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.

Corvey was one of the most important Carolingian monasteries and possesed one of the most valuable libraries in the country. A numerous bishops arised from that abbey. Corvey played a decisive role in the first missionary experiments in Scandinavia. Ansgar, the "Apostle of the North," was brought up here.

This means 211 km free traveling for the navigation on the canal and the Weser. Connections via two lockways make a switch between the waterways at this intersection possible.

Tour

Get here early to see the 700+ half-timbered houses in the city, as well as the renaissance-era city hall. There is parking close to the hotel, and bicycles are also available for rent.

The former Benedictine monastery at Bursfelde, and Oberweser with its open-air milling museum await you.

Today your ride takes you along the border of Solling. You'll pass the Fürstenberg castle, where porcelain is made, before you reach the monastery at Corvey. After that, continue on to the next highlight of the tour: the palace at Bevern, one of the most impressive buildings of the renaissance at the Weser.

After leaving Bodenwerder, you'll be greeted by the picturesque Hämelschenburg, before being captivated by the Pied Piper of Hameln's song in Hameln.

You'll see Bad Oeynhausen, famous for its "Jordansprudel," the largest carbonated hot spring in the world. But things will get a bit tight (literally!) in the valley at Porta Westfalica, the gateway to Westphalia, before you reach Minden.

Here the landscape changes as you enter the Northern German lowlands. Try following the bear tracks through Nienburg's old city, for a unique way to see the historical sights.

Your ride takes you through little villages filled with red brick houses before you arrive in Verden, famous for its horses. There are many photo opportunities among the broad meadows, windmills, and occasional farmhouses.

Welcome to Bremen! Perhaps you heard the famous town musicians on your ride in, or maybe it was your imagination. Either way, don't forget to check out the statue of them in front of the city hall.

Under the shelter of the dyke you cycle towards north. Be impressed by lush green meadows, black and white specked cows and sheep at the dyke. A fresh wind, the smell of salt in the air, much water and seagulls indicate that you are at the coast. Today you may go on a trip through the beautiful region Butjadinger Land with an excursion by ship to Wilhelmhaven. No matter how you decide the fresh sea air is always the same! In Bremerhaven the "Schaufenster Fischereihafen" is worth visiting. It is a centre for culture and communication with small shops, handcraft, restaurants and cooking studio for fish.

It is very clear – you are at the coast and in a seaport. For the first 9 kilometres you cycle through the huge harbour with large docks and the flair of freeport. Past old lighthouses you roll along the coast of the North Saxon wadden sea. Be enchanted by small fishing villages, quiet camping sites and wonderful white beaches with colourful canopied beach-chairs. In Cuxhaven you may gain insight into this cultivated landscape at the information centre Nationalpark Wattenmeer (national preserve wadden sea). Also the harbour bulwark "Alte Liebe" and the lighthouse "Dicke Berta" are worth seeing.

Today your tour ends after breakfast. We recommend to book extra nights in Cuxhaven or to go on a trip to the island of Helgoland. You can leave your rented bike at the hotel. Trains leave back to Hann. Münden or you can book our back transfer (daily at 1.30 p.m.).

Condition of cycle paths

The Weser bike trail is one of the best cycle routes in Europe. In surveys conducted by the Allgemeiner Deutscher fahrrad-Club (ADfC - General German Cycling Club), the Weser cycle path has become the most popular cycling route in Germany!

Most of the time the bike trail runs parallel to the Weser waterway: especially between Hann.Münden and Rinteln it makes the special charm of this bicycle route.

Large sections of the Weser bike track are well developed, paved bike trails, farm roads, or at least roads with separate routing paths. Occasionally short sections lead over country roads with less traffic. There are hardly any sections where you have to drive on unsurfaced roads.

Often there are bike trails along both the banks of the Weser River. Especially between Hann.Münden and Werder you can pick the site and take the ferry to switch banks. However, the official Weserradweg bike route leads only on one side of the river.

Available rental bikes

If you choose to rent a velocipede-rental bike for the tour, we bring it to your first hotel and pick it up at your destination. You can choose between woman’s and men's bicycles either with 7-speed gear shift and coaster brake or 27-speed gear shift and freewheel or electric bikes. All ladies' bikes have a low opening that makes mounting and dismounting much easier. The bikes are suitable for all ladies from 150 cm in height and for all gentlemen from 165 cm in height. You simply specify your wishes at time of booking.
