TOUR DE SCHLOSS
“No hour of life is lost that is spent in the saddle.”
~ Winston Churchill
ALBERT’S RADLERS - TOUR DE SCHLOSS
Inspired by the classic cycling routes of continental Europe, your palace has created Tour de Schloss, an exclusive cycling route designed for all ages and abilities. With a scenic, urban and fun route, the Tour de Manchester starts and finishes in central Manchester covering an entry level distance of 22km.
A delightful weekend activity for the whole family to enjoy, the Tour de Schloss provides an illustrious cycling route in the great outdoors, perfect for those leisurely weekend rides.
LE GRAND DEPART - SUNDAY 8TH JULY FROM 9AM
The Bier Palace will stage it’s very own Le Grand Depart on Sunday 8th July, seeing cycling enthusiasts, adventure seekers, comrades and families alike invited to ride the 22km Tour de Schloss route around the city.
THE ROYAL RIDE OUT
On Sunday 8th July, participants from all walks of life are invited to cycle the Tour de Schloss route, departing from the palace at 9am. Remaining true to classic cycling culture, sausage sandwiches & espressos will be handed out before riders depart, plus a free bike servicing pop-up in the Study area.
Upon your return, reward yourself with a refreshing radler on das haus (shakes and kronuts for kids). Your Schloss will also be transformed into a cycling hub with an exclusive cycling Q+A session and outdoor railings for parking bikes, allowing riders to enjoy a leisurely post-ride afternoon feasting. Expect succulent Sunday roasts to be dished out throughout the day whilst you'll be treated to the finest entertainment.
A SUMMER OF BIER & CYCLING CULTURE
The term Radler was made famous by German cyclists who insisted on still drink beer during cycling competitions. Fruit juice was added to bier to create a lower ABV, allowing cyclists to keep on quaffing them, even during the Olympics!
Albert’s Schloss will be serving the refreshing Paulaner’s Radlers throughout the summer season in three fresh flavours; lemon, lime and pink grapefruit.

“It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus, you remember them as they actually are…
~ Ernest Hemingway
