Altmühltal Cycle Path, Eichstätt - Regensburg, 5-day-tour

Cycling holiday in the Altmühl valley...

Bizarre rock formations line the course of the river through a landscape of unique beauty. In the centre of all this lies the "capital of the Altmühl valley", Eichstätt. Artificially created biotopes and beautiful oxbow lakes flank the canal. Picturesque towns and superbly preserved castles lie on the banks of the river. The best examples of this are the three-castle town of Riedenburg and the Prunn Palace.
