Bicycle tour - “Tour de Spargel”

The Rhine plain with its mild, almost Mediterranean, climate features beautiful landscapes and unique tourist attractions. The tour is especially attractive from April to June 24 for in this period you can experience the “royal vegetable” live. The airy sandy soil and the mild climate form perfect conditions for asparagus’ distinctive taste to develop. Enjoy fresh yard-sale asparagus. Chefs will also serve you traditional fresh asparagus meals and unusual such specialities. The tour doesn’t feature steep hills and is thus very suited for families and not too athletic cyclists.

An Eco-Tour of this “Land of a Thousand Hills” will open your eyes to all the natural beauty that the region can offer: mixed orchards, ravines and dry stone walls, though also culture, castles and other little gems. Incidentally, all the points on this tour are also easily accessible on a local train (Stadtbahn).

Palace-Tour

The region might also be called “Land of Palaces”, and the Palace-Tour therefore takes you past a large number of historic buildings.
The Baroque Palace of Bruchsal is one of the highlights (though make sure you don’t miss the German Music Box Museum at the Palace). In Gochsheim you’ll enjoy Eberstein Palace, named after the Eberstein dynasty, while Gondelsheim Palace is famous for its Nymph Fountain and Palace Gardens. And of course there’s also Flehingen Palace – once the home of the Sickingen dynasty.
