Cycle through the beautiful local countryside.
Our tour will begin in the centre of Heidelberg where we will pick up the bicycles. We will then leisurely cycle along the banks of the River Neckar and through the mode through the famously fertile Neuenheimer Fields(observe the amazing fruit and vegetables) before rejoining the River.

Ladenburg is one of the oldest towns in Germany. Once it was an important Roman settlement, leaving it with an interesting selection of well preserved ruins. The market square, with it's 500 year old timber frame houses, is a good stop for refreshments.

If you are looking for a more intimate view of Heidelberg, this is it. My husband and I were so pleased with Henry and the bike tour to Ladenburg (we had a half day tour due to both of our schedules). We thoroughly enjoyed the bike ride along the river and through the farmlands. Ladenburg was fairy tale'ish, a true gem of Germany. Henry was very knowledgable about the area and provided a nice overview of the City and its people. A simple & slow bike ride: flat w/ beautiful scenery. We highly recommend.
