Zellertal Cycle Path

The straightforward connection through a diverse valley from the Rhine to the wine and into the Donnersberg region, at the same time a link between Rheinhessen and the Palatinate. ATTENTION: Blocking of the cycle path in Wachenheim due to bridge work until probably July 2019. A detour is signposted and takes place via the local area.

Into the sunny Wonnegau! Close to nature, vineyards, beautiful views and pretty villages, these are the ingredients for the southernmost cycle route in Rheinhessen. Along the Pfrimm and through the Zellertal she gets in touch with the Palatinate and leads into less well-known, yet historical places like Monsheim. A tour through lovely vineyard scenery and with a course to the Zellertaler-Ehrendenkmal and the bridge torso of Marnheim - two widely visible landmarks.

Route guidance

At the Pfrimmanlage Worms the Zellertal cycle path starts in the direction of Zellertal. From the train station, leave it at the back and after a few kilometers you will reach the starting point on the Von-Steuben-Straße. The next few kilometers are a very special cycling experience, because the route leads through a beautiful park along the banks of the small river Pfrimm and sometimes runs on the dam, sometimes very close to the water. Similarly quietly, it goes on to Pfeddersheim, where a loop through the town should definitely be planned to visit the many tower and city wall remainders. Slightly uphill is reached on a track through the fertile valley Monsheim. Here the hi-wave route, which has been following in Worms since the start, turns north. Now the valley is narrower and has a great view of the almost 100 m higher on the northern slope lying places Mölsheim, Zell and Einselthum. The landmark of the valley, the high tower of the memorial, towers far and wide. If you want to enjoy the views from above and at the same time get to know the three cozy, winding vineyards, you should start the climb from Wachenheim (1 km with 8 - 10% incline), continue on the slope to the west and return from Zell take the valley on the Zellertal cycle path. The effort is not in vain, because from here opens up the best view over the northern side of the valley and ahead of the massif of the Donnersberg and in Mölsheim waiting in the season a beautiful wine rest on thirsty cyclists. Finally, along renatured areas of the Pfrimm parallel to the main road to the west to Marnheim, the last place on the Zellertal cycle path. From here you can continue cycling over cycle paths north to Kirchheimbolanden to get there the connection to the train for the return journey via Alzey to Worms.

Requirement:
Practiced everyday cycling forces, especially from east to west, so from the level required to the highlands. With the approximately 100 m of natural gradient in the opposite direction you can almost roll to the finish.
