ENJOY SPORT IN NATURE
Once you hop into the saddle, you can feel the wind on your face and sun on your skin, smell the colourful flowers by the edge of the path and hear the cows chomping on grass as you cycle past. Exploring the landscape by bike is truly something special. And for many people, there is no alternative.
Gliding through the Vulkaneifel region by bike is a chance to experience nature in full. The disused railway tracks and riverside trails offer cyclists a range of family-friendly and easy cycling tours. Passionate and sporty riders can also clock up the altitude metres: steep ascents up into the mountains of Eifel are rewarded with some fantastic wide-ranging views.
Our guests decide for themselves if they want to tackle 900 m of altitude or a 30 km circular route and whether with or without an e-bike and tour guide. The team from the Sporthotel & Resort Grafenwald fitness world look forward to explaining the best routes or accompanying you on your excursion. Guests without their own bike can hire out a trekking bike or electric bike.
