway, you have an excellent view of the 12 apostles from the bike path, a rock formation that can be seen on the opposite side of the Altmühl.At Dollnstein you can experience breathtaking rock formations again, this time up close. Here you drive directly past the impressive dry slopes.Today's destination is Eichstätt, the unofficial capital of the Altmühl Valley. If you want to leave from here, you can easily do so by train. Otherwise, you can find all conceivable accommodations such as a campsite, a youth hostel and classic hotels, guest houses and holiday apartments for overnight stays.
