Today's stage takes you 34 kilometers to the picturesque Hanseatic city of Stade. From Harsefeld you drive through forest and field to Bliedersdorf, where one of the oldest field churches in the region is located. From there it continues to Horneburg. The small river flows through the town and has a small castle with a beautiful castle garden. On the route from Horneburg to Stade you drive through the largest fruit growing area in Germany: here the apple, cherry, pear and plum trees stretch as far as the eye can see. A real splendor at flowering and a delight for the palate at harvest time. You cycle past the magnificent fruit farms and can try the regional delicacies in the lovingly designed farm shops. About ten kilometers after Horneburg you will already reach the Elbe, along whose banks you will be directed to the Hanseatic city of Stade. You can end the day in one of the many restaurants in the lovely old town.
