Hop on your bike, bring along your friends, leave the urban jungle behind you and immerse yourself in Hamburg’s fascinating nature. Outside of the city, a world of mysterious moors, wide marshes, idyllic woods, winding rivers, and cultural landscapes await. The greener side of Hamburg offers great cycling routes for everyone.

Hamburg's bicycle campaign ‘Fahr ein solidarisches Hamburg’ (ride united in Hamburg) invites you to discover the city in this Collection. We present eight cycling Tours that will take you into the unique and diverse nature outside of the city. In the Alte Land, you will ride through picturesque fruit-growing areas; you can watch animals and discover rare plants in the moors; the Harburg mountains offer crisp climbs; and pretty paths lead along the Alster River. Both adventurers, leisure cyclists, and sporty bikers will find something for them in these Tours.

Hamburg has great infrastructure for cyclists such as city bike stations, bike+ride, and air pump stations. In the colder months, the roads are also cleared of leaves and snow. There are also great cycle routes running through the city in the shape of a star and guaranteeing smooth rides along tarmacked paths and quiet roads. The cycle routes network will be finished in 2022. You can find the current status at: hamburg.de/fahrradfahren-in-hamburg/300372/velorouten

All the Tours in this Collection can be reached via the cycle routes or by public transport. You can also rent a city bike at all of the starting points. This way you can flexibly and spontaneously enjoy the nature of Hamburg on your bike.
