    This tour is short, compact and starts centrally in Hamburg Altona at the Platz der Republik. It is perfectly suited as a sporty after-work program on the road bike, where you deserve a whopping 320 meters in altitude on around 33 kilometers.Responsible for this is the notorious Waseberg, which comes up with 70 meters of altitude, some 16 percent slope and rough asphalt and - at least for North German conditions, quite a challenge. If he is not enough for you, drive him several times!This tour has much to offer not only for the calves, but also for the eyes. You cycle through the noble Hamburg suburb of Blankenese with its noble houses and you have always beautiful views of the Elbe. Above all, the view of the busy harbor on the other bank of the Elbe is definitely worth a break. At the leisurely pace of the huge container ships can be switched off after a strenuous tour great - the evening can begin!

Here we go. Passing the Hamburg airport, you can now walk to the northwest. You cross the A7, later the B4 and rejoice instead on the traffic-poor side roads, over which you finally reach Quickborn. If you fancy a big round, you can continue here to the northwest into the beautiful Himmelmoor - the largest moor in Schleswig-Holstein.If you stay on this lap, you are now on the way back. In the cozy restaurant Wulfsmühle you can strengthen yourself and then, as already on the way, on low-traffic side roads relaxed back to Fuhlsbüttel roll. Shortly before the starting point, a stop at the "Coffee to fly" is worthwhile: here you can treat yourself to a delicious coffee or a snack while watching the interesting hustle and bustle at the Hamburg airport.

    This tour starts with two cultural highlights: At the beginning there's real Hamburg football and real Hamburg bike history. Let's go in the middle of St. Pauli and before you swing on your bike, you can stand in peace in front of the Hamburg headquarters Radamega Bergamont and look across the street to the legendary Millerntor Stadium of FC St. Pauli. Then you are ready for a beautiful, about 60 kilometers long bike ride from the neighborhood to the dike.The route is long but consistently flat. Past the Landungsbrücken and between Grossmarkt and Hafencity, you will leave the city on the Elbe Cycle Route. About small winding roads you drive over the Elbe island Kaltehofe and on the dike of the Doveelbe to Altengamme. Here you meet the Marschbahndammweg, whose "green tunnel" usually brings you back to Hamburg, protected from the wind.The route is mostly idyllic and with a lot of northern flair. Locks, dikes, the Elbe and always cozy rest areas make for a great combination of sports and enjoyment. If you are looking for a refreshment on the way, you will definitely find the right location for it. For example, the Marsch dam leads you past a cozy Italian: how about a pizza in the old station building overlooking the lake?The end of the tour we have placed in the middle of the port city. Here you can - in the style of classic racing cycling - finish the tour in the Speicherstadt coffee roasting with freshly brewed espresso.
