Hotel on the Main Cycle Path

Passionate cyclists are in the right place with us.

Our 3-star superior hotel is located directly on the Main Cycle Path. The most beautiful thing about the Mainradweg is the fact that despite its total length of 540 kilometres, it only has a difference in altitude of 90 metres. The tour from Würzburg to Karlstadt even has an altitude difference of only 17 metres. Perfect conditions for pleasure cycling and perfectly suitable for all ages and fitness levels. 

In addition to the Main cycle path, four other cycle paths lead through our idyllic region. Benefit from the great location of our bike hotel for a nature-oriented active holiday in the fresh air of the Main-Spessart district.
