Cycle tours in East Frisia

Our cycling holidays in East Frisia take you to the northwest of Germany. Small but beautiful, the region stretches between the North Sea, the Ems, and the Jade Bay. Varied landscapes await you, characterized by geest areas, marshland, and upland moors. The East Frisian Islands are located off the mainland and are strung together like a string of pearls. As part of the Lower Saxony Wadden Sea National Park, the islands not only offer you the daily experience of low and high tide but also a unique flora and fauna that is second to none.

On our cycling holidays in East Frisia, you are never far from the water. Whether on land or on one of the islands, enjoy the fresh sea air, the seemingly endless view of the North Sea, small picturesque towns, and the sweet idleness of the kilometers of fine sandy beaches. With a bit of luck, you might catch a glimpse or two of the seals and grey seals cavorting on the sandbanks. Thanks to the flat and well-signposted cycle paths, our cycling tours in East Frisia are ideal for cycling tour beginners, but connoisseurs and leisurely cycling holidaymakers also get their money's worth. Take part in a teetied, the famous East Frisian tea time. The East Frisians celebrate their enjoyment of tea on many occasions, including as a welcome drink.
