    This tour is the complete, official German Limes cycle route. It takes you around 830 kilometers from the banks of the Rhine near Rheinbrohl to Regensburg.


    A recommended division into 17 stages and detailed descriptions can be found in my collection: komoot.de/collection/935228.

  • I rode the Limes Cycle Path 2019 from Regensburg to Rheinbrohl. Hard tour with a lot of altitude difference. Rough tires, small gears and a good level of fitness are not wrong. There is accordingly little going on. We wild camped almost every night. You don't see much of the Limes anymore. In some places

  • @Johanna Good idea, this tour. I'll see if I can tackle a part of it in 2-3 days. Thanks!

  • That's a great idea and you can do it well, there are always train stations, so you can only cycle part of the way. :)

  • I drove to Butzbach last year. But then had to cancel. Will definitely continue. Great fun
