Look forward to this special cycle tour that takes you along the... Mains leads, because you start at the still very small red one Main in the famous festival city of Bayreuth. Only at the historic beer town of Kulmbach do the waters of the second source river, the White, flow Mains and only now are you really cycling Main. The course of the river has wonderful highlights in store for you in the next few days. Discover the magnificent baroque city of Bamberg, whose old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, stroll through the pretty streets of the wine town of Volkach and marvel at the old residential town of Würzburg. The Würzburg Residence is considered the main work of the South German Baroque and is one of the most important palaces in Europe. Therefore, UNESCO added it to the World Heritage List in 1981 - as the third building in Germany. This trip is a journey from the small river to the big river, a journey from the beer region to the wine region and a cultural journey that grows from kilometer to kilometer.

Arrive early, it's worth it. Historically grown as a margravial residence and world-famous for the Richard Wagner Festival, Bayreuth is just waiting to be discovered.

Overnight place: Bayreuth

The still young red one Main Follow us to Kulmbach today. A cozy town awaits you here in an enchanting Upper Franconian landscape at the confluence of the Red and White rivers Mains and at the foot of the Franconian Forest and Fichtelgebirge. Visit Kulmbach's old town and the Plassenburg Castle, which towers majestically above the city. Now where red and white Main flow together, you actually cycle on Main! This is how you reach the pretty Burgkunstadt, which invites you to take a break, and the German basket town of Lichtenfels, where you will stay overnight. Here it is worth taking a detour to the baroque pilgrimage basilica of the Fourteen Saints, which was built by the famous architect Balthasar Neumann.

Overnight place: Lichtenfels

If you want, you can take a slightly hilly detour to Banz Monastery right at the beginning of the day. Today the boy is getting stuck Main again and again to small lakes and takes you idyllically to Bamberg. Look forward to the beautiful old town, which has been on the UNESCO World Heritage list since 1993. It's great that you still have enough time today to marvel at the late Romanesque-early Gothic imperial cathedral with the world-famous Bamberg Horseman, the old bridge town hall in the middle of the Regnitz and the old court, which is one of the most impressive buildings in the city.

Overnight place: Bamberg

In the morning you first follow the Regnitz for a short distance to Main, which takes you to the pilgrimage church of Maria Limbach, which is well worth seeing. Now the first vineyards are beginning to mark the border between beer and wine Franconia. End a sunny day of cycling in Haßfurt and marvel at the historic center.

Overnight place: Hassfurt

For a little refreshment, it's worth taking a detour to the pretty town of Theres this morning. After a worthwhile break, you roll on Mainalong the bank to Schweinfurt. Discover the remains of the old imperial city here before you cycle on past countless vineyards and reach the small, historic wine town of Wipfeld. Take a leisurely break, marvel at the town's valuable old buildings and enjoy the idyllic location. In the afternoon you cycle via Fahr, the town of the Bockstaschen, to Volkach - famous for its excellent wines!

Overnight place: Volkach

Since the well-paved cycle path is completely flat today, Würzburg can be reached quickly, so you can take an individual tour of the city in the afternoon. Marvel at the market square, the town hall, the old one Mainbridge with a view of the fortress and pilgrimage church as well as over the rococo facade of the Falkenhaus and over the Lady Chapel with its sandstone figures by Tilmto Riemenschneider. The highlight is the former prince-bishop's residence, which was built between 1720 and 1744 according to plans by Balthasar Neumann and is today one of the most beautiful palace buildings of the southern German baroque due to its unity.
