The River Aller Cycle Route

Insider’s tip, between the Weser and the Elbe rivers!

Throughout its 328 kilometres, the Aller Cycle Route leads you through idyllic landscapes along the Aller, from its confluence with the Weser near Verden, to its source in Eggenstedt near Magdeburg. If you wish, you can follow the Aller-Elbe-Radweg from Seggerde, the direct feeder to the Elberadweg (Elbe Cycle Route).

Let the Aller guide you through the beautiful Aller-Leine Valley, the Südheide, the Drömling, the Flechtinger mountain range and on to its source.  Past meadows, pastures and pine forests, small towns, old farms, half-timbered houses and mills.

A practical helper is the Aller Cycle Path Guidebook, which offers help and tips for planning and also during your tour with a map, important information on the route sections, scenic sights and overnight accommodation.
