The bike tour from Bamberg to Frankfurt is quite sporty due to the longer stages. However, there is no shortage of enjoyment on the trip. You can enjoy the cycle tour in every respect. After starting in the heart of Bierfranken, the Main meanders its way through Franconian wine country. The landscapes change constantly: You cycle through dark green forests, along huge vineyards and past numerous castles and palaces. Take time to visit the old residence city of Würzburg as well as the small, charming towns of Wertheim and Marktheidenfeld. A different kind of enjoyment awaits you when you visit a rustic wine tavern to toast a successful day. A glass of wine is certainly accompanied by delicacies such as Blaue Zipfel (sausage) or Fränkische Schäufela (pork), which you should not miss on your bike tour from Bamberg to Frankfurt.
