The cycle route runs mainly through gently
undulating countryside, at first along the Rivers Tauber & Wörnitz before
it crosses the Danube and heads south.
Apart from a few pushing sections, most of the route is characterized by gentle
climbs, well-made cycle tracks and quiet local roads. Right in the south, the

Your luggage will be transferred from each hotel to the next. Please make sure
that you store it at the reception latest by 10:00 am. As the final pick up time
depends on the number of hotels our supplier has to deliver, we guarantee that
you luggage will be at your hotel latest by 5:00 pm.
For those of you who do not want to use their own bicycles, we offer you to rent
one. These are street worthy all terrain bikes with seven gear transmission,
lights & baggage holder. Please don’t forget to bring your helmet, as they are
mandatory in Germany and can not be rented for hygienic reason. Please note that
if the starting & ending point is not the same, we will have to charge an extra
day for the transportation of the bike back to the starting point.
In case starting & ending point of your cycling tour is not the same, we offer
the possibility (from May until mid October) to bring you and the bikes back to
the starting point with our regular coach along the Romantic Road, which offers
also the capability for bicycle transportation.
