Bicycling, invented in Mannheim 200 years ago, is as natural to German families as eating apple strudel and reading Grimms’ Fairy Tales, making a Tour de SouthWest Germany a fun, eco-friendly adventure with teens. Mannheim, an easy 45-minute train ride from Frankfurt, is the ideal city to base a family bicycle trip exploring the neighboring bike-friendly, train-accessible cities of Schwetzingen, Heidelberg and Karlsruhe. The region’s flat terrain promises picturesque bike rides through storybook villages, along riverbanks, past asparagus fields and around Baroque Period palaces’ gardens.
