    This challenging tour with start in Pegnitz really includes everything that Franconian Switzerland has to offer: You drive through romantic river valleys, pedal up to breathtaking viewpoints, enjoy fast-paced, flowing and sometimes technical descents and, of course, always come to cozy guesthouses and beer gardens over, which spoil you with Franconian specialties.There are many highlights on the tour. For example, the town of Pottenstein with the castle of the same name - definitely worth a break! On the other hand, it gets really idyllic in the Upper Püttlachtal, one of the last two car-free river valleys of the Franconian Switzerland. The Brewery Herold Büchenbach is one of the culinary highlights of the round: Here there are rustic snacks and fresh beer.The start of this tour is located directly at the station of Pegnitz. So you can travel quite relaxed, for example, from Nuremberg with the Regional Express. Alternatively, you can of course also come by car and park it in the station parking lot.

    Conditionally very strenuous as there are many steep climbs with sometimes very poor terrain. Sometimes you have to push downhill.
    Scenic a dream, but better to drive during the week, because then fewer hikers are out and about.

    A wonderful tour that is quite demanding for the thighs, but is always rewarded with wonderful trails. Always varied, many sections require attention without being overwhelming. Simply a really great mountain bike tour!
