New premium cycling route

The Töddenland Cycle Route in North Rhine-Westphalia has been designated a 'premium cycle route' by the German Cyclists' Federation (ADFC). The 121km circular tour passes through the northern Münsterland and the southern part of the Emsland region in Lower Saxony. It is named after the Tödden of Westphalia, travelling salesmen from the 17th and 18th centuries. Cyclists will also find other routes in North Rhine-Westphalia that have been quality certified by the ADFC. Hiking enthusiasts, meanwhile, might like to try the Töddenland walking trail.

With around 200 long-distance cycle routes and over 70,000 kilometres of walking trails, Germany is an ideal destination for active holidaymakers.
