On Wednesday, my whole body was hurting after the steep climb at the end of the previous day. That's why I decided against cycling the Limes (=Roman border wall) route which includes a lot up and downhills. And opted for the famous Kocher-Jagst cycling route and follow the Jagst river towards the Neckar, the reverse direction from the "original Kocher-Jagst-Route".
That way, I didn't have any work to navigate because there are signs "everywhere" and also the route is relatively even....jippieh...this also meant I had a lot of time to enjoy the view and take lots of pictures :-)
I arrived Bad Friedrichshall around 1:30 PM, checked into a hotel with view on the Neckar and went after a quick shower to Bad Wimpfen which takes four (!!) minutes by tram.
Bad Wimpfen is an old emperors' residence and has a beautiful small city center which is still pretty much intact and/or very well reconstructed. But before you can enjoy the sights - and the view - you have to climb A LOT of stairs because the town is sitting on a pretty high hill.
After wandering about and visiting the "old" (most of the chapel was destroyed, used as a farm house and was only later reconstructed) emperors' chapel, I had a delicious brinner or dunch (=dinner & lunch) at a little place called "Little food". They only have fresh and regional products on their menu and I can absolutely recommend a visit there - and no, I don't get paid for this commercial ;-)
After some more roaming through the little alleys, I walked down to the tram station but the next tram was only due in about half an hour, so I decided to walk back to Bad Friedrichshall. That's where I found this old huge parking lot which was turned into a park, right next to the Neckar: Brillant :-)
And that was more or less the end of day 2 of my "many rivers" trip.
