25 AUGUST 2018

The Rheingau region on 25 August will be the theatre of the first Eroica Germany. ​The views on the Rhine river await participants as they ride on the streets along the famous vineyards, enjoying the charm of picturesque villages and beautiful castles.

You are not a member of the Eroica Cycle Club but would you like to take part in Eroica Germany?
We have a limited number of registrations also for non-CCE members.


The starting point of Eroica Germania will be at the Baron-Knyphausen winery in the town of Eltville.
The Rheingau in general and the Draiser Hof are particularly well connected and easy to reach.
The largest German airport Frankfurt / M. is 50 km away, from there you can easily reach Eltville by train via Wiesbaden. The Rheingau offers a number of small campsites. Wiesbaden, the nearest big city, is only 20km away.
