Danube Bike Tour Day 2: Tuttlingen to Hausen im Tal

Distance: 32 km

We rode through a beautiful gorge with limestone cliffs on either side and castles perched on top of the cliffs.

We took a side trip to the picturesque old town of Mulheim.  Mulheim’s old city center is full of neat half-timbered houses.  Mulheim is also located on the top of one the hills in the gorge, so there were great views of the Danube River valley.

We hiked up to the Bronnen Castle perched on the top of one of the limestone cliffs.  Unfortunately, the castle was not open to the public.  The enormous castle was owned by a rich guy, so the entire place was plastered with signs saying to stay away and respect private property.

We rode only 2km past Bronnen Castle, and we passed the Wildenstein Castle.  The Wildenstein Castle was open to the public, so we were able to walk around inside it.  The castle was enormous, and it had great views into the Danube River valley.

We had barely passed Wildenstein Castle when we rode by the impressive Werenwag Castle.

Even when we were riding through a beautiful gorge, we encountered cornfields!

The campground tonight was huge improvement from the previous night.  We were not camped in the middle of a public park.  Instead, we had a beautiful campsite next to the river and the limestone cliffs.  We also met another bike tourer from Australia.  He was riding south to Rome going through the Alps, but he was riding a short section along the Danube before heading south.  He said he had to get used to the people driving on the other side of the road in continental Europe. :)

A lot more people ought to read this and understand this side of the story. I was surprised that you are not more popular because you most certainly have the gift.|
