May 29, 2020
This challenging circuit offers around 70 kilometers of pure cycling fun with medieval old towns, an impressive basilica, magnificent palace complexes and of course a lot of refreshing nature. If you would prefer to make a shorter tour out of it, you can simply skip the detour to Hahnenkammsee. So you save a whole 20 kilometers.In Treuchtlingen you get on the bicycle saddle and drive past the city palace to the Altmühltal cycle path, which soon becomes the Treuchtlingen-Hahnenkammsee cycle path. On your way to the lake you cycle across wide fields, through shady forest and quiet villages. Once at the lake, you can treat your hard-working feet to a little break in the cool water.If you want to drive the short version, you take the Quellenweg via Möhren and Otting to Wemding instead.The Ries Cycle Path 4 takes you to Wemding with its scenic landscape, which with its colorful houses and the village market square invites you to stop. Since a proper pilgrimage tour also includes a church, you make a short detour to Maria Brünnlein. The basilica was built in the 18th century in the Rococo style.The way back to Treuchtlingen takes you past Möhren Castle, where you can even spend a night if you like. Then follow a few more meters and you're back at the starting point of your tour.
