Nürnberger Land planned a bike ride.
April 19, 2021
The round south of Lauf an der Pegnitz takes you once around the Moritzberg. So that you are definitely hungry in the land of delicious Franconian cuisine, the bike tour also leads you to a highlight in the truest sense of the word, the Entenberg Pass. On the pass road you quickly get a certain alpine feeling and every now and then you come across a few racing cyclists who train here for mountain stages. In addition to the feeling of elation when you have reached the top, there are also a few delicious refreshments waiting for you afterwards.It starts in Ottensoos at the train station. You drive over fields and meadows first to Schönberg, then to Rockenbrunn. Already at the beginning of the tour, the inn of the same name, which has also been allowed to play in a crime scene, lures you to take a first break. Until the ascent on the pass awaits you shortly after Entenberg, there are even a lot more delicious refreshment stops. But it is better to save the greatest hunger for behind the mountain, then it is a little easier to cycle up the pass.After a rapid descent on Entenberg, it goes over idyllic orchards to Engelthal and from there via Rüblanden back to Ottensoos. At the end of the tour, the “Rotes Haus” café greets you in a cozy atmosphere. If, after so much culinary delights, you are still in the mood for a bit of culture, a short detour to the cultural station in the west of the village is worthwhile. The former train station houses an art museum and a forum for sustainable development.
