In Germany, the EuroVelo 6 leads along sections of the Rhine Cycle Route, the Hohenzollern Cycle Route and the Danube Cycle Route as far as Passau. Following rivers, EuroVelo 6 vists Ulm, home to the tallest church tower in the world, and Donauwörth, with what is considered one of the most beautiful streets in southern Germany. It also passes through the spectacular scenery of the Danube Gorge. A UNESCO World Heritage site, Regensburg, is the route’s next port of call. Almost a thousand monuments in the town's old quarter serve as a reminder of its Roman heritage, merchants and saints.
Public Transport and Bicycles in Germany
In Germany, bicycles are usually accepted on regional and long-distance trains, but the number of bikes is limited, especially on IC trains. This should be considered during the high season of cycle tourism along the Danube. There are cyclists who reserve their bike tickets one year in advance. The regional "Donautalbahn" train in Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria provides plenty of space for bike carriage and is an excellent public-transport option for cyclists.
