East Frisian - Based in one hotel

Radreise vom Hotel Reichshof in Norden

Centre based bike tours

To drive in Eastern Frisia means cycling alongside dykes and coasts and past lighthouses. Especially the East Frisian island Norderney is perfect for cycling. At the same time you can enjoy the fresh sea breeze at the North Sea without any worries. But not only the stiff breeze is typical for East Frisia, but some dreamy fenland canals, pristine wetlands and a very special tea ceremony too. In this region a cycle tour means “cycling always close to the wind" – best with Rückenwind.

Itinerary

You arrive in the oldest town of Eastern Friesland, the town „Norden“. In the late afternoon you will have an info talk and the bike handover (if booked). After that you can stroll through the nice town a bit to get in the right mood for the next day. 

Cycling alongside the dyke you reach the 600 years old fishing village Greetsiel. After a break in the picturesque cutter harbour you continue cycling to the lighthouse in Pilsum. Cycling through the inland you reach Eilsum with the 36 metres high belfry. Via the old dyke of Wirdum you drive back to the North. (about 58 km)

Today you visit the Island Norderney (ferry inclusive) and you will leave all your cares behind. As an alternative the town of Norden has something to offer too: for example the Tea Museum, the heritage railway or you cycle to the seal breeding station in Norddeich and watch the feeding of the seals. By the way you will learn some worth knowing things about the World Heritage natural site Wadden Sea.

Today you will enjoy a day full of history. At first you cycle into the pirates' nest of Störtebeker. You cycle further to Münkeboe. In the local “Dörpmuseum” (museum) you will learn a lot of things about life and work of the people in a little moorland village a hundred years ago. Via Berumerfehn and Hage you reach Lütetsburg. The castle grounds are one of the biggest and most beautiful ones in Northern Germany. Here you can finish the day in the park cafè. (about 40 km)

From Norddeich you cycle in eastern direction into the smallest bathing resort of the North Sea coast with a lot of recreation offers. Here you have a chance to take a ferry (not inclusive; see our note) to the Island Baltrum. Alternatively you cycle alongside the dyke to Dornum. The former site of East Frisian chiefs with its water castle has a lot to show. Enjoy typical East Frisian tea and homemade cakes in the castle garden and explore the castle. (about 60 km)

After breakfast individual return journey or prolongation of your holiday.

Tour character

Sternfahrt Norden/Norddeich
Eine gut organisierte Radreise, leider konnten wir wegen Corona die Insel Norderney, als Tagestourist, nicht besuchen. Als besonderes Highlight ist die Gastfreundschaft in der Region zu bewerten.

Abwechslungsreicher Sternfahrt in Ostfriesland
Die flache Landschaft und das Wattenmeer mit den wechselnden Gezeiten hat uns fasziniert. Die Menschen sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Das Essen in den Restaurants war lecker und abwechslungsreich. Aufgrund des heissen Sommers, war die Briese sehr angenehm.
