Cycling along the North Sea coast...

With optional cycle tour of Norderney island

Cycling in East-Friesland is a special pleasure!

Follow us to hidden moor villages, green dykes and idyllic marshes. Explore the culture of Störtebeker’s region or the East-Frisian national beverage. Rest at “leaning” churches and historic chieftain fortresses and discover picturesque little villages of this unique region. Optional highlight is a day on Norderney island.

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-Friesland (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 on wadden sea (Wattenmeer). (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 Wattenmeer (mud-flats). 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-Friesland. Cycling through the marshes you reach the ancient East-Frisian chieftain domicile Esens. Accommodation 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 on Niedersachsen´s coast, constituts an attraction not only for art-lovers, who wish to follow the traces of famous Expressionists (Radziwill-museum).
Accommodation 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.

Friesisch herb aber schön
Bei Temperaturen um 15 Grad und täglichem Regen, war es für Ende Juli dann doch ganz schön friesísch herb. Aber mit der entsprechenden Regenkleidung hatte es auch seinen besonderen Charme durchs ostfriesische Land zu radeln. Die Räder fuhren sich sehr gut. Die Satteltaschen ermöglichten auch die Mitnahme von Wechselsachen und am Ende erwartete uns immer ein ansprechenes Hotel. Es hat uns sehr gefallen.
