May 23, 2020
The Nürnberger Land cycle tour No. 5 starts in Rupprechtstegen in the Pegnitztal, which you can also reach by train. At the station there is a converted old railway car, which now houses a snack bar and bike rental - so you can ride this round without your own bike. From here you climb up to the karst plateau and can look forward to wonderful viewpoints.A worthwhile stop is the Geisloch cave, which is one of the most famous caves in the Franconian Jura. After cycling downhill, you will come to Velden, a romantic small town with a beautiful barn area. Surrounded by the forested low mountain range of the nature park "Franconian Switzerland - Franconian Jura" you cycle further south through a charming piece of the Pegnitz valley. The path runs below some very impressive rock walls.Another highlight on your route is the Hirsch Bridge, next to which a small waterfall falls. In the beer garden in Lungsdorf an der Pegnitz you can treat yourself to a refreshment before the last piece leads you directly along the river back to the starting point.
