Turn-by-turn directions

 

 

 

 

At the train station in Erndtebrück you can directly enter the Eder cycle path. The cycle path is signposted throughout with a logo inset in the signposts. Between Reddighausen and Dodenau you come through a 350 meter long tunnel, but only in the warm season. In cold temperatures, the tunnel is closed because the pug bats overwinter. There is an alternative route outside the tunnel along the Eder. On this path you will pass the Dodenau Wildlife Park. Continue towards Frankenberg where you will pass a bird watching pulpit behind Rennertehausen. In Frankenberg you will first cycle through an industrial area but then you will arrive at the new Eder Park, which invites you to linger. Here near the water park you will find a bicycle parking facility and a hose machine from spring. Then you continue towards Edersee, on this path there is a hairpin in the forest between Ederbringhausen and Schmittlotheim, that is a short sliding distance, here you have to be careful that you do that Shield not overlooked. It then goes a little downhill through a small stream. You continue to Herzhausen, where you will also find the National Park train station (with battery charging station). From here, at the western point of the Edersee, you cycle on the south side of the lake to Asel-Süd and then on to the edge of the Kellerwald National Park -Edersee along. The Edersee is worth a longer stop. After you have passed the Edersee region, you continue to the Fritzlar and Felsberg specialist workshops to the mouth of the Eder in the Fulda. From there it is not far to the end point at the beautiful railway viaduct in Baunatal-Guntershausen, where you can either continue by train or cycle on the R1
