"All along the river" is the motto of the R1 Fulda bike path, which crisscrosses through Hesse for 255 kilometers from the South to the North of the state. And in fact, between the Rhön and the southern Weser Hills, there are many unique natural and cultural experiences to experience. Calm, lazy sections of the river alternate from romantic half-timbered backdrops to an urban metropolitan flair.
The R1 Fulda bike path is not only an experience for cyclists, because the long-distance bike path is part of a broad network of regional bike paths and thus offers a variety of possibilities for day trips as well. On the river bike path, you can cycle through the gentle low mountain ranges with almost no inclines. This makes a tour on the Fulda bike path well suited for families and pleasure cyclists. The moderate elevations and the numerous possibilities for rest and nourishment along the path invite you to an enjoyable and relaxing ride. More ambitious cyclists are able to find athletic challenges, particularly on the connector of the R1 Fulda bike path to the Eder, Weser and Werra valley bike paths.
