Long rides in the Sauerland and Hessian Mountains in Germany are great on the right e-bike. You can cycle up to the summits of the low mountain ranges, enjoy wide views that stretch as far as the Rhön River, explore the Thuringian Forest, and roam the picturesque river valleys that spread out below you. You ride along well-maintained cycle paths through deep forests, past idyllic lakes and hidden springs. An e-bike Tour in the Sauerland and Hessian Mountains is unforgettable.
