Tour Description: Self-guided

This 12 day trip starts in a every special place, Bayreuth, famous for its yearly festival celebrating the music of 19th century opera composer, Richard Wagner (Jul 25-Aug 28, 2014). From here, you will cycle past Kulmbach through the wide Main valley seamed by the gently hilly Fraconian landscape of the beer-brewing part of the region.

Unique highlights of this trip will be the monastery of Vierzehnheiligen, Bamberg and Würzburg. Then, you will also experience two completely different landscapes. Close to Bamberg, you will dive into the wine-growing part of Franconia where the vineyards displace the hilly hops fields.

Further on behind Würzburg, the vineyards disappear again and disappear into the green forests of the Spessart extending down to the Main plains. You will be able to enjoy even, well-paved bike trails taking you from one spectacular sight to another.
