The Weserbergland hills contain some of the finest examples of Weser Renaissance and baroque architecture. This region is also home to the German Fairytale Route, featuring Baron Münchhausen and his tall tales, and the Pied Piper of Hamelin. From here, you continue to Bremen through a region of moors, sandy heathland and fens. The route then passes through the idyllic Weser marshes to Nordenham. From here, you can catch a ferry to Bremerhaven on the other side of the estuary or continue to Cuxhaven famous for its 12km sandy beach. Alternatively, you can continue across the Butjadingen peninsula to explore the Lower Saxony Wadden Sea National Park. Terrain: riverside cycle paths with very few hills; mainly surfaced with asphalt and crushed brick/stone. Low-traffic and especially well suited to cycling-tour beginners and families because of the excellent facilities en route. Scenery: the cycle route runs from the Weserbergland hills to the open stretches of the North German Plain, and from the Lower Weser shipping route to the estuary.
