Holidays in the Black Forest – this is possible again after the renunciation of the corona virus. To celebrate this, we present a special tour that combines culinary delights with scenic attractions.
The Baden Wine Cycle Path connects the Baden wine regions of Markgräflerland, Kaiserstuhl, Tuniberg, Breisgau, Ortenau, Kraichgau and Badische Bergstraße for around 460 kilometers.
Enjoy sports on 460 kilometers of bike paths
The Baden Wine Cycle Path begins in Grenzach on the German-Swiss border and continues over the Isteiner Klotz through the Markgräflerland. Tuniberg and Kaiserstuhl invite you to continue north and explore the terraced vineyards. Alternatively, the variant past Freiburg’s old town and the Glottertal can be chosen. The cyclists reach the idyllic Ortenau through the vineyards of the Breisgau.
Past the Ortenberg Castle, the route continues towards Karlsruhe and turns into the Kraichgau near Bruchsal. Then Heidelberg is a real gem before the bike path ends in Laudenbach on Badische Bergstrasse.
Along the way, more than 300 winegrowers, winegrowers’ cooperatives, wine shops and wine tourism highlights such as a corkscrew museum or old trottos invite you to enjoy and discover. But not only grapevines, but also the many fruit trees provide tasty water: around 40 distilleries are not far from the route. In keeping with the theme, high-quality wine hotels, cozy accommodation on the Winzerhof and bed & bike businesses offer restful nights. Cyclists receive support from numerous bike workshops and e-bike charging stations.
