Surrounded by medieval gables, you will leave Landshut's Old Town on the fifth leg of the Lower Bavaria tour and turn northwest. At Rottenburg an der Laaber you drive through the heart of the Hallertau, Europe's largest hop growing area. On the approximately 50-kilometer stage, it's all idyllic: Quiet, lined by hops bike paths, Weidentipis and storks are nature-related highlights that you can enjoy as you pass by.Here and there on the way, despite the rural idyll, there are a few opportunities for a short or longer break. In the small market Pfeffenhausen you can relax in the cozy center or in front of the church worth seeing from the previous, only noteworthy increase in the stage. At Rottenburg, an instructive nature trail informs you about the animal inhabitants of the area and the restored barn just outside the village, the "Repsstadel", is a silent eyewitness that you can pause for a moment. If you are after a refreshment, the heated outdoor pool of Rottenburg invites to a few laps.Towards the end of the stage, you roll over the idyllic stork route to Rohr in Lower Bavaria. With a little luck, you can watch some storks on the way. Here and there, small entrances to the Laber invite for a short break on or in the river. In the stage goal pipe then already the Gasthof Sixt waits to pamper you with hearty Bavarian dishes.
