    The Aller is often referred to as the river of 100 springs. In many sections, the Aller flows through a natural landscape across meadows and through forests, small settlements and dreamy villages. Be inspired by the natural beauty of this unique river landscape on your bike ride along the Aller. Windmills, historic castles, towns, villages and a former Cistercian monastery are all waiting to be "discovered" en route.
