Romantic Road, Würzburg – Schwangau/Füssen, 12-day-tour

Bicycle tour on the Romantic Road...

You start your bicycle tour in the baroque city of Würzburg and cycle through the delightful Tauber valley to Tauberbischofsheim. Castles pay a courtesy visit, in many houses of worship you will encounter the wood-carved works of art by Tilmann Riemenschneider before you come to the lovely town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber.

From the second half of the tour you can expect different landscapes: the Keuperbergland (mountainous area), the Wörnitz valley, the Nördlinger Ries and last but not least the Danube valley. The Lech accompanies you from Donauwörth through an urban Bavarian landscape. Impressive castles near Füssen form a royal end to your bike tour.
