This route is the long-distance cycle route Deutscher Limes Radweg, which leads through four federal states. It is consistently marked with brown signs bearing the club's logo - a lime storm covered by the letters "D" and "L". The aim of the route was to guide the cyclists on well-developed bike and forest trails along the Limes road. Like the German Limes-Straße, the cycle path follows the Upper Germanic-Rhaetian Limes and connects numerous sights from Roman times. History-loving cyclists can look forward to reconstructed Limes watch towers, preserved and partially reconstructed castles, protective structures over ruins of Roman bathing facilities, ramparts with ramparts, ditches and palisades and, of course, impressive museums. Along the way are attractive cities as well as well-known spa and recreation centers along the way. In addition, the German Limes cycle path also offers a lot of variety in the landscape. Starting on the Rhine, it leads through the Rhein-Westerwald Nature Park, through the Lahn Valley, the Nassauer Land, the Rheingau-Taunus-Kreis, the Nature Park Hochtaunus, the Wetterau, the Main Valley, the Odenwald, the Swabian-Franconian Forest, the Swabian Alb, the new Fränkische Seenland, the nature park Altmühltal up to the Danube ... However, since the Romans did not think at the construction of the today's Radler, also with some hilly sections is to be counted on, which challenge the sporty ambition of the cyclist. For the effort you will then also rewarded by the cultural diversity that the bike path has to offer. And the entire route can be divided into smaller sections and stopovers, as the places have very good accommodation and well-kept restaurants to offer.
