If you like beer and enjoy mountain biking, there is no better place for you than the Franconian Switzerland, the region with the highest brewery density. There are more than 70 small but fine breweries that produce the most delicious barley juice according to all the rules of (brewing) art. And a small town is even better: Aufseß holds the world record for the highest brewery density in terms of population. And exactly in this place (and to his breweries) leads you this mountain bike tour, which is exactly why we just called "Tour de beer".Of course, more awaits you on this tour than beer. Even the first meters along the Wiesent spoil you with the finest trails and beautiful scenery. You drive across meadows and fields and over a varied mix of dirt roads, side roads and trails. With almost 25 kilometers in length and manageable 230 meters in altitude, this tour is a real treat even for occasional biker - also leaves more time for the visit of the four small brewery tubes that line your trail. It's best to go on this tour in comfort and plan enough time for one or the other break, in which you can treat yourself to a beer and / or a hearty strengthening.The easiest way to get to Hollfeld is by car, which you can park in the parking lot at the starting point of the tour. If you want to use public transport, you can take bus 376, 969, 975 and 067 from Bayreuth or Bamberg. It is best to drive outside of rush hours, so that there is room for your bike, for which you have to solve a bike ticket (or a children's ticket).
