The Neckar cycle path is one of the most interesting and varied cycle paths. The "River of Poets" has its source in the Schwenninger Moos and makes its way along mighty mountains, on the edge of the Swabian Jura and the Black Forest.

Bike looks from the Scheffel Terrace in Heidelberg to the castle, old town and old bridge in the evening sun
