    Your tour in the footsteps of the East Frisian Fehn culture begins in Leer, which you can easily reach by train from different directions, for example from Cologne, Leipzig or Hamburg. It is almost 60 kilometers from here to Wiesmoor, the flower community of East Frisia. The tour takes you in a dangle around the empty seaport, through the historic old town and past the Leer train station. When you start your tour at the train station, you can take a detour to the empty old town at the harbor, which is worth seeing, before you go out of town on the other side of the tracks.Now you cycle along wide fields and past the magnificent Evenburg Castle. On forest and field paths you cycle through the velvet municipality of Hesel, which lies on the Oldenburg-East Frisian Geestrück and hides many of the oldest traces of human settlement in East Friesland. At Holtland you can visit the Marienkirche from the 13th century. From here, the Fehn route leads you northwest into the Moormerland, where you can immerse yourself in the world of Fehn culture.At Boekzetelerfehn you cross the first drainage canal and cycle past Wieken, the smaller side canals, with pretty, white bascule bridges. In front of it stands the Heitens Huus, an old Fehnhaus that can be visited as a living museum. Then the path leads you northeast to the Timmel harbor by the Timmel sea, a true lake paradise with a sandy beach and a wide range of water sports fun. From here it is only a few kilometers to Großefehn, where the path always leads you along the canal. You drive past a magnificent windmill, where you can take a coffee break in the canal on a traditional boat.You will soon reach your stage destination Wiesmoor, which will enchant you with its East Frisian charm. You can discover traditional peat ships, visit the peat and settlement museum in the middle of a wonderful landscape park and bathe in the moor pool at the Ottermeer. There is also an idyllic campsite with a tent site, bungalows and caravans right behind the lido. In Wiesmoor you will also find comfortable apartments, hotels or guest houses. At tourismus-wiesmoor.de various accommodations are summarized for you.
