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)

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)

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.
