Contrasting program: After crossing the gloomy Gramschatzer forest, we go through bright yellow rapeseed fields, which let us quickly forget the gray winter.

In the many wine taverns and winegrower’s inns, too, peace and comfort are fairly high on the menu.

The icing on the cake: curves are not neglected on this tour either. But watch out, because dust, clay and debris have not yet been washed away and the senses have not yet been sharpened.

The wine island: Nordheim is ring-shaped surrounded by the Main. The Vogelsburg towers above the “mainland”. On the steep slopes, around thirty wineries take care of the good wine from the island.

The MOTORRADScout poses for the photo near Lohr am Main. The beautiful motorcycle routes are found to the left and right of the main valley. So put on your helmet and let’s go.

This is what spring tastes like: white flowers and green meadows, dotted with yellow. If you get stuck on the sofa at the weekend, it’s your own fault – unless you’re watching MotoGP.

On horseback or on a motorcycle, Mainfranken is an excellent place to spend the night. Also because the prices are not skyrocketing, the Franconian cuisine, on the other hand, shoots the bird.

Aim high: the guest rooms of the tree house hotel near Grafendorf at lofty heights. But if you prefer to stay on the ground, you will also find peace and quiet – and don’t have to turn your suitcase up the stairs.

Water and wine

Where gurgling watercourses and sunny vineyards define the landscape, you have a good chance of encountering spring. For example in the wine-blissful Main Franconia.

Wine and water accompany our spring tour through Main Franconia. Framed by the Spessart in the west and the Franconian Switzerland in the east, our route meanders between the two overcrowded motorcycle areas on dreamy side routes along countless rivers and rivers. So that we can take the best of the region with us, Manfred, Tom and Christian from HMF Motorrader in Wurzburg gave us their route tips through Mainfranken. At this point: thank you very much for your kind support!

We start from the A 7, exit 100 and float over the Gramschatzer forest down into the Main Valley, which doesn’t really knock our socks off here, which is why we head west at Karlstadt. And again: the Main, which we will cross several times as windy journeymen. In Lohr we keep to the right and reach Gemunden on the quiet Main side. Over a beautiful loop through the Bavarian Spessart we come to Burgsinn, from where a small road leads us to the new castle and over a densely wooded side route to the Franconian Saale, which we accompany on a winding loop to Hammelburg.

Little traffic, winding mountain roads and great vantage points

A dream: the Franconian Saale around Morlesau. If you are looking for a very exotic place to stay in this picture-book landscape, you can settle in the tree house hotel Seemuhle, which is due to open in spring 2014. Or you can go conventionally to one of the nice and rustic country inns around Hammelburg. Tip: the motorcycle-friendly Gasthof Noeth in Morlesau, right on the recorded route.

Little traffic, winding mountain routes to the left and right of the Franconian Saale and great vantage points, for example from Sodenberg, characterize this section of the route. We continue to the east, where behind Stadtlauringen we climb the Habberge, which are up to 400 meters high.

This is what spring tastes like: white flowers and green meadows, dotted with yellow. If you get stuck on the sofa at the weekend, it’s your own fault – unless you’re watching MotoGP.

Via Konigsberg in Bavaria we curve back towards the Main in the best sense of the word. However, not in a direct way, but in two generous loops to puzzle together the most beautiful stretches and curves. At Appendorf we leave the idyllic Lautertal and quickly bring the annoying accumulation of expressways and railway lines in the Main valley behind us. At Eltmann’s we climb into the Steigerwald. Over the valley of the Rauhen Ebrach the route leads us to the imposing monastery building in Ebrach, today a juvenile prison. On the way to Oberschwarzach we make a detour to the cul-de-sac to Handthal.

There is a nice motorcycle pub and the viewpoint on the Stollberg for a break. Heading west we reach the Main near Nordheim and cross it by ferry. Strictly speaking, we are leaving an island that is surrounded by the Main and the Main Canal between Volkach and Schwarzach. It goes steeply uphill through the geometrically accurate vineyards in the direction of the A 7, where we end our journey. MOTORRAD wishes you a lot of fun and even more sun on the spring tour between wine and water.

Info

Embedded by sun-hungry vines and rolling hills, the route links the most diverse landscapes in the northernmost tip of Bavaria.

Getting there: In order to join the Mainfrankentour and include one of the surrounding motorcycle areas, the following routes are recommended: From the north over the Bavarian Rhon from Fladungen over the Rother Kuppe to Bischofsheim, Sandberg, Oberthulba to Hammelburg.
From the east via Burgkunstadt to Weismain, Wallersberg, Wattendorf, Ebensfeld, Untermerzbach, Ebern to Welkendorf.
From the south via Leutershausen, Oberdachstetten, Obernzenn, Sugenheim, Oberscheinfeld, Geiselwind, Kleinbirkach.
From the west via Hanau, Schollkrippen, Wiesen, Frammersbach, Lohnhaupten, Hermanskoppe.

Worthwhile goals: On the round tour through Main Franconia you will cross many nice and rustic palaces, castles and monasteries that are worth a visit in the traditionally Catholic region.

At www.frankentourismus.de you can put together the historical sights on the entire tour. If you are on the road with your Enduro, you also have the option of driving the motocross track in Arnstein at the weekend for a fee (www.msc-arnstein.de). There is a 30-minute trial training course for beginners.

Eat and sleep: For fans of delicious fish dishes, the oldest fish farm in Germany in Grafendorf on the Franconian Saale is recommended. There will be freshly caught trout at the courtyard festival from May 29 to June 1, 2014: www.fischgut-seewiese.de
Beautiful beer gardens, such as Hallburg Castle near Nordheim, where you can eat inexpensive regional dishes such as Franconian onion meat, can be found on the entire tour, which is why the inns listed below only cover a small part of the gastronomic offers.

fact / Joachim Schahl

Duration of the trip: two days; Distance driven: 420 kilometers.

Route and region:  In the center of the route are the cities of Schweinfurt and Werneck, but their foothills are generously bypassed. The Main Franconia wine region is one of the sunniest landscapes in Germany. In general, the route leads over paved roads, which, however, are very narrow in some passages and require good machine control due to the broken pavement. Because the route often leads over very low-traffic and remote routes with few petrol stations, you should also waste a thought on the range of your motorcycle when preparing.
