A demanding tour through orchards and vineyards with the red wine and imperial palace town of Ingelheim in the middle. Strong climbs on the Rhine-Hessian plateau are rewarded with great views of the hills of Rhine-Hesse and the Taunus. The Rhine is also part of the game and promises a few leisurely kilometers through the Rhine meadows with views of the Rheingau.Of course, this tour is particularly attractive during the fruit blossom in spring and in autumn at harvest time.If you like it a bit shorter, use our tour tip "Obstroute Westschleife" with a crisp 30 kilometers, which uses a section of the Selztal cycle path and skips the high plateau and the Rhine, making it a relaxed round trip with only one elevation gain.
The fruit route describes a large loop through the orchard of Rheinhessen with its numerous orchards, vegetable fields and winegrowing villages. The route consists of a western and eastern loop of 30 km each, connected by a 7 km long common route in the Selz valley.
