Weser Uplands

Gentle hills with meadows and forests, cosy timber frame towns, numerous Weser Renaissance castles and fortresses, famous fairytale figures and of course the gentle flowing Weser – this is what makes the Weser Uplands so unique.  

The region is perfect for an active holiday, because the Weser cycle way goes straight through the heart of the Weser Uplands. It is one of the most popular German cycling routes leading you from the source point of the Weser in Hannoversch’ Münden right to the estuary of the North Sea. The Weser Uplands part of the cycling route is so attractive because there are so many sights along the way. Impressive fortresses, magnificent castles and historical towns with fairytale figures – such as Hameln and its Pied Piper or Baron Münchhausen of Bodenwerder – are lining the shores of the Weser inviting you to rest or trips.
