April 14, 2020
At the start of the third stage, you leave Hersbruck heading south and thus the Pegnitztal. A crisp climb takes you through an idyllic forest and over the Reschenberg. The rapid descent to Engelthal is followed by the second big ascent of this stage.It starts out easy and long, but then gets quite steep. At 540 meters you finally reached the pass of the Entenberg pass. Here is a bench where you can rest while letting your gaze wander over the lovely meadows and forests of the peaceful landscape.Then a quick descent takes you to Entenberg. From here you roll on a mostly downhill route through a magical field and meadow landscape until you dive into the forest behind the Scherau ponds. Under mighty trees you drive to the Großer Birkensee, where you can take a bath break on hot days. Past the Little Birkensee you cycle through Schwaig near Nuremberg through picturesque forest.When you get to the Nuremberg zoo, turn towards the city and soon you will reach the Wöhrder See in Nuremberg. You roll comfortably along its banks and reach today's destination at the western tip.From here it is a stone's throw to the city center of Nuremberg, where you will find plenty of accommodation and refreshments. From the main train station you also have a connection to the S1 to Lauf an der Pegnitz and to the local and long-distance trains of the Deutsche Bahn.
