This cycle tour is an ideal opportunity to discover the varied landscape of Suedheide Nature Park, an area of more than 480 km² with heathlands, heather streams and the largest contiguous forest areas in Lower Saxony. Enjoy the unique flair of the royal town of Celle with over 450 listed timber-framed houses and the former Cistercian Cloister Wienhausen, one of the most important monuments of North German redbrick Gothic architecture.
The route follows flat so-called flat country cycle paths without significant gradients on well-developed and well-marked trails. Short stretches run along cycle paths alongside roads. This delightful bike tour focuses on experiencing nature at its best.
Existing cycle paths were used as far as possible in the interest of nature conservation. Some of them may be a little more difficult to navigate depending on the weather. We therefore recommend a sturdy touring bike, MTB or trekking bike for the tour.
The bike path is signposted throughout.
