A well-kept network of cycle paths around Oldenburg takes you from the lively city center into green countryside. Here, you can cycle through the beautiful Ammerland, the magnificent Wildeshauser Geest Nature Park and the vast Wesermarsch. You can combine the exciting city highlights with unforgettable moments in nature as you cycle along the Oldenburg route.

Interesting museums, fascinating bridges, modern street art and impressive buildings like the castle or the Alte Landtag await you in the city. Along the way, cozy cafés and restaurants invite you to stop for a bite to eat or you can stroll through the pretty pedestrianised streets. As soon as you leave the last houses on the edges of the city, you will find yourself in the unmistakable country idyll of the surrounding countryside: meandering streams, ancient trees, enchanted moors and polders, the trickling Hunte and their glistening water and in old farms with lush gardens. Along the cycle paths, you'll come across quaint farm cafés where you can indulge in homemade delicacies such as fruity quark dishes, a glass of cool buttermilk or homemade cake.

The outer ring of the route around Oldenburg is 68 miles (110 kilometers) long and you can ride it well in two stages. From the city center, nine additional spokes lead to the outer ring, which are between six to nine miles (ten and 15 kilometers) long. Thanks to these connecting routes, you can also plan individual day trips and thus combine urban charm with soothing nature.
