One of the largest and most successful projects of the Brückenau Rhönallianz is the construction of a cycle path on the former railway line in the upper Sinntal valley.

The approximately 26-kilometer-long "Rhönexpress Bahn-Radweg" is a true parade route. It leads from Zeitlofs to the Wildflecken marketsquare and runs on the former route of the Sinntalbahn (railway). Where trains used to roar through the idyllic landscape, cyclists can now enjoy the natural surroundings on a well-developed and comfortable route. Because cycling along the former railway line has a big advantage: thanks to the even, slight incline, cyclists are completely effortless on the entire tour. This makes the Rhönexpress cycle path the ideal route for family trips and is also well suited for inline skaters. But touring cyclists are also on the new route: As a section of the long-distance cycle path "From Main to Rhön", it is connected to the region's extensive long-distance network.

The tour through the Sinntal can be continued to Gemünden am Main.

Author’s recommendation

The German Bicycle Museum is a great intermediate destination along the route. Be sure to include a visit to the museum on your tour.

Safety information

The tourist paths of the Rhön are mostly used by other active people (hikers, mountain bikers, cyclists, walkers, horse riders, cross-country skiers, etc.).

We ask all active nature sports enthusiasts to show consideration for one another. Of course, the same applies to nature - it is worth protecting. In the Rhön, nature sports should therefore only be practiced in daylight on designated paths and areas.
