The relaxed stages on this Weser bike tour leave enough time for you to explore all the sights along the way. The Weserbergland region is well known for its cultural richness. Follow the traces of knights, monks and traders on this important trade route, and marvel at impressive buildings commissioned by dukes, kings and electoral princes. Your cycle tour follows the river, which meanders through fairy-tale forests. In five days you will cycle from Hann. Münden, located at the confluence of the Werra and Fulda to the Weser. Finally you reach Hameln, which has much more to offer than just the legend of the Pied Piper.

Day 1: Individual arrival in Hann. Münden

Hann. Münden, where the rivers Werra and Fulda unite to form the Weser, enchants visitors with its framework buildings: Here you will find fine specimens of the Weser Renaissance. Embedded in historical fortifications, the old Werra Bridge, the tremendous Welfen Castle and the town hall await enthusiastic visitors. Booked rental bikes will be available at the hotel.

Day 2: Hann. Münden – Bad Karlshafen / Beverungen, approx. 45 / 55 km

Your first stage of the tour leads you through the Hessen Weserbergland region, past Reinhardshagen and the former Benedictine Monastery of Bursfelde in the Romanesque style. The pretty baroque town of Bad Karlshafen offers you the opportunity to visit the saltwater thermal baths or the Huguenot museum. The small town of Beverungen attracts guests with the remains of a castle from 1330.

Day 3: Bad Karlshafen – Holzminden / Bodenwerder, approx. 40 – 55 km

Today you will leave the foothills of the Solling behind you, before reaching the Fürstenberg castle, which is yet another great example of the Weser-Renaissance. It was first built around 1600 as a hunting castle and offers visitors an excellent view of the Weser Valley. Passing through Höxter with its numerous wooden-framed houses, you will reach Bodenwerder, the home of Münchhausen.

Day 4: Holzminden – Hamelin / Rinteln, approx. 25 – 55 km

You will get on your bike again and cycle along the river Weser. We recommend a detour to the castle Hämelschenburg, an especially beautiful example of Weser Renaissance architecture. The destination of your journey, the Pied Piper town Hamelin, is close by. A Pied Piper open-air festival and the Pied Piper House evoke the origin of this famous legend.
On a city tour through the old town you will explore the buildings – some of them might have witnessed the tragic events described in the famous story.

Day 5: Individual departure or extended stay

Your Weser bike tour ends today. If you would like to stay a bit longer, we’d be happy to extend your stay.
