ITINERARY

On you’re way from Wuerzburg to Fuessen you cycle through three of Germany’s most enchanting holiday areas – Franconia, Swabia & Upper Bavaria. The cycle route runs mainly through gently undulating countryside, at first along the Rivers Tauber & Wornitz before it crosses the Danube & heads south. Apart from a few “pushing” sections, most of the route is characterized by gentle limbs, well made cycle tracks and quiet local roads. Right in the south, the route be comes somewhat hillier. But don’t you worry; it is still suitable for any normal bicycle and less athletic cyclist.

Itinerary: As all cyclists are different in their skills we made the experience that it is better to offer a rate that covers a certain number of days – with the possibility of adding additional days – then to offer a certain itinerary. Send us the Mileage you want to cycle per day, which part of the Romantic Road you want to visit and how many days you have and we will offer you a customized itinerary.

Accommodation: We are using local, typical tourist & tourist superior hotels and inns, which offer all necessary amenities for cyclists. In the tour rate breakfast is always included.

Luggage Transportation: Your luggage will be transferred from each hotel to the next. Please make sure that you store it at the Reception latest by 09.00 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 05.00 pm. 

Bicycles: For those of you who do not want to use their own bicycles, we offer rental bikes at an optional rate. 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 cannot 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.

Transportation: In case starting & ending point of your cycling tour is not the same, we offer the possibility (between mid April until 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.

For those of you who are happy with our recommendations, we suggest the following standard itinerary below:
