    Rhine Cycle Route

    Vibrant towns along the way invite cyclists to explore a diverse array of art and cultural offerings. Unobstructed views can be enjoyed over the water time and time again along what is undoubtedly the most interesting section of the Rhine Cycle Route. From the Siebengebirge upland range, the route passes through the metropolises of Cologne and Düsseldorf as far as Mainz at the confluence of the Main and Rhine rivers. Bonn, which is one of the oldest cities in Germany, also lies along the route. The former German capital looks back on a history spanning more than 2,000 years.
