Rhine Cycle path Self-guided Cycling Tour

Speyer – Worms – Mainz

The mighty imperial cathedrals in Speyer, Worms and Mainz are impressive witnesses of the 1,000-year-long history along the largest European river. They were built in a very scenic environment at the crossroads of important trade routes. The special charm of nature and culture still exists. On this varied and interesting tour, you can enjoy riding your bike along the romantic ancient Rhine channels, passing many cultural highlights in the largest wine-producing regions of Germany: Rhine-Hessen and Pfalz.Characteristics of the route

    After crossing the river Rhine, you will get to Bingen, where the river Nahe joins the Rhein and where four wine growing regions meet. We recommend visiting the bridge Drususbrücke, which was built in the 10th century, next to the Mäuseturm tower as well as the bridge chapel (Brückenkapelle). The “Volker City” Alzey still feels close to its fiddler from the Song of the Nibelungs.
