Franken Tourismus planned a bike ride.
December 5, 2019
The last stage of the Regnitz cycle path takes you today on the canal route from Forchheim back to Nuremberg.In Forchheim you follow the Main-Danube Canal, which flows past wide fields in a gentle curve. You pass the village of Hausen and finally cycle on a straight section that couldn't be nicer: on the flat bike path you cycle directly along the banks of the canal. You can keep your eyes wandering over the water and over to the other bank. In front of you, the Main-Danube Canal and the bike path run parallel to each other as if drawn with a ruler until they seem to meet on the horizon. Green meadows, wide fields and dense forests line the banks and the bike path on which you ride. Every now and then you come through a place or a lock, where you can take a break and let the goings-on work on you.After Erlangen you leave the bank of the Main-Danube Canal and go back to the route of the valley route. Here you can once again enjoy the most beautiful sections of the outward journey and discover new idyllic spots on the banks of the Pegnitz, which you might not have noticed on the first stage. Following the Pegnitz you cycle into the center of Nuremberg. With a little stroll you have the opportunity to stroll through the market, visit the Imperial Castle or enjoy the historic old town. The end of the stage is the Wöhrder See, where you started your bike tour a few days ago. Here you can end the day on the city beach and take a refreshing dip in the lake. A nice ending, where you have enough time to review the varied cycle tour on the Regnitz cycle path.
