Description

The Wern cycle path is a real insider tip for nature lovers.

On 78 kilometres it leads from the mouth of the Wern into the Main near Gemünden/Wernfeld to the source in the Upper Werntal.

The cycle path is ideal for families and leisure cyclists, as the route has virtually no gradients.

It runs predominantly on specially designated farm and cycle paths.

The Wern Cycle Path is a good alternative to the Main Cycle Path for "hurried cyclists" - because it shortens the open arc of the Main between Bergrheinfeld near Schweinfurt and Wernfeld/Village of Gemünden to a third of the distance along the Main.

Of course, the Main Cycle Path and the Wern Cycle Path can be perfectly combined.

About 140 kilometres around the Maindreieck are connected by another 50 kilometres of the Wern-Radweg to form an eventful 200 kilometre round tour.

Remarkable are the traditional wine villages in the Werntal, whose viticulture is partly mentioned in documents already in the 8th century, like Gössenheim, Eußenheim, Stetten or Müdesheim.

Historical buildings, such as the church castle in Aschfeld and the ruins of Homburg near Gössenheim, bear witness to an eventful history in the Werntal valley.

Thus, lovingly small museums with exhibits on the most diverse activities of village life were set up in the gaden of the fortified church.

The ruin Homburg, after the Heidelberg Castle the second largest in Germany, towers over the Werntal near Gössenheim.

It is nestled in a nature reserve that is home to special features ranging from Mediterranean dry grasslands to warm-loving woodland and plant species such as orchids and kitchen bells.

One of the most romantic wine festivals in the Franconian wine country, the traditional castle wine festival, always takes place around 15 August in the historical castle courtyard of Homburg.

On the last Sunday in April the "Radlspaß im Werntal" takes place every year.

The eventful route along the Wern river welcomes cyclists with special culinary and cultural offers.

Our proposal takes you from the mouth of the Main to Arnstein, with its stepped old town.
