  • Odenwald

    Bensheim an der Bergstrasse is the largest town in the Bergstraße district with a long history and many sights. You can watch them later in peace. This beautiful, quite challenging tour takes you north of Bensheim out of the city and into the nature of the Odenwald and Bergstraße. On the way, some driving challenges await you, but also impressive views and fairy-tale castles.Highlight of the round is undoubtedly the 517 meter high Melibokus. He is the uncrowned king of the Odenwald and above you can expect a breathtaking view, which in good weather in the Vosges over the Palatinate Forest and up to the Taunus ranges. The increase is of course a bit sweaty, but quite feasible. In general, the whole tour is laid out in such a way that you can negotiate the uphill sections on well mobile and mostly moderate climbs, while downhill fast descents and technical singletrack are waiting for you. A mountain bike Endurospaß of the very finest!Back at the starting point of the tour, you can relax in the Kronepark and then roll into the center of Bensheim, where not only the medieval city center, but - due to the mild climate here - an almost Mediterranean flair waiting for you.
