The Nürnberger Land has over 620 miles (1,000 km) of signposted cycle paths which lead through charming landscapes, along picturesque rivers, through romantic forests and past impressive rock formations. In between, you discover historic towns and quaint villages brimming with culture.

In this Collection, we have put together four routes around the Nuremberg Land region in Germany which make use of the extensive network of cycle paths. The Tours vary in difficulty from easy themed cycle paths to long-distance trails. The stages are between 10 and 25 miles (17 and 40 km) long. The first and last stages are the shortest so you can also combine them with the two longer routes and ride the entire circular in two days or over a weekend.

The starting point of the 74-mile (119-km) circular is the town Lauf an der Pegnitz which is easy to reach by train or S-Bahn. Riding along beautiful cycle paths, you will visit the market town of Schnaittach and continue on to Velden. Next the wild Pegnitz Valley awaits as you ride to the town of Hersbruck and visit the beautiful city of Nuremberg. Following the Pegnitz River you then return to Lauf an der Pegnitz. Along the way, you can look forward to smooth cycle paths and cozy places to stop for a bite to eat or to spend the night, where you will be welcomed with Franconian hospitality and spoiled with regional specialities.
