Self-guided cycling holidays in Germany

Few countries are as well set up for cycling holidays as Germany. With many kilometres of excellent, well signposted long-distance cycle paths linking its fascinating historic cities. These well-signposted routes often follow the course of the great rivers, such as the Elbe, the Havel or the mighty Danube, along tranquil riverside paths. Unsurprisingly, given Germany’s location in central Europe, the routes occasionally cross over into neighbouring countries, offering great opportunities for a multicultural European cycling holiday. Whichever route you choose, you are guaranteed idyllic scenery, charming towns and villages and very pleasant and undemanding cycling.

Our self-guided cycling holidays in Germany include luggage transportation, detailed route descriptions and maps, as well as very comfortable accommodation.

Bicycle hire

If you don’t bring your own, you can rent a bicycle from us. All bikes are provided with bicycle locks, repair kit, map holder and one 10L waterproof Ortlieb pannier bag per bike.

We deliver the bicycle at your first accommodation and pick it up from your last accommodation after your last cycling day. You just need to give us your body length, so that you receive the correct bike size, and we take care of everything else.
