In Germany, the EuroVelo 6 leads along sections of the Rhine Cycle Route, the Hohenzollern Cycle Route and the Danube Cycle Route as far as Passau. EuroVelo 6 is also part of the national long-distance cycle route network in Germany as D-Route 5 and 6. Following rivers, EuroVelo 6 vists Ulm, home to the tallest church tower in the world, and Donauwörth, with what is considered one of the most beautiful streets in southern Germany. It also passes through the spectacular scenery of the Danube Gorge. A UNESCO World Heritage site, Regensburg, is the route’s next port of call. Almost a thousand monuments in the town's old quarter serve as a reminder of its Roman heritage, merchants and saints.

Public Transport and Bicycles in Germany

In Germany, bicycles are usually accepted on regional and long-distance trains, but the number of bikes is limited, especially on IC trains. This should be considered during the high season of cycle tourism along the Danube. There are cyclists who reserve their bike tickets one year in advance. The regional "Donautalbahn" train in Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria provides plenty of space for bike carriage and is an excellent public-transport option for cyclists.

[EV6] Part 2 - Hohenzollern Cycle Route

From the Danube to Lake Constance. Tuttlingen’s local mountain, the Witthoh, is the only hill on this section of the route. The route is then almost entirely downhill, whereby the considerably milder climate that prevails around Lake Constance can be felt the further one travels. The tour then continues along the Stockacher Aach tributary of the Rhine to Ludwigshafen beside Lake Constance where the Hohenzollern Cycle Route ends.
