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: Individual arrival in Bayreuth
Once you've arrived, take the time to discover the city with its Margravial Opera House from the 18th century. The city is famous in the whole world for the Richard-Wagner-Festival.

Day 2: Bayreuth – Lichtenfels (approx. 61 km)
On your first biking day you follow the young Red Main to Kulmbach, where it merges with the White Main to form the Main River. Visit the Old Town of Kulmbach and Plassenburg Castle, enthroned majestically above the town. Now as red and white have flown together, you will actually move on by the side of the “real” Main in order to reach soon the pretty town of Burgkunstadt inviting for a short stop. The today's final destination lies just ahead of you: Lichtenfels, famous for its basket-weaving art far past the limits of Franconia. Here, a short side trip to the baroque pilgrimage basilica Vierzehnheiligen, constructed by the famous architect Balthasar Neumann, is absolutely recommendable!

Day 3: Lichtenfels – Bamberg (approx. 47 km)
Let’s begin the day with a short visit of Banz monastery. Along the route to Bamberg, you will see how the Main River is ponded in small lakes several times.

Day 4: Bamberg – Haßfurt (approx. 37 km)
Today you'll be following the River Regnitz until you reach the Main River, 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 5: Haßfurt – Volkach (approx. 56 km)
A quick side-trip to the beautiful village of Theres will give you new energy for the rest of the trip. Forests, fields, meadows, and the Main's floodplains offer a nicely varied landscape and guide you to Schweinfurt. In the afternoon you'll ride to Volkach, known for its excellent wines, by way of Fahr, city of the Bocksbeutel (a wide, rounded wine bottle typical for the region).

Day 6: 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 in Schwarzach. The level, well-paved bike route means you'll be in Würzburg in no time, leaving plenty of opportunities to tour the city in the afternoon.

Day 7: 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 there are shady forests directly at the bicycle path. On flat paths you cycle to Gemünden, the town of the three rivers or further on to Lohr.

Day 8: 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 9: Wertheim – Aschaffenburg (approx. 77 km)
On flat paths you reach Miltenberg and its many stately half-timbered houses. Before you reach the huge sandstone palace Johannisburg in Aschaffenburg, you cycle through the wineyards.

Day 10: Aschaffenburg departure
Of course you can always extend your bicycle tour along the Main Bike Trail with extra nights in Bayreuth, Aschaffenburg or other towns along the Main Cycle Path between Bayreuth and Aschaffenburg. We are very pleased to arrange additional accommodation for you.

This trip is not recommendable for travellers with mobility impairments.
