Bike Touring Highlight (Segment)
The Steinhuder Meer offers cyclists and tourists many opportunities to spend their free time and is always worth a detour.
Interesting for cyclists: the Steinhuder Meer can be reached by bus lines that carry bicycle trailers if certain points want to be reached or the routes are too long or shortened.
In Steinhude itself, the fishing and weaving museum with toy museum, the insect museum with free flight hall, the Seeger linen weaving mill and the nearby dinosaur park Münchehagen are worth seeing

In the Steinhuder Meer holiday region, cycling is the most popular holiday activity alongside swimming. No cyclist can miss the opportunity to circle the Steinhuder Meer at least once on the excellently developed circular route. The approximately 32-kilometer tour combines the surprisingly numerous cultural and, above all, scenic highlights by the sea. So you can easily spend a whole day on and off the circular route.
On this route you can travel by bike or on foot through diverse landscapes that surround the large lake like a sparkling gem. The bank will change its shape several times during our hike. Sometimes it's trees that line up directly on the water's edge, sometimes it's belts of reeds, then the flat spur of a large dune pushes into the water and forms a fine sandy beach. You move in the shade of a forest that finally opens up into wide wet meadows. Later you reach a jungle-like alder forest, a paradise for songbirds and water birds, which we are allowed to enter on a paved footbridge.

Very nice way. In some parts, bike and footpaths are led together. Please watch out for oncoming traffic and pedestrians.
On the north shore of the sea, the path leads over the promenade. It gets very tight here, especially in the season and on weekends. You should be prepared to push the bike in parts or to avoid the sea road to the north.
The circular route is easy to take by train via the Wunstorf or Neustadt a. Rbge. to reach. In the summer months there is a daily cycle bus (line 835) that goes around the Steinhuder Meer on weekends and holidays in spring and autumn. Up to 16 bicycles can be transported on a bicycle trailer.
