Ebermannstadt, "the heart of the Franconian Switzerland", is the starting point of this beautiful bike tour, where you will discover the enchanting landscape with its steep ascents, romantic valleys, idyllic orchards, impressive views and bizarre rocks. The route also takes you to the most famous mountain in Franconian Switzerland, the Ehrenbürg, popularly known as Walberla. While you are not allowed to go to the summit on a mountain bike - it is under nature conservation - the view from the wide meadow-covered slopes is also wonderful. From the slopes of the Walberla, it is easy to descend into the picturesque Wiesenttal valley.The relaxed roll out at the end of the round, you've earned before but also: On the track you master two pretty steep climbs on the key stone and the rice mountain. Fortunately, effort and total enjoyment in the Franconian Switzerland are always close together - just before you are back in Ebermannstadt, invites the smallest brewery in the region to strengthen you with Franconian beer and rustic food. Afterwards, you will roll back to the starting point of the tour on a beautiful but quite relaxed path along the Wiesent.Ebermannstadt is easily accessible via the A73 from Forchheim. It's even easier with the "Agilis" regional train, which will take you from Forchheim to the start of the tour in just 19 minutes.
