Bike tour on the Old Ludwig-Danube-Main Canal in the direction of Bamberg, so to speak, the complement to our tour "Fürth - Neumarkt on the Old Ludwig-Danube-Main Canal" (see here at Komoot).
From Nuremberg direction Bamberg, the route of the Old Canal unfortunately fell victim to the A73 motorway. Nevertheless, we move in the floodplain of the Regnitz in sight of this old route. Behind Forchheim, relics of this canal then appear again in a few sections. At Neuses (lock 95) and Hirschhaid (lock 96) two old lock keeper's houses have been preserved. In Bamberg Bug nor the sluice keeper's house lock 99th Final end of the bike ride is opposite the lock 100 in Bamberg, which is still completely preserved and functional.
We cycled in Bamberg on the special cellar to "reward" for this beautiful bike tour
Back then it went with the regional express to Fürth.

Nice tour on the romantic Ludwig-Danube-Main Canal. From Fürth, we first drove on the Rhine-Main-Danube Canal to then arrive in Nuremberg to the "beginning" of the Ludwig-Danube-Main Canal. The former route of the canal is indeed overbuilt in Nuremberg and Fürth of the A73. From Nbg.-Gartenstadt you drive then always on the old towpath of the canal along ... Back from Neumarkt it went by S-Bahn.
