Cycle Tour East Frisia & Ammerland

On this cycle tour you will explore the Ammerland and the Fehn region in East Frisia. The starting point of your tour is the magnificent residence town of the Oldenburg counts, a wide sky arches over the park-like landscape of the Ammerland and the endless former and active moors. The North Sea coast is maritime; a highlight is the excursion to the island of Borkum. This cycle tour in Ammerland and East Frisia is also best suited for the inexperienced.
