A cycle trip on the Altmühl cycle trail provides a special perspective on an attractive countryside. The region has plenty to offer culturally as well. The Altmühl Valley was once colonised by the Romans. In the distant past, the legionnaires gathered in the border area between the Roman Empire and Germania, through which the Limes Wall ran. They left their traces. Spas, castles and fortresses line the stretch from Rothenburg ob der Tauber to Regensburg.
