Franken Tourismus planned a bike ride.
December 5, 2019
On the canal route today it goes from Bischberg back to Forchheim. But you do not follow the loop of the Regnitz, but cycle most of the time along the dead straight Main-Donau-Kanal.The first goal of today's stage is Bamberg. In the city you cross the river Regnitz and cycle to the bank of the Main-Danube-Canal. You follow that from the city. As soon as you have left Bamberg behind you, you dive into beautiful nature. Beside you stretch wide fields and lush green meadows. Every now and then you cycle on the absolutely flat track past dense, shady woodland. Right next to you flows straight the canal, which you can follow far into the distance with your eyes. At the lock Strullendorf you cross the Main-Danube Canal and cycle on the other side of the river through equally beautiful landscape of meadows, woods and fields.About halfway the bike path takes you through the town of Hirschaid. Here you can comfortably sit in a beer garden or even take a break in the adventure pool. Behind Hirschaid idyllic nature awaits you on the canal. This time joins the beautiful field, meadow and forest landscape also old river arms and the parallel flowing Regnitz. On the pleasant flat bike path you finally enter the stage destination Forchheim. Here you have another opportunity to visit your favorite spots and let the day fade away in the beautiful old town.
