FATMAP difficulty grade



The tour does not require any special technical requirements.

It runs largely on asphalted and gravel paths.

The tour starts along the tracks of the Orb narrow-gauge railway in the direction of Kinzigtal.

At the height of the Schützenhaus we go uphill for a short time.

First Bad Orb in the back with a view of the Kinzigtal, later with a constant view of Bad Orb, the Münsterhöhe is climbed.

The ascent is accompanied by boundary stones, which symbolize the affiliation once to the kingdom of Bavaria, another time to the electorate of Mainz of Bad Orb.

From here you reach the Hasel valley via a short trail (mountain bikers who are not experienced in riding should descend here) and paved forest paths.

Past the Haselweiher pond and a Kneipp facility you reach the end of the valley.

The "Haselruh" hunting lodge invites you to take a rest.

On the other side of the valley, the tour goes back to Bad Orb without any special ascents.

If you like it a bit more sporty, you can ride one or the other loop of the Tour Challenge on this section.

Shortly before you reach Bad Orb, you can have a look at old sandstone quarries and the remains of a funicular railway that used to connect the road with Bad Orb.
