May 23, 2020
This round starts from Ochenbruck an der Schwarzach (Nürnberger Land cycle tour No. 15) towards the forest and after a short time you cross the old Ludwig-Danube-Main Canal. It goes through the towns of Unterferrieden and Oberferrieden, which lies on the European watershed North Sea-Black Sea. In Ezelsdorf you can visit the site of the "Goldhut", a 3,500-year-old cult object.Then you cycle alternately through shady forest, wide fields and small towns. After a good 15 kilometers you will reach the historic Ludwig-Donau-Main Canal again and follow it towards Burgthann. A wonderful stop is the quaint Gasthaus zum Ludwigskanal, where you sit right next to the bike path on the water.Burgthann owes its name to the magnificent 17th-century castle complex, which is well worth a visit. Via Mimberg you drive back to the starting point in Ochenbruck. If you still have time, you can make a detour from here to the worth seeing “Petz’s Castle” in Schwarzenbruck.
