Castles, ruins and festivals

The cathedral city of Fulda, with its baroque district, the many churches, the town palace and the lively historic downtown, exudes a very special kind of charm. From here on you ride along the river through a very impressive and scenic part of the Fulda valley.

Right after passing through the half-timbered village of Pfordt, you reach the foot of the 4-castle town Schlitz, travelling on partly hilly paths along meadows and fields. Although the romantic castle town, with its beautiful half-timbered buildings, castle towers and ruins, is not directly on the way, it is well worth a quick side trip.

The bike path crosses the Fulda in Unter-Schwarz. The path now continues as a relaxed ride on the old railway track, which was converted into the bike path. You then cycle from Niederaula on a recently expanded bike path through the idyllic Fulda valley to Bad Hersfeld.

You can see the ruins of the Bad Hersfeld's Abbey, the largest Romanesque church ruins in the world already from the distance. The popular Bad Hersfelder Festival takes place here each summer.
