Welcome to your bike tour along the German Wine Route! Experience the Palatinate on this bike tour along the Rhine and Neckar rivers – not only will you get to see the beautiful landscape of the Rhine levels and the gentle rolling hills of the German wine route, but you will also become familiar with the very special Palatinate culture. Open and sociable are the key characteristics of the people in this region. It is no coincidence that some of the best wines come from this area. Along the route you will pedal through lots of old, idyllic wine-growing villages. The sections of the route will introduce you to unique sights of local culture, for example the imperial cathedrals in Speyer or Worms. You will also have the chance to visit the world-famous castle in Heidelberg during your bike tour along the German Wine Route.

Bike Tour German Wine Route Heidelberg

Day 1: Individual arrival in Neustadt

Your bike tour along the German Wine Route begins in Neustadt, which lies at the foot of the Palatinate forest. Some of the best wines come from this pretty village with its windy streets and beautifully restored historic centre. High above the town, forest and vineyards sits Hambach Castle. Ever since a huge festival in 1832 it has become symbolic with the German democratic movement. Reserved rental bicycles are parked at the hotel ready for you.

Day 2: Neustadt – Speyer – Heidelberg, approx. 55 km

Cycling through idyllic wine-growing villages of the Rhine plain on vintners’ paths, you will soon reach Speyer, one of Germany’s oldest cities. Why not visit the impressive cathedral – it was once destined to be the occident’s largest church. After a stroll through Speyer’s historic centre, you continue cycling towards Schwetzingen, where we recommend you take some time exploring the large park around the castle. It truly is a masterclass in the art of gardening. When you’re in the old university city of Heidelberg, you have reached today’s final destination. Discover its beautiful castle, stroll through its narrow alleys and enjoy the vibrant cultural scene.

Day 3: Heidelberg – Worms, approx. 45 km

Today you cycle to the historic town of Ladenburg. This is where the Romans once built thermal baths and theatres. The section along the Rhine levels to Worms is very pleasant to cycle. Worms cathedral, dating back to the 11th and 12 centuries, exhibits Roman features and makes a striking impression. The oldest intact Jewish cemetery in Europe is to be found in Worms.

Day 4: Worms – Bad Dürkheim, approx. 40 km

A wonderful section of the trip along the northern wine route to Bad Dürkheim is on the agenda today. Along the route you pass Neu-Leiningen, which is located in an idyllic position on the slopes of the Palatinate forest. The silhouette of the ruined castle projects majestically over the town's skyline. We recommend doing a tour of the town walls in Freinsheim. At the east edge of the Palatinate forest you reach Bad Dürkheim.

Day 5: Bad Dürkheim – Neustadt, approx. 20 km

The route takes you through the wonderful landscape of the Haardt, a low mountain range in the Palatinate. Wine-growing villages, steeped in history, invite you to stop for a glass of wine. And we particularly recommend visiting the ruined Wachtenburg castle. From here you can stand and admire the panorama of the Rhine levels, an amazing view and the reason why it is known as the Palatinate Balcony.

Day 6: Individual departure or extension of stay

After breakfast your bike tour along the German Wine Route comes to an end. We would also be more than happy to extend your holiday if you want to stay longer.
