Those hidden havens for cyclists, away from busy roads, still exist here. One such El Dorado is the ”RadReiseRegion Uelzen“ in the eastern part of the Lüneburg Heath.
From the Hundertwasser train station to the iodine-saline spa and from the museum village to the working animal safari park, there is much to discover on 1000 km of cycle paths around the towns of Uelzen and Bad Bevensen. The landscape is surprisingly diverse, with wonderful areas of heathland, wide floodplains, extensive woodlands and nature reserves to explore. 40 signposted circular tours (mostly away from other traffic), special facilities for racing cyclists and numerous bike-related services will meet every need.
Cyclists are drawn to the Uelzen area of the Heath for the following reasons:
- attractive bike paths
- smart signposting
- lots of sights and refreshment stops along the way
- rental and repair services
- overnight accommodation with a focus on cyclists
- between four and eleven starred bike tours through the Lüneburg Heath from each overnight stop
The cycle route network offers 40 starred cycle tours to meet every taste, including “Paths into nature” – seven round trips, developed jointly with the German Association for Nature Conservation (NABU), tours for families, for e-bikes and racing cyclists. Some tours have even been successfully tested on a hand bike.
