Although this is officially regarded as a long-distance cycle route the two Hanseatic cities of Hamburg and Bremen are actually not that far apart. Nevertheless it's well worth planning plenty of time for the trip – as there's so much to see along the way.
If you don't want to be constantly cycling against the wind blowing in from the west, it's best to start in Bremen, perhaps at the sculpture of the Town Musicians outside the UNESCO World Heritage town hall. Once outside the city, the landscape opens up into broad marshlands until you reach the artists' village of Fischerhude. Watermills, ponds and the church towers of pretty little towns such as Zeven and Sittensen are features along the route here, and in spring and autumn the Tiste Bauernmoor is a popular place for watching cranes. The many Melkhüser huts along the wayside are ideal places to take a break and enjoy some delicious dairy products. Kiekeberg open-air museum, the Schwarze Berge wildlife park and the Harburg hills are further attractions on the section to Hamburg, where another UNESCO World Heritage awaits – the Speicherstadt warehouse district.
