Valley Circuit Tour

The Valley Circuit Tour connects the Enz and Nagold Valley Cycle Routes. In just one to four days you can complete a round tour without steep climbs, which will allow you to enjoy an idyllic ride through nature and enchanted valleys, accompanied by the soothing sound of water.

The Shorter Valley Circuit Tour connects the Nagold Valley with the Enz Valley, while the Longer Valley Circuit Tour takes you over the Nagold Dam to the Große Enz river.

Awaiting you here is a wonderful multi-day round tour through two Black Forest valleys with beautiful towns and numerous outdoor swimming pools.

The Longer Valley Circuit Tour connects the Nagold Valley Cycle Route (to the source) with the Enz Valley Cycle Route, resulting in a round tour of approx. 145 kilometres.

The ascent to the highest point of the tour, at around 870 m, is easier if you are coming from the Nagold Valley, which is why the route leads from the Nagold to the Enz and is only signposted in this direction. The route covers mainly asphalted cycle paths, but partly also paved forest paths. The Enztal and Nagold Valley Cycle Routes have their own signs, which are occasionally supplemented by signs for the Valley Circuit Tour (green arrow with the words Enz Nagold and the name Tälerrunde, which means Valley Circuit Tour). Here is an overview of the distances on the route with two different options:

Pforzheim – Calw approx. 27 km

Calw – Nagold approx. 26 km

Nagold – Berneck approx. 12 km

Longer Valley Circuit Tour (Große Tälerrunde)

From the Berneck turn-off – Nagold Dam approx. 13 km

Nagold Dam – Gompelscheuer (directly) approx. 18 km

Nagold Dam – Besenfeld – Gompelscheuer approx. 23 km

Gompelscheuer – Calmbach approx. 23 km

Shorter Valley Circuit Tour (Kleine Tälerrunde)

From the Berneck turn-off – Calmbach approx. 29 km

There are also several ways of shortening the tour:

By taking the S 6 AVG S-Bahn (commuter train) via Bad Wildbad – Höfen – Neuenbürg – Pforzheim

By taking line 774 of the Kulturbahn (Cultural Railway) from Pforzheim via Calw – Nagold – Horb

By taking the bus (limited space for bicycle transportation, cyclists with bikes are not guaranteed a space on the bus):

line 7780: Freudenstadt – Besenfeld – Wildbad

line 420: (Wildbad) – Enzklösterle – Simmersfeld – Altensteig

Or, especially on weekends, by taking the Velobus from Pforzheim over the Enz Valley to Urnagold. We will be happy to help you plan your cycling route and find the right connections for you!
