Your journey begins in Bremen, absolutely bike-friendly and even in third place in bike cities across Europe. Here you feel comfortable as a bike traveler and start with a wonderful feeling on your journey along the Mönchsweg. The first stage covers 70 kilometers, so I recommend that you start early to have enough time for the great stops. Passing the Bremen Cathedral and the Bremen city forest, you immediately reach a rural setting, cross the nature reserve West Hollerland, the Borgfeld Wümmewiesen and the Fischerhuder Wümmeniederung. Many rare bird species live here, and with a little luck and patience you can spot them. The route continues through the small towns of Fischerhude, Wilsted, Vorwerk and Horstedt, where you can discover idyllic half-timbered houses, churches from different eras, great gardens and small forests. The places on your way invite you to take a little rest and refreshment. There's nothing standing in the way of a picnic in the country on your route. In Gyhum and Elsdorf you will pass exciting churches with an impressive history before you approach today's stage destination Zeven. Here you will find the St. Vitti Church, the monastery museum and contemporary art in the Municipal Gallery.
