This section of the Rhine Cycle Route leads through beautiful landscapes on the Upper Rhine Plain, surrounded to the east by the Black Forest and to the west by the Vosges. Passing picturesque villages and vineyards, EuroVelo 15 follows a rich and varied route full of scenic, cultural and culinary interest. On the right bank of the river, it visits Mannheim and the Rheingau winegrowing region. On the left bank, the route passes Speyer (with its UNESCO World Heritage listed cathedral), Worms (one of the oldest cities in Germany) and finally Mainz (capital of the Hesse Rhineland). Ferry connections allow you to cross from one side of the river to the other.
