Weser Cycle Path Stroll Tour

Hann. Münden - Minden.

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) 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 Gieselwerder.

You go on 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.

The little town Beverungen retained a lot of its historical face. 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.

Many an idyllic village on the road invites you to stay. Holzminden is well known for the production of aroma-essences and perfume-oils. 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

Minden once was a flourishing trading centre but was destroyed in great parts during World War II. It was reconstructed in an exemplary way. Undividual departure in the afternoon or additional nights.

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.

Calm, Well-Paved, Flat but Windy Route
Good cycle route if exercise is your objective. Routes were quiet (paved or forest route) with little vehicular traffic and easy to navigate. Hotel rooms were spacious but none had air-conditioning during a very hot & humid May (32 deg Celsius); breakfasts were plentiful and delicious. One rental bike supplied by Ruckenwind was too big for specified height. Actual mileage was significantly higher than described (daily reached 75 kms), luckily route was flat but windy. This was our 37th week-long European bike tour.
