I would like to hire 4 bicycles (with panniers) to ride with my family for 4 or 5 days around the Romantic Road region. I have found commercial companies doing cycling trips, but they all seem very expensive. I would like tohore the bikes myself and use cheaper accomodation. I believe that bicycle hore is available from train stations, but I imagine that they would not be suitable for long distances, or have panniers. Does anyone know of a bike rental shop that could provide them?
RE: Bicycle hire
find here a list from all the shops offering bikes to rent. (fahrrad reparaturen Fahrradverleih) http://www.wuerzburg.de/storage/med/touri/1238_Radfahrplan.pdf?fCMS=c9bdeba02846a44857ed16685499eed4
I dont know if any of the companys is renting bicycle with panniers. usualy this companys are more used to rent one bicycle for a singele day.
Maybee the german bicycle club can help you. Here is the www. adress of the würzburg chapter: www.wuerzburg.de/adfc
RE: RE: Bicycle hire
the companies marked with a * let bicycles.
a company in Tauberbischofsheim
Best will be probably to contact the tourist offices in Würzburg, Wertheim or Tauberbischofsheim. They know normally exact what the local rental companies can offer.

Travel Tips for Würzburg
Have time to explore. This...
Have time to explore. This town is beautiful. There is alot to see and do. Take a map, even a tour. Tours are nice for the history facts, but be sure to do your own things while here. If shoppings your thing, they have a nice shopping area. H&M anyone? Also McDondalds and other american food is easy access if your not in the mood for German. I recomend asking a local for the best place in town to eat. If your somewhere new, experiance it. My school had a guided tour for us, than time for us to explore on our own. My fondest memory is running around the city with my friend from Brazil. Our German was terrible, and she spoke no english, and I speak zero portugese. So we had fun! We lost our map, and got lost but found so many cool places that rest of the group didnt. We met so many new people, and saw so many things. I just miss it all!
Round the back of the Dom..........
...........there's a little courtyard or square, with some interesting sculptures .
You'd have to go there to get to the Museum am Dom, but I bet most people don't bother to look around.
In the evening, it's a quiet and pretty place to sit and ponder awhile.
Rather like the man in the photo. Bound hand and foot (by earthly restraints?) but gazing up to Heaven past the spires of the Dom.
Facing the Dom, take the alleyway to your left.

Sommerach, pop.1300. It´s the 'prettiest village of Franconia' and I can only support this view. It is pretty indeed. Again, you´ll find old but well-kept buildings as well as a town wall from the 15/16th century. And wine! Their wine festival is on the second weekend in July, and you´ve got to try 'Sommeracher Katzenkopf', 'Engelsberg' and 'Rosenberg'. Ssssssslurptuous!

See the big river 'Main' with the 'alte Mainbrücke' - the old stone bridge, lined by many sculptures.
Also see the Festung and the Residenz, the Marktplatz, Altes Rathaus.
There is a lot of nice sights and a friendly atmosphere in this town.
I have friends there and visit them a couple times a year and we always have a good time in Würzburg, which also has quite a lot of college students.
A visit and stroll at...
A visit and stroll at Marienberg Castle.
The castle dates back to 1201 and the grounds have been changed numerous times over the centurites due to wars, fire, general renovation and additions. The view down to the city is beautiful and the view up to the lighted castle at night is even better.
