Day-by-Day Cycling Holiday Itinerary


Day 1: Individual arrival to Hann. Münden

Your personal tour information and handing over of the bicycles (if booked) is in the evening. A first tour by bicycle you can undertake to the old town of Hann. Münden.

We recommend a little stroll through the medieval centre of Hann. Münden with the historic half timbered houses of the Weser Renaissance is very interesting. You will love the splendid old houses.

Day 2: Hann. Münden – Bad Karlshafen/Beverungen approx. 46/55 km

Start of the bicycle tour on the Weser Rock, exactly where Werra and Fulda embrace each other. You cycle via Reinhardshagen and past the ancient Benedictine monastery Bursfelde to the baroque Huguenot’s town Bad Karlshafen.

The centre of Bad Karlshafen with its lovely reconstructed baroque houses presents an interesting diversion to the otherwise usual half‐timbered houses.

Day 3: Bad Karlshafen/Beverungen – Holzminden/Bodenwerder approx. 37/55 km

A number of highlights can be encountered along the route: the town Fürstenberg with a renowned porcelain manufacture, the old hanseatic town Höxter with more than 160 mostly half timbered buildings under monuments‐protection.

The little town Beverungen retained a lot of its historical face. Holzminden is well known for the production of aroma‐essences and perfume‐oils.

Day 4: Holzminden/Bodenwerder – Hameln/Rinteln approx. 26-55 km

Many an idyllic village on the road invites you to stay. The little town Bodenwerder got certain fame for being the home of the so called “Lying Baron” of Münchhausen.

The famous town of the “Rat Catcher from Hameln” has an intact old town with marvellous half‐timbered houses and buildings in the typical style of the Weser Renaissance, dating back to the 16th and 17th century.

Day 5: Hameln/Rinteln – Minden approx. 41/69 km

Near Porta Westfalica the river breaks through the Wiehen‐ and Weser mountain ranges and reaches the Northern German lowlands. The small town Rinteln, originating from the 13th century still has many buildings from the Weser Renaissance.

Bad Oeynhausen has the world biggest carbonic acid thermal spring. Minden once was a flourishing trading centre but was destroyed in great parts during World War II. It was reconstructed in an exemplary way.

Day 6: Minden – Nienburg approx. 63 km

After the days spent in the low mountain ranges today the idyllic, protected river meadows of the middle Weser dominate.

You enjoy a far view over the flat countryside with meadows, black and white cows, a farm here and there and numerous wind mills. Characteristic for Nienburg is the strong fortification and the nice old town still is worth a visit.

Day 7: Nienburg – Verden approx. 57 km

Today you discover the historic landscape of the middle Weser. The county Hoja are crossed on today’s tour. Native villages and wide‐spread farms are situated on the Weser‐marsh land.

After the day in nature the city of riders, Verden, forms the great end of the day. The town is dominated by the dome. The reputation as important rider and horse centre, adds to the significance of the town.

Day 8: Verden – Bremen approx. 53 km, departure

Away from the traffic and through park‐like areas you reach the centre of Bremen. The city has the second largest North‐Sea port and a great importance for the sea trade.

A sight-seeing tour of the old town, as well as the Schnoorviertel, the monument of Roland and the monument of the “Bremer Musicians” are absolutely a must. Individual departure.
