Itinerary

Start the circular tour at bicycle centre Oldenburg . After the information meeting you are free to explore Oldenburg.

On your first stage you cycle through "Ammerland" region with tidy little rhododendron gardens. Health resort Bad Zwischenahn on "Zwischenahner Meer" has a well known speciality to offer: Smoortaal – fresh smoked eel. You pass the highest elevation of East Frisia (18 m) near Remels and reach Wiesmoor. (approx. 55 km)

Through Fehn-settlements you reach "Aurich" with its historic centre. The East Frisian capital was ruled during centuries by East Frisian chieftains and dukes. Along Ems-Jade-Canal you cycle to Emden with its sea-port. Emden once was one of the wealthiest harbours of Europe: nevertheless it never joined the Hanse. You should visit the arts hall and Otto-museum. (approx. 55 km)

Cycle through “Krummhörn” to picturesque fisher village Greetsiel, the biggest crab-fisher port of Weser-Ems region. Don´t pass by without having a couple shrimps. Past the bay of Ley – where you might be lucky to spot seals – you cycle to Norden, resp. Norddeich at Wadden Sea. (approx. 55 km)

Norderney is the oldest health-bath at the North Sea and has been sought after for more than 200 years by persons looking for recuperation. The ferry takes about 1 h from Norddeich to the Island which is ideally suited to be explored by bicycle. Enjoy the Island, the beach-life and National Park Wadden Sea. Ferry cruise incl. bicycle is not included in the package price, visitor´s tax payable locally.

Leaving Norden you keep to the coast and cycle on the dyke to Dornum with the most beautiful water-castle of East Frisia. Cycling through the marshes you reach the ancient East Frisian chieftain domicile Esens. Overnight at Wittmund. (approx. 50 km)

Leaving Wittmund your first stop is castle Gödens. Along "Zeteler marsh" you cycle to "Jadebusen". Nestling between forest and sea Varel with Dangast, the oldest North Sea bath at Lower Saxony's coast, constituts an attraction not only for art-lovers, who wish to follow the traces of famous Expressionists (Radziwill-museum).
Overnight in Dangast or surrounding. (approx. 50 km)

On winding roads you cycle to animal- and fun park Jaderberg, home for more than 600 animals. Throught the region "Ammerland" you cycle to Rastede which was used to be summer residence of Oldenburg´s dukes and earls. Cycle through the spacious park towards Oldenburg. (approx. 50 km)

The route

All routes are completely flat! You cycle mainly on paved or plastered country lanes, sometimes on minor roads.

Schöne Tour
Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Fahrrad Tour, manchmal war es wie bei einer Schnitzeljagd und unsere roten E‘s waren nicht immer sofort zu sehen …aber es hat eine Menge Spaß gemacht.

Eine sehr schöne Fahrradtour - mit tollen Ostfriesen und wunderbaren Naturerlebnissen
Am schönsten war es für mich in Norden, nicht nur bedingt durch die 1 1/2 Tage die ich vor Ort erleben durfte, sondern da hier wirklich alles gestimmt hat. Die tollsten Naturerlebnisse hatte ich auf den Fahrten von Norden nach Wittmund und anschließend weiter nach Dangast - herrlich! Gerne würde ich diese Tour noch einmal fahren ;-) Das Hotel Friesengeist, gleich am ersten Tag der Tour sollte möglichst durch ein anderes ersetzt werden - hier kann man, muss aber nicht, übernachten. Alles Weitere war tippitoppi :-)!

Trotz schlechter Radwege eine schöne Tour!
Die Radwege sind überwiegend in einem schlechten bis sehr schlechten Zustand. Trotzdem eine schöne Tour.

Vielen Dank für die Rückmeldung und schön das es Ihnen gefallen hat. Für die Radwege können wir nicht viel aber wir schauen uns die Route nochmal genau - an ob wir etwas anders fahren können, wo die Radwege besser ausgestattet sind.

Trozu Corona Einschränkungen eine schöne Reise
Auch wenn der Tourenverlauf kurzfristig coronabedingt modifiziert werden musste und somit Emden nicht angefahren werden konnte, haben wir schöne Eindrücke der Region gewonnen.

Individuelle Reise "Ostfriesische Impressionen"
Sehr schön ausgewählte Route, an Kanälen entlang, an und auf Deichen, durch bezaubernde Baumalleen, durch weite Natur, auf überwiegend sehr ruhigen Wegen. Viele gute Besichtigungstipps zu Kirchen, holländischen Windmühlen, Wasserburgen, kleinen Ortschaften und sehenswerten Städten. Fast alle Hotels (außer einem Hotel, aber das lag ja an meiner zu kurzfristigen Buchung) waren prima und das Personal freundlich und hilfsbereit. Die Tourenbeschreibung war gut und nur ganz selten war ich irritiert, weil z.B. wegen Brückenbaus ein Teil des Wegs gesperrt war. Insgesamt war es für mich ein herrliche Fahrradreise, die ich gerne weiterempfehlen möchte.
