The bike tour goes from St. Goar along the Rhine via Oberwesel the city of towers to the ferry to Kaub. In Oberwesel it is worth stopping for a walk over the town wall. Every 10 to 15 minutes, the ferry crosses over to Kaub along the Pfalzgrafenstein Castle. On the other side, the path leads past the legendary Loreley Rock to St. Goarshausen. There the ferry crosses over to St. Goar. Great views of Rheinfels Castle in St. Goar, the Loreley Rock, Schönburg Castle in Oberwesel, Katz Castle, the Pfalz near Kaub and Gutenfels Castle between Kaub and St. Goarshausen are guaranteed.
