If you are looking for a cycling holiday for the first time or aiming to ride somewhere different, why not put Germany at the top of your destination list? You will find our cycling holidays in northern, central, and southern Germany cover all corners of the country along some of Europe's best cycle paths and routes. The flat landscapes of the north have their own unique character. The North Sea and Baltic Sea coasts have hundreds of kilometres of cycle paths and the islands off the coast are unique places to ride around.
Rivers and lakes also characterise Germany too. The Mecklenburger Lake District has an abundance of bird life and lakes to swim in. Lake Constance, Lake Starnberg, Gross Stechlin and numerous smaller lakes appeal to young and old alike. The famous rivers also have long-distance cycle paths next to them including the Danube, Rhine, Elbe, and Weser. Germany is one of the best places to go on a cycling holiday in Europe and it is no surprise that cycling holidays are one of the most popular holiday types here.
Quiet beaches on the Baltic Sea, quaint fishing villages, thatched houses, and modern cities await you in northern Germany. On near-perfect bike paths, you’ll cycle from one highlight to another on flat terrain.
Discover the Weser Cycle Path, the city of Lubeck, the East Frisia islands and the bustling city of Berlin on a unique tour of the Brandenburg region.
The rivers of Germany are the main highlight of any cycling holiday here. The riverside cycle paths run for hundreds of kilometres and are very easy to follow. Enchanting castles, palaces, and vineyards will accompany you on your way.
A cycling holiday in central Germany offers a combination of relaxation and daily activity. Discover the Moselle Cycle Path on our tour which is ideal for families. We also have cycle tours along the Rhine from Strasbourg in neighbouring Alsace to Mainz.
Beautiful landscapes, great cycling paths, delicious cuisine, great beer, and sparkling lakes are all highlights of southern Germany. It really is one of the best places to go on a cycling holiday anywhere in Europe.
We have several cycle tours in beautiful Bavaria and around the international region of Lake Constance. There are also dedicated lakeside cycle tours around the Bavarian lakes too. In southern Germany, there is a perfect blend of a great quality of life and an almost unparalleled cycling holiday experience.
Cycling holidays are an excellent way to see new places and ride between cities and there is no added pressure on getting to the hotel in the fastest time possible.
We have a wide selection of cycle tours to choose from available across Europe, but several key themes are constant throughout.
