Underneath Pine and Willow Trees
Today, the 328-km-trail is among the most popular stretches in Northern Germany. Following alongside the River Aller, the route provides ample opportunities for exploration and discovery. This cycle route does not really boast its assets – rather, it lets you come to rest amidst meadows, pastures and pine forests.
Suggested route for a one-day tour: 54 km round trip starting from Schwarmstedt
Begin your journey in Schwarmstedt with its beautiful St Laurentius Church. From here you pass through varied forest and meadow landscapes all the way to Gilten, where you can relax at the fully functional Bothmer Mühle. Your route then leads you via Hadernsdorf to Marklendorf, where a true highlight awaits you: Two historic locks that are fully accessible and still in operation today – the ideal place to take a breather before embarking on your journey back to Schwarmstedt.
