Discover this idyllic river bike route, still unknown to most cyclists. Start in romantic Rhön at 950m and follow the well-signposted Fulda bikeway down into the valley. You cycle through meadows and fields, mainly directly next to the beautiful river. You pass beautiful half-timbered towns and cycle along the densely wooded Vogelsberg. Then you follow the asphalt bike lanes through the river valley. It's nice that you have enough time getting to know the manifold sights of this region! You will be crazy about the baroque quarter in Fulda, with a cathedral, castle, orangery and nobeless palace. The highlight is Hann. Münden, a half-timbered town of European status. Here at the confluence of Fulda and Werra your trip ends or you might prolong your cycling holiday along the Weser.

This trip is perfect for people who:

  • Mountain enthusiasts: The Rhön has something for all hikers.
  • Nature lovers: Fulda and the Rhön inspire with lakes, forests and fantastic mountains.
  • River fans: cycle along the Fulda on your journey.

Tour

Arrive to the small city Gersfeld in the midst of the Röhn. Parking sites and rental bikes are available at the hotel.

In the morning, a short Transfer (10 km), will bring you and your bikes up to a height of 950m. You will follow the Fulda downwards on well constructed bike lanes through the wonderful nature of Röhn. In Fulda you should take your time to visit the famous baroque district.

Today you will dive into the densely wooded Vogelsberg. The romantic castle town Schlitz will enthuse you, before you reach the festival town Bad Hersfeld (tickets available on request in pre-sale).

One of the most beautiful sections of the Fulda bike lane awaits you today! The romantic half-timbered Old Town of Rotenburg is situated within the most narrow part of the valley channelling the Fulda. Melsungen offers lovingly restored half-timbered houses.

Start your day by cycling to Kassel through the floodplain of the Fulda and reach Hann. Münden - one of the 7th most beautiful situated cities in the world (Alexander von Humbold). Idyllically situated on the confluence of Werra and Fulda, the Old Town still impresses all its visitors - with half-timbered houses up to six hundred years old.

After breakfast in the hotel your journey along the Fulda ends. For all of you, who still want to cycle further, we recommend to prolong your cycling holiday along the Weser. For everyone else, we offer our handy return transfer service back to the starting hotel in Gersfeld (always Fridays, departure approx. 9.00 am, bookable from 2 persons).

Condition of cycle paths

On this altogether hilly tour you cycle on the one hand on the Rhine cycle path and the Nahe cycle path, otherwise often in the middle of the vineyards partly on separate cycle paths, partly also on the typical small asphalt roads and farm roads, which are only for the Winzerfahrzeuge (and cyclists) released are. In the vineyards are two short bumpy sliding distances as well as individual non-asphalted passages. It is not always the comfort of a flat, paved bike path given, but then you are really in the middle of the vine on the way, usually paired with beautiful views!

7 speed bike

We would recommend the 7-speed tourer for all those that are looking for a back-pedal brake and wide gel seat for maximum comfort in an upright sitting position. It is equipped with a simple hub gear shift and is perfectly suited to tours on flat to slightly hilly terrain.

27 speed bike

The 27-speed tourer is the best choice for cyclists that value the advantages of the dérailleur gear shift for flexibility whilst going up and down hills. This bike allows you to be a little more active without compromising on saddle comfort and practical everyday suitability.

Velociped E-Bike

 

E-bikes combine a lot of advantages. The electric drive ensures a completely relaxed cycling, even during long tours or on hilly routes. Other features, such as a suspension seat post and front fork plus well-tuned gears, ensure additional riding comfort.
