Biking along the river Nahe valley
bike cycling route along the river Nahe


Apart from an extensive network of well-mapped regional cycle routes, another great route to discover is the Nahe cycle way (Naheradweg) from Bingen to Bostalsee lake. The section from Bad Kreuznach and Bad Sobernheim – along the Nahe all the way – has relatively few ascents and the surface condition is excellent. This must be one of Germany’s most stunning cycle routes. Bad Kreuznach is an ideal starting point for shorter trips of up to around 45 kilometres through Rhenish Hesse or through the picturesque Alsenz valley.
Planning your own route is simple with 100 kilometres of clearly signposted cycle paths.

The Nahe cycle way

128 km from Bingen to Bad Kreuznach, Bad Münster am Stein-Ebernburg, Bad Sobernheim, Idar-Oberstein, Birkenfeld and Nohfelden.

The route runs along the River Nahe. Just hop on the regional train if you get tired – the route follows the train line.

Sections: Bingen – Bad Sobernheim: 47 km, Bad Sobernheim – Idar-Oberstein: 34 km – Idar-Oberstein to the end: 47 km.

From Bingen to Bad Kreuznach, the route runs across the flood plain and the scenery is quite simply stunning. Once you reach Bad Kreuznach, you cross the Old Town and spa district to the ruggedly beautiful rocky landscape that follows. The cycle way then continues to Bad Sobernheim via the vineyards of Niederhausen. Cyclists of all abilities will have no trouble as far as Idar-Oberstein. The section that follows is more demanding.

Ellerbachtal – Gräfenbachtal: valley to valley

Route: Bad Kreuznach – Rüdesheim – Weinsheim – Burgsponheim – Bockenau – Allenfeld – Argenschwang– Wallhausen– Dalberg – Gutenberg – Bad Kreuznach

Distance: 34 km, ascent: 330 metres

A lovely cycle tour with a stiff climb after Bockenau. This former narrow-gauge railway line runs through gently rolling hills.
