May 29, 2020
Heavy armor, enchanted caves and imposing stone walls - on the relaxed 27 kilometer round tour you can completely immerse yourself in the time of the robbers and knights. Look forward to impressive castle complexes and overgrown castle ruins.In Riedenburg, the so-called three-castle city, your journey through time begins at the historic market square. You cycle along the city pond and meet the Schambachtalbahn bike path. The railway used to chug along here, today the former railway line belongs entirely to cyclists. Rosenburg Castle will soon appear in front of you. Take some time, because the falcon's flight demonstrations there are a really breathtaking spectacle.Without large elevations, you continue rolling along the lovely Schambach to Hexenagger, where the castle of the same name sits majestically on a mountain spur. A detour is worthwhile! You can put your bike aside just before Altmannstein, because a mysterious cave magically attracts you. Are robbers hiding their treasure here?Once you have passed the small town of Schamhaupten, you will climb the only significant altitude difference of the day. The heights bring you back to Riedburg with great views. Before you go on to the well-deserved stop, you can park your bike again and tackle the Rabenstein castle ruins. The view compensates for your efforts.
