Bett + Bike: cyclist-friendly hotel in the Rheingau
The best first: Hotel Im Schulhaus is located directly on the Rhine cycle path! The best conditions for an unforgettable cycling tour through the Middle Rhine UNESCO World Heritage Site - and the best start or stop in your cycling tour through Germany along the long distance bike trail.
That hit right in the heart!
At the beginning of the cycling season in 2014, there was good news for our team. The ADFC - Allgemeiner Deutscher Fahrrad-Club - had chosen our house as the outstanding bike-friendly guest operation of the state of Hesse. Bett + Bike awards this special award and quality seal of the ADFC together with the Hessen agency. For us, this special recommendation made a heart's desire come true.

If your bike doesn't like being alone at night
If your bike is very dear to you and your sports device likes spending the night with other "buddies", you've come to the right place. Two of four carports are lockable, and offer enough space for bikes and motorbikes. This offer is free for our guests since we are a bike-friendly place.
Do you fancy a spontaneous bike tour?
Our tip: just leave your car behind and explore the area on two wheels.
Whether for a day bike tour or an evening sundowner tour along the beautiful Rhine for a glass of wine to Kaub. The Rhine Cycle Path through the romantic Rhine Valley, past castles, palaces and countless vineyards, is a wonderful route. Since it has almost no incline, it is easy to master without an electric motor.
You can borrow city bikes from us in the hotel. The multi-speed bikes are always well maintained by our bike partner Radl Mahl and can be ridden with the easy-to-use gears. Safety first: We even have helmets (always freshly disinfected) in our house for you (free of charge)!
Since we only have a limited numbers of bikes available on site (in the hotel), we recommend that you make a reservation in advance. Cost: 17 € / day
Evening sundowner tour from 4:30 p.m .: € 8.50
Our rental bikes want to be moved! So - what are you waiting for?
Cycling through World Heritage
One of the loveliest cycling tours leads to the right and left of the Rhine through the UNESCO World Heritage Upper Middle Rhine Valley. Always along the Father Rhine, you cycle past castles and romantic wine villages. The starting point is at Hotel Im Schulhaus, Lorch.
There you take the ferry to Niederheimbach and start the leisurely tour, past Bacharach to St. Goar on the Middle Rhine.
From here you can take the ferry back to the other side of the Rhine and from there back to Lorch.
TIP: Buy the "World Heritage Ticket" on the ferry. For only EUR 5.50 you can cross the Rhine twice.
If you want "a little more" and would like to rent an e-bike, contact our cycling partner in Rüdesheim: Rheingau-Riesling Rad.
Here you will be advised by professional cyclists and can choose the right e-bike.
If your muscles groan to relax
If in the morning you know exactly what you will feel like in the evening after a day on your bike, you can prepare yourself. Treat yourself to a relaxation massage. We ask for your understanding that this service has to be booked in advance and paid for at the same time, if you'd prefer to use the bath rather than the massage bed.
