Handcars Adventure Tours: The handcar tour is the absolute tourist attraction in our region. Therefore many Saturdays, Sundays and holidays for 2005 are already fully booked. Go on a terrific tour on the 40 km long tracks, running without electricity, but with a high fun factor. The hand car is steered by two persons pedaling, just as on a bicycle, and runs straight on four wheels on the tracks. Two additional persons can also come along. Starting from 2005, there is more fun for groups up to 14 persons on a large hand-levered handcar, with 4 persons pedaling forwards, up to 10 additional persons can travel along. The RegioBus track lying parallel to the tracks can be used for the return journey. On weekdays there are buses every hour and on weekends there are buses every two hours. The laps are 20 or 40 kilometers long, halts are found every two kilometers. Registration imperative. We will help you with it.
