A BIKE TOUR IN GERMANY – VISIT THIS EUROPEAN GEM

A country as diverse as life itself, shaped by history, celebrated for its beauty and appreciated for its achievements – of course we’re talking about Germany! It’s a country we’re all familiar with, but few have gotten to know the Federal Republic from the seat of their bicycle! The stormy North Sea with its romantic beaches, the culture in the new Federal States and the history in the old, the sparkling lakes in beautiful southern Germany and many more highlights await you along the perfectly developed cycle paths!

The most popular cycling destinations in Germany

Beach at Lake Isar

Germany has something to suit every taste

Cycle paths of all levels of difficulty, vast landscapes and majestic mountains, cycle tours with stage lengths to suit beginners to professional cyclists, idyllic cycle tours through secluded areas or rallies in buzzing cities…Germany leaves nothing to be desired. The cyclist who chooses Germany can expect the best cycle paths, great selected hotels, beautiful landscapes and interesting sights. Whether northern, central or southern Germany, you will pat yourself on the back for making the right decision. Hardly any other country is as well set up for cycling tourism as beautiful Germany. It would be a shame not to take a look for yourself, right?

South Germany

Cyclists at Lake Tegernsee

Beautiful landscapes, great cycle paths, the best food, friendly people, tasty beer, sparkling lakes…tours in the south of Germany are a must for every cycling enthusiast. For example, we have the stunning Bavaria with the majestic Chiemsee, the southern Palatinate with its picturesque vineyards, the multicultural Lake Constance cycle path in the border triangle and of course the Main Cycle Path or the Danube Cycle Path. Every single region has its charms and delights guests and cycling enthusiasts from all over the world. Cosiness meets perfect cycling conditions, comfortable accommodation and an excellent quality of life.

Bavaria

The Free State of Bavaria needs no introduction. Everyone knows the Alpine region and feels right at home. It’s no wonder that many of our most popular cycle tours are located in Bavaria. Of course, Munich and the surrounding area play an important role. Discover the capital of Bavaria, on the Munich Lakes Tour, for example. Another highlight in Bavaria is the Romantic Road and Bavarian Lakes. On the Chiemgau Highlights Tour you get to know the beautiful Chiemgau. Altmühltal and the German Danube are also beautiful for cycling, and you can get to know them on the tours Rothenburg – Regensburg and Donaueschingen – Donauwörth. You are spoiled for choice.

Castle Johannisburg in Aschaffenburg

Main Cycle Path

The little brother of the Rhine – we’re of course talking about the Main. It plays a major role at Eurobike and is by no means in its big brother’s shadow. The Main Vintner's Tour is just one example of the wonderful cycle tours along the Main.

 

Central Germany

Castle Runkel at river Lahn

The beautiful rivers, which are so wonderful to cycle along, are especially attractive for cyclists in central Germany. This idyllic image is accompanied by enchanting castles and palaces, which are very common in this area, as well as picturesque vineyards. A bike holiday in central Germany promises a lot of rest and valuable time to yourself. Discover the Mosel Cycle Path on the bike tour Metz – Koblenz, or other great cycling trips on the Elbe, such as Dresden – Magdeburg, or the Rhine, from Mainz to Cologne. Try the cycle paths in the Thuringian Basin or cycle through the cyclist’s paradise of Münsterland. But of course, cycling along the Lahn, such as from Marburg to Koblenz is also a lot of fun! You see, there’s lots to offer. What are you waiting for?

Useful information about your cycling holiday in Germany

The climate in Germany

Like the cuisine, the climate in Germany varies! Overall, it is incredibly difficult to make a forecast of the weather across the country. Various climatic zones meet here. From the mountainous climate of the Alps, to the continental climate on the south-east of Germany and on to the maritime north you will find all weather. What does that tell us? Everything is possible and the weather cannot be changed. In general, we only order the best weather for our guests. But packing sensible clothing can’t hurt…

Bavarian veal sausage

German cuisine

You can’t lump German food together. It is as diverse as Germany herself. The hearty Bavarian cuisine is more similar to that in Austria. The image of the grandmother, standing in front of steaming pots conjuring up treats such as delicious roast pork with dumplings, meatballs and ‘Sauerbraten’ is a reality in south Germany.

‘Thüringer Klöße’ (dumplings), ‘Köningsberger Klopse’ (meatballs with white sauce) or ‘Kohlrouladen’ (cabbage rolls) are just a few examples of central German cuisine. Here too it quickly becomes clear, German cuisine relies on rich foods. Here you cook with that extra dollop of love (butter) on top! Yum!

But what is this pink goop supposed to be? Labskaus? For all non-Germans, Labskaus is a north German meal created by sailors. It consists of potatoes mashed with beetroot (hence the pink colour) and canned meat served with pickled herring ‘rollmops’, pickles and fried egg. And what else is being served in northern Germany? Fish is of course high on the list, as is potato salad, kale, turnip and beetroot. Here they love hot steaming stews and thick soups with coarse sausage. Just as the weather suggests!

Did you know…

  • …that the melody of the German national anthem came from the Austrian imperial anthem? Austrian composer Franz Joseph Haydn wrote the melody in 1797.
  • …that the most popular attraction in Germany is the Cologne Cathedral?
  • …that, measured by the number of club members, fitness is the favourite sport in Germany – not football!
  • …that Berlin Zoo is the largest in the world?
  • …that Germany is one of the few countries where a jailbreak is not illegal, but also not without consequences?
  • …that there is a place in Bavaria called ‘Cat’s brain’ – Katzenhirn?
  • …that 10 tonnes of bird droppings fall from the sky every day in Berlin?
  • …that more beer is brewed in Dortmund than in Munich?
  • …that the paint for the White House is made in Bavaria?
