      This challenging circuit offers around 70 kilometers of pure cycling fun with medieval old towns, an impressive basilica, magnificent palace complexes and of course a lot of refreshing nature. If you would prefer to make a shorter tour out of it, you can simply skip the detour to Hahnenkammsee. So you save a whole 20 kilometers.In Treuchtlingen you get on the bicycle saddle and drive past the city palace to the Altmühltal cycle path, which soon becomes the Treuchtlingen-Hahnenkammsee cycle path. On your way to the lake you cycle across wide fields, through shady forest and quiet villages. Once at the lake, you can treat your hard-working feet to a little break in the cool water.If you want to drive the short version, you take the Quellenweg via Möhren and Otting to Wemding instead.The Ries Cycle Path 4 takes you to Wemding with its scenic landscape, which with its colorful houses and the village market square invites you to stop. Since a proper pilgrimage tour also includes a church, you make a short detour to Maria Brünnlein. The basilica was built in the 18th century in the Rococo style.The way back to Treuchtlingen takes you past Möhren Castle, where you can even spend a night if you like. Then follow a few more meters and you're back at the starting point of your tour.

      Heavy armor, enchanted caves and imposing stone walls - on the relaxed 27 kilometer round tour you can completely immerse yourself in the time of the robbers and knights. Look forward to impressive castle complexes and overgrown castle ruins.In Riedenburg, the so-called three-castle city, your journey through time begins at the historic market square. You cycle along the city pond and meet the Schambachtalbahn bike path. The railway used to chug along here, today the former railway line belongs entirely to cyclists. Rosenburg Castle will soon appear in front of you. Take some time, because the falcon's flight demonstrations there are a really breathtaking spectacle.Without large elevations, you continue rolling along the lovely Schambach to Hexenagger, where the castle of the same name sits majestically on a mountain spur. A detour is worthwhile! You can put your bike aside just before Altmannstein, because a mysterious cave magically attracts you. Are robbers hiding their treasure here?Once you have passed the small town of Schamhaupten, you will climb the only significant altitude difference of the day. The heights bring you back to Riedburg with great views. Before you go on to the well-deserved stop, you can park your bike again and tackle the Rabenstein castle ruins. The view compensates for your efforts.

      On this varied tour through the beautiful Altmühltal you dive deep into the jura2000 region with your bike, which gives the tour its name. A special highlight are the enchanting towns of Dietfurt, Beilngries, Breitenbrunn and Berching, which entice you to explore the Middle Ages and Baroque.Your tour on the donkey starts in Dietfurt at the "Chinese fountain".

If cycling made you hungry, you have come to the right place to stop at the market square.From now on you have to pedal a little harder because you climb to the Jura. Once you have passed Oening and Winterzhofen, you race back down to the Sulztal and Berching. Medieval flair awaits you here in its purest form with the most beautiful half-timbered houses and an imposing weir system.

      On this technically demanding tour to the highest peak in the Franconian Forest, the Döbraberg, you can enjoy fantastic panoramic views of the region in addition to single root trails.The crisp mountain bike tour starts in the beautiful Schwarzenbach am Wald. After a first fast descent you will find yourself on a decent climb that takes you up to 794 meters on gravel forest paths. Hopefully you still have strength in your calves on the summit of the Döbraberg or simply use the ascent of the steel Prince Luitpold Tower as a compensatory movement. Your effort will be rewarded with views of the Fichtel Mountains, the Thuringian Forest and the Ore Mountains.As soon as you get back on the saddle, it goes down. In a zigzag you steer your bike up to the Bischofsmühle, where you can enjoy hearty drinks and a cool beer in the middle of the forest.It continues over hill and dale, up and down again and again. The pretty Heinersreuth Castle emerges from the fir tree tops. Take a good look at it from the outside, because you cannot get in through private ownership.The narrow Köstenhof Trail takes you down to Köstenhof, rich in roots and jagged. From here you have again a few small inclines with alternating slopes on the way back to Schwarzenbach in front of you. The last piece also remains exciting.

      The approximately 40-kilometer mountain bike tour demands a lot of fitness from you. On gravel paths, partly asphalt and demanding short trail and single trail passages, you can get to the wild and romantic Steinach Valley with the unique Steinach Gorge.In the center of Presseck you get on your saddle and cycle past the Evangelical Trinity Church into nature. If you like, you can of course park your bike briefly and take a look at the impressive church with its ceiling and wall paintings.After a mini climb, you dash down into the Steinachklamm. Once at the bottom, you can and should shift down a gear and soak up one of the most beautiful areas of the Franconian Forest. After all, Thor is said to have created the valley through which the Steinach winds with his hammer. From the Steinach rock around the corner you have a great view of Stadtsteinach.From now on the calves get something to do, because it goes uphill. Once you have mastered around 200 vertical meters, you race down to the pretty chapel on the Traischelberg. A resting bench invites you to take a break. The narrow Köstenhof Trail gives you a rooty farewell to the great route before you arrive in Presseck again.

      The tour captivates with one thing: crisp altitude! In return you will be served numerous magnificent views, best single trails and fast descents. Forests, open spaces, ridges and valleys ensure that you don't get bored. If you want to keep it a little shorter, you can turn to Wolfersgrün.The almost 50 km long demanding tour starts in the rafting town of Wallenfels in the valley of the Wild Rodach. Once you have left the hiking parking lot behind you, the first climb is already waiting. You already enjoy great views from a beautiful trail, then the path becomes a gravel track. In the Silberberghütte you can relax from the steep passage with a view of the Rodach Valley.The first rapid descent takes you to the Leunitztal. After following the river for a while, you can look forward to a roller coaster ride through the forest. Short uphill sections alternate with fast descents. At the Max-Marien-Quelle you can fill your bottle with fresh spring water that you need for the next calf-biting climb.In the Lamitztal you can let your bike roll leisurely. Perhaps you will also make a detour to the Floßlände Schnappenhammer, where raft trips on the Wilder Rodach take place from May to September. If you have tackled the last mountain to the Schlossberg chapel, you have almost returned to the starting point. From here it is (almost) only downhill.
