Arrival and departure
There are rail stations at the start point and final destination and in most towns along the route, so it is easy to get to and from the Weser-Radweg by train. You can find detailed information on connections and timetables (in German) at Deutsche Bahn. Bicycles can generally be taken on regional and InterCity trains. However, we would recommend booking in advance and checking availability. Tip: Take advantage of Deutsche Bahn's Niedersachsenticket deal.
The specifics of the tour
Virtually all of the Weser-Radweg has a main route and alternative route, so you can travel along both sides of the Weser river. One highlight of the route is the detour to the Butjadingen peninsula, which runs away from the Weser river and is therefore an additional section. There are numerous ferries running along the Weser-Radweg. For operating times, closures and information about building work or diversions, please visit the Weser-Radweg website.
