Das Weimarer Land - sehr, sehr schön.
Weites Land, sanfte Hügel. Alle Anstiege sind auch mit einem 8-Gang-Fahrrad zu schaffen. Nur bei 15% Steigung mussten wir schieben. Sternfahrten, die gut zu schaffen sind. Gute Beschilderung. Weimar - Kultur, Erinnerung findet man an jeder Ecke. Sehr abwechslungsreich. Nicht überlaufen, nicht touristisch. Sehr angenehm. Gutes Essen, angemessene Preise in den Restaurants. Gedenkstätte KZ Buchenwald - Ganz, ganz wichtig ein Besuch dieser Gedänkstätte auch während des Urlaubs. Auch gut mit dem Rad zu erreichen. Leichter Anstieg. Ausflug nach Erfurt in den Zoo - Ein sehr großes Gelände mit einer guten Auswahl verschiedener Tiere. Ein entspanntes Erlebnis und "Wandern" . Ausflug zum Stausee Hohenfelden. Ein attraktives Ziel. Rückfahrt herrlich. Man kann die Räder laufen lassen. Fazit - Es hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Wir saßen den ganzen auf dem Rad und haben das Weirmarer Land mit seiner Kultur, den weiten Feldern und "sanften" Hügeln genossen.

Liebe Frau Reckling! Vielen Dank für Ihre nette Bewertung! Es freut uns sehr, dass Sie großteils mit unserer Reise zufrieden waren! Wir versuchen stets unsere Reisen zu verbessern und haben immer ein offenes Ohr für Kritikpunkte! Manchmal ist es jedoch nicht möglich unsere Routen immer auf Radwegen zu planen, da es manchmal einfach keine gibt! Wir hoffen jedoch, dass Sie trotzdem eine angenehme Reise verbracht haben!
