Cycling is part of German culture. People ride to work, using them for exercise or just for enjoyment.

Germany is a paradise for cyclists vacationers. There are scenic routes in the lush countryside, along rivers and vineyards. Most of them are peppered with culinary stops, monuments and UNESCO World Heritage sites making it a compelling experience.
