Cycle tour Altmühltal via Bad Gögging

Dear Sir or Madam, Yesterday we finished our bike tour from Rothenburg to Regensburg and would like to give you the following feedback. Our expectations were partially met, but in the following points waren we were a bit disappointed: 1. Because we were routed from Riedenburg via a branch line to Bad Gögging, we missed a very important and beautiful section of the Altmühltal. We think that's a pity, especially since we couldn't influence the course of the tour when booking. 2. The route from Riedenburg to Bad Gögging ran along country roads and, in our opinion, the hotel "The Monarch" did not fit the character of this romantic tour. We felt out of place in this hotel and the surrounding area and didn't feel comfortable. 3. The travel documents for this section of the route were also limited to insufficient information and details. Our suggestion for future route planning: Leave Bad Gögging out and only offer the Altmühltal cycle path from Riedenburg to Kehlheim. Kind regards, Frank Dittrich-Bösche and Bärbel Bösche
