With more than 1,000 kilometres of signposted cycle paths, the holiday region Altes Land am Elbstrom is a true paradise for cyclists. There are six national cycle routes, including the popular Elberadweg and the Nordseeküsten-Radweg which is included in the Guinness Book of Records, or the Niedersächsischen Milchstraße and eight local round routes, such as the Obstroute, which takes in orchards, and the Mühlenroute, passing by the region’s mills, making the region perfect for both young and old pedal-pushers. Our cycling magazine “Rückenwind” provides all the information you need for a great cycling holiday here. With our detailed cycling maps for the east and west parts of the Stade region, cyclists simply can’t go wrong. The maps can be ordered through the online shop.
