Map for Bike Tour along the Main from Würzburg to Frankfurt

Day 1: Individual arrival in Würzburg

You start the bike tour along the Main from Würzburg to Frankfurt in the residential city of Würzburg in the middle of the Main Triangle. It is worth arriving early, because there is a lot to explore in Würzburg. A visit to the Marienberg Fortress, a landmark of the city, is a must. From up here you have a magnificent view of the city, the Old Main Bridge and the region you will be cycling in over the next few days. The Würzburg Residence, built in the middle of the 18th century and considered a splendid example of a baroque building, is also worth a visit.

Day 2: Würzburg – Gemünden / Lohr, approx. 40 / 60 km

Today you will get on your bike for the first time for your bike tour along the Main from Würzburg to Frankfurt. Take a detour to Veitshöchheim. The castle there with its impressive garden will take you back to the rococo era. Kilometre by kilometre, you approach the foothills of the Spessart, which is characterised by dense forests and gently rolling hills. Your stage destination today is fairytale-like in the truest sense of the word. Evidence suggests that the fairytale Snow White took place between Lohr and Bieber in Spessart. On a stroll through the Snow White town, you must not miss the fishermen's quarter. The medieval suburb is completely listed.

The Main valley now narrows, the landscape is once again wooded, quiet and secluded. On the way, you will come across Marktheidenfeld, which lies between the Main and the Spessart. Your stage destination Wertheim lies at the confluence of the Main and Tauber rivers. Take a walk through the picturesque old town with its numerous half-timbered houses. If you want to go high up, pay a visit to the ruins of Wertheim Castle.

In the local wine-growing and local history museum you can learn more about the centuries-old wine-growing tradition.
