tour description

Free as the wind

Feel free – not just on the bike but already during the planning of the route you create the journey yourself. We offer cyclist individuality by our cycling stages to 'create by yourself'. The Weser bike trail will definitely not leave anything to be desired: family holiday with short stages or training stages for racers, sights for cultural interested cyclists or the spontaneous fresh air activity for Sunday driver.

From the map and the distance table, choose your desired overnight accommodation. Use our tour planner for your exact planning. Here, you can flexibly put together a trip from 5 to 12 days. In doing so, you determine all the details of your trip such as overnight accommodation, daily stages and duration of the trip – please do not forget to include an arrival day and departure day. Finally, send us your completed travel plan and we will send you an offer that has been tailored to your wishes. With our all-carefree service, we ensure a relaxed and smooth functioning of your bike tour.

tour highlights

Hann.Münden

Hann. Münden is rich in restored half-timbered houses (more than 700 in the historical town center) with nice medieval churches (St. Blasius, St. Aegidia) and buildings of the so-called Weserrenaissance. Worth mentioning in particular are the Welfenschloss and the historic town hall.

City wall:

Some parts of the medieval city wall including the defense towers are preserved. The wall was already built with the city's foundation in the 12th century.

St. Blasius:

The Blasius church is a three-nave Gothic hall church in the center of the old town. The construction began at the end of the 13th century, built on the foundation walls of a Roman basilica.

Old Werra-bridge:

The stone bridge across the Werra connects the town center with the suburban flower. It was built before 1329 and is one of the oldest stone bridges in Lower Saxony.

Town hall:

Downtown you find the town hall, whose core is a gothic hall dating from the 14th century. In the years 1603 to 1618, the building was reconstructed by the Lemgo architect Georg Crossmann and received its still preserved decorated façade.

Welfenschloss:

The first Münden castle was completed in 1501 by Herzogich I (Calenberg-Göttingen) as a gothic building. It was a residence castle with administrative seat.

Tillyschanze:

As a memory of the Siege of Münden by general Tilly in 1626 a watch out tower was built in the Reinhardswald above the town.

Weser-song construction:

On a hill high above Hann. Münden and Weserstein, the Weser-song construction is located on the right side of the river Weser. Reminiscent of the poet of the Weser song (Franz von Dingelstedt) and the composer of the song (Gustav Pressel). The Weser-song construction offers a wide view over the city.
