We recommend bringing enough time to visit the city hall from the Weser Renaissance and the more than 700 half-timbered houses of the town. Parking facilities are close to the hotel and rental bikes await you at the hotel.
Onto the bicycles! The former Benedictine monastery Bursfelde is the first sight waiting to be visited. Next on your list are the worthwhile open-air museum with its numerous mills and Bad Karlshafen.
The periphery of the Solling, Northern Germany’s second largest continuous wood-covered surface, will accompany you today! Fürstenberg castle, known world-wide for its chinaware manufacture, lies on your way to Corvey castle. After a short visit, you will follow your route to Bevern castle, one of the Weser Renaissance’s most impressive buildings. Allow yourself to take a break in Bodenwerder, home of the famous Baron Münchhausen, before the medieval atmosphere captures you in the Pied Piper’s town Hamelin.
Leaving beautiful Hameln means discovering other new places. Visit the town of Rinteln, it also has a lot to offer: The magnificent Old-Town from the Weser Renaissance, the ancient harbor and the historical steam railway. Bad Oeynhausen is North-Rhine Westphalia’s only national spa. It attracts the numerous visitors with its 36°C warm "Jordansprudel" – the world’s greatest sparkling thermal spring shooting up to 42 metres of height from 720 metres below the earth by itself. The valley gets a little narrower nearby Porta Westfalica, where the Weser and the numerous cyclists have to push their way through the Wiehen- and Weser mountains. A number of interesting museums (coffee museum, Prussian museum, button museum, doll museum) and nice cafes wait in Minden, so that the last few kilometres will be accomplished easily.
From today on, the landscape will be different: You enter the North German lowlands. Discover the Old-town of Nienburg on a special way: All you have to do is follow the bear-track leading you to the historical sights! Afterwards, small villages with brick-colored houses seam your way to Hoya.
You will reach today’s first stop in short time: the horsemen’s town Verden. A wide panorama, meadows like green carpets, wind mills and farms scattered here and there invite to take many pictures along the route. Past a stork haven you get closer and closer to Bremen. If you are lucky, the Town Musicians of Bremen already greet you from the distance, but you should in every case make a stop in front of the bronze statue at the city hall.
Your rental bikes can be left at the hotel. It is possible to travel back to Hann. Münden by train or to book our back transfer (daily at 3 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.
Transfer back to the starting point of the journey
Daily at 3pm there is the possibility to transfer back to Hann.Münden with a small bus (with bike trailer).

The bus takes you back to your first hotel, thus ensuring a perfect return service without transfer and the hassle of hauling luggage. If you bring your own bicycles, an additional will be charged.
A possible resulting tourist tax is not part of the travel price and therefor it is payable locally at the hotel.
