Attention: Due to the spearing of the swing bridge, cycling through the Überseehäfen is currently not possible! We recommend all cyclists in the Lohmannstraße to turn right into the Schleusenstraße, then left on the Barkhausenstraße to the customs gate Roter Sand and continue via the Franziussstraße and Brückenstraße to the intersection Am Erzhafen.

The largest city on the River Weser, the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen, is reached after a trip of approx. 350 km. You can feel the closeness of the North Sea in this harbor city. After this you will travel to the North mainly sheltered by the dykes. And finally you will reach the Seaside City of Bremerhaven and the attractive coastal vacation regions at the mouth of the River Weser and the North Sea.

The Weser Cycle Route is considered on of the best cycle routes in Europe! Surveys conducted by the German Bicycle Club (ADFC) claim the Weser Cycle Route as Germany’s most favorite cycle route.
