From the market place in Riedenburg, the route goes along the Schambachtalbahn Bike Trail to the Hexenagger Castle. The flat section of the route runs through idyllic nature with a view of the Lintlberg with its dry grasslands, which is home to rare plant and animal species. The route then passes by mills and the Altmannstein fortress ruins to Sandersdorf, which also boasts a castle for viewing. The tour then follows the Deutschen Limes Bike Trail to Schamhaupten. The steepest section of the route leads from Hummeltal up to Thannhausen and then through the woods to Thann. The highest point of the trip, Jura Plateau, rewards you with a fantastic panoramic view. If you want to take a break, the Eggersberg Castle is a great detour with the Hofmarkmuseum's display of knight equipment. The scenic meadows there offer a splendid view over the Altmühl Valley. Before heading back up the mountain to Riedenburg, there is an option to visit the Rosenburg Castle or the Rabenstein fortress ruins.
