A delight for cyclists
Unforgettable tours through the Valley of the Brenz
The Brenz region is part of the UNESCO geopark Swabian Alb. Once upon a time, the region was flooded by the primordial ocean, forming an unmistakable scenery millions of years ago.
River valleys and dry valleys there are sprinkled with impressive rocks, whereas natural heathlands are found on gentle hills, too.
The Brenz river rises from a natural Karst spring in Königsbronn and meanders through the region like a sparkling, broad ribbon to the adjacent Valley of the Danube. Cycling here is a real event for racing cyclists as well as those prefering cycling at a leisurely, relaxing pace.
Enjoy your stay in the Brenz region!
