Cycling tour along the romantic Rhine

Travelling without a car protects the environment, and switching to a bike combines the experience of the countryside with active relaxation. Experience the dreamlike landscapes of the Palatinate, Rhine-Hesse and the romantic Rhine from the saddle.

Rhine, wine and world-class culture

The Rhine Cycle Route runs for over 318 kilometres through Rhineland-Palatinate - and almost always close to the river banks. Thanks to the excellent rail connections available on both banks, you can plan the route with flexibility tailored to your wishes. Historic cities such as Speyer, Ludwigshafen, Worms, Mainz and Koblenz are on the way, as are the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of the Upper Middle Rhine Valley, the Upper Germanic-Rhaetian Limes and Speyer Cathedral. And last but not least, the trail crosses three regions renowned for wine-growing. Enjoy the landscape, culture and a good Riesling in the evening!

Castles, Palaces and Strausswirtschaften (Wine Taverns)

The romantic castles and palaces also make the Rhine Cycle Route an unforgettable experience. Typical Strausswirtschaften (wine taverns) will brighten up your stops.
