Bicycle Tour from Heidelberg to Ladenburg
Tour Operator Henry Heidelberg Tours
Cycle along the picturesque Neckar River from Heidelberg’s Altstadt to the historic town of Ladenburg.
Each leg of the journey lasts 45 minutes and offers plenty opportunity to enjoy the scenic landscape and spot local wildlife along the way.
From downtown Heidelberg we will cycle along the excellent bicycle lanes, built to accommodate Heidelberg’s 40,000 students, to the Neckar River. Here we will leisurely pedal through the beautiful green lawns of the Neckarweise, where students congregate on long summer days.
Then we will ride past the famous University campus to Neuenheimer Feld, which is lined with rows of fresh vegetables. From here we can enjoy many kilometers of delightful countryside, riding on bicycle-only roads for the rest of the journey.
This tour is a nice time out from busy city life and a great way to see some of the beautiful local German countryside.
After 45 mins gentle cycling we will reach the charming old town of Ladenburg . It was once an important Roman settlement, ‘Lopodonum’ and still contains many remains from this time . It also has a lovely old market square with a selection of timber framed houses, the oldest dating back to 1532.
Here we will take a break in a nice cafe before exploring some of the highlights of the town . Ladenburg was where Karl Benz (founder of the first car, and namesake of Mercedes Benz) lived the longest period of his life. Hence we can see his private garage and the world’s first.
We will then steadily make our way back to Heidelberg looking out for interesting wildlife such as storks and herons on the way.
