About the E-bike tour
Frankfurt has been an important trade and fair centre since the Middle Ages. The city was never a residence, but a free imperial city and has always had a strong civic and patronage system. Our bike tour starts on the banks of the Main in Sachsenhausen, the centre of Ebbelwoi and Bembelt drinking.
We ride quickly and easily up to Frankfurt’s landmark – a piece of Frankfurt’s identity – and into the old Frankfurt city forest. Since time immemorial, it has inspired the people of Frankfurt as a diverse excursion and local recreation destination. Once one of the largest forests owned by the emperors of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation, it is now interspersed with waterways, fountains and biotopes, allowing us to discover tree personalities and objects of comic art.
Out of the forest and into the dune! Surprisingly, a natural landscape emerges on our route, the kind of landscape we only know from the seaside or lakes. We stroll through the area of the former seashore before moving on to shore cycling.
Despite many meanders, the Main is the only one of the major German rivers to retain its flow direction from east to west. From the Middle Ages until the 19th century, the Main was a busy river for towboats, whose course we follow for a while on our tour. A route that has a truly decelerating effect! Where once there were walkers in the forest and towboats, now there is cycling!

We cycle in all weathers. In case of persistent bad weather, the tour will be shortened as far as possible. In the event of foreseeable extreme weather conditions, the bike tour will be cancelled by email/phone to all participants up to 1.5 h before the start of the tour.
