December 5, 2019
On the second stage the valley route of the RegnitzRadweg takes you from Forchheim to Bischberg near Bamberg. If you have not seen so much of Forchheim the day before, it's worth paying a visit to the old town before the tour. You can discover such great relics as the fish boxes on the Wiesent.After leaving Forchheim, you'll cycle through beautiful open fields, driving here and there along shady forest edges. Even small charming places with pretty half-timbered houses are on the way. Here you can not only stroll comfortably through the old town centers and in beautiful restaurants and cafes, but in Buttenheim for example, visit the Levi Strauss Museum, where you will learn all about the inventor of jeans.At Pettstadt, you will take a rustic ferry to the other side of the Regnitz and then cycle through wide meadows and fields that stretch between the river and the Main-Danube Canal. At the gates of Bamberg you follow the Regnitz through an idyllic park into the city. You cycle past some of Bamberg's most beautiful corners and can admire the old town hall or the fishing settlement "Little Venice" from the bike. Shortly before you leave Bamberg, the Regnitz flows into the Main-Danube Canal, on whose banks you cycle to Bischberg, the stage destination.Here the canal flows into the Main and you have completed the valley route and thus the first half of the Regnitz cycle path. The next two stages will take you back to Nuremberg on the canal route. But now you can celebrate the halftime and make yourself comfortable in Bischberg or the nearby Bamberg.Tip: If you do not have enough time to cycle back to Nuremberg, you can also take the train in Bamberg.
