There is no better way to truly immerse yourself in the landscapes and magnificent scenery than from the saddle of a bicycle.

Ostfriesland-Tour - Coast and lakes, channels and forests

ostfriesland radtour ostfriesland tour 1 05

The Friesian route leads you to the harbor town of Emden, where you should visit the East Friesian national museum and the Art’s hall. From here, it is not far to go to Greetsiel, a more than 600 year-old fisher village, with plenty of cutters and sailing boats, the twin mills and the gabled houses. Visit the dike Marienhafe, to see the striking church tower.

In former times, it was a hideout to legendary pirate Klaus Störtebeker. The oldest town of East Friesland, Norden, is the next destination. On the coast, the Friesian route follows castles of Hage, Lütetsburg and Dornum; later the route leads into the inland to Wiesmoor. Here, you’ll find the greatest greenhouse site in Europe; this is the reason for calling the town “Blumenbeet Ostfrieslands” (flowerbed of East Friesland). Finally, the route leads to the “Fünf-Mühlen-Land” (five mills land) Großefehn.

Our suggestion
On the way back to Emden, we recommend an intermediate stop in the Ihlower forest, a natural forest with very old oaks and lime-trees, or take a rest at the great lake, a popular destination for excursions.

If you prefer sporty, longer stages on the bicycle and like discovering many things in our country, our East Friesland tour is the right thing for you: 7 or 15 days of adventure along some fantastic routes! You will traverse along the small calm villages in their original look – with Romantic and Gothic brick stone churches, fully operative windmills, visit some of the cultural highlights and bike along navigable channels, water gates and drawbridges. Like great veins, the rivers and channels cross the flat land.

The North Sea, Dollart and Jadebusen, the Zwischenahner Meer and many natural or artificial lakes characterize the life in this region. In former times, fishing was the main income source of the population. Even today, the colorful fish cutters form the appearance of the fisher harbors. Naturally, a wide range of fish delicacies are the highlights in almost all menus of the local gastronomy.
