Bavaria is simply stunning - criss-crossed by beautiful rivers that meander through deep valleys and contrasting dark Alpine forest. Pretty towns and villages are home to quaint traditional inns and eateries, and onion-domed church towers peep above lush green meadows. It's the perfect destination to discover at a slower pace - on a relaxed cycling holiday.

This eight-night holiday is situated in beautiful unspoilt Bavaria. Like Andalucia to Spain, Bavaria is very much the archetypical Germany. Bratwurst, beer and Lederhosen are still the mode of fashion. Behind this caricature of German psyche lies a stunning region surrounded by the German Jura Mountains, dissected by a network of beautiful rivers, pine-clad hills, hilltop castles and pretty towns and villages around every turn in the road.
Welcome to the Fünf-Flüsse-Radweg, one of Bavaria’s long-distance cycle routes. This circular route starts in the UNESCO mediaeval city of Regensburg and takes you on a 10-night journey through the north-east of Bavaria. You’ll follow a series of well-networked paths along a mix of waterways: the majestic Danube, the stunning Altmühl, the Main-Danube Canal, the tiny Pegnitz and the beautiful Naab.
