Bergstrasse | Cycling

The Bergstraße mountain road lies between Darmstadt and Heidelberg. You can discover this unique landscape’s Mediterranean charm by bike across over 85 km of cycle routes. You’ll pass several towns and villages on your way, and they all offer a variety of cultural and historical sights. You can tackle the cycle routes labelled with the Bergstraße logo on your own, but a luggage service is also available upon request.
