Enjoyable wine cycling in the southwest
On the Baden Wine Cycle Route, in sunny southwest Germany, the name is program. Vineyards line the route, as do numerous regional winegrowers. In addition to the picturesque landscape, they invite you to take a break and taste wine and regional products.
The route is a must for gourmets, but it is also well suited for families. The hilly route leads mostly away from road traffic through Baden-Württemberg. The Romans once brought wine growing to the Black Forest region. But besides this culinary highlight, there is much more to discover. Shortly after the start at the Swiss border, Weil am Rhein awaits with culture and history such as the Vitra Design Museum. Afterwards, on one of the two route alternatives, you can visit the old town of Freiburg im Breisgau, which is well worth seeing. You can learn a lot about the history of Roman winegrowing at the Roman Museum in Heitersheim. In Durlach, Staufenberg Castle invites you to take a cultural-historical break amidst vineyards, as does a stopover at one of the 300 wineries along the route. After historic Heidelberg, the tour ends in Laudenbach. With numerous e-charging stations, cycle workshops and bed+bike establishments, the region is well prepared for cyclists - also for those with electric drives.
