What to expect

This bike tour starts in the world cultural heritage in Bamberg, very fascinating with its unique historical townscape. You cycle on to the Franconian wine-growing lands until you reach the residence of Würzburg, also classified UNESCO world cultural heritage in 1982. From here on, the landscape will change slowly as the vineyards disappear in favour of the green forests of the Spessart.

On paved bike trails and always staying close to the Main, you will pass numerous lovely villages sticking out thanks to their neat half-timbered constructions. Short stages and many worthwhile breaks make this trip especially enjoyable.

This trip is not recommendable for travellers with mobility impairments.

Itinerary

Detailed tour description

Day 1: Bamberg arrival
Once you've arrived, take the time to discover the old city, with its breweries and churches. We recommend seeing the Kaiserdom with its world-famous sculptures, such as the Bamberg knight and Heinrich II's sarcophagus.

Day 2: Bamberg – Haßfurt (approx. 37 km)
Today you'll be following the Regnitz until you reach the Main, which will then guide you to the Maria Limbach pilgrims' church. You'll come upon the first vineyards, which mark the the border between the beer- and wine-producing areas of Franconia. Your day's journey will end in Haßfurt, whose historic center is well worth your while to visit.

Day 3: Haßfurt – Volkach (approx. 56 km)
A quick side-trip to the beautiful village “Theres” will give you new energy for the rest of the trip. In the afternoon you will ride to Volkach, known for its excellent wines. Along the way you will pass the city of Fahr, which is famous for its “Bocksbeutel”, a wide, rounded wine bottle typical for the region.

Day 4: Volkach – Würzburg (approx. 65 km)
After leaving Volkach you'll head away from the Main for a bit, following canals until you make it back to the Main. The leveled, well-paved bike route leads you'll be in Würzburg in no time, leaving plenty of opportunities to tour the city by foot in the afternoon.

Day 5: Würzburg – Lohr (approx. 60 km)
On your way to Karlstadt and its famous downtown area, you'll pass through Veitshöchheim, getting a chance to see the bishop's summer residence, as well as the French rococo garden. The look of the countryside is changing: instead of the characteristic vines terraces shady forests now border the bicycle path. On flat paths you cycle to Gemünden, the town of the three rivers or further on to Lohr.

Day 6: Lohr – Wertheim (approx. 46 km)
The Main took millions of years to carve out the close-packed hills of the area. Thankfully, your trip will not take that long. After you pass Rothenfels, whose castle guards the narrow valley, you'll reach Marktheidenfeld and, finally, Wertheim. Take some time to see the beautiful half-timbered houses in the old city during your stay here.

Day 7: Wertheim – Aschaffenburg (approx. 36 km - 77 km)
For your 6th stage you have the choice: If you start in morning and pedal hard, you can reach Miltenberg and its many stately half-timbered houses already at noon (approx. 36 km).

From Miltenberg you can shorten your todays stage and take the train to Aschaffenburg. Direct train, 45 minutes, tickets are not included.

If you keep cycling you will follow on flat paths quickly to the little town Klingen-berg (approx. 51 km).

Also from here you could shorten the stage by taking the train.

Before you reach the huge sandstone palace Johannisburg in Aschaffenburg, you cycle through the wineyards on flat paths.

Day 8: Aschaffenburg departure
Of course you can always extend your bicycle tour along the Main Bike Trail with extra nights in Bamberg, Aschaffenburg or Würzburg. We are very pleased to arrange additional accommodation for you.

This trip is not recommendable for travellers with mobility impairments.
