Weser Cycle Path

Half-timbered houses, lying baron and rat catcher.

The river Weser is one of the most important German rivers. Starting point of this tour is the idyllic half timbered town Hann. Münden – the place where rivers Werra and Fulda are forming the Weser. Already here in the small town you encounter the impressive Weser Renaissance with carefully reconstructed half timbered houses. From here you follow the meandering river through the "Weserbergland" (Weser mountains), having many hidden treasures. You travel trough medieval half timbered towns as Höxter, Rinteln or Hameln. Visit the "Lying Baron Münchhausen" in Bodenwerder or see the original site of the tale of the "Rat Catcher from Hameln". Nienburg attracts with its old city, Verden with its dome and Bremen with its Schnoor district. All together a scenic and cultural very interesting journey which is due to the flat tour course easy to cycle.

Itinerary

Your personal tour information and handing over of the bicycles (if booked) is in the late afternoon. A first tour by bicycle you can undertake to the old town of Hann. Münden. We recommend a little stroll through the medieval centre of Hann. Münden with the historic half timbered houses of the Weser Renaissance is very interesting. You will love the splendid old houses.

Start of the bicycle tour on the Weser Rock, exactly where Werra and Fulda embrace each other. You cycle via Hemeln and past the ancient Benedictine monastery Bursfelde to the baroque Huguenot's town Bad Karlshafen. The centre of Bad Karlshafen with its lovely reconstructed baroque houses presents an interesting diversion to the otherwise usual half-timbered houses.

A number of highlights can be encountered along the route: the town Fürstenberg with a renowned porcelain manufacture, the old hanseatic town Höxter with more than 160 mostly half timbered buildings under monuments-protection. The little town Beverungen retained a lot of its historical face. Holzminden is well known for the production of aroma-essences and perfume-oils.

Many an idyllic village on the road invites you to stay. The little town Bodenwerder got certain fame for being the home of the so called "Lying Baron" of Münchhausen. The famous town of the "Rat Catcher from Hameln" has an intact old town with marvellous half-timbered houses and buildings in the typical style of the Weser Renaissance, dating back to the 16th and 17th century.

Near Porta Westfalica the river breaks through the Wiehen- and Weser mountain ranges and reaches the Northern German lowlands. The small town Rinteln, originating from the 13th century still has many buildings from the Weser Renaissance. Bad Oeynhausen has the world biggest carbonic acid thermal spring. Minden once was a flourishing trading centre but was destroyed in great parts during World War II. It was reconstructed in an exemplary way.

After the days spent in the low mountain ranges today the idyllic, protected river meadows of the middle Weser dominate. You enjoy a far view over the flat countryside with meadows, black and white cows, a farm here and there and numerous wind mills. Characteristic for Nienburg is the strong fortification and the nice old town still is worth a visit.

Today you discover the historic landscape of the middle Weser. The county Hoja are crossed on today's tour. Native villages and wide-spread farms are situated on the Weser-marsh land. After the day in nature the city of riders, Verden, forms the great end of the day. The town is dominated by the dome. The reputation as important rider and horse centre, adds to the significance of the town.

Away from the traffic and through park-like areas you reach the centre of Bremen. The city has the second largest North-Sea port and a great importance for the sea trade. A sight seeing tour of the old town, as well as the Schnoorviertel, the monument of Roland and the monument of the "Bremer Musicians" are absolutely a must. Individual departure in the afternoon or additional nights to enjoy this Hanseatic city.

Tour character

The Weser River Cycle Path follows mainly side roads with only scarce traffic as well as dedicated asphalted cycle paths and country roads. Only few differences in altitude have to be managed, therefore this cycle path is highly recommended for beginners or families with children.

Weserradweg Singletour
Der Weserradweg ist auch als Singletour bestens geeignet. Von Hann.Münden bis zur Porta Westfalica schlängelt sich die Weser durch Wiesen, Wälder und schmucke Fachwerkstädtchen - Entschleunigung pur. Danach ist es ein Radeln wie im Münsterland und ab Bremen hat man schon Nordsee-Feeling. Ein Tipp: genug Zeit einplanen, um Bremen und Bremerhaven zu genießen. Eine schöne Tour in allen Etappen:

Wunderschöne Fahrradtour von Hann Münden nach Bremen
Die Fahrradtour von Hann Münden nach Bremen (individuell, durch Eurobike organisiert) war wunderschön und hat riesig Spass gemacht. Die Buchung bei Eurobike war einfach und wurde von Herrn Koob sehr speditiv und kundenorientiert bearbeitet. Er ging auf unsere Spezialwünsche ein und war sehr unkompliziert. Die Hotel waren alle sehr gut, manche sogar ein Traum! Leider waren die Leih-E-Bikes von Rückenwind nicht die neuesten Modelle. Auch gab es nicht zu jedem Fahrrad eine Lenkertasche, erst nach 2-maligem Nachfragen wurde am nächsten Tag für meinen Mann doch noch eine (defekte) Lenkertasche geliefert. Die anderen Fahrradfahrer erhielten pro Fahrradteam nur eine Lenkertasche, was sehr unbefriedigend ist. Dies hat uns enttäuscht, wird doch im Reisebeschrieb versprochen, dass jedes Fahrrad eine Lenkertasche besitzt. Der Gepäcktransport wurde zuverlässig durchgeführt und unsere Koffer erwarteten uns meistens schon im neuen Hotel. Alles in allem eine perfekte Fahrradtour und das Wetter spielte auch noch mit, hatten wir doch immer schönes Wetter. Wegen den alten Modellen der E-Bikes und der fehlenden bzw. defekten Lenkertasche gibt es nur 4 Sterne.
