Bike, Barge and Cruise through the ‘Weser hills’ landscape and along the midland canal in Germany. Bike along the Weser Cycling Route - one of the most popular German cycle routes, and explore the cultural highlights offered by Hannover & Braunschweig (Brunswick). Follow in Theodor Fontane’s footsteps, and visit small villages in typical fairytale style. Cruise the Weser River and Midland Canal, as we head away from the standard tourist route. Take a look around the ‘Herrenhäusen Gardens' and Autostadt, the home of Volkswagen, through the included tours, and ultimately consider extending your holiday in Bremen, a 1200-year-old Hanseatic city that has much to offer.

 

Do you want to travel longer on the Merlin? This is an excellent trip to combine with the next Bike & Barge cruise WOLFSBURG - BERLIN, combined your tour will be from Bremen to Berlin and you will travel the Weser & whole Midland-canal connection.

My husband I just enjoyed a great week on board the Merlijn. We traveled along the Saar and Moselle rivers, seeing Germany, Luxembourg and France in a \"golden\" time of the year as the leaves were changing. We biked each day in the beautiful countryside and enjoyed many informative city tours along the way. Coen and Cristina were wonderful hosts, along with their staff. Cristina cooked us a delicious breakfast and 3 course dinner each day, as well as yummy bag lunches as we biked. Ilse was a fantastic bike guide and shared history of the areas we traveled through. The boat is beautifully maintained and this was the trip of a lifetime. We thank you for the great care you gave us and look forward to another trip on the Merlijn!
