When you enjoy cycling in the Emsland region, you will always come across mysterious moorland landscapes, which you can get to know in different ways. Along the cycle paths, exciting nature trails await you, the Moor Museum and many nature reserves where you can experience the moor habitat up close and in its full splendor.

In this collection we show you the eight most beautiful day tours in Emsland, which will lead you through the enchanted world of the moors. The circuits are between 16 and 43 miles (26 and 70 kilometers) long and almost free of gradients. Besides the wonderful nature you will experience a lot of culture in different museums as well as the charm of the shipping town Haren and the old town in Meppen.

But the Emsland also has a lot to offer next to the moors: The region is criss-crossed by an almost gravel-free cycle path network with a total length of 2,175 miles (3,500 kilometers). Historic wind and water mills, magnificent manor houses, the unique Clemenswerth Castle and lots of water in the form of rivers, canals and lakes provide for varied cycling tours. There are a total of 45 day tours in Emsland, all of which are dedicated to a specific theme. In addition to the eight day tours in this collection, you will also find the remaining 45 tours in our profile.
