About Kurpfalzradler

Seit 2010 sammle und speichere ich Fotos der Radwege und Sehenswürdigkeiten meiner Radtouren. Da es damals nur wenige geeignete Webseiten für Radfahrer gab, habe ich mir eine eigenen Website angelegt. Auf dieser Seite versuche ich meine Radtouren und Fotos so zu zeigen, daß diese zum Nachfahren anregen.
2014 musste ich nach einer Operation kürzer treten, deshalb bin ich 2015 auf Anraten meines Kardiologen auf ein E-MTB umgestiegen. Damit kann ich mich sicher und herzschonend auf allen kartierten Radwegen bewegen. Graswege sind für mich bei trockenem Wetter willkommen - aber ansonsten sind mir Waldautobahnen lieber.
Trails ab S2 überlasse ich denen, die es können !
Meine Touren plane ich immer selbst am PC und fahre diese dann mit einem Garmin GPSmap64 ab.
Komoot nutze ich nur um meine Touren den Usern zu zeigen, bzw. um für mich neue, interessante Routen zu finden. Den Kontakt und ein Feedback mit anderen Usern pflege ich gerne.
Komoot berechnet bei externen Touraufzeichnungen, also so, wie ich das mache immer die Tourlänge (km) durch die Gesamtfahrzeit. Dies bedeutet jeder Halt und jede Pause reduzieren den angezeigten Gesamtdurchschnitt ! Das gilt auch für Fotos und da mache ich oft viele.
Die bedeutet, ich bin immer um einiges schneller auf der Strecke, als von Komoot angegeben.
Meine Touren-Fotos sind auf meiner Website kurpfalzradler.de und auf geo.hlipp.de zu finden !viel Spass auf dem Rad !

      After Bernd and I had to cancel the planned ferry tour last week due to a rain front, we drove the rest of the tour today.
      Since ground fog was announced this morning after the weather report, we started an hour later.
      First it went north to Ladenburg. The small ferry across the Neckar to Neckarhausen is something special. It is propelled by a chain and the ferry is held by a steel cable and a trolley.
      It continues past Seckenheim and Friedrichsfeld into the Dossenwald. There is little traffic on Friedrichsfelder Weg and in Rheinau the bike paths are relatively separated from road traffic.
      On the Rhine the water level was at the lower limit, but the ferry to Altrip could go. The ferry runs without a timetable, whenever it is full and it goes really fast.
      In Altrip we then stopped for refreshments.
      On the cycle path on the Rhine we went on to the Koller ferry. Here we had a little waiting break.
      Meanwhile the weather changed - the sun was there.
      It then went over with two cyclists and a car. Then on the ferry we saw the sign - last trip 15:00!
      The friendly ferry attendant said that is always the case in October - but it was only 14:50! We were lucky there.
      There is little to say about the rest of the route as we have ridden it a lot.
      Cars could be seen at the model airfield at Herrenteich, so we made a little detour. It was flight operations for the retirees! A small group that meets regularly when the weather is nice.
      All in all an interesting round, it was just a pity that the sun had been hidden for so long.

      I found the idea for this tour in a bike guide from Mannheimer Morgen. This '6 lakes tour' starts there at the Sinsheim train station.
      The first small lake is the Rauhwiesensee on Ilvesbach above the stadium. There is even a small fish ladder integrated at the outlet of the stream. It continues through the birch avenue past the Birkenauerhof up to Hammerau. It continues uphill to Waldangellocher Straße, but then it goes downhill along Hilsbach to Hilsbacher See. You can quickly go around this one way.
      Further through Hilsbach and mostly downhill, you pass the campsite to Bruchgrabensee. Here you have to be careful not to drive past the entrance to the lake. There is also a wooden platform at the end of the lake.
      After Elsenz it goes through a ravine first uphill and through the village again downhill to Elsenzer See. You can even swim here in summer.
      We continue through the forest to Kreuzbergsee. Here, too, there is a hill to be overcome.
      The restaurant at the Kreuzbergsee is always in operation.
      A beautiful path with many benches leads around the lake to rest.
      There is a long steep climb up to the viewing platform on Kapellenberg in Eichelberg. But you have a very nice view to the edge of the Kraichgau on the Bruhrainkante. You can also visit the small St. Michael's Chapel right on the way.
      The next lake, the Nickelsee near Dühren, was not easy to get to. Sometimes the paths were blocked by trees, or not as easy to find as on the map. The lake itself is fenced and only accessible through the restaurant. Since I had already photographed the lake from the barbecue area on a previous tour, I wanted to go there again - but - what a shame, another tree across the way.
      On the way home I stopped again at the retention basin in front of Mühlhausen.
      During the whole tour the autumn sun was shining and that was what pleased me the most 😎

      Originally the tour was planned with three ferries, but the dear weather gods didn't plan on seven hours of sun.
      So Bernd and I just drove off today to see how far we could get. The first longer break was at the ferry. The captain didn't want to cast off because of two cyclists and a car 😢
      In Germersheim we bought something for lunch and ate it. The weather changed and that little bit of sun was gone.
      So we drove over the Rhine bridge and through Philippsburg to Waghäusel.
      The weather got even windier and now and then a drop of water from the sky.
      That made the decision easy and we chose the way home via Reilingen and Walldorf.
      But heaven has agreed for a short detour to the kart and cross track in Walldorf. Unfortunately, there was very little to see here.
      The decision to cancel was the right one - it started raining half an hour after arriving home.
      Kachelmann anticipated that exactly!
      If the weather cooperates next week, we want to make up for the rest with the two missing ferries.

