Experience the Rhine Cycle Route

The Rhine Cycle Road in Rheinhessen takes you on about 90 km from Worms from cathedral to cathedral through idyllic floodplain areas to the state capital Mainz and to the Rhine-Nahe Corner in Bingen, the "Gateway to the Middle Rhine Valley". Almost without any ascents and mostly asphalted, pleasure cyclists as well as racing cyclists will get their money's worth here. In the north you will find the next stages of the Romantic Rhine towards Koblenz and Cologne, in the south those of the Palatinate towards Speyer.
