Mountain biking

an adrenaline-fuelled ride across Lower Saxony

The terrain can get pretty hilly in the Harz mountains and Naturpark Solling-Vogler – both regions are a veritable paradise for fans of the rapid descent. And that applies in almost any weather because summer or winter for real bikers the challenge of nature is the only thing that matters. The more demanding the climb, the more exciting the descent and the more sublime the biking experience. Flowing downhills, single trails, drops, North Shore trails and much more to thrill any mountain biker. Think this sport is only for young daredevils? Well think again! Mountain biking is becoming increasingly popular and nowadays you’ll see mountain bikers of all ages riding through forests and over mountains, all of them in search of an athletic challenge and rewarded with breathtaking views and beautiful countryside. Do you too enjoy taking in the view of a hilly landscape after a demanding climb? Or are you already looking forward to the adrenaline rush on your next downhill?
Then you should give it a try! Lower Saxony features many upland areas with great mountain bike regions and trails of varying levels of difficulty. Everyone can find a route to match their riding skills and physical condition perfectly, for example in Lower Saxony's two TOP mountain bike regions: Volksbank Arena Harz and Naturpark Solling-Vogler, where trails have been created and signposted to offer maximum riding fun while being kind to nature at the same time. The other upland areas of Lower Saxony are great for mountain biking too – Deister, Süntel, Göttinger Wald, Rothaargebirge and Harburger Berge all offer tremendous scenery and challenging upland terrain. These areas all feature some signposted mountain bike routes. Don’t own a bike, or prefer not to take it along on holiday? No problem, you can rent one in the Harz mountains and Naturpark Solling-Vogler. Would you like a local expert to guide you through the forest? Need help setting up your bike? Need a GPS unit with local routes?
You’ll receive competent on-site support for all these issues and more in our two mountain bike regions.
While you’re enjoying the adrenaline rush however, please be considerate of other visitors and animals in the forest and ride only on marked trails! Observe the rules of the trail!
