Cycle tour to the "East Frisian Islands"

Cycling in East-Friesland is a special pleasure! Where else in Germany can you combine fresh North-sea climate, flat natural landscapes, a lot of interesting culture and hospitality as well as ideal cycle paths to such a varied cycle tour? Follow us to hidden moor villages, green dykes and idyllic marshes. Explore the culture of Störtebeker’s region or the tea, an East-Frisian national beverage. Rest at “leaning” churches and historic chieftain fortresses and discover picturesque little villages of this unique region. Highlights are days on the islands Norderney and Borkum.

Das machen wir mal wieder
Wir haben die Reise über Mecklenburger Radtouren gebucht. Reiseunterlagen und Beschreibung waren super. Die Betreuung vor Ort war sehr gut und informativ, schon fast familiär. Da es die erste Tour dieser Art war wurden unsere Befürchtungen, wir könnten uns nicht zurecht finden, recht schnell zerstreut. Die Wegmarkierungen haben wir gut gefunden. Auch alternative Routen konnten genutzt werden. Die Inselbesuche sind eine willkommene Abwechslung. Besonders Borkum hat uns gefallen. Der Gepäcktransfer hat bestens funktioniert. Die Hotels waren super. Besonders das Smutje in Norden hat uns gefallen. Wir haben uns auf jeden Fall vorgenommen, wieder bei Rückenwind zu buchen. Wir sind mit eigenen Fahrrädern angereist.

Solala ... !? Bitte bessere Ausführung.
Die Unterlagen waren zum Teil nicht von unserer Reise, nur die ersten 3 Tage von 8. Wir erhielten sie auch erst am Abend um 19h in unserem Hotel. Fahrräder waren nicht von gleicher Stärke und Qualität. Die Preisaufschläge von den 2 Hotels waren nicht gerechtfertigt. Nicht in alle Hotels WLAN.
