Cycling from Bremen to green countryside – Worpswede loop

Bike Touring Collection by Bremen erleben

The bicycle-friendly city of Bremen in north-west Germany offers many great cycling Tours. Outside of the city, you can surround yourself with unspoilt nature as you cycle through enchanted moors and along winding rivers. For those of you that don’t like climbing, we have good news – you ride almost exclusively on flat paths.

In this Collection, we guide you on a great bike Tour, which is a 62-kilometre (38.5-mile) loop from Bremen to the artists' village Worpswede and back again. Your journey begins from Bremen’s central station which is easy to reach with local and long-distance trains as well as the Region-S-Bahn or tram. From the station, you get on your bike and pedal out of the city through Bürgerpark. On the way to Worpswede, you visit wide landscapes, romantic rivers and unique nature reserves.

Along the route, you also find good infrastructure for cyclists: in addition to comfortable rest stops for well-earned breaks, a number of bicycle repair stations with air pumps, repair kits and tools are dotted along the route. This will ensure that you have a good time on your bike when exploring Bremen and the surrounding area.

    The beautiful round trip over Worpswede begins at Bremen Central Station. From here you cycle directly into the green oasis of the Bürgerpark and on through the city forest to the Westliches Hollerland nature reserve. You can observe the flora and fauna here from bird watching huts.Then you roll a bit through the wonderful nature along the Wümme. After you have crossed it, the route takes you directly along the banks of the Wörpe. Behind Falkenberg you leave the small tributary of the Wümme and drive past wide, lush meadows to Worpswede, which is located on a small hill.In the artist village, it is worth taking a long break. In museums, exhibitions and galleries you will find over 100 years of art and culture by different artists. There are also cozy cafés in the village where you can fortify yourself with coffee and cake.Afterwards you cycle with renewed energy. After you have crossed the Hamme, you immerse yourself in the fascinating nature of the Hammeniederung. You take a dangling along the Beek and finally meet the Hamme again, the course of which you follow. On the way you always have great opportunities to watch birds, which feel particularly comfortable in the moors and wet meadows.Shortly before you are back in Bremen, you will reach the Wümme again. It flows in winding loops through the flat landscape. You follow it until you cling to its tributary, the Kleine Wümme, and cycle back to Bremen on its bank, where you reach the starting point at the train station again.
