This circular tour takes you from the banks of the Main in a crisp climb to the Schwanberg with the impressive castle. The starting point is at the Bleichwasen car park in Kitzingen-Etwashausen and from there it goes east to Rödelsee with a view of the Schwanberg. In the picturesque town you can visit Crailsheim Castle, which is owned by the wine cooperative. The perfect place to taste the region's wines.Then you drive through the vineyards of the famous vineyards Kronsberg, Rödelseer Küchenmeister and Schwanleite. Surrounded by a sea of vines, you master around 200 vertical meters before you are rewarded with a wide view from the Schwanberg. After you have enjoyed the panorama extensively and visited the magnificent park of the castle, you dash down the same route again.You cycle through the famous Rödelseer Tor to the beautiful old town of Iphofen. A walk through the winding streets is worthwhile and the fine wines of the Iphöfer winegrowers are presented in the vinotheque. You cycle along the renatured seepage to Mainbernheim, which is still surrounded by the massive city wall. Via Sickershausen you get to the banks of the Main and with a view of the island of Mondsee you return to the starting point.
