Mountain Biking Philosophenweg

  Add a review
#71 of 150 mountain bike trails in Germany
#6,150 in the world

The Philosophenweg (Philosopher's way or walk) is a great way to see downtown
Heidelberg from above, when you reach the top of the hill there are a few places to
sit and enjoy the view, have a picnic, etc. The ground is mostly paved/gravel. Once
you make it far enough east, the ground turns to gravel and dirt, this is where a
large network of trails begin.
