June 5, 2020
This leisurely circular tour through the valleys of the rough and rich Ebrach and the foothills of the Steigerwald is suitable for the whole family. The absolute highlight is a visit to the magnificent Weissenstein Castle in Pommersfelden. You start in Burgebrach and cycle past meadows and fields up a small hill. Accompanied by the Fischgallgraben stream, you pass Hirschbrunn and Steppach and can already see the famous Baroque castle in the distance. After you have crossed the tracks of the Upper Franconian Steigerwaldbahn, you will reach Pommersfelden and the Weisseinstein Castle: Both from the outside and from the inside, the system is absolutely impressive and the park is a feast for the eyes. After an extensive sightseeing tour, the path leads you through the valley of the rich Ebrach and then through forests and fields to the north. Along the Rauhen Ebrach, which is surrounded by wide meadows, you drive back to the starting point in Burgebrach.
