Tour de Murg (part 1)

This bike tour for connoisseurs in the Murg valley is one of my favourite tours. The Murg valley cycle path is a very scenic and very well signposted cycle tour from Freudenstadt to Rastatt. Most of the tour is on paved cycle paths and only the smallest part on public roads, which is why the tour can be done very well with children.

Cycle tour for connoisseurs in the Murg valley

With a total length of 65 km the tour can be done in one or more days. This is not difficult, as there are several culinary highlights along the route.

We have completed our first section and from Freudenstadt down to Christophstal, through the valley of the hammers, through Baiersbronn via Klosterreichenbach to Schwarzenberg. The coordinates from Google Maps can be found below.

After we had a "flat tire" last time and had neither tools nor a spare hose with us, this time we are Mini air pump* and Replacement hoses* of Lucky Bike* equipped started.

We were very happy that the Corona restrictions were relaxed a little bit and therefore the restaurants were allowed to open again - with the known conditions. So up on the bike to a nice day.

You can see the video summary of this section here:



Originally we had as our daily goal the Panorama hut above Schwarzenberg. But the sign in Schwarzenberg that there is only food and drinks "To go" at the hut kept us away.

Instead, we decided to go to the restaurant in the Hotel Sackmann and were not disappointed: With Maultaschen soup, entrecôte and a good glass of wine we finished the tour before we took the city train back to Freudenstadt.

Depending on how many people you are, where you have to go and if you have bicycles with you, the Ticket for Baden-Württemberg* be a good idea.

Please bear in mind that these evaluations were made immediately after the corona reopenings and therefore do not have to represent the normal standard.
