cycle routesGermany is a land of cycling. It’s no surprise, then, that you can discover many of Germany’s highlights on more than 70,000km of cycle paths and 200 long-distance cycle routes.

 
In March 2016, at the International Tourism Fair in Berlin, the German Cyclists’ Federation (ADFC) once again gave their seal of approval to a number of long-distance cycle routes.

 
First-class cycle routes
Whether a beginner or a seasoned cycling pro, you will be travelling safely on the quality-certified long-distance cycle routes in Germany. When it comes to categorising cycle routes, factors such as signage, surface, traffic and services along the way all play an important role. Three to five stars indicate the standard on offer to cyclists on the route.
The biggest winners this year were the long-distance cycle routes Charming Tauber valley – the classic and the Allgäu Cycle Loop, which passes Neuschwanstein Castle. They were both awarded the highest accolade of five stars.

 
When cycling it is easy to immerse yourself in the scenery and distinctive regional features. Themed cycle routes such as the Berlin Wall Trail, the Monks’ Trail and the Cabbage and Turnips Cycle Route reflect the character of the region through which they pass and bring culture and history to life.

 
Exploring Germany’s natural landscapes by bike is a particular treat.

 
Several cycle routes follow German rivers, with those along the Elbe, Weser, Ruhr and Danube proving especially popular. Panoramic cycle routes across mountains and through valleys offer views of the surrounding area that will take your breath away.

 
No matter whether you’re an adrenaline-seeking mountain biker or prefer a leisurely ride on an e-bike, there is something for everyone in Germany. And don’t forget to take time out from cycling to enjoy some German gemütlichkeit along the way.

 
After a long day’s cycling you’ll want to relax in the evening. Finding somewhere suitable to stay overnight won’t be a problem, as the bike-friendly accommodation along the routes – the ‘Bed & Bike’ (Bett+Bike) establishments – specifically cater for the needs of cyclists.
Be it tough climbs or flat paths, historical trails or unspoilt nature – in Germany every type of route is on offer. Get set for your next cycling holiday!
