Mountain Biking Highlight
Planned by VERKEHRSVERBUND GROSSRAUM NÜRNBERG
The 15 kilometers of this hike from Burgebrach to Bamberg are divided into two parts: without major differences in altitude, the first half of the trail leads over open terrain - with a clear view of the Bamberg countryside. In the second section through the Michelsberger forest you can enjoy the silence of the forest. Already on the way two cozy taverns with their own brewery and beer garden are waiting for you, at the end of the tour you are spoiled for choice in Bamberg ...Starting point of the hike is the beautiful town of Burgebach (lines R2 / S1 and bus lines 990, 991), whose historic center you still pay a short visit, before the Kunigundenweg brings you to Bamberg. On the way you cross picturesque bridges, pass ancient monuments, pause for a while at a small chapel or sit at the edge of the forest for a while on a lonely bench. Opportunities to relax from everyday life, there are enough on the road. But not only the mind, also the body gets its money. How about a delicious snack in the brewery-Gasthof Kaiser or with typical Franconian cuisine in the "Old Mill"? If you choose the latter, we have another tip for you: you can eat carp very well here in the area - but only in the months with an "R" in the name, that's a tradition here.Passing old cellars, you soon reach the Michelsberg forest. Here it goes uphill for a while again. At the top you have in a clearing a great view of the nearby Altenburg. A bit higher, past the mast and you've almost made it: The church spiers of St. Michael already in sight, it goes to the forest only down.In Bamberg, it is worthwhile to walk a bit further to the historic city center. And not just in summer: Bamberg is known for its beautiful Christmas market and a detour to the Bamberg Punch manufactory is especially worthwhile when it's cold outside.From the Bamberg train station, the R2 takes you relaxed towards Nuremberg. If you want to go back to the starting point of the hike to Burgebrach, you can take the bus line 991, or on Sundays and public holidays with the Steigerwald Express (line 990).
