Being on the road with a bike is the best part of our day. It doesn’t matter whether we ride along roads close to home or farther afield whilst on holiday. Nothing beats exploring a city or region by bike. You’re just fast enough to explore an area in depth but slow enough that you don’t miss any detail. You don't just see the sights, but also the areas in between. Isn’t this what a holiday should be about? A little café on the side of the road, a hidden park, and people smiling and waving at you from the side of the road.
It’s this world in between the highlights that remain hidden from many cyclists. Some don’t want to arrive at their destination sweaty after a strenuous Tour. Others aren’t quite fit enough or the paths are too steep. The solution – an e-bike holiday. People no longer see an e-bike as something only for the older generation. An e-bike Tour is fun, no matter your age. Even if you’re fit as a fiddle, you might still want to experience the scenery without straining your muscles too much. Or maybe you want to bring along your picnic basket and swimsuit, but the beautiful lake is 40 kilometres (28 mi) away. None of this matters with an e-bike.
To give you some initial inspiration, this Collection has 17 round trips, especially for e-bikes. We’ve chosen seven particularly beautiful regions: Munich, Frankfurt, the Harz mountains, the Ruhr region, Amsterdam, Brussels and Paris. The routes include nature and culture and are exciting for everyone.
The round trips are between 50 and 75 kilometres (30 and 46.6 mi) long. From flat landscapes to hills and mountains, everything is included. You’ll ride along beautiful bike paths through European cities, discover dune landscapes, medieval castles and pretty villages. There are many exciting highlights too. Being on the road with your bike is the best sense of freedom. These Tours are sure to put a smile on your face.

In the past two decades, Paris has transformed from a city of traffic jams to a city of bicycles. Of course, not every street is car-free, but now you can get around Paris by bike. So why not do a classic sightseeing by bike? The distances are short and exercise in the fresh air is a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of the big city.
You haven't seen the Ruhr area like this before! Pretty old towns, fabulous bike paths and lots of water. This 50-kilometer round takes you directly to the Ruhr. Let's go in Essen.The cycle expressway leads you out of Essen, a very well developed cycle path along an old railway line. In Mühlheim you cross the Ruhr and drive through the grounds of the state horticultural show.
“Emscher Park” is the short name of a gigantic project: after the coal and steel crises in the 1970s, things looked bleak in the Ruhr area. The cities in the northern Ruhr area did not want to accept this and have turned the area inside out with many projects. From now on, the Ruhr area should stand for art, nature and industrial culture.
Frankfurt can be so green! On this almost 65 kilometers long round you drive almost exclusively along the water and discover all kinds of green river landscapes. But first it goes out of the city concreted as usual. From the Eiserner Steg you drive along the Main to Rumpenheim. Shortly before you cross the Main by ferry, you can take a break in the nature reserve at a beautiful swimming lake.
