Experience the contrasts of the Bavarian forest on this route - the Danube valley and the Oberpfälzer forest. (The description of the route runs clockwise).
After leaving Kollnburg towards St. Englmar and threading through Neukirchen, Mitterfels, Ascha and Wiesenfelden on the outskirts of the Bavarian forest, you reach the Danube plain. The route from Kirchroth to Regensburg is particularly interesting. You’re travelling along the banks of the Danube banks with view of the Danube on the left and the Bavarian forest on the right. Between Wörth A. D Donau and Donaustauf, it’s worth a stop at the Walhalla, which you cannot miss. One of the outstanding buildings of the classicism in Germany built in the 19 century by King Ludwig I. from Bavaria. The next stop is Regensburg, where a stroll through part of old town and a meal in a cool beer garden at midday are quite welcome. The journey continues past Donaustauf along the Regental, a real experience from Donaustauf past Nittenau to Waldbach. It’s not just driving through the Regen valley, no it’s far more the luscious meadows, the dense forest and the peaceful river Regen, which offers all that a biker needs. A stop at the river, dangling your legs in the cool waters, adds a touch of adventure to it all. Past Roding, going to Cham, where a visit to the beer gates (the Chamer landmark) and coffee break herald the final stage of the tour. On good country roads you arrive at Chamerau, where you should visit a 1000 year old lime tree. The final leg goes to Miltach, Prackenbach and Viechtach, rounding off an arduous, but surely enjoyable day. This tour is a great introduction for the second day, as length, culture and delightful landscape are ideally combined.
