Straight Talk

We want to make sure you're on the trip that's right for you. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.

Navigating Bike Paths

Germans are not only known for their passion for beer, but also for bikes. And that love of bikes has created an amazing labyrinth of bike paths and routes that extend throughout the country. Many of the paths we utilize on this trip are the equivalent of scenic byways, linking quaint villages and big cities alike. While we are on bike paths in larger cities, be prepared for the occasional rush of local riders as they commute and run errands. These wonderful bike paths are refreshingly car-free, which means that there are stretches of limited van support, although you'll still be supported by leaders on bikes. Although most of the paths are smooth and paved, there are some sections of interlocking bricks, gravel, cobblestone and hard-packed dirt that can be muddy during downpours.

Air-Conditioning & Wi-fi

Hotel Zur Bleiche Resort & Spa is a Premiere Hotel housed in a beautiful historic building. While it offers outstanding service and amenities including a fabulous spa, libraries and restaurants, please note that it is not equipped with wi-fi or air-conditioning. Despite the region's generally temperate climate and cool nights, guestrooms can occasionally become warm during peak temperatures. We’re confident that you’ll find these quirks worthwhile for the delight of unplugging at this unique and enchanting property.
