The Rhine Cycle Route passes through three of Rhineland-Palatinate’s tourism regions. From the border with France in the south, it traverses the Palatinate, Rhenish Hesse and the Rhine Valley until it reaches the North Rhine-Westphalia border at Rolandseck. It utilises stretches of tow path, often under high poplar trees directly on the river banks, but also loops around sections of the Altrhein river and some built-up areas.
This section of the famous “Véloroute Rhin” keeps to the left bank of the Rhine as it passes through Germersheim, Speyer, Ludwigshafen and Worms, and features plenty of interesting sights. In Germersheim, you can visit the fortress and Weissenburg Gate. The impressive cathedral towns of Speyer and Worms are also well worth a visit.
NB: The Rhine Cycle Route in Germersheim between Rhine-Km 383 and the entrance to the Rhine meadows is closed due to landscaping work on the Rhine meadows and river banks. The work is scheduled to last until the end of May 2017. There is a signposted diversion along parallel routes.
Picturesque villages and countless museum treasures are perfect for detours and stopovers en route.
Cyclists must obey the German highway code (StVo).
Please wear a helmet. Touring bicycle or bike with multiple gears, weatherproof clothing, drinks and supplies.
