Ems-Route

Between romance and tradition.

River Ems runs along 371 kilometres from its origin in Nordrhein-Westfalen to the North Sea. It flows through romantic moorlands and floodplains, past fisher villages and cities with century-old architecture. Follow the diversified river upstream from Münster to Emden, from the east Frisian sea harbour to the lively bike city in the Münsterland region. This tour will not be challenging, it will be just beautiful. Cyclists mostly have tailwind, which cares for an additional push.