      In a bike guide I saw the Schönborn bike path - now I could ride it again.
      Unfortunately it was very humid and gloomy this morning, so I chose the fastest route to Bruchsal.
      The starting point can be found directly behind Damian's Gate in the form of an information board with a map. So we can start. But right in the castle room, I took a few more photos of the castle. The Asamstraße leads to the cycle path to Forst. At the roundabout you should change to the right-hand side on Forster Straße. At the St. Barbera church, turn left from Weiher Straße into Lange Straße.
      Past the club houses and the barbecue area and playground, it's now on Kronauer Allee through the Lußhardtwald.
      Immediately after the Spitzenweidenhütte, turn left on Heiligenallee to Wiesental. I didn't see a sign there!
      At the church in Wiesental, turn right to over the Wagbach. We follow this on a very beautiful path to Waghäusel to the Hermitage.
      The bike path leads directly through the newly laid out garden to the pilgrimage church.
      Of course, you can enjoy the peace and quiet on one of the benches here.
      After the pilgrimage church, cross the roundabout and then turn left towards Oberhausen. At the entrance to the village you come to the Sermsweg. This leads past Oberhausen to the cemetery.
      Shortly along the county road and you are in Rheinhausen and at the ferry station to Speyer.
      The ferry runs in the summer half and only on weekends and public holidays. At the ferry station you will find a telephone number and information about the ferry operation.
      On other days you unfortunately have to make the small detour via Altlußheim and on to the Salier Bridge.
      This is to be officially reopened to traffic in mid-November.
      But if you are lucky enough to be able to use the ferry, you can first turn left on the road in the direction of Römerberg and then after the airport directly in the direction of the cathedral.
      At the cathedral, the sun has now fought its way through the clouds and the beautiful weather was used by many.
      After a lap around the cathedral, we went straight home via Altlußheim and Reilingen in sunshine and 12 degrees cold.

      Actually, I hadn't planned anything, but with the weather I wanted to get out!
      Sometimes over Mauer to Langenzell and then via Mönchzell to Eschelbronn.
      Continue via Zuzenhausen to Eschelbach and then home.
      Easy tour but with a few hills - i.e. meters in altitude.
      As a reward - many beautiful viewpoints.

      Two weeks ago Bernd and I were already in the area, but on this tour we drove about 2/3 on different paths.
      From Waldangelloch it went through the forest up to the vineyards on the Eichelberg. From Elsenz it went along the Elsenz until shortly before Eppingen.
      The route then led past Mühlbach to Zaberfeld to the Ehmetsklinge. There were more sun worshipers than bathers here.
      The path led along the lake towards Sternenfels.
      Unfortunately, the cafe on the corner of Heilbronner-Brettener Strasse has apparently closed forever.
      So continue in the direction of Diefenbach and then to the right to the Teufelsklinge. From here it goes steadily downhill to Oberderdingen.
      There are several ways to get a quick meal here.
      From Flehingen it goes via Gochsheim to Münzesheim and Unteröwisheim to the Brurainkante.
      Here we drove along the Kraichbach this time, as a large construction site on the cycle path along the L554 is also blocking the cycle path. The route along the B3 is the most comfortable to drive. After a 'chat' at the model airfield, the round was over.
      pure travel time 4h15
      With the sunny autumn weather and almost no wind, a longer bike tour is always fun.

      Contrary to expectations, the weather today was also favorable for a longer tour. Since I didn't have any decent photos of the Grand Ducal Sepulchral Chapel in Karlsruhe, this was my goal. At first, the strong tail wind helped me get a quick cut. Since there were longer forest passages on the way back, it was bearable.
      In contrast to Heidelberg and Mannhein, there are real bike paths in Karlsruhe that are fun to use. I was able to really enjoy this on the section from Durlach to the university.
      The drive on Friedrichtaler-Allee is also like the motorway.
      The burial chapel was open today and there were correspondingly many interested parties. Still, the outdoor shots were enough for me.
      No sparing was made here on pomp and furnishings.
      It's a shame that you have to make such a long detour in Karlsdorf because of the lack of a bridge.
      The stretch along and through the Saalbach valley makes up for that.
      Just a short distance through the Lußhardtwald and I was back home.

      For years I have been visiting one of my former work colleagues in Schwanheim. If possible, always on a new route variant. This year I wanted to see the much-praised cycle path on the Neckar from Heidelberg to Neckargemünd. 🤣
      Pure disappointment !
      First you have to drive a long time from the city center to the Ziegelhäuser Bridge on the sidewalk against the traffic. This is actually 1.5 m wide in good places.
      Then comes the longed-for 'New Cycle Path', separated from traffic. The road surface is not new and changes frequently. At least it is.
      When you arrive in Neckargemünd, your own traffic light has been set up to change the side of the lane.
      But there is no continuation of the wheel track - nothing - nada! You are forced to drive on the street.
      You can really forget that! Although it's not better on the other side of the Neckar!
      So on through Neckargemünd to the market square and then to Dilsberger Straße. There is only the bike path on the sidewalk here.
      In Rainbach I made a detour past the Lochmühle.
      The ascent up to the Sotten and on through Haag to Schwanheim takes forever.
      As a reward there was great apple pie and coffee!
      Way home: this time I chose the route past Michelsee and through Reichartshausen home.

      The tour to Ottilienberg mostly runs on beautiful, wide bike paths. Most of the way stations can be seen from the highlights. For physical satiety you can choose something convenient in Eppingen, Kürnbach or Flehingen.
      Of course, there are always nice resting places on this tour, mostly with prospects for a break.

      Small MTB round from Östringen via Zeuten to Pfannwaldsee. Continue through the Odenheim forest to Menzingen. If you are hungry, you can strengthen yourself in the Weierbach settlement.
      From Menzingen it goes on the bike path to Tiefenbach to Kreuzbergsee. Passing the Eichelberg sports field, the road leads down to the Mönchsee. From Odenheim it goes over the mountain, past the Gallus house back to Östringen.
