Whether you want to cycle leisurely along picturesque rivers or challenge yourself sportily on the high altitude routes - the Bohemian Forest has the right offer for every cyclist. The routes are well signposted and lead through idyllic villages, past impressive viewpoints and through untouched forests and meadows.

In addition to hiking and biking, there are numerous activities that you should not miss.
