The tourist cycle route “Around Darmstadt” invites you to explore Darmstadt over a distance of 60 km.
The cycle route leads past a multitude of sights, local recreation areas and excursion restaurants. The natural areas “around Darmstadt” can be discovered almost exclusively away from motor vehicle traffic, relaxed on agricultural and forestry paths.
The route, especially designed for families, has, with a few exceptions, only slight inclines. In many places the route can be combined with public transport.

The two cycle trails “Bergstrasse klassisch” (traditional sights between Darmstadt and Heidelberg) and “naturnah” (for nature-lovers) run both along the Bergstraße and intersect at several points.
The traditional cycle trail connects places worth seeing in the towns and villages between Darmstadt and Heidelberg on paved paths and roads. The trail is 84.5 km in length and is marked with the Bergstraßen logo “die bergstrasse”.
The “nature lovers” route also runs from north to south and is marked “naturnah” on a pale blue background under the Bergstraßen symbol. The 83.2km trail takes cyclists along tracks between the fields and through the woods, past lakes and streams to pretty picknick areas with a panoramic view of the Bergstraße.
