The 380 kilometre Ems-Radweg follows the course of the Ems river, from the Senne sand dunes to the North Sea coast, from the source of the Ems in Hövelhof to the estuary in East Frisia.
Route and sights
Following the entire course of a river from its source to its estuary really is a special experience. Cyclists can do this on the EmsRadweg, which starts in the Senne moorland in Hövelhof and ends at the Ems estuary in Emden on the North Sea coast.
Visitors can see for themselves how the Ems grows from a tiny stream to a major majestic river on its way to the North Sea. The EmsRadweg path follows the general direction of the water, but also weaves in and out of the historic towns and cities and idyllic landscapes on both sides of the Ems river.
As one of the few long-distance cycle paths, the EmsRadweg bears the prestigious title of “ADFC 4-star Quality Route” from the German Cyclists' Association.
