Cycling tours are currently very popular! For those who like to experience nature from the saddle, these cycle routes are a must. Cycling paths along rivers are very popular due to their mostly flat route profile. They are often characterised by a particularly attractive and varied route.
The paths develop their own characteristic charm.
We have put together a small collection of links of the most beautiful river bike trails in the north.

- North-Eastsea Canal-Cycle path: >Dreamlike<
Wanderlust and a desire for dream ships? On their journey through the Kiel Canal, ocean liners, cargo ships and small boats cruise between Brunsbüttel and Kiel Fjord. Cyclists can even watch the ships from the shore without binoculars. And there is plenty of food for dreaming away, because the narrow waterway is very busy. The hinterland is adorned with noble manor houses and bathing lakes.

Both are little known beyond Lower Saxony and are considered insider tips.” That’s why the magazine recommends combining the Hunteradweg and Oste-Radweg in its latest issue 4/17: “If you combine them into one tour, you’ll experience contemplative days in nature.”
