From Bamberg to Aschaffenburg

In large bends river Main flows through varied country Franken. It seeks its way through marvellous Franken wine-growing area and meanders through Würzburg and once much feared dark forest of Spessart. The scenery along river Main belongs to the wealthiest and most varied parts of Bavaria and Hessen. A long and ever-changing history left many castles, fortresses, monasteries, churches and chapels. Many famous and unique cities assemble along the river: old Imperial residence Bamberg, old residence Würzburg, half-timbered Miltenberg or boisterous Ochsenfurt to name only a few of many. An excellent cuisine spoils the palate of the cyclist: rustic beer gardens and wine-taverns invite to taste local specialities. Idyllic, historic and refreshing - that is Main cycle path in a nutshell for you.
