Cycling holiday on Rügen - sporty experience in idyllic surroundings
The picturesque Baltic Sea island is considered one of Germany's most beautiful holiday destinations at almost any time of year thanks to its UNESCO World Heritage-listed landscapes and ornate architecture, and cycling on Rügen is one of the most popular leisure activities for visitors. Rügen offers countless opportunities for people who enjoy sporting activities in unspoilt nature. Almost three hundred kilometres of mostly signposted cycle paths await discovery here. Cycling and e-biking on Rügen takes you past endless sandy beaches, elegant seaside resorts, barren rocky landscapes, through pine forests and picturesque villages with magnificent villas and picturesque houses from the 19th and early 20th centuries. Extensive cycling tours are a leisurely yet healthy way to explore the island's cultural landscapes at length. As more and more people prefer cycling on Rügen to excursions by car or train, a dense network of routes has developed here to meet all cyclists' needs.
Cycling on RügenSunny paradise for cyclists of all ages
With sunny, hot weather in summer and mild, warmer-than-average temperatures in spring and autumn, you can get on your bike on Rügen at almost any time of year and enjoy the island's magnificent beauty to the full. As the landscapes are characterised by only a few gradients, cycling on Rügen is a relaxed pleasure for young and old. For those who want to relax a little in the course of an extended tour, e-biking on Rügen is a leisurely and equally invigorating alternative. The cycle paths of the dense network were mostly laid out along the hiking routes, run only in a few sections on roads with little traffic and lead to all the sights of the island. Parking spaces for bicycles and special bicycle busses of the public transport network of Rügen, which travel to all places of interest on the island, round off the attractive offer.
