Cycling in East Frisia is a truly diverse experience. Here, you can simply take a deep breath and enjoy the extensive, rugged nature of the north while you roll over green meadows and fields or ride over dead straight dikes and breathe the salty sea air. In between, rustic windmills or ancient lighthouses invite you to make small stops. Sleepy villages and lively towns bring you closer to the culture of the far north and invite you to cultural and culinary excursions before you embark on a further voyage of discovery.

The five themed cycle paths in this Collection are the perfect foundation for extensive East Frisia cycling adventures. Explore the beautiful parklands of the Ammerland, enjoy mystical moorland on the Fehnroute and experience the contrast between the barren Geestlands and the fertile pastures of the Marsch on the Tour de Fries. The International Dollard Route can be a very special experience, as it includes various ferries in its Tour planning and takes you to the North Sea island of Borkum in the middle of the Lower Saxony Wadden Sea National Park.

The tours are between 100 and 180 miles (158 and 300 kilometers) long and therefore suitable as stage tours. In four to six days, they offer you ideal opportunities to experience East Frisia up close. In the stage towns, you will easily find cozy accommodation, Nordic restaurants and a varied cultural programme. But you'll also be well taken care of outside the cities, as there are many resting places along the routes where cyclists and e-bikers can refuel themselves (and their e-bikes at numerous charging stations). And if your plans should change or you only want to ride individual stages, you still remain flexible, because the public buses also take bicycles with them. Ostfriesland is ready to give you an unforgettable cycling holiday!
