All accommodation on this tour is in good mid-range Hotels (German Standard 3- 4Stars) and includes breakfast. Most German hotels do not offer cooked breakfast however breakfasts consist of different breads, bread rolls, butter, cheese, salami, ham or other delicious cold cuts, eggs, fruits, muesli, yoghurt, juice, coffee, tea, milk and are quite substantial.
Single rooms available at 160€ surcharge.
Please be aware of one major difference between single room accommodation in hotels in Germany and hotels in New Zealand: In Germany single rooms are in most cases not double rooms for single occupancy like in New Zealand, but often smaller rooms with a single bed (mostly 1 m wide by 2 m long).
Our bikes will be delivered to our first hotel and picked up at our final destination.
You can choose between women's and men's bicycles either with 7-speed gear shift and coaster brake or 21-speed gear shift and freewheel or electric bikes.
All women's bikes have a low opening that makes mounting and dismounting much easier. The bikes are suitable for all women from 150 cm in height and for all men from 165 cm in height. You simply specify your wishes at time of booking.
There are E-Bikes available at the additional cost of 100€
/ tour. These are offered on a first in first served basis as numbers are limited to a maximum of 3 E-Bikes per Tour.
Breakfasts are included at each hotel we stay at. Most German hotels do not offer cooked breakfast but breakfasts are quite substantial and include items such as different breads, bread rolls, butter, cheese, salami, ham or other delicious cold cuts, eggs, fruits, muesli, yoghurt, juice, coffee, tea, milk etc.
We do not include lunch and dinner as this will leaves you the choice of trying out whatever takes your fancy on the day. We will reserve a table for our group to be able to dine together but will make the decision on the day if we prefer a beer garden, a specialty restaurant, a pizzeria or the local pub.
Not only is the choice of meals yours, it also will save you a bit of money as ‘dining out’ is often a cheaper option than ordering a dinner menu in our accommodation place.
Our lunch breaks will be just as flexible – a stop at a German Bakery with their almost endless choices of delectable cakes, pastries and sandwiches, a beer garden with its regional fare, a picnic along the river trail, a tasty ‘Bratwurst’ from a market or one of the local specialties on route.
