From Hamburg to Bremen, from the Elbe to the Weser or simply from Hanseatic city to Hanseatic city. The long-distance cycle route Hamburg-Bremen connects the two best known and most important Hanseatic cities of Northern Germany. It leads you through the picture-book landscape in the Elbe-Weser-Dreieck, past wide meadows, lovely heathland, wonderful forests, small and large rivers, enchanted moors, idyllic lakes and picturesque villages.

150 kilometers (93 miles) of mostly flats roads take you from one city to another, with the only minor exception being the Harburg mountains. Along the route, you will find beautiful nature and unique scenery as well as many other Highlights in the romantic villages along the route. You will be fascinated not only by places of interest such as historic churches or the Otto Modersohn Museum but also by the villages themselves. With picturesque mill lakes, small cobblestone gazebos and antique half-timbered houses with inviting restaurants, guesthouses or hotels, they radiate a very special charm that invites you to linger.

This beautiful ride from Hanseatic city to Hanseatic city is presented in three stages—the perfect way to fill a long weekend. And even though the focus of the ride will be the country idyll and beautiful nature, you should not forget the start and end of the ride: The two exciting Hanseatic cities of Hamburg and Bremen are must-sees in themselves.

Little tip: Since the wind usually comes from the west, it can be easier to cycle the route from Bremen to Hamburg. Therefore, it is worth checking the weather forecast before planning. From the arrival and departure, this will not make a big difference, because Hamburg and Bremen are well connected to the train network and there are also frequent train connections between the two cities.
