Description

Day 1: Rothenburg ob der Tauber
The picture book town of Rothenburg starts off your cycling holiday. Rothenburg entices visitors from all over the world, being the epitome of German romance. Discover the picturesque buildings of the medieval old town, which is surrounded by two walls. A visit to the St. Jakobs-Church is a must, where the famous altar of the wooden sculptor Tilman Riemenschneider can be found.

Day 2: Rothenburg ob der Tauber – Dinkelsbühl (60 km/37 mi)
The first destination of your cycle tour is the town of Schillingsfürst, whose baroque castle complex can be seen from afar, as it rises above the city. Before you reach the town, there is a small ascent to be overcome, as it lies on a mountain spur. Your stage destination is Dinkelsbühl in the Wörnitz valley. The city centre is rimmed with colourful town houses. Enjoy the Franconian delicacies in one of the traditional inns.

Day 3: Dinkelsbühl – Nördlingen (40 km/25 mi)
Today you cycle into an area of high geological interest, the Nördlinger Ries. Stage destination is the former free empire city of Nördlingen, which has the only completely preserved and passable city wall in Germany. One can enjoy a unique view from Daniel, the 90 meter high bell tower of the St. Georg Hall church. Another feature of urban development is the Gerberviertel (tanner quarter), which is almost preserved in its original state. Those interested in geology should pay a visit to the Rieskrater-Museum.

Day 4: Nördlingen – Donauwörth (40 km/25 mi)
You pass Harburg, whose castle is enthroned high above the valley. You continue on to Donauwörth, which lies at where the Wörnitz mouths into the Danube. The centre piece of the city is the magnificent Reichsstraße. The cathedral and the Café Engel are just some of the stately town houses here. Another feature is the Käthe Kruse Doll Museum.
