For this short but physically demanding tour, we recommend a trekking bike or mountain bike. You start in the pretty Lower Franconian wine town of Oberschwarzach and cycle west. Through a colorful cultural landscape, you can relax in Wiebelsberg with its vineyards. Then the path begins to become steeper and you step up in the shady forest to the Stollberg castle ruins. Above you can expect a fantastic view and the Gasthaus Stollberg, where you can reward yourself for the effort.After strengthening and visiting the castle ruins, you cycle up and down through quiet mixed forest and reach the Steigerwald center after 17 kilometers. With free admission, you can learn about sustainable forest management and wood use. After visiting the center, you roll down to the idyllic town of Handthal. There you can quench your hunger and thirst in one of the restaurants and then head back to Oberschwarzach with a view of the vineyards on the Stollberg.
