The State-Wide Bike Route Planner for Baden-Württemberg is a free interactive offer and is available to all bike riders. The further development of the system takes place in close collaboration with the Town and State districts, with frequent up-dates.
In addition to planning the bike route by inputting the address, the system can also make numerous recommendations, such as the 17 state touristic distance bike tours.
The calculated routes and tour recommendations can be downloaded to a GPS navigation device or printed like a map so they can be used during the journey. There is also a mobile version of the Radtourplaner for Smartphones available.
The collaboration of the Rhein-Neckar-Kreis district administration, the Landesamt für Geoinformation und Landentwicklung Baden-Württemberg (LGL) has updated and published the state district map of the Rhein-Neckar-Kreis on a scale of 1:50 000.
The most populated area of the State of Baden-Württemberg gets its name from the formative rivers, the Rhein and Neckar, and reaches into areas of the Upper Rhine Plain, to the west of Kraichgau and south of the Odenwald The district area was made accessible through a well-built cycle path network. The core of the present state district map is, therefore, composed of all together nine bike paths and loops that are exhaustively explained and printed with contact addresses for Information about the points of interest and recreational facilities But even the regional bike paths, such as the world heritage paths as well as the long distance bike paths Rheintal-Weg, Odenwald-Madonnen-Weg und Veloroute Rhein are illustrated in the map. It contains important information about the quality of the bike paths and contour lines as well as especially placed gradient arrows. The pictograms show where there are train stations, youth hostels, camping spots and shelters, as well as places to rent and/or repair bicycles.
The Map ist printed with a UTM-coordinate grid so that a GPS device can be used to navigate more easily. This way, the results of the state-wide bike route planner (finding the right address; quickly calculating the bike route; giving the user additional information like tourist sites and connections to public transport) can be put into the map. As an extra aid, a public transportation map from the S-Bahn Rhein-Neckar is included, to facilitate planning trips to places surrounding the main cities of Mannheim, Heidelberg, Ludwigshafen and Kaiserlautern.
